Greetings! This second week of Make Milwaukee is a busy one.

Wednesday night brings a double header. The Washington Park Urban Ecology Center welcomes Stand Together Milwaukee and Public Allies for the screening of The Promise of America, the second film in New Moon Productions‘ documentary series Guns, Grief, and Grace In America. Be sure to get there for the (free) screening at 7pm and join in the circle discussion following the film.

Then, head over to the Jackalope Lounj for the first Miltown Beatdown, Milwaukee’s premiere showcase of producers and beatmakers. Battles rage from 10pm-Midnight and this week features:

Reason vs. Super Ego
Sam Winters vs. Big Stae-Puft
Adlib vs. Bent Halo

Thursday night delivers the much anticipated Super Noble Brothers documentary screening at the beautiful Oriental Theatre. Get there early to check out tables from sponsors like Wisconsin Foodie, Diablos Rojos (Trocadero, Fat Abbey, Cafe Hollander), Rishi Tea, and Tool Shed. Fashion Ninja gets the event started with a fashion show extravaganza at 7pm. Also not to be missed is the after party at Y-Not III featuring DJs from WMSE and RadioMilwaukee, and Andy Noble himself.

This weekend is Milwaukee’s winter Gallery Night and Day. Friday night you will find RadioMilwaukee celebrating Gallery Night at the Milwaukee Art Museum for the MAM After Dark series. Travel the galleries starting at 5pm, enjoy a free beer tasting from 7-9pm, and get ready for the 9 o’clock hour when break dance crews Motion Disorders and Super Force bring the party to a new level. Jordan will be MCing, Tarik will be on the tables, and Peter and I will be taking it all in.

(Saturday – breather. But maybe taking in the Juniper Tar/Invade Rome show at Cactus Club…)

On Sunday, the Marcus Center hosts their 25th Annual Martin Luther King Birthday Celebration. This event is free and open to the public. Check out various cultural arts performances in the Bradley pavilion from noon-2pm and at 2pm walk to Uihlein Hall where there will be interpretations of Dr. King’s words by Milwaukee’s youth through art, speech, and writing.

Hope to see you out there!
