This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, July 23, GZA/Genius @ Apartment 720, 9 p.m. Debates over the best solo Wu-Tang Clan albums inevitably boil down to two 1995 releases, Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… and GZA’s Liquid Swords. The latter is the more cinematic and foreboding of the two, a fitting showcase...

As some awaken from having enjoyed the many retro flavors of Christmas In July with the Brew City Bombshells at Stonefly last night, others are preparing for a similarly exotic evening’s entertainment just a couple of weeks away. Two weeks from lastnight (August 1st) at the Stonefly Brewery: fire, magic, burlesque and that sort of thing as Dead Man’s Carnival will be doing a performance. ...

From catching an awesome club, theater or co-op concert to hanging out with other locals in your favorite neighborhood haunt of choice, Milwaukee's options for fun are increasingly abundant as the sun goes down. While no neighborhood is completely genre-specific, the residents of each do take pride in their own unique flavor. Milwaukee has always been known for impressive bar-per-capita numbers. This is perhaps most evident in the student- and campus oriented East Side, with the Jazz Estate and Vox being the quieter and relaxed alternative to the louder and rowdier BBC and Cans...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, May 14, Keyshia Cole w/ The-Dream, Keri Hilson and Bobby Valentino @ The Milwaukee Theatre, 8 p.m. This remarkable concert brings more major contemporary R&B singers to Milwaukee than the city usually hosts in an entire season. At the top of the bill is Keyshia Cole, who offsets her urbane...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, May 7, D. Rider @ The Cactus Club, 9 p.m. Those who found U.S. Maple’s subverting of already subversive Jesus Lizard-styled noise-rock a touch too unnerving will take little solace in Todd Rittmann’s new project, D. Rider. Picking up where U.S. Maple left off on 2003’s ode-to-male-orgasm Purple on Time...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, April 23, Indigo Girls @ The Pabst Theater, 8 p.m. Amy Ray and Emily Saliers have come a long way since their 1987 debut Strange Fire yielded the hit “Closer to Fine.” The Indigo Girls have remained one of the most popular folk-rock duos over the last two decades, releasing 11 studio albums, including...

Tonight @ Stonefly Brewery, 10 p.m.

Songwriter to the stars and former 4 Non Blondes brunette Linda Perry has penned monster hits for Pink, Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera, and though she’s branched out to mentor artists like Ben Jelen and James Blunt, her latest project is a little outside her comfort zone: Bigelf, a Los Angeles prog-rock quartet that slathers crushing, Black Sabbath riffs with spacey dispatches a la Pink Floyd. Bigelf travels with a light show...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Feb. 19, Larkin Grimm @ Stonefly Brewery, 10 p.m. Like so many artists on Michael Gira’s Young God label, Larkin Grimm blurs the line between spirituality and pretension, filling her faintly Wiccan gypsy folk with all manner of accidental sounds, foreign accents and loopy instruments (she's also a devoted...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Jan. 29, The Paul Collins Beat w/ Gentleman Jesse and His Men @ Club Garibaldi, 10 p.m. The Paul Collins Beat—an American group once known simply as The Beat until the British band of the same name created brand confusion, forcing the change— was one of the lucky late-’70s power-pop bands granted...

Tonight @ the Stonefly Brewery - 10 p.m.

More in line with Wolfmother and Steppenwolf than, say, Wolf Eyes, Wolf & Cub, We Are Wolves or Aids Wolf, Milwaukee’s Beowolves in their own way pays tribute to the same iconic, wild canine as so many other rock groups from the past half decade. Their brand of hard-rock even has a free-spirited, howling-at-the-moon quality to it, though it isn’t quite as feral as that of...
