VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Rachael Thompson
Our Music Director, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
Today, Ben talks with Rachael Thompson, who has been involved in the Milwaukee DIY scene for well over a decade. She has played in bands Iron Pizza, Pussy Collector, Tell Me, and more. They discussed Rachael’s early days of sneaking off to Riverwest punk shows as a teenager, her various old bands, evaluating ourselves during quarantine, supporting Cactus Club, and how much we miss live music.
