This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, April 9, Brandi Carlile @ The Pabst Theater, 8 p.m. Like so many of her adult-contemporary peers who owe much of their name recognition to appearances on the “Grey’s Anatomy” soundtrack, Brandi Carlile plays melancholic but melodious folk-pop. She distinguishes herself, though, with an unusually...

Several readers and a couple of acquaintances e-mailed me for my take on a letter to the editor I posted this week from "Concerned Concert-goers," a group frustrated by how recent shows at the Pabst Theater (Neko Case) and Turner Hall Ballroom (Animal Collective) have been rescheduled at the Riverside Theater. My take: I thought the readers brought up a valid point�valid enough to post, at leas...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Feb. 5, The Championship @ The Mitchell Park Domes, 6 p.m. Though the band mostly plays smoky corner bars, mournful Americana songs about long drives and long nights deserve to be heard outdoors. Tonight’s unusual gig, however, where the group plays as part of the Mitchell Park Domes'...

A group of four "concerned concert-goers" has drafted up a letter to the Pabst Theater that they also sent over the Shepherd: Dear Pabst Theater, We are writing to formally lodge a complaint. Why do you keep changing venues for your shows? Actually, we know why, it is so you can make more money, at the expense of the concert-goer. We understand that moving the venue allows...

I could blame them for not wanting to return, given the cretinous audience at their show here last spring, but the HBO comedy duo Flight of the Conchords are returning on May 2 for two shows at the Riverside, at 7 and 10 p.m. That should give Milwaukee fans plenty of time to stock up on laser pointers or whatever else they need to find new ways to sabotage the performance this time around. The $35...
