Widespread Panic has been playing its swampy jam-rock since the mid-’80s, when there was no organized jam scene for them to lean on. The emergence of jam in the ’90s as its own genre—with its own business model—turned the once-obscure band into a lucrative touring machine, and in recent years Widespread Panic has altered its touring schedule to account for its many sold-out shows. The group used to do two-night stands at the Riverside Theater, but in recent years they’ve upped it to three nights, so they’ll be at the Riverside through Sunday.

Poll

The Milwaukee Common Council is debating a proposal that would reduce the municipal fine for possessing a small amount of marijuana from $250-$500 per violation to no more than $50 per violation. Do you support this change?
