Where to party: Eagles Ballroom
Dominic Lalli: "You wouldn’t think it’s much, but Milwaukee is like a mini-Chicago. We do massive shows up there at this place called Eagles Ballroom. It’s this massive hall with four venues inside, [with] this weird, haunted style. There’s an emptied-out pool in the middle with all this graffiti that, apparently, is where Jeffrey Dahmer went and found people and, well, you know. We usually play this crazy weird, old room that holds like 3,500 people."
Where to party: State Theater
Jeremy Salken: "Michigan goes really hard. Midwest people know that, but other people don’t fully realize how hard Midwesterners go. The Electric Forest [Festival] is really close to there. We played this theater that’s 1,600 seats; it was sold out in advance and all these kids were just ready to go to town. It was a really old, historic-looking theater. That’s one of those places that any time we can hit it, we try to show those kids love because they really come out."
