The Rock County Folk Symposium is celebrating its fifth anniversary in August, but you can be forgiven if you’ve never heard of it before. Until now the Janesville-area music festival has been a fairly small affair, hosted on a private farm that could accommodate about 100 or 150 people.

Tonight @ the Times Cinema - 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.

The Milwaukee Underground Film Festival continues its four-day, multi-venue run tonight with a program that runs at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. at the Times Cinema. Whatever screens, it’s a safe bet that it will be a little weird, a little confounding and, perhaps, a little controversial.
