Call Me Lightning has long been one of Milwaukee’s most popular indie-rock bands, packing clubs with its roaring mix of arena-rock stomp and punk-rock energy. The band’s 2010 album, When I Am Gone My Blood Will Be Free, is a typically hard-charging yet tuneful collection of songs—imagine if Tommy-era Who cut its teeth in Milwaukee’s Riverwest basement scene—and was easily the city’s best local record of that year. The band has slowly been putting together some new tunes, though hearing When I Am Gone’s giddily epic rockers blasted live is unlikely to grow old any time soon.
