Thursday, Oct. 22 Lucero w/ Amy LaVere, and Cedric Burnside and Lightnin’ Malcolm @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 8 p.m. It’s almost a shame to lump in Lucero with all those other alt-country

Milwaukee says goodbye to one of its breeziest bands next month, when Sleep Tight Co. play one last show at the Cactus Club on Oct. 24, a fitting autumn farewell for a band that always played lovelorn summertime pop. In a city where pop bands tend to be kitschy and esoteric, Sleep Tight Co. stood out by playing their pop straight, sans toy instruments and borrowed girl-group harmonies. They often ...
