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...

   The tension was there from the beginning. Rowdy and soused, the crowd cheered for a rock show. What they got instead was Eddie Vedder alone on a stool, wearing a leisurely pair of white pants, singing Cat Stevens.   In misguided d...

Tonight @ the Riverside Theater - 7:30 p.m.

Eddie Vedder’s deep-throated yowl has been parroted by some of the very worst modern music has to offer, from odious “American Idol” contestants to chest-beating Christian rockers. Don’t hold it against him. Vedder himself has denounced the stage-diving, jock-rock posturing of Pearl Jam’s early . . .

The Alice Cooper "traveling musical and theatrical extravaganza" made its way to Milwaukee again last Friday, for the third time in the past three years. The Coop must like Brew Town-his bassist Chuck Garric is a local boy-and the feeling i...

Tonight @ the Riverside Theater - 8 p.m.

Especially for younger listeners who weren’t around to hear “School’s Out” upon its original release, it’s difficult to think of Alice Cooper without remembering his cameo appearance as the benevolent American history teacher in Wayne’s World. That scene, in which Cooper eloquently explains the Algonquin origins of “mill . . .
