CDs: Ghostface Killah, The Hives Big doe and just "doh" Ghostface Killah – The Big Doe Rehab Now I see why Ghostface threw such a stink about Wu-Tang releasing their new album on the same day as his: It would be a shame if Big Doe Rehab were overshadowed by the Clan's long overdue reunion. That's not to say that Big Doe is a complete masterpiece—it's padded with some filler, and there's some...

Gone October 11, 2007 | 07:04 AM I've been less than diligent about blogging this week and it's because I finally joined the technological age and got an ipod. This means that I do nothing from the time I get home from work until the time I go to bed but download cds. I'm not even close to being done, but I've got the good stuff, so I promise I'll be back more this weekend. Nicole...

BCS poll out October 15, 2007 | 06:55 AM If ever there were a question about what kind of topsy-turvy upside down, wild college football season we're having, the BCS rankings that came out yesterday confirm it. We've got two one-loss teams in the top 5. Ohio State, who was not even in any Big Ten championship conversations to start the year is the #1 team. South Florida (who?) is the #2 team.The...

Johnny Estrada, Captain Obvious October 22, 2007 | 06:06 PM This article from the Journal-Sentinel has Johnny Estrada saying his performance this season was "pathetic". Welcome to the bandwagon Johnny, you're a little late to the party. Clearly I'm more than a little bitter about Estrada this season, and not just because he was so bored and mean at the 2nd Brewers Block Party this season. Maybe...

Tonight @ Shank Hall - 8 p.m.

Maybe it runs in the family. The late Luther Allison played some of the best electric Chicago blues ever recorded, and these days his youngest son, Bernard Allison, has carried on in his footsteps. Like his father, Allison plays sweaty electric blues, but he also puts his own, youthful stamp on the genre, bringing in swatches of rock and funk into his sound as well...

Tonight @ the Potawatomi Bingo Casino - 8 p.m.

No longer a child prodigy (he’s just a plain old prodigy now), Jonny Lang continues to be one of the most popular contemporary blues guitarists. His most recent album, Turn Around, won a 2007 Grammy Award for Best Rock or Rap Gospel Album—a curious category for him, perhaps, but an honor nonetheless. In conjunction...
