This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Nov. 6, Bob Dylan @ The Riverside Theater, 7:30 p.m. (sold out) Perhaps it’s quality control that accounts for Bob Dylan’s late-career critical resurgence. Since his 1997 comeback Time Out of Mind, Dylan has only released two studio albums, 2001’s Love and Theft and 2006’s Modern Times, both of which were sly...

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...

Tonight @ the UWM Gasthaus - 8 p.m.

Despite what their moniker promises, The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir, which plays an 8 p.m. show tonight at the UWM Gasthaus, 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 and the requisite allegiance to Belle & Sebastian...

Heralded by critics for its tense scene setting, the film screens tonight at 7 p.m. at the UWM Union Theater. It’s one . . .

Tonight @ the UWM Union Theatre - 7 p.m.

Perhaps the most poignant of all documentaries screening at this year’s LGBT Film/Video Festival, Jerusalem Is Proud to Present, which plays tonight at 7 p.m. at the UWM Union Theatre, follows a crew of idealistic LGBT organizers as they attempt to throw a World Pride event in Jerusalem—an undertaking that . . .
