Cream City Music Festival
Today @ Catalano Square, 3 p.m.
Once again, Milwaukee enjoys the spillover from a major Chicago music festival. Atlanta psychedelic rockers Gringo Star and Montreal classic-rock revivalists The Sam Roberts Band, both already in the region this weekend for Lollapalooza, will headline the inaugural Cream City Music Festival, a free concert at Catalano Square, a pleasant but underused bit of green space near the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design campus. Two Milwaukee bands complement the headliners nicely: Americana revivalists The Championship and rockers Invade Rome.
