This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Nov. 20, Fastball @ Shank Hall, 8 p.m. Thanks to “The Way,” a ubiquitous single that nicely dovetailed with adultcontemporary radio’s renewed interest in Heartland-tinted rock, Fastball was among radio’s breakthrough stars of 1998. Though a couple of likable follow-up singles...

This Week in Milwaukee

Southern Culture on the Skids @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 8 p.m. Though Southern Culture on the Skids sings of mobile homes, boxsized motels, fried chicken and other phenomena mostly associated with the land south of the Mason-Dixon, the band would fit right in with Milwaukee’s punk- and rockabilly-loving music...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Sept. 18, The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir @ The UWM Gasthaus, 8 p.m. Despite what their moniker promises, The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir isn’t from Scotland; they don’t play gospel; and, for that matter, they’re not a choir.

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Sept. 11, Neil Hamburger @ Cactus Club, 10 p.m. With his greasy comb-over, cheap tuxedo, poor comic timing and frequent, phlegmy coughing fits, Neil Hamburger’s sendup of bad stand-ups should be almost as tired as the bad stand-ups he’s mocking. But Hamburger’s shtick is really just a vehicle for his...

Tonight @ the Stonefly Brewery - 9 p.m.

In a city where accordions are used almost exclusively for celebratory purposes, singer-songwriter Margaret Stutt has the audacity to use them to make sad music. With her latest project, Pezzettino, she alternates between piano and an accordion, sighing restless, lovelorn songs, touching on Tori Amos’ stark . . .

Tonight @ the Stonefly Brewery - 9 p.m.

Portland’s Laura Gibson may only have started recording in recent years, but her rich, nylon-string Americana melodies enjoy a long history dating back to soft, comforting Depression-era fireside hymns. That’s not to say Gibson is entirely tethered to her country/blue grass roots. She crafts modern . . .

This Week in Milwaukee

Friday, May 23, Milwaukee Bonecrushers vs. Rock River Raptors @ U.S. Cellular Arena, 7:30 p.m. “HERE TO STAY!” the Milwaukee Bonecrushers’ Web site defiantly declares, but the team has often seemed as unlikely to make it through its inaugural season as Hillary Clinton is to make it to the Democratic convention.
