This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Oct. 30, Cornmeal w/ Good Gets Better @ Miramar Theatre, 8 p.m. The Chicago ensemble Cornmeal labels itself “progressive bluegrass,” but that tag may give a misleading impression.

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Oct. 23, Local H w/ The Cocksmiths @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 8 p.m. Mostly unchanged since their minor hit “Bound for the Floor” in the ’90s, Local H’s music still crashes and thrashes in deference to the glory days of grunge-rock but a steady stream of respectable new material and a road-tested two-...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Aug. 14, Love in October w/ Luminol @ Points East Pub, 10 p.m. Though Minneapolis’ Love in October prefers to shroud their album covers and Web site in images from the early 20th century, their take on bittersweet, Saturday-afternoon alt-rock is distinctly modern.

Tuesday, August 5, 2008

In pigtails and a prim frock at the Miramar Theatre last Tuesday night, with her childlike fašade pianist and singer-songwriter Vienna Teng belied a lyrical maturity and vast musical range that shifted from chamber pop to soul and jazz, spliced with bits of wit and candor.

Tonight @ the Miramar Theatre - 7:30 p.m.

Borrowing heavily from traditional European influences, the Taiwanese-American singer-songwriter Vienna Teng, who plays the Miramar Theatre tonight at 7:30 p.m., elegantly incorporates deeply personalized lyrical revelations into strictly subdued piano pieces and, sometimes, densely orchestral string pieces . . .
