CASPER, Wyo. — Downtown will be buzzing with music options on Thursday both during and after the August edition of the Casper Art Walk.

Just as the 5–8 p.m. Casper Art Walk officially wraps up, a lineup featuring four Wyoming bands will get underway at 8 p.m. Thursday at the Bourgeois Pig, 114 W. 2nd St.

“It is a stacked bill,” said Brandon Schulte, who helped organize the show. “It is going to be a way good show.”

The headliner will be Dirt Sucker, a three-piece Laramie band that recently put out a recording on Convulse Records that Schulte described as one of the “premier hardcore labels in the country.” Convulse Records itself has Wyoming roots, having started here before moving to Denver, Schulte noted.

Dirt Sucker recently completed a tour through the Midwest, and Schulte said he has a feeling that the band is on the brink of really making a name for itself.

“They’ve got a lot of heat behind them,” he said. “I got a weird feeling Dirt Sucker may be on pathway to being a big deal.”

Thursday night’s show will also feature a performance by Brain Sweat, a band that recently moved from Casper to Laramie.

“They play pretty noisy avant-garde rock,” Schulte said, adding that Brain Sweat’s music has a lot of different textures and influences.

Prowler, a Cheyenne-based garage punk band featuring sisters Kelsi and Ana Rivera and Hannah Weir, will also play on Thursday.

Schulte himself will perform with the band Penny Auction alongside fellow members Spike Jordan and Joelle Spring.

The show at the Bourgeois Pig is only one option for music downtown. During the Casper Art Walk, other shows are set to include:

  • Jim Halsey and Kaspen Haley as The Rug Cutters starting at 6 p.m. Thursday at Frontier Brewing Co., 150 W. 2nd St.
  • Jeremy Huck at Racca’s Pizzeria, 430 S. Ash St.
  • Ashley Suggs at The Table, 230 W. Yellowstone highway.

There will also be a downtown show at David Street Station by Wyoming’s Prairie Wildfire Band opening at 6 p.m. Thursday, followed by an 8 p.m. show by Lendon James & the HWY 34 Band.
