The Fairly Detached Observers

I`m Art Kumbalek and here's the story. The Shepherd wants a weekly sports column, since sports apparently seems to be a popular topic of conversation these days amongst a certain clique. And somehow I got tabbed to helm the launching of this craft; qualifications being I don't need to spell-check "Lambeau,"...

The Fairly Detached Observers

The Brewers had found a way to avoid sweeping the Braves, but were fixin’ to sweep the ‘Stros, when the Observers found their way to a local establishment for a couple of cold ones on a sunny May 30.

The Fairly Detached Observers

Frank: Well, Artie, I think this first cold one should be a toast to ourselves. It’s clear that we provided the impetus for those sweeps of the Astros and D-Backs. Artie: You betcha, my friend. Um, exactly how did we do that? Not that I’m opposed to toasting us.

The Fairly Detached Observers

The NBA was having the best of times and worst of times when the Observers got together on June 13. The vintage Lakers-Celtics matchup for the championship was clouded by allegations from disgraced referee Tim Donaghy that other refs skewed their calls to help the Lakers win a crucial game in the 2002 Western...

Sometime between those two, MLB pleads with its players, managers and umpires to pick up the pace of games. It happened again in May. Somehow, completing nine innings takes upward of a half-hour longer...

The “starrs” this time around include Edgar Winter, Gary Wright, Billy Squier and Colin Hay (of Men at Work), so expect the odd set-list at this sold-out show...

Tonight @ Miller Park - 7:05 p.m.

The Milwaukee Brewers debut their high-profile new addition—Cleveland Indians’ left-handed pitcher C.C. Sabathia—tonight at its 7:05 game against the Colorado Rockies. Expectations are high, as the team believes Sabathia will be the pitcher that helps break the Brewers’ 26-year-playoff draught. Here’s betting...

Tonight @ Borg Ward

All grinding guitars, discount-Casio beats, disorganized clatter, disembodied blips and nasally call-and-response shouts, Los Angeles’ The Mae Shi revel in their art school obnoxiousness, spinning it against the odds into hooky gold. Rising stars on the Internet, where their clever music videos give them a visual edge...

Tonight @ the Cactus Club

Lacking the get-up-and-go beat or melodic ambience of acts like Aphex Twin or Telefon Tel Aviv, Milwaukee’s Dartanjal feels perhaps purposely far from conventional music. As practitioners of both audio and visual art, music makers Jon Minor and Jim Schoenecker often attempt to bridge the gaps between the two mediums...
