My Morning Jacket has evolved rapidly since the psychedelic Southern rock of their early albums, pushing themselves in more grandiose, experimental directions for 2005’s tight, masterful Z and 2008’s all-over-the-place Evil Urges, an album that divided critics but certainly didn’t slow their rise. In concert, the band is more of a traditional, Southern-flavored jam guitar band than their studio-crafted albums let on, playing sets that often run longer than the average football game for a crowd heavy on tape-traders and Relix subscribers. My Morning Jacket’s overtime sets don’t allow anytime for opening acts, but two strong would-be openers, Dead Confederate and Catfish Haven, will play a free show across the street at Mo’s Irish Pub after the band’s 8 p.m. concert at the Riverside Theater ends 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?
