  Frankie, here, with more news about German Fest. One of the things that gets me all fired up about racing is knowing that at the finish line, there’s always a treat waiting for me. Plain and simple, I love food. Despite the family resemblance, hot dogs, brats and sausages are among my favorites eats. “Naschen,” that’s German for eating, is one of the biggest reasons people come ...

Tonight @ the Potawatomi Bingo Casino Stage

Dweezil Zappa has been playing guitar for much of his life, but of his many, scattered musical projects, he’s found the most success with Zappa Plays Zappa, a rotating tribute band he fronts paying homage to his legendary father, Frank Zappa. Their shows tend to focus on the more rock-oriented...

Keller Williams, Yonder Mountain String Band, O.A.R.

A singer-songwriter turned one-man band/human jukebox to appease for the jam scene, Keller Williams headlines the Miller Lite oasis at 10 p.m. Expect lots of funky guitar riffs and maybe even a cover of a Pink Floyd song or two...

Tonight @ the U.S. Cellular Connection Stage

Industrial rockers Filter may have had only one song, but man, what a song. A shamelessly exploitative hit about suicide, “Hey Man Nice Shot” suggested gory, crime-scene details where Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy” demurred. Tasteless? Sure, especially with Kurt Cobain’s gunshot-heard-round-the-world...

Today at Cascio Groove Garage

First there were the Beatles and then came the Buggs, Milwaukee's tongue-in-cheek, punk-rock tribute to the four lads from Liverpool. The Buggs' unique approach has won enthusiastic crowds at Summerfest, Bucks games and other big venues, but has placed them a little between...

Paramore, Gin Blossoms, Candlebox, Matisyahu

Separating themselves from legions of other Warped Tour/Alternative Press-approved pop-punkers, Paramore is fronted by spunky starlet Hayley Williams, a 19-year-old who is, refreshingly, like a real 19-year-old. The group’s charmingly overproduced 2007 album, Riot! is an emo-rific depiction...

Today at Cascio Groove Garage

As usual, some of the best bands playing Summerfest today hail from right here in Milwaukee. Among the draws playing the all-local Cascio Groove Garage stage today is alternative-rockers Testa Rosa, country-rockers Juniper Tar and, at 8:30 p.m., The Celebrated Workingman, who throw down happy, hooky indie-rock.

Today @ Cascio Groove Garage Stage

Milwaukee’s own Year of the Gun, which headlines the all-local Cascio Groove Garage stage tonight at 9 p.m., embraces all that is rock. With a penchant for songs glamorizing booze, sex and other good old, all-American pastimes, the band is driven by guitar above all else...
