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...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, March 26, Brian Regan @ The Riverside Theater, 7:30 p.m. For a comedian, a Patton Oswalt endorsement is like having Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski tell you he likes the way you play basketball— it means you’re pretty good at what you do. Brian Regan’s observational comedy lives up to the praise Oswalt...

As he nears the end of his long tenure as music director, he has enduring affection and good will from the audience, obvious in the smiles and applause that greeted him.

Thursday, Feb. 26, The Milwaukee Music Awards @ Mad Planet, 8 p.m. Since re-launching as RadioMilwaukee two years ago, WYMS 88.9 has made a concerted effort to advance Milwaukee music— not by opening its doors to all local artists, but by showcasing the work of a chosen few, granting them the constant exposure...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Feb. 19, Larkin Grimm @ Stonefly Brewery, 10 p.m. Like so many artists on Michael Gira’s Young God label, Larkin Grimm blurs the line between spirituality and pretension, filling her faintly Wiccan gypsy folk with all manner of accidental sounds, foreign accents and loopy instruments (she's also a devoted...

Tonight @ The Pabst Theater, 8 p.m.

Lyle Lovett knows that great songwriting can be a means to an end, one that reaches out and touches audiences. The long, tall Texan, who's won several Grammy Awards, has written plenty of great country tracks, becoming a crossover star at a time when the genre wasn’t producing many.

I'm not sure if it was the crowd skewed a couple years older (and a solid tax bracket or two higher) than the usual audience, the the crowd at Friday night's lovely Antony and the Johnsons concert was a thing of beauty.
