A lot, actually

By Evan Rytlewski
They say eyes are the window into the soul, but for my money, music tells you way more.

Like all tight-knit communities, it doesn't take much to whip Milwaukee into a frenzy, but lately the city has seemed even more frenzy-prone than usual, following news of Alterra's name change, Pizza Man's reopening and, most prominently, Ryan Braun's suspension.
