Paramore, Gin Blossoms, Candlebox, Matisyahu

Separating themselves from legions of other Warped Tour/Alternative Press-approved pop-punkers, Paramore is fronted by spunky starlet Hayley Williams, a 19-year-old who is, refreshingly, like a real 19-year-old. The group’s charmingly overproduced 2007 album, Riot! is an emo-rific depiction...

Today at Cascio Groove Garage

As usual, some of the best bands playing Summerfest today hail from right here in Milwaukee. Among the draws playing the all-local Cascio Groove Garage stage today is alternative-rockers Testa Rosa, country-rockers Juniper Tar and, at 8:30 p.m., The Celebrated Workingman, who throw down happy, hooky indie-rock.

Tonight @ the Marcus Amphitheater

Their regular-dude image may suggest otherwise, but Rascal Flatts really isn’t a country band anymore. Save for that rural drawl in their vocals, and the odd steel-guitar accent here and there, the group’s recent albums reside almost exclusively in the terrain of adult-contemporary pop...

No matter how "evolved" a person gets, it seems like the one thing that can manage to bring a person down is getting sucked back into a bad family dynamic.

It scares ...

Tonight @ the Marcus Amphitheater

Born in Milwaukee, educated in Madison and famous the world over, Steve Miller nonetheless seems an unlikely candidate to headline the Marcus Amphitheater. After all, his last single to top the charts (“Abracadabra”) came more than a quarter-century ago, and he hasn’t released a studio album since 1993’s Wide River.

Tonight @ Marcus Amphitheater

Like that other small-town romanticizing heartland-rocker, Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp balances pop prowess with bighearted, populist ambitions. Even his grand-old, flag-waving Chevrolet-selling love letter to the working class, “Our Country,” was anchored by a progressive...

Today @ Cascio Groove Garage Stage

Milwaukee’s own Year of the Gun, which headlines the all-local Cascio Groove Garage stage tonight at 9 p.m., embraces all that is rock. With a penchant for songs glamorizing booze, sex and other good old, all-American pastimes, the band is driven by guitar above all else...
