"Oh, if only there were clothes on the floor," Gareth Campesinos! says midway through his band's hit (well, Internet hit), "You! Me! Dancing!"

Brian Regan’s observational comedy lives up to the praise Oswalt...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Feb. 26, The Milwaukee Music Awards @ Mad Planet, 8 p.m. Since re-launching as RadioMilwaukee two years ago, WYMS 88.9 has made a concerted effort to advance Milwaukee music— not by opening its doors to all local artists, but by showcasing the work of a chosen few, granting them the constant exposure...

Tonight @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 8 p.m.

Perhaps the most popular modern accordionist outside of Weird Al Yankovich, Stanley Dural Jr., better known as Buckwheat Zydeco, returns to Milwaukee to give the city an early taste of Mardi Gras. The Louisianan Creole blues master first cut his teeth with a conventional southern funk band, Buckwheat and The Hitchhikers, before he left to backup the legendary zydeco pioneer, Clifton Chenier. Dural eventually eclipsed his mentor...
