Tonight @ the Cactus Club - 10 p.m.

One of Milwaukee�s finest bands has been all too silent lately, but this month Red Knife Lottery returned with a 7-inch single, �Hip Bruisers,� and promises of a new album. The 7-inch�s title track, now streaming on the band�s Myspace page, is nothing short of stunning. The early Pretty Girls Make Graves influence is still there, but the band has honed the soulful screamo of their debut and...
