Copper Box & Friends at Barley & Hops on October 11


The fourth installment of Independent Racket Nights is just around the corner, with Copper Box, Auralai and Cold Soda Club all sharing the stage for a loaded evening of music at Barley & Hops in downtown Oshkosh.

The show kicks off early at 7:30pm with Auralai.  Cold Soda Club will then play a full set before Copper Box takes the stage and closes out the evening.

Independent Racket Nights original music series features 19 bands playing at 4 rotating venues* on Thursdays, with early set times and a second band from out of town.  All shows are 21+ and have no cover.

The shows are sponsored by Bare Bones Brewery, and will each feature two craft beers from the Oshkosh brewery. Additional sponsors include Offbeat Press, The Exclusive Company, Visit Oshkosh, and the Oshkosh Independent.

  • November 1 @ O’Marro’s with Horace Greene, the Redhawks (Appleton), and Spy vs Spy
  • December 6 @ Fletch’s with Redshift Headlights, the Tapebenders (Mke), and The Present Age
