Pearl Street Brewery is hosting national touring Smells Like Nirvana

Pearl Street Brewery is hosting national touring Smells Like Nirvana, taking place Saturday June 15, 2019.  Smells Like Nirvana is composed of seasoned pros and die-hard-fans of Nirvana, fronted by Paul Wandtke (ex Trivium, Dead Original), Nick Shabatura on drums and Mike Petrasek (Bedlem).

Their live tribute to Nirvana is a haunting episode of grunge filled angst playing songs from Nirvana’s albums Bleach, Nevermind, In Utero and MTV Unplugged as well as rare b-sides and more; played without click tracks or backing tracks, a trait that is rare in today’s contemporary musical landscape, a trait and philosophy that Nirvana lived by.

Attendees can make a song request for this show via: www.smellslikenirvanatribute.com

What: Smells Like Nirvana

When: Saturday, June, 15 2019 | $12 / $15 Day of Show | 7pm | 21+  Purchase on the APP

Award Winning Brewery Makes a Mediocre Beer, or did it….?

“I could have a few of these”

– Michelle from Holmen, WI

La Crosse WI:  Pearl Street Brewery, known for brewing a wide variety of award winning beers has released what seems at first blush, to be a lackluster addition to their line-up.  The initial release of the beer in 2018 was at that time embraced with casual shrug and general groan of indifference.

The Award Winning Pearl Street Brewery stated that “Shitty Lyte” Beer was our answer to “Got anything light?” For 18 years Joe Katchever Owner, Founder, Brewmaster, Production Manager, Beer Aficionado  has always answered this question with, “We don’t make shitty light beer”. And they never did. “Then someone said that we couldn’t do it. Well that was a challenge, and when it comes to beer, we love challenges.”

Shitty Lyte Beer was initially met with minor enthusiasm but now positive testimonials are trickling in from some parts of Wisconsin:

 

“This ain’t too bad” 

– Wayne from Minocqua, WI

“Hey! This isn’t really that shitty at all” 

– Verne from Milwaukee, WI

“It’s pretty good shit, actually”

– Bill from Spooner, WI

“It’s kinda like they finally figured out how to make beer”

– Matt from Cedar Grove, WI

 

So how did Pearl Street Brewery take the traditional American Light Mega-Lager and make it better?  Pearl Street Brewery reported that they made it fresher, using local ingredients with an unpasteurized finish and cold fermented it with a single strain of clean lager yeast With inclusion of the quality aquifers of La Crosse County and the Mississippi River Valley, the beer is now available and can be utilized to boil brats, give to in-laws and perhaps drink yourself.

Pearl Street Brewery to Host Kind Country Album Release 

Pearl Street Brewery to Host Kind Country Album Release 

Saturday April 13, 2019

$7 Adv & $10 DOS | 7pm Doors | 21+ | Get Tickets

 

Pearl Street Brewery is hosting national touring Kind Country’s album release party with opening act The Wooks Saturday April 13, 2019. Kind Country is a Minneapolis based band that plays American standards as well as their own brand of “Cosmic American music”. Since their formation in 2012, the band has focused on creating live performances with high levels of improvisation and energy.

Kentucky natives, The Wooks will also be hitting the stage, they state their music translates the sights and sounds of the people, hills, bars, roads, and creeks around them into songs and shows that captivate. With both respect for their heritage and innovative originality, The Wooks are the natural evolution of a sound that has always been there.

 

Kind Country Press

kindcountryband.com

“These guys have something special going on, with the addition of drums allowing the group to go deeper in exploring how bluegrass can morph and intersect with other genres and giving them the freedom to create a sound that is truly their own. However, they still stay true to their string-band origins and bluegrass roots, with their energetic playing and the talent among the six players more-or-less guaranteeing a foot-stompin’ good time.”-  

– Ming Lee Newcomb – Live for Live Music

 

The Wooks Press

wookoutamerica.com

“What has happened, in largely organic fashion, is a string-music sound that recalls renegade innovators John Hartford and David Grisman as much as roots driven sources Bill Monroe and Flatt & Scruggs, along with improv-savvy interplay that endears the band to jam music fans and bluegrass traditionalists alike.”

Lexington Herald -Leader
