The duo's funkarelic style also covers popular songs on soprano, tenor, baritone, and micro-bass ukuleles. Deck jams eventually moved to driveway sessions during the pandemic for neighbors to celebrate music while listening to unique renditions of Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven, the Beatles Here Comes The Sun, David Crosby’s Long Time Gone and Southern Cross, Tom Petty tunes, and a host of other favorites from Rock, Folk, and Americana artists -- as well as our own Roadkill Blues and more!"

The members of Our Flag Means ROCK are gals in bookish nerd professions who met when they were five and who have been making up goofy lyrics to songs since approximately 1993. We have several taglines–choose your favorite: 

“Some women are born to be in tribute bands. Others learn on the job. Us? We’re a pretty solid mix of both.” 

“We’ve never heard an Our Flag Means Death tribute band before, so to us we sound amazing.” 

“We think we’re just so-so, but we’ve chosen to carry ourselves like we rock”.

At 7:00pm, we welcome Adult Book Club: "Formed in 2022 at the Madison Music Foundry, Adult Book Club has evolved into a powerhouse trio with a growing library of literature-inspired songs. Their debut 'Chapter I' EP, released on November 10 2023, features a dynamic blend of intricate guitar riffs, energetic drumming, and literature-inspired lyrics. ​ Adult Book Club's music is a reflection of their diverse influences, drawing inspiration from various rock and punk subgenres as well as the pages of timeless novels. Their music can veer from pop punk anthems to emo ballads to metalcore breakdowns, sometimes over the course of a single song. And while song titles like Catcher in the Rye and Brave New World may make their setlist look like a syllabus for a high school English class, there is no required reading for an Adult Book Club show."
