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...

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...

Sept. 22, 2008

   A pair of guitarists and sometime percussionists who combine heavy sampling and live instruments to create a hybrid form that is solely instrumental, Ratatat's Evan Mast and Mike Stroud make music that is infectiously danceable, and most...

The Pabst Theater organization began booking shows at the deserted Turner Hall Ballroom about a year ago with the explicit promise that the venue would be used to book more local shows. Although all-local shows at the Turner Ballroom have actually been few and far between�nowhere near the full schedule of local bookings we see at venues like Linneman�s, the Cactus Club, Shank Hall, the Stonefly Br...

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

It’s still just a rumor at this point, but it’s one of the most tantalizing of the year: Ratatat, the ever-hyped indie-electronic duo, may sign to The Neptunes’ Star Trak record label, where they’ll presumably be groomed for a career as hip-hop and R&B producers. In a time when Kanye West is mining emotive, Daft Punk synths for inspiration, Ratatat’s trippy, cerebral beats actually would fit right in on commercial radio if paired...

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

A local favorite, thanks to his soft, coffeehouse-ready folk, on-again/off-again local singer/songwriter Peter Mulvey will be sporting stronger quads and tighter buns when he plays an 8 p.m. show at the Turner Hall Ballroom tonight. That’s because Mulvey is on another one of his bike-based “Look Ma, No Gasoline” tours.

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

The Turner Hall Ballroom tonight at 8 p.m. welcome current members of Chicago’s legendary Second City improv/comedy troupe, an institution that claims alums like Bill Murray, Chris Farley, Steve Carell, Amy Sedaris, Tina Fey and Stephen Colbert. Of course, most of the comedians in Second City only get famous years after they leave the troupe, so the current players don’t pack much in the way of star power, but Second City...

   Spiritualized frontman Jason Pierce named his band's newest record Songs in A&E, a reference to his recent stay in an "accidents and emergencies" ward in his home country of Great Britain. Based on his haggard appearance, i...
