Tonight @ Potawatomi Bingo Casino, 8 p.m.

That guy who makes all the funny noises from the “Police Academy” movies? He has a name, and it’s Michael Winslow. Cashing in on a wave of ’80s nostalgia, Winslow has been hitting the comedy-club circuit hard lately, imitating squishy wet shoe noises and the sound of a cork popping for audiences all over the country. Incisive social commentary it’s not, but the shtick is more versatile than, say, that of the one “Police Academy” cadet who always...

Thursday, Feb. 12, Buckwheat Zydeco @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 8 p.m. Perhaps the most popular modern accordionist outside of Weird Al Yankovic, Stanley Dural Jr., better known as Buckwheat Zydeco, returns to Milwaukee to give the city an early taste of Mardi Gras. The Louisianan Creole blues master first cut his...

This Week in Milwaukee

Friday, Jan. 9, Revolush w/ Chief @ Shank Hall, 10 p.m. Few Milwaukee bands are more proudly stuck in the past than Revolush, a group transfixed by the sounds of the late ’70s, a time when wiry young bands like XTC pushed rock in quirky directions that would lay the groundwork for the next wave of underground...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Oct. 16, Minus the Bear w/ Annuals and Themes @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 7 p.m. With their twisty, tangled guitars and number-crunching chord changes, Minus the Bear sound increasingly disconnected from a greater indie-rock scene that now prefers manic, cute-overload pop or tranquilized...

Tonight @ the Potawatomi Bingo Casino - 8 p.m.

Supported by fellow rock singer John Waite, Dave Mason comes to the Potawatomi Casino tonight at 8 p.m. After co-founding late-’60s psychedelic rockers Traffic, Mason moved on to a solo career that found him exploring some of the most laid-back sounds of the ’70s. Save for a short-lived stint with Fleetwood Mac in the mid-’90s, he’s remained an active solo artist and tours surprisingly often.

Tonight @ the Potawatomi Bingo Casino - 8 p.m.

No longer a child prodigy (he’s just a plain old prodigy now), Jonny Lang continues to be one of the most popular contemporary blues guitarists. His most recent album, Turn Around, won a 2007 Grammy Award for Best Rock or Rap Gospel Album—a curious category for him, perhaps, but an honor nonetheless. In conjunction...

Wild Earth’s varied delight

The expansion of the Potawatomi Bingo Casino may be ongoing, but another new restaurant, Wild Earth, opened during the first week of August. The new venue, located on the upper level—away from the noise of the casino—offers an American menu with a few American-Indian accents. In some respects this is a less-pricy version of Dream Dance, the casino’s flagship restaurant.

Tonight @ the Potawatomi Bingo Casino - 11 p.m.

Lewis Black does double duty today, following up his Harley-Davidson appearance with a separate, 11 p.m. show at the Potawatomi Bingo Casino. The “Daily Show” contributor has recently found modest success with his own Comedy Central show, “Lewis Black’s Root of All Evil,” a (very) high-concept court program that . . .

This Week in Milwaukee

Lewis Black @ Potawatomi Bingo Casino, 11 p.m. Though he’s likely blown any chance he had at film stardom after a string of appear ances in awful movies like Robin Williams’ Man of the Year and the 2006 kid film Unaccompanied Minors, angry comedian Lewis Black has had better luck cashing in his "Daily Show"...
