Tonight @ The Riverside Theater, 8 p.m.

At 77, Willie Nelson's legacy is well cemented, but Nelson keeps recording like he still owes the IRS back taxes. In the last half decade or so, he's released a high-profile country-reggae album; a tribute album to legendary songwriter...

The benefit concert celebrates its 25th anniversary in Milwaukee

Those alliances are part of the reason Farm Aid chose Milwaukee for its 25th anniversary concert, Fahy says. Another deciding factor was the size and convenience of Miller Park, with its retractable roof in case of rain.

Tonight @ Shank Hall - 8 p.m.

Some time around Thanksgiving, The Supersuckers will celebrate their 20th anniversary as punk's answer to hedonistic, cowboy-hat wearing, meat-and-potatoes American rock 'n' roll. Twenty years is long enough for the band, born in Tucson, Ariz., to have moved to Seattle before the grunge movement took full steam . . .

The Supersuckers are the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world. It says so right on their Web site. And album covers. And merchandise. "At least 25% better than the next best band," says Rontrose, the band's one-named guitar player, tongue firmly in cheek. Some time around Thanksgiving, Rontrose and crew will celebrate their 20th anniversary as punk's answer to hedonistic, cowboy-hat wearing, meat-and-potatoes American rock 'n' roll. Twenty years is long enough for the band, born in Tucson, Ariz., to have moved to Seattle before the grunge movement took full steam . . .
