This Weekend in Milwaukee: Bastille Days (July 8-11)

July 8, 2010 — Leave a comment

Tonight’s “Storm the Bastille” 5K, the annual lead in to Milwaukee’s celebration of berets and towers named after men named Eiffel, led thousands of smiling sweaty runners and walkers through the streets of downtown.  This year’s festival features some great talent in Milwaukee native and favorite Paul Cebar (July 8), The Dirty Dozen Brass Band (July 9), Lisa Haley and the Zydecats (July 10), and Appleton native Cory Chisel closes out the weekend with his band the Wandering Sons (July 11).  Do yourself a favor and check out this truly unique festival in the middle downtown Milwaukee.  And if for some reason you are unable to attend you can still achieve a French feel by eating Nutella smothered crepes while watching this video of my  favorite froggy import over and over again.

When I think of France I think of amazing electropop.  Well there’s that and game changing headbutts.
