What up Milwaukee Mondays!
For those of you who don’t know, “Milwaukee Mondays” are a result of a partnership between the Milwaukee Bucks and 88Nine Radio Milwaukee. In this six-week series, our Monday home games will feature local musicians performing at halftime, local designers creating one-of-a-kind “Milwaukee Originals” gear and even local food that will be presented throughout the game (Free Palermo's anyone?).
New Age Narcissism, NAN was the first music collective to perform and bring their unique and vibrant energy to the Bradley Center. In their about six-minute set, the collective showcased the skills of the group while performing a mash up of some favorites like 'Kinfolk,’ ‘Bango’ and ‘This Is Our Year.’
We were geeked and in a room full of potential new fans, they killed it.
However, while we loved seeing our local artist front and center on stage, we did receive feedback that there could have been improvements (on the Bucks end) for better sound quality and some fans even mentioned giving the artist more time to do what they do best.
We’re just excited to see the rest of what Milwaukee Mondays has to offer.
But we will say that NAN’s energy definitely could have been the main reason the Bucks won 109 to 88. Take that to the head. Bang! Bang! Bang! Bango!
