No word from the venue itself on this one yet, but late last night the Drive-By Truckers publicist announced that the band is postponing this week's shows, including tomorrow night's date at the Turner Hall Ballroom. The Drive-By Truckers will be rescheduling their remaining tour dates this week. Patterson Hood was forced to sit out of this past weekend's shows due to walking pneumonia an...

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...

The Pabst Theater foundation further padded its white-hot spring schedule today with two big concert announcements: Familiar faces The Decemberists are returning for a show at the Riverside (where they were set to play in 2007 before they canceled the dates because of an unspecified illness), while the best breakthrough band of 2008, Los Campesinos!, will make their Milwaukee debut at the Turner H...

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...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Feb. 5, The Championship @ The Mitchell Park Domes, 6 p.m. Though the band mostly plays smoky corner bars, mournful Americana songs about long drives and long nights deserve to be heard outdoors. Tonight’s unusual gig, however, where the group plays as part of the Mitchell Park Domes'...

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...

Sure, it was impressive when the Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavillion cracked the Billboard Top 20 earlier this week, but perhaps a more telling indicator of the band's rising stock is their schedule May 19 concert in Milwaukee: It's been moved from the Turner Hall Ballroom, where it quickly sold out, to the much larger Riverside Theater. That Animal Collective would have been p...
