Plus: Kramp’s shirts and a mysterious crunk single

Some local bands announce themselves loudly, but pop-rockers Jail have opted for a different approach. The group plays just a smattering of Milwaukee shows every couple of months, then disappears for lengthy periods. “We’re not aggressively booking local shows—we’re more interested in touring,” explains . . .

Decibully

Nearly a year and a half after its completion, this December Decibully will finally release their ambitious third album, World Travels Fast, a gorgeous, kaleidoscopic indie-rock record about changing

Tonight @ The Cactus Club, 10 p.m.

Def Jam rappers aren’t the only ones subject to development hell. Milwaukee’s saturnine indie-rockers Decibully took years to craft a follow-up to 2005’s Sing Out America, only to learn their one-time label, Polyvinyl, has no interest in releasing it (a slap in the face, considering how the label still makes time for all the side projects that Tim and Mike Kinsella crap out). It could be quite a while until the band finds a distributor for their...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Jan. 22, Trampled by Turtles @ Shank Hall, 8 p.m. Bluegrass thrives on dynamism—part of its thrill is seeing musicians gleefully blitz through complex chord changes and solos with whirlwind speed. Trampled By Turtles, despite what their animal namesake suggests, play as fast as any other bluegrass outfit...

Tonight @ the Turner Hall Ballroom - 7 p.m.

In a sign of the growing interest in the Milwaukee music scene, tonight’s most buzzed about concert is headlined by a trio of great local bands. Decibully, who write sprawling, richly textured indie-rock opuses, top tonight’s 7 p.m. show at the Turner Hall Ballroom, in advance of a recently recorded new . . .

Mark Waldoch had saved up the necessary money, prepared himself emotionally to leave behind Milwaukee, his home of 15 years, and was ready to start a new life in New York. What he hadn't planned on, though, was developing a kidney stone the size of a golf ball shortly after his arrival. "I was in and out of the hospital for two months, put under anesthesia and all that," Waldoch shudders. "It was rough. I mean, talk about insane, they put a laser up my wang to blow up the kidney stone. I had to wear a catheter." With no health insurance to fall back on, Waldoch quickly exhausted his savings. In considerable debt, he returned to Milwaukee . . .

My first instinct when I heard about the recently announced Forward Music Festival in Madison, Wis., was jealousy. I lamented that Madison was able to create a multi-venue music fest, since it seemed impossible one would ever occur in Milwaukee, where it's no secret that promoters don't always get along with each other. I'd have bet money that Milwaukee wouldn't see a multi-venue partne...

After a year and a half of inactivity, the Milwaukee hardcore band Since By Man made it official, announcing plans to break up following one last show this Saturday. Band members have already begun moving on to other careers, projects and cities. That it took them months to settle on a date for their long-planned farewell show speaks volumes about how divergent their paths had become. “We still enjoyed playing together, and our shows were great,” explains singer Sam Macon, “but the writing process was becoming stressful, and we were having difficulty coming up with material for our third album. Creatively, we were growing apart.”
