This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Dec. 18, Hardcore Comedy Show @ Cactus Club, 10 p.m. One of the loudest rallying cries from Milwaukee’s scattered comedy scene, The Hardcore Comedy Show pairs five burgeoning female comedians—grrrl comedians? in one of the city’s least likely comedy venues: the Cactus Club...

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...

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...

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...

Nov. 4, 2008

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...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Oct. 30, Cornmeal w/ Good Gets Better @ Miramar Theatre, 8 p.m. The Chicago ensemble Cornmeal labels itself “progressive bluegrass,” but that tag may give a misleading impression. While the group isn’t immune to occasional jammy digressions into jazz and rock territory, they stay more closely within...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Oct. 23, Local H w/ The Cocksmiths @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 8 p.m. Mostly unchanged since their minor hit “Bound for the Floor” in the ’90s, Local H’s music still crashes and thrashes in deference to the glory days of grunge-rock but a steady stream of respectable new material and a road-tested two-...

With their high-gloss arena-rock, flashy live shows and tender, soundtrack-ready songs, Northern Room had appropriately been flagged as one of Milwaukee's most commercially promising bands, but the group announced yesterday that they will be breaking up following their headlining show Nov 8. at the Turner Hall Ballroom. They e-mailed the news, which has since been posted on the Turner Hall Web sit...

Tonight @ the Turner Hall Ballroom - 8 p.m.

Though Southern Culture on the Skids, who play an 8 p.m. show at Turner Hall Ballroom tonight, sing of mobile homes, box-sized motels, fried chicken and other phenomena mostly associated with the south of the Mason-Dixen, the band would fit right in with Milwaukee’s punk- and rockabilly-loving music scene. Southern Culture’s latest album, Countrypolitan Favorites, collects 15 rowdy covers of songs best associated...
