When you meet Them Coulee Boys (say, in the dark days of a Wisconsin winter for beers at Eau Claire’s legendary townie dive bar, The Joynt) you can’t help but to cheer for them. You may even want to somehow throw down the deliriously boring shackles of your own life and become their roadie, or perhaps a pure-of-heart groupie.You certainly want to buy them a pitcher of beer, or, at the very least, their albums. They are, as Royal Tenenbaum once said, “true blue”. From the very first line, this record is an invitation out of the claustrophobia of one’s own mind, and into something more open, free, and communal. And in this way, Die Happy represents the best of rock and folk music too, because the best music calls us to celebrate with one another, to touch one another, to sing with one another.
This year’s festival will showcase arts and arts-connected work that celebrates female-identified artists, challenges patriarchal structures, and/or disrupts gender norms in the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences. In addition to spotlight events with our invited guests – Ingrid Stözel, Maegan Crowley, and DESSA – the festival will include workshops, exhibits, presentations, and performances created by UWL students, faculty, and staff.
