Are you in a band? Are you a singer/songwriter? Do you just know of a local band or performer that you think we definitely need to hear? Well, now is your time. Neighborhood Watch is a weekly show that compiles the best in local music. Each week your host Suzanne takes you through the best that Milwaukee has to offer. This includes debuting new songs, interviewing bands and talking about everything going on in the Milwaukee music scene.
Since spring is here, and in full effect we thought what better time than now to discover some new Milwaukee music. So that is where we need your help! We know some of you are the creative types and in bands. Let us give you your first break. If you have a Band Camp page, digital copy of your album or EP we’d love to hear it. Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. If we like it you might hear your band on an upcoming episode of Neighborhood Watch, Sunday nights at 11 p.m.

Milwaukee is fortunate to have three venues that are perfect for comedians of any type. There are comedians like Mike Birbiglia, Jim Gaffigan and Jim Jeffries that frequent Milwaukee on each of their tours but for every Jim Gaffigan, there are comedians like Maria Bamford who don’t make it to Milwaukee very often. Well April Fools Day is our lucky day, Milwaukee. Do not miss out on seeing her. She is one of the most consistently funny comedians around. I could describe how funny she is, but I will let her comedy do the talking for her. Below are two very funny bits of hers.
