I’ve been waiting to officially announce our Muzzle of Bees showcase for this year’s Madison Pop Fest. While we are still finalizing a few details and surprises, I can’t withhold my excitement that we managed to land recent Jagjaguwar singee Bon Iver, whose album For Emma, Forever Ago easily one of the best albums of the year, and now will certainly have the reach it deserves with the help of our friends at Jagjaguwar.

On Saturday, November 10th, join us at the Music Hall on the University of Wisconsin campus for our showcase which will also feature Madison’s very own The Selfish Gene and Common Loon from Champaign, IL.

We’re thrilled and honored to be working with the fine peeps at the WUD Music Committee as well as fellow Madison blog I’m Just Sayin’ Is All… who is also holding a showcase on Saturday.

There are lots of great options for live music on that Saturday, but it’s my sincere hope you’ll swing by the MoB showcase and check out Bon Iver before he gets even bigger, plus he’s a Wisconsin boy!
