Untappd Tuesdays at Sugar Maple

Every Tuesday in December | 8pm | Next up: Tuesday, December 12th

Think you know your beer? Trying to get those ticks up before the new year? Join us every Tuesday in the month of December to test that palette!

Every 30 minutes starting at 8, we'll pour a RANDOM taste from a varying style giving you THREE guesses to choose the right brew from our menu. Choose right on the first guess - more points for you. Miss it entirely? Better luck next pour. Best out of 5 rounds. Let's see who in Milwaukee knows their stuff! Who knows, may even find a new favorite beer in a style you've never tried. Prizes for top 3 scores with tiebreaker pours if needed.

Did we mention it's FREE to play!? We'll have prizes to give away including Sugar Maple merchandise, brewery gear and gift certificates.

Who's going to be Milwaukee's first taster champion?

Last Monday of the Month @ The Sugar Maple


DKV Trio

Hamid Drake | Kent Kessler | Ken Vandermark
and Joe McPhee

Wednesday, December 27th | 8pm

Two Sets in the Back room | $15 | Doors at 7:30pm

What already promised to be an extraordinary evening of music- the celebration of DKV's album Latitude 41.88, which was recorded at the Sugar Maple in December of 2014- has been transformed into a landmark concert by the addition of Joe McPhee to the proceedings. The initial collaboration between Hamid Drake, Kent Kessler, Joe McPhee, and Ken Vandermark took place in Europe during November of this year, and their performance on December 27th at the Sugar Maple in Milwaukee will be the first time this quartet will perform together in North America.

The DKV Trio is one of the most exciting ensembles working in contemporary improvised music. Featuring Hamid Drake (drums), Kent Kessler (bass), and Ken Vandermark, the band has been active since the mid 1990s and has released eleven recordings, including their most recent album, which came out in the autumn of 2016: Collider (that features the trio paired with the Scandinavian group, The Thing).

Their 2014 five CD box set, Sound in Motion in Sound, was reviewed by the Free Jazz Collective as follows, "They are tighter, more explosive, and ingenious than ever. Imagine every DKV Trio’s signature element coming together in a remarkably dazzling, fiery display of musical prowess. There’s an almost palpable quality to the way that the musicians meld their ideas and approaches together. There’s groove propelled by Drake’s funky, loose drumming, there’s melody in the bass lines, there’s dissonance and conflict in Vandermark’s fluid, mercurial playing.

This is a great recording by an unmistakable, intense group of musicians with a sound and feeling of their own. That much is clear now. I would even dare to call this album their best to date. Inspired, full of energy, harmonically, rhythmically, and even melodically rich, capable of wonderfully recreating the joy of listening to DKV Trio live." 5 stars

2017 promises to be an exceptional year for the band: they will be releasing a new album on the label Not Two, called Latitude 41.88, have concerts scheduled in Canada during June, and in November they will tour in Europe with Joe McPhee as a guest for the first time in their career.

Hassles with Terrie Ex, Ken Vandermark, PNL & Norwegian Bassist

Saturday, January 13th | 8pm-10:30pm

Ken Vandermark returns to ALL with an exciting new ensemble. HASSLES is a brand new quartet built around a long list of histories: Paal Nilssen-Love (drums) and Ken (reeds) have been playing together as a duo for 15 years; Paal, Ken, and Terrie Ex (guitar) have been playing in Lean Left for almost a decade; and Paal has been collaborating with the Norwegian bassist in the Frode Gjerstad Trio since 2010.

Put together as a band for the first time in order to conclude Ken's second Stone residency at the beginning of January 2018, HASSLES will continue with a series of concerts in North America that includes dates on the East Coast, in Canada, and in the Midwest. Based on their previous collaborations, the music created by this lineup promises to be an electrifying and visceral inquiry of contemporary improvised music, post-punk, Tropicalia, and the freest jazz possible.
