With lead singer Michael Tarbox wavering between Jim Morrison at his most delirious and Johnny Cash at his most matter of fact, the Cambridge, Mass., group Tarbox Ramblers farm the same haunting and underutilized Appalachian folk influence as the likes of 16 Horsepower. Their 2004 disc A Fix Back East parlays a similarly unsettling, yet entertaining snake-handler spirituality, complete with frantic violin strumming and grainy, sparse blues guitar. The group does an 8 p.m. show at Shank Hall tonight.



A Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission panel upheld the firing of former Milwaukee Police officer Christopher Manney for violating department rules last April when he encountered Dontre Hamilton before fatally shooting him. Do you agree with the commission’s decision?
