This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, July 31, CSS w/ The Go! Team and Matt & Kim @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 8 p.m. Hailing from Sao Paulo and sounding like a self-aware, electro-chic version of Avril Lavigne with a playfully dry sense of humor, CSS seemingly survived the pitfalls of a cutesy beginning in iPod Touch commercials...

   From the moment the first chords of “Message in a Bottle” sounded for what appeared to be a capacity Marcus Amphitheater crowd, it was clear last Friday’s hot, muggy night belonged to Sting, Stewart Copeland and Andy Su...

Tonight @ the Marcus Amphitheater - 7:30 p.m.

The Police made major headlines when, after 20 years apart, they announced they were reuniting for a tour. The group has been playing behind ever-so-delicately tweaked versions of their hits for a little more than a year now, and the tour has paid handsomely—it’s expected to become the third highest-grossing tour . . .

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, July 24, Extra Golden w/ Kings Go Forth @ Cactus Club, 9 p.m. Compared to the typical music scenes, Nairobi, Kenya stands out as a curiously unique starting point for the multina tional Extra Golden, which owes as much stylistically to classic American rock aesthetics as traditional Kenyan Benga music.

Tonight @ the Marcus Amphitheater

After all these years, 3 Doors Down are still writing soundtrack-ready, doom-and-gloom scorchers about matters of life-and-death urgency. It’s a profitable formula, and all their albums since their 2000 hit single “Kryptonite” have charted reliably. It’s been a while since Staind, who open for 3 Doors Down at their 6:30...

Tonight @ the Marcus Amphitheater

Their regular-dude image may suggest otherwise, but Rascal Flatts really isn’t a country band anymore. Save for that rural drawl in their vocals, and the odd steel-guitar accent here and there, the group’s recent albums reside almost exclusively in the terrain of adult-contemporary pop...

Tonight @ the Marcus Amphitheater

Born in Milwaukee, educated in Madison and famous the world over, Steve Miller nonetheless seems an unlikely candidate to headline the Marcus Amphitheater. After all, his last single to top the charts (“Abracadabra”) came more than a quarter-century ago, and he hasn’t released a studio album since 1993’s Wide River.

Tonight @ Marcus Amphitheater

Like that other small-town romanticizing heartland-rocker, Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp balances pop prowess with bighearted, populist ambitions. Even his grand-old, flag-waving Chevrolet-selling love letter to the working class, “Our Country,” was anchored by a progressive...
