This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Oct. 16, Minus the Bear w/ Annuals and Themes @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 7 p.m. With their twisty, tangled guitars and number-crunching chord changes, Minus the Bear sound increasingly disconnected from a greater indie-rock scene that now prefers manic, cute-overload pop or tranquilized...

Tonight @ the Riverside Theater - 8 p.m.

While so many classic rock bands lost their way in the 1980s, ZZ Top actually found theirs. Instead of boogieing with just the traditional blues guitars, they boogied with guitars and cutting-edge synthesizers, scoring some of the biggest hits of their career, songs like “Legs” and “Gimmie All Your Lovin’.” Those synths turned out to be a blessing and a curse, though, as the band found it hard to evolve beyond the dated, robotic grooves that made them a fortune. Their scattered attempts to kick the keyboards cold turkey...

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...

Tonight @ the Riverside Theater - 8 p.m.

Alanis Morissette launched her rock career with Jagged Little Pill, one of the best selling debut albums of all time, so it’s no surprise that she’s had a difficult time topping that introduction. Subsequent albums have been released to ambivalence (and, increasingly, outright disinterest) from critics who are still more interested in learning who “You Oughta Know” was really about than hearing Morissette’s thoughts on spirituality. Morissette’s latest, however, returns the ever-burdened singer to the subject matter that made her a...

Tonight @ the Riverside Theater - 8 p.m.

My Morning Jacket has evolved rapidly since the psychedelic Southern rock of their early albums, pushing themselves in more grandiose, experimental directions for 2005’s tight, masterful Z and 2008’s all-over-the-place Evil Urges, an album that divided critics but certainly didn’t slow their rise. In concert, the band is more of a traditional, Southern-flavored jam guitar band than their studio-crafted albums let on, playing sets that...

As part of his unofficial "Never Ending Tour," Bob Dylan used to roll through Milwaukee (and just about every other city) almost once a year, but as best I can tell it's been a long three years since Dylan last played the city. It's big news, then, that Dylan and his band will return to Milwaukee for a concert at the Riverside Theater on Nov. 6. Tickets go on sale on Friday, Oct. 3 at noon....

Tonight @ the Riverside Theater - 8 p.m.

George Lopez’s self-titled sitcom was often praised for doing for Hispanics what “The Cosby Show” did for African Americans, but that assessment overlooks the elephant in the room: While “The Cosby Show” was above all a great sitcom, “George Lopez” was a joyless regurgitation of the worst sitcom conventions. Don’t hold that against Lopez himself, though. Lopez, who does an 8 p.m. show at the Riverside Theater, is too amiable...
