Tonight at Madison Live will be a local music showcase like no other! Join Trauma Illinois, Rockstead, Season Ten, Bazhooley and Multimagic for a very special night.

Trauma Illinois has been turning heads in the local rock and roll scene since 2017. They have had a myriad of successful or sold shows at legendary local venues such as Radio Artifact, Madison Live, & Bogart's. They began as high schoolers attempting a career in the near impossible. Since then, they’ve performed in 15+ US States, at sold-out festivals around the midwest including two performances at Bunbury Music Festival, and operate their own recording studio where they record/produce themselves.

"Rhythmic. Authentic. Melodic. Soulful. Energetic. These are all words that best describe Cincinnati-known band Rockstead." - Matt St. George of CincyMusic. The feeling of love. The power of unity. The essence of happiness. The strength of togetherness and positive vibrations. The highs of living life and the lows of dealing with its obstacles. All of these things encapsulate the music of Rockstead.

Cincinnati writers and guitarists Jared Metz and Alex Sarkisov started Season Ten in High School, but real progress began when drummer Alex Murphy-White’s entered during their time in college. Jared’s writing style was always flowing between Psych, Art, and indie pop, and both Alex’s were there to pick it up and refine the initial ideas. Later joined Brian Neinaber, Tyler Wichus, and currently Michael Villareal on guitar, bass, and harmonies.

Born out of the hottest heat of the Cincinnati summer, raised by lightning, and here to play what they coin "New American Rock 'n Roll." Bazhooley's aim is to provide today's dreamers with the soundtrack to chasing down the things that are bigger than themselves.

Multimagic is an American indie pop band from Ohio and the stage name of songwriter and producer Coran Stetter.
