Several readers and a couple of acquaintances e-mailed me for my take on a letter to the editor I posted this week from "Concerned Concert-goers," a group frustrated by how recent shows at the Pabst Theater (Neko Case) and Turner Hall Ballroom (Animal Collective) have been rescheduled at the Riverside Theater. My take: I thought the readers brought up a valid point�valid enough to post, at leas...

A group of four "concerned concert-goers" has drafted up a letter to the Pabst Theater that they also sent over the Shepherd: Dear Pabst Theater, We are writing to formally lodge a complaint. Why do you keep changing venues for your shows? Actually, we know why, it is so you can make more money, at the expense of the concert-goer. We understand that moving the venue allows...

An hour after his scheduled start time, Scott Weiland took the stage not to a taut rock riff or a triumphant Stone Temple Pilots hit but… a 20-minute blues jam. With reggae undertones. On which he played Theremin. With his bac...

Friday dealt another blow to Milwaukee's beleaguered jazz fans: The Pabst Theater announced that, following the resignation of the program's title sponsor, it is canceling its long-running Hal Leonard Jazz Series. "While we will no longer promote the music in a series format, jazz enthusiasts can rest assured that the music will not disappear from our venues," the Pabst Theater Foundation's ex...

Tonight @ the Pabst Theater - 10:30 p.m.

You wouldn't necessarily know it from his failed sitcoms or his infuriating Sierra Mist commercials, but Jim Gaffigan, who performs tonight at 10:30 p.m. at the Pabst Theater, is actually very funny. In recent years, audiences have taken notice, drawn in by a frequently replayed Comedy Central stand-up special in which the comedian assails Hot Pockets. Food humor often conjures thoughts of Weird Al Yankovic or Kenny Bania, the insipid "Seinfeld" comedian...

As far as musician bloggers go, David Byrne is one of the best, writing with both grace and insight about art, architecture and culture. It's kind of embarrassing, then, that I just now discovered the blog entry Byrne wrote about his visit to Milwaukee this fall for his stunning show at the Pabst Theater (hat tip to Ryan Matteson for linking me to it). It's a must-read look at the city that, while...

Friday, Nov. 28, Shelby Lynne @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 8 p.m. A duet with George Jones on his 1988 hit “If I Could Bottle This Up” introduced Shelby Lynne to the country establishment, but they had no idea what to do with her. For years, Lynne was shoehorned into all styles of...
