Overture Center’s MadCity Sessions returns for another season of free concerts live from the Capitol Theater stage. Each date will feature two local or regional bands performing between 7:30-10 p.m.with space to dance and drinks available for purchase.
The series will begin November 9 with Better Yeti and VO5. On January 18, Kinfolk will take the stage along with The Big Payback. The April 12 show will feature Kyle Megna & the Monsoons and The Lucas Cates Band.
“MadCity Sessions provides a unique way for Madison music fans to discover new music and hear their favorite local/regional musicians in a new way—outside the bar or festival scene and in an intimate theater,” said Tim Sauers, Overture’s VP of programming and community engagement. “For the 2017/18 season, the shows will again be free and live in the Capitol Theater with plenty of space for dancing and double-headlined shows ranging from quirky bands like Better Yeti to Madison-based R&B band Kinfolk and award-winning jazz-rock group The Big Payback.”
For the first time last season, the series was moved from Overture Hall Lobby to the Capitol Theater to give the audiences a different experience and offer the bands the opportunity for professional performance on the historic stage.
