Tonight @ Stonefly Brewery - 10 p.m.

The Milwaukee rock trio The Delta Routine conjure the sound of vintage Rolling Stones and old punk bands like The Stooges and New York Dolls in an attempt to return to the basics of rock 'n' roll. The band members act like rockers from the '70s as well, with a lifestyle that involves only three things: music, women and beer. Tonight the group splits a 10 p.m. bill at the Stonefly Brewery with The Soup.

Rock ’n’ roll basics, rock-star excesses

In May The Delta Routine confronted a pressing dilemma that would completely change the face of this raw, Milwaukee rock group. A car accident that injured the band's bassist left the group a week to find a replacement before its show at RiverSplash. With just three days until the gig, Evan Paydon stepped up, quickly learning three hours of set-material and eventually becoming a permanent member of the trio. "I didn't think he could do it," recalls lead singer and guitarist...

Tonight @ Café Lulu - 11 p.m.

Milwaukee’s music scene is far too vast to be represented by just one band, but if you had to pick just one posterchild, you could do a lot worse than The Goodnight Loving. The group touches on many of the sounds Milwaukeeans love most, from rollicking, twang-kissed guitars and thumping rockabilly bass to the unlabored pop hooks of '60s garage-rock. And by virtue of being a band arguably classifiable as "acoustic folk-punk," the group owes at least a cursory hat tip to...

This Week in Milwaukee

Though theyre not the first band to disco-up (or Panic at the Disco-up) the old Duran Duran playbook, The White Tie Affair wins points for earnestness. Without falling.

Wiscosnin ready to snap out of it? October 21, 2007 | 01:54 PM According to this article (though who would know since it wasn't televised here) the UW football team finally took the field with some intensity yesterday. It's about damn time. Jonathan Casillas, among others, say in the article that the fire was missing from the team in the past few weeks. That fire has been missing all season, b...

Oct. 3, 2008

   To many indie rock purists, My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James has committed a most grievous sin: He has infected the scene with a sort of jam-band aesthetic. And, based upon their recent sold-out show at the Riverside Theater, such cr...

Dead Confederate rebuffs Southern-rock conventions

Though his band's name seems pretty self-explanatory to him, Dead Confederate bassist Brantley Senn is amazed at how often it's misinterpreted.   "We're supposed to play this show sponsored by a cigarette company that rhymes with 'mammal,' and they refused to even put our name on the tickets," Senn says with a sigh. "They had a writer that refused to even write about us, because he said the name was racist. How dumb is that? We're Dead Confederate. It's not like we're Alive and Well and Retired in Florida Confederate."

Tonight @ the Turner Hall Ballroom - 7:30 p.m.

A contemporary of Steve Earle, Rodney Crowell cut his teeth playing in Emmylou Harris’ Hot Band before literally marrying into country royalty, wedding Rosanne Cash and producing her albums until their 1992 divorce. He’s had an on-again/off-again solo career, too, most memorably recording the great 1988 album Diamonds and Dirt, a mean...
