Sweeping Promises

Only 14 days until the spectacular musical extravaganza, Tropical Heatwave!

Get ready to experience an incredible lineup featuring 17 bands across 3 electrifying stages, plus a Hip Hop Lounge. Don’t miss out – secure your tickets now for just $40 and prepare for a night of unforgettable entertainment!

Hailing from the heartland of the Midwest and the yellow brick road leading to Oz, indie darlings  “Sweeping Promises”  deliver on the promises of the early post punks by creating a cacophony of angular sounds created from the d.i.y. ethos (punk 101)… The dynamic duo of Lira Mundal (vocalist/bass) and Caufield Shnug (rythmn guitar) will musically, live, take you back to the days of Television, Pere Ubu, Wire, This Heat and early 2000 post punk pioneers Erase Errata.

And….since Lira was a former pastry chef, maybe bring a few cookies along for the mystical journey (or just let them eat cake…lol)..,Don’t miss their exciting display of power and passion at WMNF’S Tropical heatwave 2024…!!!
