Big thanks to Tom for asking to meet up with Sean and I and taking the time to write this awesome piece.
“I think in some ways Riverwest has, not a bad reputation, but people can be a little nervous about the neighborhood,” says co-organizer of the festival Sean Heiser. “Something as simple as a two-day music festival that brings in a really diverse crowd and gets people walking around the area can bring a lot of good attention to the venues and the neighborhood.”
“Even though that lofty goal may, as of right now, remain unattained, there’s no doubt that the first Riverwest Fest was a rousing success when it came to bringing people together in the interest of celebrating Milwaukee music, the people who make it, and the places that support it. Happily, there’s no indication that things will be any different this time around, or, for that matter, the next.”
