Opener: Mike Benign Compulsion

Mike Benign CompulsionMelodic, well-crafted, driving, alt guitar pop that rocks. Band members Mike Benign, Joe Vent, Paul Biemann and Mike Koch are veterans of acclaimed Milwaukee-based acts like Blue in The Face, The Yell Leaders, Arms & Legs & Feet and The Joker’s Henchmen. Live shows include opener slots for Squeeze, Neil Finn (Crowded House), The Lemonheads, Bob Mould, Black Francis, Rhett Miller, Marshall Crenshaw and others. In 2014, The Mike Benign Compulsion released “Here’s How It Works,” the band’s third album. The Shepherd-Express called it “a magnificent tribute to the smart pop of Benign’s era—The Beatles as distilled through Squeeze and Crowded House with a twist of Elvis Costello for tartness.” The band’s fourth album, “Kid,” will be released May 16, 2017. The single “The Best Years of Our Lives” has been in steady rotation on 88nine Radio Milwaukee since summer of 2016.
