Wisconsin welcomed another new venue on Thursday night. After Milwaukee’s Fiserv Forum opened its doors earlier in the month, 80 miles west, Madison, WI welcomed a brand new venue of its own with the grand opening of The Sylvee.
Just blocks away from Madison’s historic state capitol building, The Sylvee kicked things off with the soulful Colorado natives, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, for an especially memorable and sold-out evening. Located at 25 S. Livingston Street, The Sylvee is a beautiful 2,500 capacity general admission venue, and it couldn’t have invited a better act to get things started.
Opening with their track ‘Shoe Boot’, from their new album Tearing at the Seams, Rateliff and company delivered a great 20-song setlist that ended with an encore performance of ‘Hey Mama’ and ‘I’ll Be Damed’, although the Madison crowd was perhaps most engaged during the entertaining performance of the Night Sweats’ hit 2017 single, ‘S.O.B.’.
