my boyrfiend's sister lives in Oshkosh. It's small. She seems to know everyone. It's got a cute and quaint downtown....NO music scene, but a tight art community from what I understand..if this is the sorta answer you're looking for.

an awesome supper club, pizza joint and CD store all on the main street. well, everything is on the main street. that's all i got on Oshkosh.

Oshkosh sucks. There are shows there infrequently, no music scene in terms of good local bands there but there are people who live there that are in bands from elsewhere in the Valley. The Reptile Palace is actually a pretty fun bar where OK bands play every once in a while, and there's a small but enthusiastic music scene based around that bar and some basements (Dead Hookers, Jetty Boys, etc., have played shows there). From Kaukauna to Oshkosh it's one long suburb, so you can go 10 minutes and be in exciting Appleton or 5 to be in even more exciting Neenah. Check out Paul and JonE Reject's old stomping grounds while you are there.

Arman - if you'll be in the area, I work in Appleton which is about 10 minutes away. Let me know and you can buy me a beer.

Oh, as for non-music stuff, I don't know of anything other than a good bistro downtown (can't remember the name, though). Cranky Pat's in Neenah is good pizza, though. It's a small college town with small college town hippies & small college town frat-types and not much else.

5 to be in even more exciting Neenah


i think that's where all the sewer grates and manhole covers in chicago are made.

My only experience with Oshkosh is the skatepark...which is outdoor, concrete, and fun. The town itself looks boring as all get out though.

I think they might be the nation's sewer grate and manhole cover make of choice cuz all the one's in my town (or at least my part of town) say Neenah on them. Whenever I see one I think "Teenage Rejects"!

those things are distributed everyone! i saw them in phoenix.

so is the foundry like the company town in neenah?

yes, they are all over the united states... but so are manhole covers from east jordan, MI.... i got a whole photo series of such things - i like foundry markings. in texas, however, they forge their own manhole covers.

pretty fun park. use to go there all the time when i was young boy. they fucked up on the halfpipe when they built it though. there are a ton of outdoor skateparks made out of metal that have popped up over the last several years.

oshkosh is amazing. the shows are free, there's always hot 18 year old girls there who will blow you, the bands always get a minumum of $400 to play gigs (more on monday-wednesday), you will easily sell out of all your merch there, they put you up in a hotel, they'll get you extra rooms if you pick up some girls, and the pizza.... oh the pizza...

todd, i am considering a position at a funeral home there, that's why i'm asking.

well, you'd be in a good town if you want a nice house for cheap, an hour from milwaukee for good shows or an hour to green bay for good shows.
Posted: Apr 24, 2007 8:11 pm
 
Arman - if you're OK with being in a small town with little going on (but low crime, cheap housing and pleasant traffic), go for it. You would be close enough to Milwaukee to head down occasionally and a little closer to GB for the occasional show. It really is pretty damn boring, though!

Dusty, your old bandmate (current?) Christreater played at the Reptile House this winter and seemed to have a good time. Fun crowd, no pizza/18 yr old bjs/$400.

funny thing, that was mentioned in the benefit package.

first time i recorded in a studio was in oshkosh. also the second, third and fourth time. fun times. there was a music store downstairs and a decent diner across the street.

fuick oshkosh, it sure as hell aint no manitowoc.
Posted: Apr 24, 2007 9:28 pm
 
It's basically Manitowoc but less run down & with a buncha college douches milling aboot.

The only time I went to Osh Kosh, I got really drunk in some college bar and stared at a lot of hot girls. I think a lot of them were hippies. Between this memory and the cute girl with dreadlocks I saw last night, I think I want to date a hippie.

I know Richard started a big barroom brawl in an Oshkosh "college bar" one night when Death & Taxes played. I'm sure someone said they didn't like Thin Lizzy or something like that. Yeah, Neenah and Oshkosh seem to have a higher hot girl percentage than the rest of the Valley or GB. Go Arman! Hot Corpse.

neenah, menasha

algoma, monona
girl I'm gonna bone ya
oshkosh, winnebago, baby why don't we go

I apologize if Da Yoopers already beat me to either of those.

It ain't oshksosh...but are the Kopps hamburger joints still around in Milwaukee? I used to drive up there to skate the Turf and Kopps was always a stop....fuckin' huge burgers.....

arman, I have know no idea what the job market is like for funeral home directors, but if Oshkosh is one of a few cities you're choosing from, it's not so bad. You're within an hour of the three major cities in Wisconsin and you might get bored easily, but the town isn't lacking in cheap drinking, not to mention the cheap living (but anywhere is probably cheaper than Chicago).
Posted: Apr 25, 2007 4:16 pm
 
Yeah, there are still Kopps on each side of town. Ate there a few days ago.
Posted: Apr 25, 2007 4:28 pm
 
How was it?
Posted: Apr 25, 2007 4:33 pm
 
Kopps is awesome.
Posted: Apr 25, 2007 5:02 pm
 
I might go to Kopps for lunch today... Haven't had it in a while. I'll schedule the quadruple bypass now...
Posted: Apr 25, 2007 5:22 pm
 
Kopps is awesome, even though they don't have bacon.
Posted: Apr 25, 2007 7:20 pm
 
Oshkosh ain't that bad if yer into drinking. I used to live there when I was a teenager. There is a cool band there called Razorfist.
Posted: Apr 25, 2007 9:00 pm
 
Ha, forgot about Razorfist. Doesn't the Jaguar live there right now, too?
