For the third year in a row, Paste is teaming up with Aloft Hotels to take our Live at Paste sessions on the road, stopping at 20 locations around the country to shoot one-of-a-kind live performances and inviting fans and readers out to be a part of the process. This year, though, we get to be a part of their 100 Days of Music series, a celebration of the opening of Aloft’s milestone 100th hotel opening early next year.
We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be joined in Milwaukee by locally-based musician Trapper Schoepp, who’s snagged opening slots on the road with The Jayhawks, Frank Turner and many more. His 2012 release with his band The Shades, Run, Engine, Run, caught our ears for its strong storytelling, are we’re even more excited to see what’s next for Schoepp: he’s just finished recording a in Nashville with producer Brendan Benson, and the new music is set for release next year. Join us at Aloft Milwaukee Downtown for an exclusive performance from Schoepp. The music will begin at 6:30 p.m. In the meantime, check out Shoepp & the Shades’ official video for Run, Engine, Run’s “Tracks” in the player below.
