 It's hard to believe that three days of German Fest have gone by. It must be all of the munching on rollbraten, sipping on beer and wine, and live entertainment that's made the time fly.  Still, have no fear, the party is still on.  In fact, German Fest has saved the best for last and is going out with a "bang".  The German Fest organizers are packing three times the "boom" into one specta...

Back To Brady Street Days

If it’s lucky, a city will offer one of those streets that seems to have a magnetic force field running its length, attracting not just a certain segment of the population, but nearly everyone: scenesters and trendsetters, hedonists and daters, lollygaggers and bohemians, and all those that defy a label.

    The best thing to pair with a little dog such as myself is a little kid.  They love to play, get messy, and eat foods that stick to their face, and so do I.  That’s why I’m excited that German Fest is featuring a lineup of kid-friendly attractions and activities for the 2008 Fest.  Here’s a run-down of the kiddie-fun that has my tail wagging:     All Weekend Long: German Fest...

There are a lot of reasons I run. Sometimes I run for practice before the big race, sometimes I run to fetch a tennis ball, sometimes I run because chasing my tail gets boring after a while. While my four-legged friends and I will be racing on the German Fest grounds on Saturday July, 26, you and your two-legged friends can join in for 620 WTMJ’s Bill Michaels 5K Run/Walk for the Hungry, benefi...

Tonight @ the Zippo Rock Stage, 8 p.m.

They’re best known as an alt-country band, but Old 97’s, who do an 8 p.m. show at the Zippo Rock Stage tonight, cover more territory than that restrictive label suggests. Their newest album, this May’s Blame It On Gravity, is their flashiest yet, a pointed set of bombastic rock and sly pop that keeps its eyes locked...

Today at Cascio Groove Garage

Another day of Summerfest, another great set of local bands playing the Cascio Groove Garage, sponsored by Shepherd Express and ExpressMilwaukee.com. Among today’s highlights is a 4:15 p.m. set from Milwaukee’s awesome Brief Candles. They play sweeping, sugarcoated shoegaze with lovely, Cocteau Twins...

CANCELLED

Since winning the third season of “American Idol,” R&B superstar Fantasia Barrino seems to have escaped the curse that haunts many of the show’s most promising performers (anyone seen Ruben Studdard or Taylor Hicks lately?)...
