Milwaukee Day

Matthew Reddin, Contributing writer

Milwaukee Day isn’t just a little social media thing anymore. It now has the power to resurrect the departed. Departed bands, that is. On April 14 (4-14 — get it?), Turner Hall Ballroom will be the site of not one, but two Milwaukee reunions: indie rockers Decibully, whose members are coming from opposite coasts and haven’t played together in three years; and folk artists Juniper Tar, whose lead singer is returning from Colorado. They’ll be joined by Whips, a new group that includes current and ex-members of Call Me Lightning, Red Knife Lottery and The Academy Is . . . Add in appearances by Milwaukee’s roller derby crew the Brew City Bruisers, comedy from The Midnite Show and Tom Higgins, and (because things weren’t crazy enough) the burlesque/wrestling troupe Mondo Lucha and you’ve got a line-up with dizzying potential. At Turner Hall Ballroom, 1034 N. Fourth St. Tickets are $10. Call 414-286-3663 or go to

7 p.m. on Mon., April 14
