Milwaukee Band Panalure and Storytellers Ex Fabula Come Together Again in “Cabin Fever, Songs for a Cold Winter Night” at Anodyne Coffee.
Hosted by Anodyne Coffee, the show paired original songs of Panalure with personal stories by members of Ex Fabula. The performance, a repeat of last winter’s original partnership, drew a sell-out crowd.
“We really enjoyed working with Ex Fabula and the show brought together a new and very attentive audience,” said Fred Ziegler, Panalure’s vocalist and main songwriter. “The audience was there to listen because everyone loves a story. With Cabin Fever we’re taking the integration of Ex Fabula’s stories and Panalure’s music to the next level. The new batch of songs and stories in Cabin Fever are an invitation to come in from the cold of the Wisconsin winter and reflect on what it means to hunker down and go inside, both physically and emotionally.”
According to Megan McGee curator and director of Ex Fabula, “Panalure’s new songs are a bit more acoustic and intimate, giving us the opportunity to intertwine their songs and our stories in a way that will be even more exciting for the audience. We had a lot of fun with the first show and clearly the audience loved it.”
Panalure is comprised of vocalist and guitarist Fred Ziegler, Nathan Kilen on drums, Michael De Boer and Jason Klagstad on guitars, Ken Hanson on bass, and Kari Hoff on background vocals.
