(Arcadia), by Larry Widen and Frank D. Alioto

Milwaukee’s colorful past, more interesting than the history of many heartland cities, is being examined in a series of profusely illustrated books from Arcadia Publishing. Larry Widen, whose previous book examined Milwaukee cinemas, contributes a look at the city’s flourishing cultural milieu through the mid-20th century. During those years Houdini headlined in Milwaukee at the Majestic Theatre, museums sprouted along Wisconsin Avenue and Downtown was crowded with theaters, concert halls and exhibition buildings, many of them architecturally fabulous. Frank Alioto remembers Brady Street’s early ethnic history, its role as a thriving business district and, in the 1960s, mecca for the local counterculture. The pictures in both books are fascinating photo albums of Milwaukee’s past.

A picture can speak a thousand words, so in his new book Milwaukee-born photographer Pat Graham lets the images do the talking. Silent Pictures, a compilation of about 20 years’ worth of photographs of bands like Bikini Kill, Fugazi, Modest Mouse and the Shins, is a high-octane journey through the underground indie-rock scene of the ’90s. And it’s anything but quiet. The images are charged with tightly compacted energy and an almost hallucinogenic frenzy.
