Tripoli Shrine Circus, Cheap Trick and The English Beat

The Tripoli Shriners of Milwaukee have made a name for themselves through their community service and support of the Shriners Hospitals for Children, but to many they’re best known for their local circus, which will give nine performances at the U.S. Cellular Arena through Sunday. Attractions include Polish-trained tigers and lions, a Romanian...

Tonight @ The Potawatomi Bingo Casino, 8 p.m.

Though their late-career sales haven’t matched those of some of the other goliaths of their era, Cheap Trick has stood the test of time better than most bands spawned by the ’70s hard-rock movement. Hits kept them popular...

Farms in Trouble, Lisa Lampanelli, The Hood Internet, Lewis Black and Cheap Trick

Farms in Trouble’s messy, lo-fi pop invites instant comparisons to early Guided by Voices, though the group is even more free-spirited, pasting together fuzzy song pastiches with an anything-can-be-an-instrument-if-you-turn-it-into-one mentality (they’ve been known to play bottles and bike spokes). In the studio this Milwaukee group, which features members of The Candeliers and The Trusty Knife, records straight to cassette...

The Latest (Cheap Trick Unlimited)

Cheap Trick has been around forever, or so it seems. Actually, it's been 35 years since the four lads from Rockford, Ill., formed the band that would become a cornerstone of power-pop, and 20 million albums later-some much better than others-the band is still going strong with The Latest, a cleverly titled follow-up to 2006's consistently effective Rockford...

Jan. 15, 2009

Thanks to Cheap Trick, power-pop rock will forever live on. And based on last week's three-night stand at Potawatomi Bingo Casino, the boys are not only living on, they're full of the same high-level energy as when they started out 35 years ago. Wa...

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

Though their late-career sales haven’t matched those of some of the goliaths of their era, Cheap Trick has stood the test of time better than most bands spawned by the ’70s hard-rock movement. Hits kept them popular through the ’80s; Steve Albini, Nirvana and Weezer kept them relevant well into the ’90s; and “Guitar Hero” and the dozens of pop-punk bands that have covered “Surrender” should guarantee the group infamy for at least another...

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

Though their late-career sales don’t always show it, Cheap Trick has stood the test of time better than most bands spawned by the ’70s hard-rock movement. Hits kept them popular through the ’80s; Steve Albini, Nirvana and Weezer kept them relevant well into the ’90s; and “Guitar Hero” and the dozens of pop-punk bands that have covered “Surrender” should guarantee the group infamy for at least another generation. Of course...

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...

Budokan! (Epic/Legacy)

There should be little argument that Cheap Trick's 1979 live album, At Budokan, ranks among rock's seminal live recordings, paving the way for practically every band that dared call itself "power pop." No wonder Epic Records has reissued numerous versions of that April 1978 concert at Tokyo's Nippon Budokan arena over the years. But none comes close to Budokan!, the Godzilla of reissues, featuring three CDs and one DVD that mark the original...
