May 9, 2009

Mogwai has been polishing their rock instrumentals since 1995, but the Glaswegians seem to have gained some new fans from 2006's intrepidly tidy Mr. Beast and their most recent collection, The Hawk Is Howling, as their intense post-rock instrumentals...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, May 7, D. Rider @ The Cactus Club, 9 p.m. Those who found U.S. Maple’s subverting of already subversive Jesus Lizard-styled noise-rock a touch too unnerving will take little solace in Todd Rittmann’s new project, D. Rider. Picking up where U.S. Maple left off on 2003’s ode-to-male-orgasm Purple on Time...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, April 30, Guster @ Marquette University, 7:30 p.m. Following the jam-band business model even though they don’t much care for jamming, Guster has gradually built their following by encouraging tape trading and touring colleges like the one that spawned them 18 years ago, Tufts University. They've become...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, April 23, Indigo Girls @ The Pabst Theater, 8 p.m. Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have come a long way since their 1987 debut Strange Fire yielded the hit “Closer to Fine.” The Indigo Girls have remained one of the most popular folk-rock duos over the last two decades, releasing 11 studio albums, including...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, April 9, Brandi Carlile @ The Pabst Theater, 8 p.m. Like so many of her adult-contemporary peers who owe much of their name recognition to appearances on the “Grey’s Anatomy” soundtrack, Brandi Carlile plays melancholic but melodious folk-pop. She distinguishes herself, though, with an unusually...

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...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, April 2, The Gaslight Anthem @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 8 p.m. While New Jersey natives The Gaslight Anthem continually invoke mentions of Bruce Springsteen from critics, in truth those comparisons have more to do with both acts’ shared Garden State origins and fondness for times past than anything...

"Oh, if only there were clothes on the floor," Gareth Campesinos! says midway through his band's hit (well, Internet hit), "You! Me! Dancing!" Ignore the cloyingly cute title; like the rest of Los Campesinos!' debut album, Hold On Now, Youngster…, the song isn't actually about dancing but rather the pursuit of sex that always seems just out of reach. Not since the Violent Femmes' 1982 debut has an album so...
