Like the toppling of the Berlin Wall or the onset of puberty, it was bound to happen sooner or later: On Oct. 21, during fall Gallery Night, you can meet the one-and-only Milverine. Let that sink in for minute: You can meet Milverine. The once-elusive local legend will be appearing at the Too Much Rock For One Hand studio (207 E. Buffalo St., Suite 318) to sign your very own Milverine T-shirts, hang out, and—sigh—pose for pictures. And with that, ladies and gentlemen, a delightful inside joke is officially reduced to a Bon Jovi meet-and-greet. So it goes, bub.
The A.V. Club has long feared this day, and even went so far as to call the Milverine phenomenon officially played out. But posing for non-blurry, non-striding cell phone pictures at an art gallery? That’s the final adamantium nail in the coffin. Oh well, according to Too Much Rock, at least the dude stands to make a few bucks:
His name is John and here is your chance to meet and greet the walking legend. John will be available to sign your Milverine t-shirts and snap a photo. What you should know about this event: Too Much Metal will NOT take any profit from the sale of this t-shirt. All profits that you generate will be donated to John. We feel that’s the right thing to do. See you there...if you can find the courage. This is a moment to capture your imagination and celebrate Milwaukee’s epic perambulator.
Milverine—excuse us, John—will be available from 6 to 10 p.m., which may or may not put a crimp in his daily purposeful jaunt to Pick ’n Save. And while Oct. 21 will surely go down as the day the Milvie legend died, there is a bright side: This is the last time we’ll have to report on this once-glorious Milwaukee character. That is, of course, until we give you the full recap of his Gallery Night appearance, which we’re totally going to check out. Ugh, we feel awful already. See you there!
