At her saddest, the voice of Edith Piaf was sorrow itself, intimating that love is a state of unsatisfiable yearning and life is melancholy without end. When she was ebullient, however, Piaf was a bolt of electricity. She was France’s analog to Billie Holiday and like the American jazz singer, led a troubled life and died too young. One of 2007’s great films, La Vie en Rose, has been...

"I would do it the same," says Vinnie Kircher of the latest recording session by his garage-pop band, Jail. "I guess when you're done, you think you could have experimented more, but at some point you've gone overboard and you've got to let some things go." Kircher's belief of losing the bells and whistles that hundreds of musicians tie themselves to is refreshing. The singer/guitarist isn't shy about his...

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.

"I didn't think he could do it," recalls lead singer and guitarist...

Tonight @ Caf 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...
