It would be easy for Milwaukee-based hardcore band No Future to play the scenester card and have everything happen for them rather quickly. After all, the five band members—Andy Silverman, Brad Clifford, Kenny Siebert, Eric Alonso and Ryan Smith—have been in such noted acts as Since By Man, Decibully, Seven Days of Samsara, Poison the Well and Red Knife Lottery. Yet band members cringe...

Summerfest launches an alternative music festival, but is it here to stay?

By the end, RiverSplash was on life support. For two decades, the event had marked the unofficial start of Milwaukee’s festival season the first weekend of each June, but following years of bad weather and even worse press after a 2008 shooting, organizers announced in December that RiverSplash wouldn’t return this year. That cancellation freed up a prime weekend for Summerfest officials...

Today @ Center Street, 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.

The Bay View neighborhood's impressive Summerfest counter-programming continues tomorrow night when The Paper Chase headlines a 10 p.m. show at the Cactus Club. I caught the Dallas group this March at South by Southwest, where they amused with an aggressively shambolic set, but it wasn't until hearing the group's newest album, Someday This Could All Be Yours, Vol 1, that I was really won o...

Local Bands Get Their Due at Cascio Groove Garage

Although Summerfest was conceived largely as a showcase for local bands, over the decades slots for opening bands became elusive as the festival began to emphasize national headliners, explains Michael Houser, a former Summerfest board member and the current chief executive...

Taking full advantage of Twitter this morning, Milwaukee's Red Knife Lottery has teased its upcoming album, Soiled Soul & Rapture, with a strikingly gorgeous video for the song "Junkie Jazz." It shouldn't be too much of a spoiler for those familiar with the band to note that the video ends with bloodshed: Red Knife Lottery "Junkie Jazz" from Travis Huss on Vimeo....

Tonight @ the Borg Ward - 7 p.m.

The eccentric Israeli garage/prog-rock group Monotonix, which makes no effort to hide its affinity for all things Thin Lizzy, headlines an 7 p.m. show at the Borg Ward Collective with openers Call Me Lightning, Red Knife Lottery and Big Fun tonight. Largely on the strength of their wild live shows, which occasionally include...
