Sure, it was impressive when the Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavillion cracked the Billboard Top 20 earlier this week, but perhaps a more telling indicator of the band's rising stock is their schedule May 19 concert in Milwaukee: It's been moved from the Turner Hall Ballroom, where it quickly sold out, to the much larger Riverside Theater. That Animal Collective would have been p...

Tonight @ the Riverside Theater - 9 p.m.

Though critics initially derided their dispassionate vocal delivery as an example of '90s postmodernism gone awry, Cake nonetheless scored a steady stream of beloved, trumpet-brandishing alternative hits such as "The Distance," "Never There," "Short Skirt/Long Jacket" and "No Phone" over the following decade. Although their career has slowed since leaving Columbia Records in 2005, the Sacramento band has amassed enough...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Nov. 6, Bob Dylan @ The Riverside Theater, 7:30 p.m. (sold out) Perhaps it’s quality control that accounts for Bob Dylan’s late-career critical resurgence. Since his 1997 comeback Time Out of Mind, Dylan has only released two studio albums, 2001’s Love and Theft and 2006’s Modern Times, both of which were sly...

This Week in Milwaukee

Thursday, Oct. 30, Cornmeal w/ Good Gets Better @ Miramar Theatre, 8 p.m. The Chicago ensemble Cornmeal labels itself “progressive bluegrass,” but that tag may give a misleading impression. While the group isn’t immune to occasional jammy digressions into jazz and rock territory, they stay more closely within...
