Shopping for new shades and glasses

July 22, 2015 5:01 a.m.

I need a new pair of glasses. I have two pair with my current prescription and one (an awesome SwissFlex frame) with outdated lenses. Yet, I seldom wear either pair other than late at night. This isn't probably the best course for my long term eye health, so I'm on the hunt for a new, cool frame.

The Bronx Wanderers roam around, around, around into Festa Italiana

July 17, 2015 1:26 p.m.

Every band has at least a small group of devoted fans cheering it on and supporting it on its way to the spotlight. The retro "nu-wop" family band The Bronx Wanderers, coming to Festa Italiana this weekend, is no different - except some of those devoted fans just happen to be entertainment icons from their hometown neighborhood, including Dion DiMucci, Tony Orlando and Oscar-nominated actors Chazz Palminteri and Danny Aiello.

Summerfest 2015 by the numbers

July 7, 2015 6:56 p.m.

Early Tuesday evening, Summerfest announced the preliminary results for this year's Big Gig, and despite delivering 12 days of rocking music entertainment, the end numbers reflected the weather and bus challenges and came in less than rocking.

A conversation with Sammy Hagar

July 5, 2015 3:36 a.m.

At age 68, Sammy Hagar effortlessly exudes a casual, southern California kind of beach bum charm during an interview before his headliner show at Summerfest's Miller Lite Oasis. "Hi, I'm Sammy," he says, jumping off a ratty sofa and shaking my hand. "So, what are gonna talk about," he says with a huge grin.

Avett Brothers fill the Amp with superb strumming, if not spectators

July 5, 2015 3:06 a.m.

It shouldn't have come as a surprise to see the Marcus Amphitheater a maybe generous 50 percent full - albeit an extremely enthusiastic and appreciative 50 percent - on Saturday night for The Avett Brothers. But while the bluegrass folk rock band had apparent problems filling the venue with fans, the band had no problem whatsoever completely filling the venue with strong, soulful music on the Fourth of July.
