Today @ Locust Street - 2 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Though conceived, like so many other concerts and festivals around the city this week, to tap the army of visiting Harley riders, Locust Street’s Sunday Survivor Fest is perhaps the weekend biker event with the most appeal to non-bikers, since its entertainment line-up is most like that of a typical Milwaukee street festival . . .

Mark Waldoch had saved up the necessary money, prepared himself emotionally to leave behind Milwaukee, his home of 15 years, and was ready to start a new life in New York. What he hadn't planned on, though, was developing a kidney stone the size of a golf ball shortly after his arrival. "I was in and out of the hospital for two months, put under anesthesia and all that," Waldoch shudders. "It was rough.

The world's greatest music festival has officially kicked off, and day one of four is now over at 2:30 in morning (at least for me - Evan is still out wondering the streets). In addition to being able to witness countless amazing performances from lots of great bands, I also have the discreet pleasure of being able to perform myself, which is why I need to go to sleep now . . . but, before I do, ...

Thursday, March 13th @ Red 7 – 1:45 PM (Outdoor Day Show)

Formed in Milwaukee, WI, in 1997, Freshwater Collins continues to slay audiences nationwide with their unique take on psychedelic rock and roll.
