RAW natural born artists: Milwaukee

After more than a year hiatus RAW natural born artists is back in Wisconsin! While the showcases will no longer be held in Madison, the RAW coordinators have been working behind the scenes to make the showcases returning to Milwaukee bigger and better than before. They will be held every other month at The Rave and will include more artists per showcase than in the past.

The MFN attended the premier showcase on April 9th at The Rave in Milwaukee to help welcome RAW back to Wisconsin and to check out all the talent.
