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...

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...

Tonight @ the Turner Hall Ballroom - 7 p.m.

The Turner Hall Ballroom tonight at 7 p.m. welcomes a pair of emerging bands who are making a name for themselves on the Internet. Headlining is Breathe Carolina, a Denver two-piece electronic band with big, power-pop hooks. In concert, the band eschews the standard, pre-recorded bump-and-grind of other electro-pop bands...

Tonight @ the Turner Hall Ballroom - 7:30 p.m.

A contemporary of Steve Earle, Rodney Crowell cut his teeth playing in Emmylou Harris’ Hot Band before literally marrying into country royalty, wedding Rosanne Cash and producing her albums until their 1992 divorce. He’s had an on-again/off-again solo career, too, most memorably recording the great 1988 album Diamonds and Dirt, a mean...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Sept. 25, Common w/ N.E.R.D. @ The Rave, 8 p.m. Kanye West cemented his star-making reputation when he produced Common’s 2005 hit Be, a soulful, down-to-Earth album that resuscitated Common’s career after 2002’s ambitious but muddled Electric Circus. Since then, life has been good...
