Dead Horses — Dec. 9 and 10

Wisconsin Americana-bluegrass band Dead Horses has crafted a sound informed as much by modern folk as it is by the classics. The group has performed with Trampled by Turtles, Mandolin Orange, and Elephant Revival, as well as on main stages at Bristol Rhythm and Roots, Americana Music Festival, and Red Ants Pants. Dead Horses’ latest album, Cartoon Moon, features Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo) on drums, and was recorded at Coomer’s studio.

8 p.m. on Dec. 9 and 10 at The Back Room at Colectivo Coffee in Milwaukee; $15;
