After 10 years of music and community, The Frequency will be closing their doors June 30, 2018. The Frequency has been honored to be a part of the rich and diverse local music scene in Madison, WI. When The Frequency opened its doors in June of 2008, Darwin Sampson had a dream of a local music venue that would foster local musicians and highlight regional/national touring bands. Darwin has more than fulfilled this dream. From providing a home to Clyde Stubblefield, hosting punk stalwarts like The Dwarves, and being a launching pad for artist like The Lumineers and Macklemore, The Frequency has been an important part of the music scene.
As the local entertainment scene has changed in Madison, The Frequency has worked to keep up with every twist and turn along the way. While The Frequency had been able to keep its doors open during extensive street construction, increased costs and low revenue has put us in a position where we need to take some time off to re-evaluate the business as a whole. So, we are placing the concept of The Frequency in storage until further notice. Our last date of business will be June 30, 2018. All shows booked through June 30, 2018 will be honored. All other booking is currently suspended.
Our celebration of 10 years of music and a thank you to the community will be Friday June 8, 2018 and Saturday June 9, 2018. These two nights will feature some old and new favorites of The Frequency like Cribshitter, the Skintones, Dead Rider, The Beer Nuts, Cheer Accident, Salamander Exhibit, Faun Fables, and more to be announced.
The Frequency would like to especially thank Terrin Riemer, Ricky Riemer, Cathy Dethmers, Larry Lichte, all our employees present and past, every artist that we have worked with, every patron who has ever walked through our door, the local press, and city officials who have been an intricate part of making The Frequency a success these past ten years.
