From museum tours to record shopping, there are plenty of things to do this Black Friday other than taking part in the annual Running Of The Moms. Friday is also chock-full of great live shows, and one of the best will take place at Turner Hall, where Milwaukee’s Trapper Schoepp And The Shades will celebrate the release of their newest album, Run, Engine, Run.
Run, Engine, Run is the group’s first release since 2009’s Lived And Moved, and represents a huge step forward in its laid-back, roots-rock sound. You can stream seven of the albums 12 tracks now at the band’s Soundcloud page, or listen to a live performance of Engine’s terrific lead-off track, “So Long,” below. Friday’s show also marks the final hurrah for the .357 String Band, who share the bill with Trapper Schoepp and Those Poor Bastards.
