Take a two-wheeled tour of Milwaukee with The Fatty Acids and Cream City Soundcheck
More Visual Audio
It was only a matter of time before the city’s hardest working band, The Fatty Acids, collided with the city’s hardest working music documentary series, Cream City Soundcheck. Created by the students of UW-Milwaukee’s doc|UWM program, Cream City Soundcheck follows local bands as they explore various cultural nooks and crannies of Milwaukee, and watches as they perform in various historic venues. Past videos have found Trapper Schoepp And The Shades navigating the old Downtown Books, Kane Place Record Club playing Turner Hall and surviving the East Side’s annual “Tomato Romp,” and the members of Maritime wrangling their kids and enjoying some frozen custard. The latest video in the series is even more ambitious: a day-long bike trip with The Fatty Acids.
Not content to simply film the group during a typically raucous Turner Hall show, Cream City Soundcheck tags along as the band members tune up their bikes at Dream Bikes, learn a few things about Growing Power, wind their way along the Oak Leaf Trail, and make a pit stop at the Estabrook Beer Garden. Come for the terrific concert footage, stay for the scene of the band sharing a giant pretzel.
