The band name We’rewolves resulted from a misunderstanding between the group’s members, Eliah Koerner (vocals, keyboard), Dan Perlstein (drums) and Ryan “Smitty” Smith (bass). “I said, ‘Let’s call ourselves The Vampires,’” Perlstein recalled. “And Smitty said, ‘How about werewolves?’ and I thought he said ‘we’rewolves,’ like ‘we are wolves.’” The contraction was subsequently expanded into a song in which the group chants “We are all wolves!” over and over. I interviewed the band before a recent show at Mad Planet. It was raining, and they stood huddled under . . .

Dance Preview

In a chamber experience of dance mixed with visuals, three different media will be featured in UW-Milwaukee’s Dance Triptych, opening this week at Kenilworth Square East Gallery. A trio of UWM faculty collaborated on the project, bringing diverse talents and inspirations to the performance. The paintings and visuals of Leslie Vansen explore the meaning of human existence and the indelible footprint it leaves on the planet.

On Monday Montel Williams’ publicist offers to have the mustachioed talk-show host apologize on air to 17-year-old Courtney Scott, after threatening to blow her up. Williams, whose tact is rivaled only by his hair growth, had walked out of an interview with the high school intern for the Savanna Morning News early last Saturday. Hours later, Scott went to cover a separate story - on gingerbrea...

Plus: Three’s Finest House Wine

Chuck Love’s musical diversity may have landed him a spot with crossover label giant Om Records, but it’s his musical understanding that has kept him on the radar of the underground electronic audiences for more than three years. The Minneapolis musician didn’t start impacting the house scene until early 2005, when his breakthrough Frozen in Minneapolis EP debuted on Miguel Migs’ Salted Music impact. Backed by the commercially savvy appeal of an artist such as Migs, Love’s multi-tasking music style became a hot commodity at clubs across the country.

For sheer visual fun, Antony Tudor's take on the Moulin Rouge, "Offenbach in the Underworld" literally provided a glimpse of the "under" world of the can-can dancers (along with their frilly undergarments) as the different social classes meet up in an 1870s caf, rife with jealousy, flirtations and ensuing brawls.

Seventh Tree (Mute)

On their last two albums, 2003's Black Cherry and 2005's Supernature, the duo of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory—known together under her surname—achieved the uncommon feat of making dance music that didn't require its listeners to stop thinking.

Tonight @ the Jackalope Lounj - 10 p.m.

Los Angeles’ Troublemaker is no stranger to high-profile paying gigs, having DJed Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 60th birthday party and remixed Linkin Park for their Reanimation album. Troublemaker’s brand of electronica is every bit as suave as you’d expect from a guy who’s managed to make . . .
