Theater Preview

With the exception of a staged reading last September, Peter J. Woods largely has been absent from the theater scene for the past few years. Instead, the actor/playwright has focused on the music of noise rock—beautiful, aggressive, disharmonious. But Woods hasn't abandoned theater altogether.

From catching an awesome club, theater or co-op concert to hanging out with other locals in your favorite neighborhood haunt of choice, Milwaukee's options for fun are increasingly abundant as the sun goes down.

Erin Wolf has a smart, must-read interview with the guys about their many attempts to break up and the state of pop-punk over at Fan-Belt.com. Also on tonight's bill: Possible Fathers,...
