The Wigs are remembered by music fans of a certain age, but a younger generation in love with their genre will want to cock an ear. Popular in Milwaukee during the early '80s, The Wigs were with the first wave of local power-pop bands, breaking ground for later groups such as The Blow Pops, Trolley and The Lackloves. The Wigs' 1981 LP File Under: Pop Vocal, with its propulsive beat and jangly bittersweet songs, has been remixed and reissued on CD. They are returning to Milwaukee for a single show tonight at Shank Hall tonight at 8 p.m.


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?
