Pablove Benefit Concert
Since losing his son Pablo to a Wilms’ tumor, Milwaukee native Jeff Castelaz has used his Pablove Foundation to increase awareness about childhood cancer and raise money for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, where Pablo underwent treatment. A one-time staple of the Milwaukee music scene who managed the city’s most successful acts from the ’90s, including The Gufs, Citizen King and The Promise Ring, Castelaz assembles a litany of big names from the Milwaukee music scene (both past and present) for his annual Pablove benefit shows at Turner Hall Ballroom. Past years have seen reunions from bands like Pet Engine and Northern Room; this year’s bill will include a trio of reunited punk acts: Alligator Gun, The Benjamins and Subside. Those blasts from the past will be joined by two current local mainstays: Vic & Gab and Field Report’s Chris Porterfield.
