Dead Horses & special guest Joe Pug

 —  —

The Pabst Theater, 144 E. Wells St., Milwaukee

Blending elements of traditional roots with contemporary indie folk, Wisconsin-based band Dead Horses headlines their first show at the Pabst Theater. Their music is both familiar and unexpected, unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in its unshakable faith in brighter days to come.

After releasing their nationally-acclaimed 2018 album My Mother the Moon, which earned profiles from Billboard to Democracy Now!, Dead Horses spent the better half of the last year touring, including their debut Red Rocks Amphitheater show with Trampled by Turtles last summer. Two singles, “Family Tapes” and “Mighty Storm,” have already come out this year with more music slated to release throughout the year.
