For years, Lucero has been tagged as an alt-country group, but ask frontman Ben Nichols about the label and it's obvious he's always seen his band in a different light. “When we started, we got lumped in with the alt-country stuff...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Aug. 27, Prestige Atlantic Impulse @ Sugar Maple, 8 p.m. Affirming Victor DeLorenzo’s status as perhaps the most musically adventurous of all the Violent Femmes, the drummer’s new project, Prestige Atlantic Impulse, is an experimental jazz trio worlds removed from the Femmes’ signature folk-punk.

Thursday, July 30, Vans Warped Tour @ Marcus Amphitheater, 11 a.m. Political punk curmudgeons Bad Religion and Anti-Flag sharing tour dates with electro-quirk bands like 3OH!3 and InnerPartySystem? It must be time for another Vans Warped Tour. As usual, the tour’s...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, July 2, Femi Kuti @ Potawatomi Bingo Casino Rock Stage, Summerfest, 10 p.m. Afro-beat might sound like an obscure style of music (particularly for those who haven’t recently lived on college campuses, where it’s becoming especially popular), but it’s actually...

Summerfest revealed its final 2009 Marcus Amphitheater headliner today, and it's an inspired one: KISS, the iconic, heavily merchandised hard-rock band. Though Ace Frehley (the Spaceman) and Peter Criss (meow) left the band earlier this decade, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley have been working on new material, penning an album they'd hoped to release last year (that never happened). This year has be...

Summerfest has announced its second Marcus Amphitheater headliner for 2009 and it's... another country act. Kenny Chesney, the former Mr. Renee Zellweger and proud, oft-shirtless singer of the you-can't-make-this-up C&W hit "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy," will top a July 3 bill that also features Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum. Tickets go on sale Saturday, Feb. 14 at 10 a.m. via Ti...

For most, the timing is more noteworthy than the announcement: Summerfest announced its first headlining act for 2009: George Strait, who will play the Marcus Amphitheater on Monday, June 29. The announcement of Summerfest's first 2009 act seems to have arrived earlier than usual, perhaps a sign that future amphitheater headliners will be unvieled more promptly this year than they were last, whe...

This Week in Milwaukee

Nas w/ Talib Kweli @ The Rave, 8 p.m. Given the inability of Nas’ last album to explain exactly why hip-hop was dead, the media understandably greeted Nas’ latest untitled album, originally titled Nigger, with great skepticism. Against the odds, though, the rapper created a piece of art that more than addressed...

Tonight @ the Marcus Amphitheater - 7 p.m.

The same magic that allowed Counting Crows' unkempt, dreadlocked singer Adam Duritz to date two of the three female leads from "Friends" must have carried over to Duritz's music career, because 15 years after the band's blockbuster debut album, they're still playing arenas and amphitheaters. In a testament to the . . .
