Tonight @ Shank Hall - 8 p.m.
Although Paul Cebar is synonymous with Milwaukee (for years his band was even named “The Milwaukeeans”), much of his appeal is that his music sounds nothing like anything us from our cold, snow-covered Midwestern city. Cebar instead taps the southest of the south—steamy, New Orleans-inspired R&B and shades of tropical world music—which should make his 8 p.m. show at Shank Hall tonight a welcome respite from the cold, snowy landscape outside. He plays tonight with the Tomorrow Sound, a reconfigured version of his Milwaukeeans.
