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.
Trapper Schoepp made the Midwest feel like home when we caught up with him in Milwaukee, his hometown and the subject of many songs. He was just coming off of a tour with The Jayhawks, having recently recorded with Brendan Benson in Nashville (we’re keeping an eye out for a new album in 2015), and his performance came complete with plenty of local fans requesting their favorite songs. Check out the video for “Run Engine Run” live at Aloft Milwaukee Downtown in the player above. Schoepp will be performing tonight at The Bowery Electric in New York, N.Y.
