Get up to speed on Juiceboxxx, a punk-rap upstart and self-proclaimed “Milwaukee Maniac,” before his free show at Thunder Road in Somerville on Friday, September 14 at 7 p.m.


THE BAND: Juiceboxxx came up as an artist in the burgeoning noise, punk, and underground rap scenes of Wisconsin in the 2000s. He fuses rap and rock together unironically, switching gears from Public Enemy-styled hip-hop to alt-rock riffs that bring Pixies to mind.


HOME BASE: Milwaukee


GENRE: Punk Rap


SONG TO KNOW: “Freaked Out American Loser,” a summer staple here at indie617, and the title track from his most recent album, released last year on Dangerbird Records.


SHOW TO HIT UP: The indie617 Free Show with Juiceboxxx at Thunder Road in Somerville on Friday, September 14 at 7 p.m. Watch this space to grab your ticket to this exclusive event starting on Thursday, September 6 at noon.
