VIDEO: Mr. Nice Guy with Loud Library
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 sat down with alternative pop-indie rock band Loud Library – vocalist/bassist Ben Smith, guitarist Garrett Holm, and drummer Judicael Bationo. Their sophomore EP “Shades of Loud” dropped in 2020. They discussed Loud Library’s formation, getting hungry at night, Milwaukee venues they miss, the last EP, and their summer shows – they play Taste of Wisconsin on July 29th, Chill on the Hill on August 9th (National Book Lovers’ Day – get it?) and the Illinois State Fair in Springfield on August 12th. The video unfortunately failed for the last third or so of the interview. But thankfully the audio survived!
