Decadent Cabaret Unleashes 40th Anniversary Show Lineup

It’s truly a landmark year for Decadent Cabaret, one of Eau Claire’s longest running musical institutions. The locally grown music festival – which often finds a multitude of local bands doing elaborate tribute sets – is celebrating its 40th anniversary this spring with a killer lineup of 34 different acts. It all goes down over three full days and nights of music Feb. 28 through March 1 at the fest’s new home The Metro. After four decades of bringing together some of the best bands in the Chippewa Valley music scene, there’s clearly no steam lost. And hey, in addition to all the face-melting music, the Torch Sisters will perform and there will be a full art gallery by Artisan Forge Studios. Nightly tickets are $10, but $25 will cover all three nights.
