Blackberry Smoke @ Shank Hall, 8 p.m. While diverse stylistic range is often the hallmark of profound musical study, sometimes there’s something equally admirable about cornering and perfecting a specific niche.

MadiSalsa @ Jazz in the Park, 6:30 p.m. Although their appearance will do little to satisfy the jazz purists who grumble about the lack of pure, traditional jazz at Jazz in the Park, Madison’s logically named 10-piece ensemble MadiSalsa will certainly please the masses who just want to rumba...

This Week in Milwaukee

If last weekend’s RiverSplash! didn’t make it official enough, there can be no doubt that Milwaukee’s summer festival season has finally arrived now that Jazz in the Park has returned.

Barbara Walters @ Alverno’s Pitman Theatre, 7 p.m. Who would want to know the lurid details of iconic journalist Barbara Walters’ sex life? Apparently plenty of people.

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.
