The book tells the history of rock music in Milwaukee through a series of written, vocal and visual reflections from various voices— musicians, promoters, DJs, photographers, artists and audience members— who are all collectively committed to the sounds of a great city. Dan Johnson, retired chief photographer for Marquette, was the art editor.
Hosted by Boswell, the event will feature a book signing as well as a special performance by “Lil Rev and Friends,” Milwaukee’s award-winning folksinger and instrumentalist. The store will remain open until 10 p.m.
