Also on the bill: The . . .

Tonight @ the Rave - 6:30 p.m.

Emo-punks Saves the Day won over MTV with their hits “Freakish” and “At The Funderal,” but on their latest touring, they’re reminding fans that they haven’t gone pop and abandoned their roots. They’ve invited five likeminded bands—Armor For Sleep, Set Your Goals, Metro Station and Lydia—on the road for an event . . .

Tonight @ the Rave - 8:00 p.m.

Rapper/crooner T-Pain warned the audience that his performance at The Rave would be more than just a concert: It was going to be a full-out party, he said, as he shook his head-full of blond-dipped black dreads, which were heaped into a rear ponytail. T-Pain has mastered the art of creative live oration, marrying many songs to voluptuous choruses accompanied by acoustic guitar. Last Wednesday, when he delivered his 2005 debut single, “I’m Sprung,” about the euphoric feeling of falling in love . . .

Tonight @ the Rave - 8:00 p.m.

Tonight @ the Rave - 8:00 p.m.

It is hard to believe that the godfathers of electronic music have been creating their signature brand of electro-pop since the early ’70s. After nearly 40 years, countless imitators and an immeasurable amount of influence on the modern musical landscape, Kraftwerk is still finding new fans in the electronic music scene . . .

Tonight @ the Rave - 7:30 p.m.

The hard-touring, screamy post-hardcore septet Chiodos stops in Milwaukee tonight for a 7:30 p.m. show at the Rave with established openers MxPx, whose after all these years still prefer a comparatively softer, more agreeable pop-punk sound to the more aggressive screamo that’s in vogue these days. After a short . . .

This Week in Milwaukee

Blending a mix of narrative lyrics, lush instrumentation and synth-pop flourishes, the Toronto-based indie-pop collective Stars has distinguished itself from fellow bands treading this well-worn terrain. Led by vocalists Torquil Campbell and Amy Millan, both sometimes members of Broken Social Scene...

Tonight @ the Rave - 7:00 PM

Howard Zinn-reading, capitalism-hating (but democracy-advocating) punks Anti-Flag are one of the most political acts in the history of the genre, and therefore one of the most divisive. Some punks love their vehemence, others tire of it. Their just-released newest album, The Bright Lights of America—their . . .

Tonight @ the Rave - 8:00 PM

Robo-voiced rapper/crooner T-Pain guested on so many singles last year that he gave Timbaland a run for his money. If you didn’t hear T-Pain on his 2007 hit “Buy U a Drank,” then you almost certainly heard him on R. Kelly’s “I’m a Flirt,” Chris Brown’s “Kiss Kiss” or Kanye West’s “Good Life.” T-Pain started 2008 equally . . .
