It has been a little over a year since Kongos made their Milwaukee debut opening for The Airborne Toxic Event.
Since then they have been through Wisconsin a few other times. Now the guys are returning to The Rave for their first headlining show.
This time they are bringing along FM102/1 artists Sir Sly and Colony House. By now you know Kongos hit songs “Come With Me Now” and “I’m Only Joking”. Now see their high energy, high impact live show. Be sure to get to The Rave early to check out the openers Sir Sly and Colony House.

Passion Pit have heard your pleas and answered your prayers -- Earlier this year the Massachusetts quartet released the first song from their upcoming album Kindred and starting today you can hear the new single “Lifted Up (1985)” right here on FM102/1.
Consistent as ever, the band has etched its name in the synth pop sound that is very prevalent in the indie scene. Unlike other bands of this very specific genre, Passion Pit make it sound fresh. “Lifted Up (1985)” has similarities to “Little Secrets”, “Take A Walk” and “The Reeling” but it also has a stand-alone feel to it. Check out the video and let us know what you think.
