Friday's Los Campesinos! concert was every bit as euphoric as the band's albums would have you believe, but the venue didn't do the show any favors by filling the dancefloor with... cocktail tables. Lots and lots of cocktail tables, cumbersomely placed so that much of the crowd stood toward the back of the hall while mostly empty tables ate up the good spots. Sadly for the passive observers, t...

Not since the Violent Femmes' 1982 debut has an album so...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, March 26, Brian Regan @ The Riverside Theater, 7:30 p.m. For a comedian, a Patton Oswalt endorsement is like having Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski tell you he likes the way you play basketball— it means you’re pretty good at what you do.

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, March 5, The Seventh Seal @ The Weasler Auditorium, 8:30 p.m. The two book-ending images in Ingmar Bergman’s 1957 existential masterpiece The Seventh Seal, Death playing a game of chess and Death’s victims dancing, are two of the most parodied in film, satirized by everyone from Woody Allen to...
