This Week in Milwaukee

Friday, Nov. 28, Shelby Lynne @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 8 p.m. A duet with George Jones on his 1988 hit “If I Could Bottle This Up” introduced Shelby Lynne to the country establishment, but they had no idea what to do with her. For years, Lynne was shoehorned into all styles of...

Cries from rival promoters that the Pabst Theater Foundation is using its deep pockets and non-profit status to monopolize the city's live-music market have been almost entirely drowned out by the enthused cheers from Milwaukeeans who love all the big concerts that the foundation's three venues bring to the city. Feeling cornered, the Pabst Theater Foundation's detractors have often asked for a ...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Oct. 16, Minus the Bear w/ Annuals and Themes @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 7 p.m. With their twisty, tangled guitars and number-crunching chord changes, Minus the Bear sound increasingly disconnected from a greater indie-rock scene that now prefers manic, cute-overload pop or tranquilized...

Tonight @ the Pabst Theater - 8 p.m.

Not since the Arcade Fire’s perfect Funeral has a debut album by an indie-rock band been as uniformly lauded as Fleet Foxes’ self-titled debut. Fleet Foxes soak their hazy, Neil Young-ish country-pop songs in buckets of reverb, meaning on paper they’re not much different from other animal-checking indie-rock peers like Band of Horses and Grizzly Bear, but Fleet Foxes are, frankly, better than either of those bands, their harmonies richer, their songs dreamier and more mysterious. The band’s 8 p.m. Pabst Theater concert tonight...

Tonight @ the Pabst Theater - 8 p.m.

Pedal-steel guitar master Robert Randolph and his Family Band come to the Pabst Theater tonight at 8 p.m. to perform their funky, gospel-inspired brand of rock and blues. Randolph’s latest album, Colorblind, features appearances from Dave Matthews and Eric Clapton. A follow-up album is rumored for release sometime this year...

This Week in Milwaukee

Southern Culture on the Skids @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 8 p.m. Though Southern Culture on the Skids sings of mobile homes, boxsized motels, fried chicken and other phenomena mostly associated with the land south of the Mason-Dixon, the band would fit right in with Milwaukee’s punk- and rockabilly-loving music...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Sept. 18, The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir @ The UWM Gasthaus, 8 p.m. Despite what their moniker promises, The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir isn’t from Scotland; they don’t play gospel; and, for that matter, they’re not a choir. They’re a Chicago co-ed indie pop ensemble with a warm, dreamy sound...

The Pabst Theater organization began booking shows at the deserted Turner Hall Ballroom about a year ago with the explicit promise that the venue would be used to book more local shows. Although all-local shows at the Turner Ballroom have actually been few and far between�nowhere near the full schedule of local bookings we see at venues like Linneman�s, the Cactus Club, Shank Hall, the Stonefly Br...

Tonight @ the Pabst Theater - 8 p.m.

Of all the ’90s female folk artists who cited Joan Baez as a muse, Dar Williams had the closest ties to Baez herself, touring and dueting with and writing songs for the folk legend. Where many of Williams’ peers sang with a jagged edge, aggressively trumpeting their individuality, politics and sexuality with sing-along anger and profanity, Williams was never so subversive. Her songs were cleaner, poppier and more inclusive; her political...
