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.

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Dec. 11, Shawn Colvin w/ Garrison Starr @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 8 p.m. After long and mostly under-the-radar beginnings, Colvin scored a Top 10 hit in 1997 with her revenge tale “Sunny Came Home,” a song that dovetailed with the era’s newfound interest in female empowerment and Lilith Fair-friendly...

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...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Nov. 20, Fastball @ Shank Hall, 8 p.m. Thanks to “The Way,” a ubiquitous single that nicely dovetailed with adultcontemporary radio’s renewed interest in Heartland-tinted rock, Fastball was among radio’s breakthrough stars of 1998. Though a couple of likable follow-up singles...

The young crowd at Tuesday's Turner Hall Ballroom Girl Talk appearance was beyond energetic, undoubtedly siphoning energy from the momentous election. As the venue projected the poll returns opposite the stage, scalped tickets sold for $50-$60 outsid...

In what's usually a sign of very, very poor ticket sales, the Turner Hall Ballroom announced today that Wednesday night's Gang Gang Dance/Marnie Stern concert is now free. Though the co-headliners each had breakthrough years, earning cheers from most of the important Internet music sites, including Pitchfork, neither yet has the name recognition (or in Marnie Stern's case, the mass appeal) to fill...
