101x is putting on another Homegrown live at Scoot Inn on Wednesday and features What Made Milwaukee Famous front-man Michael Kingcaid performing with The Motts.  Fellow locals TV Torso and Western Ghost House will be joining in for support.  Sorry for the lack of info on door times and price, but I tried my best.  I LOVE it when no one seems to know shit about an event put on by a big local radio station.  Seriously.  Anyone have more details?
