And now they're back for a third show at the Eagles Ballroom: They'll headline the second night of FM 102.1's Big Snow Show on Tuesday, Dec. 16, joined on the bill by Walk the Moon and Milwaukee's Fueled By Ramen si...

Milwaukee's alternative station FM 102.1 has announced the headliners for the first night of its ninth annual Big Snow Show Holiday concert: Cage the Elephant, Alt-J, Fitz and the Tantrums, Vance Joy and Meg Myers.

Since releasing its triumphant sophomore album Repave last year, Volcano Choir has been Justin Vernon's primary concern. The group has toured around the world behind the album, with a pit stop on "The Tonight Show" along the way, and now that tour has taken them full circle with one more show in Milwaukee, the last of their Repave tour. They'll headline the Turner Hall Ballroom at 8 p.m. on Sunday...

By this point you've either succumbed to Iggy Azalea's summer hit "Fancy," or you're fundamentally put off by the rapper who's looking more and more like 2014's answer to Mackelmore (if Mackelmore were an Australian model who rhymed in a very practiced fake Atlanta drawl). Both are perfectly defensible positions. If you're in the pro-Iggy camp, though, you'll get a chance to see her live soon. Tod...

It's been 23 years since a heavily flannelled Pearl Jam released their debut album, Ten, a blockbuster that helped fuel the ’90s alt-rock explosion and introduced the band as the everyman alternative to Nirvana. The band’s long run is particularly noteworthy considering the tragic fates of many of the other Washington grunge bands of the era. In all that time, though, they've never played at M...

With August Alsina

Once again this year, 2 Chainz was inescapable on rap radio, thanks to features on singles by just about every name artist in his genre. He received less attention, though, for his own record, B.O.A.T.S. 2: Me Time, a smarter, more confident sequel to his 2012 debut. Today the Rave announced that the rapper will headline the venue with another rapper who released his own underrated album this year...

With a new lineup

By Shepherd Express Staff
Indie-rock veterans Built to Spill will return to the Turner Hall Ballroom on Friday, November 15, the venue announced this morning. They last played the ballroom in 2010, when they were touring behind their latest album, 2009's There is No Enemy. The band had been fairly quiet in the years since, taking a rare break from the road before announcing a new lineup this year. Longtime drummer Scott Pl...
