WMSE’s Local/Live Presents B~Free w/ Foreign Goods
Broadcasting Live From Club Garibaldi!
WMSE presents Local/Live with B~Free broadcasting live from Club Garibaldi – 2501 S. Superior Street — on Tuesday, Nov. 1. Join WMSE and Milwaukee’s B~Free by listening over the airwaves or by participating as an audience member; it is FREE and open to the 21+ public!
B~Free’s release Ode contains sound inspirations from Musiq Soulchild, Dwele, J-Dilla and Jill Scott. It is a conceptual album that traverses the ups and downs of romantic relationships, vulnerability, passion and compromise. Production for the album began in 2013 but was interrupted by a lengthy vocal trauma that would leave the artist unable to speak or sing for months. Following a vocal cord surgery and traumatic year of recovery, B~Free became more dedicated than ever to share her musical gifts.
Hailed by The Shepherd Express as an “immaculately constructed R&B record,” with a style rooted in ‘90s R&B/neo Soul and traces of present day influences, Ode not only represents the many trials and turmoil of love, but the personification of an artist’s loss and reclaiming of her gift.
WMSE Music Director Erin Wolf and co-host Cal Roach will lead B~Free and Foreign Goods through questions in between their live sets. As an audience member, you can get in on the interview, too. Submit your questions to Cal and Erin, who will ask them live on the air.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m., segment runs from 6 to 7 p.m.
If you can’t join us for the live segment and show at Club Garibaldi, please tune in, per usual, to 91.7 FM (or stream online at WMSE.org) at the 6 o’clock hour.
Local/Live on WMSE is sponsored by The Garage.
