Sometimes in the city known for beer, wine aficionados may feel a little left out. But when you look at Milwaukee’s nightlife, you will see plenty of places to enjoy a glass (or bottle) of vino. Some have been around for a while...
"Honestly, I'm not a big drinker," says the British-born director who is lighting up the Rep, "especially now with a 17-month-old girl at home, but I'm partial every now and then to a finely crafted cocktail.” Where better to go than this wonderfully camp retro bar? “It serves up the best-made...

 It’s ironic that AWOLNATION plays Summerfest on July 2, the same night that Styx will be headlining the BMO Harris Pavilion at the other end of the festival grounds, given how much debt the Los Angeles electronic-rock band owes those prog pioneers. AWOLNATION paid overt homage to Styx’s anthem “Come Sail” away on their breakthrough hit “Sail,” and proudly share that band’s more...

Tuesday, July 2 @ BMO Harris Pavilion, 8 p.m.

Sunday, June 29 @ Marcus Amphitheater, 7 p.m.

 The South has been the dominate creative force in rap music for so long now that it’s easy to forget that when Outkast first emerged in the ’90s the region had been dismissed—and even shunned—by the greater hip-hop community. On albums like 1998’s rich, funk-drenched Aquemini and 2000’s...

 Last year Tegan and Sara released a pop album. That shouldn’t be a shocker: The Canadian sister-sister duo has been releasing pop albums—great ones—for more than a decade now. But 2013’s Heartthrob was a pop album in the truest, most commercial sense, an album that was slicker than...

Tuesday, July 1 @ Harley-Davidson Roadhouse, 10 p.m.

Almost everything went wrong for the 2013-’14 Milwaukee Bucks. Injuries forced coach Larry Drew to juggle lineups constantly.

Cyclists’ rights, responsibilities and safety

Retro-chic meets clean technology in Downtown Kenosha’s electric streetcars

You can climb aboard a shiny orange, maroon, green, red or yellow streetcar in Downtown Kenosha and, for just a dollar, take a trip back in time. But don’t be fooled: the city’s modest fleet of 63-year-old streetcars is more than a nostalgia novelty. They barely attract enough rail fans and...

The inner world of a great 20th-century modern artist

 “Kandinsky: A Retrospective,” a joint project of the Milwaukee Art Museum and Centre Pompidou in Paris, opens in Milwaukee on June 5. The exhibition features works by Wassily Kandinsky (1886-1944) and related artists from Munich’s Blaue Reiter group, the early 20th-century circle of modernist painters that...

Live music, food and hands-on creativity at Kohler Arts

 Sheboygan’s enduring claim to artistic fame is giving us The Chordettes—the mellifluous female vocal quartet of “Mr. Sandman” fame, which conquered the charts in 1954. These days, the John Michael Kohler Arts Center’s Midsummer Festival of the Arts keeps the city on the map, artistically speaking. The festival...
 Cyclops are nasty creatures. If Homer’s Odyssey is to be believed, the one-eyed monsters consume mostly sheep’s milk, but prefer to munch on humans. When caught, it takes the cunning of Odysseus—not to mention a red-hot sharpened stick to the eye—to escape their clutches. “Performing for Cyclops,” a group...

 The Fourth of July means flag-waving, burger-grilling, firework-watching, beer-drinking and picnic-having. It also means that a group of eccentric patriots will race down the Sheboygan River in extravagantly customized crafts letting their proverbial freak flag fly in addition to Old Glory. Yes, the John Michael Kohler...

Remembering Roger Ebert

They were the oddest couple on television, Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert, and at the end of the night, they were never buddies. The show that eventually aired as “Sikel and Ebert” pitted the skinny, cosmopolitan Siskel against the rotund, working-class Ebert in animated discussions over...

Three Cities, Three Stories

This time, Michael Bay delivers a boring spectacle

 Director Michael Bay, known for blockbusters, regularly churns out Transformer films that net enormous worldwide sales. This time, the film’s awkward script and inferior dialog burden the sharply detailed CGI effects that sometimes transfix...

The power, money and politics of the Koch Brothers

 It’s naïve to believe in a golden age when money didn’t matter in politics, but in the last few years, the cost of democracy has skyrocketed, the restrictions on campaign spending have been annulled and the big corporations have removed their gloves. In the Citizens United decision...

Clint Eastwood and The Four Seasons

 A Broadway musical based on a string of hits by a singing group popular with Baby Boomers is a bankable idea. But who would have wagered that a production driven by the hits of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons would win four Tonys and launch one of this century’s longest theatrical...

Fear and Loathing with Hunter S. Thompson

Ralph Steadman and Hunter S. Thompson went on the road together in the 1970s as a real-life odd couple, the fastidious British pen and ink artist as sidekick to the berserker Yank behind Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. In a revealing moment from For No Good Reason, Steadman...

 The setup is ’80s horror: the bold house whose newly arrived family experiences strange goings on—the teens see it, not their myopic parents. Dark images flit at the edge of sight; jolting moments of fright; a curse clings to the place like mold… What’s interesting about Haunt is the striking...
 Nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 2014 Oscars, Ernest & Celestine is drawn in spare lines, pale colors and luminous shadows. It’s a children’s story about the enmity between mice and bears, and how one daring child mouse steps across the barrier. The message is clear...
 Judi Dench is magnificent as a scowling secondary school teacher, cynical about her delinquent students and dim colleagues, and envious of the magnetic new art teacher (Cate Blanchett). They become friends, but friendship turns to intrusive jealousy as the older woman blackmails the...
Nicolas Cage was among his generation’s most promising actors, but he’s spent most of his career playing dumb. Joe, his best film in a decade, is a Southern story of redneck violence, rural poverty and warped family ties. Cage plays the title role, a hard-working ex-con who falls in with a...
 In this hilarious 2013 comedy, Steve Coogan plays a DJ in love with the sound of his own voice, a talk-show host juggling the banalities of contemporary life. Alan Partridge is a tale of white-collar anxiety as a profits-only corporation buys the radio station, spewing jargon about...

 The 1960s were the last time westerns dominated TV programming. “Cimarron Strip” (1967-1968) was one of the better examples of the genre from that period. It stared iron-faced Stuart Whitman as a U.S. Marshal in a frontier town, holding the line against psychotics and hardened...
 Geoffrey Rush plays Virgil, a man whose sad, creased face hides many secrets.
