Madison synth punk supergroup featuring members of The Hussy, Fire Heads, Poney, No Hoax, And Illusions, etc, releasing their debut LP on FDH Records, with limited cassette versions available on Rare Plant!
The Cult of Lip
formerly known as Vats, these dreamy shoegaze rockers from Minneapolis released their latest endeavor, Your Feedback, on Rare Plant earlier this year! For fans of blistering guitars and/or the Cocteau Twins
featuring members of many local acts, such as Christian Dior, We Should Have Been DJs, Miyha, Minotaurs, Double Ewes, etc, Tippy is equally emotive and captivating. Spencer Bible brings a much needed force of positive masculinity not only in our small music scene but also the WORLD!! Tippy will be re-releasing their self-released EPs on cassette at this show!
forged from an unexpected love of Oasis, Sundial Mottos boasts members of a variety of Milwaukee projects, such as Midnight Reruns, Apollo Vermouth, Midwives, Lord Brain, etc. Expect to see their debut EP on cassette in the near future!
local power-poppers with members of The Hussy, Fire Heads, Psychic Drag, Cool Building, etc, released their first full-length, Sharon is Karen, at the very first Rare Plant showcase in 2016!
Got a gig coming up? A CD coming out? A new bass player who looks like Jesus and smells like a field of posies? If you're selling or promoting something, post it here.

Based in Madison, the self-described "small tape label" Rare Plant has grown into a driving force in the Minneapolis-Madison-Milwaukee DIY connection. They've released a flurry of physical releases that range from solid to exciting, bringing locals like Trophy Dad or Proud Parents and the Twin Cities' The Cult Of Lip under the same banner. Combing through Rare Plant's catalog forges a sense that this region of the country, often thought of as a cultural backwater or Chicago-centric, has a sound and aesthetic of its own. The showcase doubles as a celebration for the release of Cave Curse's new LP Future Dust, a densely layered sequence of synth-driven punk songs, heavily inspired by Digital Leather with a focus on spacey hooks and Bobby Hussy's wild, Jay Reatard-esque vocal delivery. It's the project's debut full-length and its first release since Hussy solidified Cave Curse's new live lineup with Ben Brooks and Tyler Spatz of Poney and No Hoax, and Emili Earhart of And Illusions (who writes for Tone Madison), though the album itself features just Hussy and drummer Will Gunnerson. With a stellar series of openers—Cult Of Lip, Proud Parents, Tippy, and Sundial Mottos—and DJ Lauden rounding out the night, this show is the celebration of Upper Midwest music we deserve. —Reid Kurkerewicz
