Indie rock band King Washington plants its flag in Milwaukee

Published Nov. 26, 2014

King Washington - comprised of bassist Billy Lee and guitarists Tyson Kelly and George Krikes - hails from Los Angeles, so it's safe to say the recent hammering of cold winds and sleet isn't exactly something they're used to. The guys are more used to wearing petticoats and frills - their signature outfit - than heavy winter coats. Even with the weather, though, Milwaukee feels like a second home for the indie rock band.

The Found Footage Festival celebrates 10 years of terrible videos

Published Nov. 24, 2014

As the creators of the Found Footage Festival, Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett are no strangers to bad ideas. And they'd have it no other way. For the past decade, that's exactly what Prueher, Pickett and the Found Footage Festival have done: showing people the best of the worst cheap VHS tapes the world has to offer, videos that can often make the tape from "The Ring" seem like a blissful rom-com.

Manilow to perform one last time in Milwaukee

Published Nov. 19, 2014

Barry Manilow has announced that he is going to "hit the road" and perform across the country for his "One Last Time!" tour, which will include a stop at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Feb. 24, 2015.

Youthful Mad RED Kat aims for rock stardom

Published Nov. 17, 2014

They aren't old enough to legally smoke, drink or even drive. If "This Is Spinal Tap" was in theaters, they wouldn't be able to see it without their parents, and if you add together the ages of all five band members, the quintet's combined age (63) would still be younger than Sir Paul McCartney (72). But while most kids' dreams of rock glory only go as far as that - dreams - Mad RED Kat has already started acting on its aspirations, forming a band and playing gigs across the city.

Famous surnames aside, Wainwright Roche's is an important voice in modern folk

Published Nov. 14, 2014

Serious music fans will relate. Though a lot of music enters my ears, very few make the kind of impression that Lucy Wainwright Roche's 2013 record, "There's A Last Time For Everything," made on me. A year later I can tell you exactly where I was when I first popped it into the CD player and sat transfixed, unable to move. Lucy Wainwright Roche comes to Milwaukee next week, and we talked to her about it.

Kinks' Dave Davies' Turner Hall gig offers nothing to complain about

Published Nov. 12, 2014

Lester Bangs' "James Taylor Marked for Death" is no doubt popular reading this week in Milwaukee after the singer-songwriter disparaged his recent Brew City audience for its supposedly "wooden" response. It's highly unlikely Milwaukee will have to deal with any post-show digs from fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dave Davies, who delighted an appreciative crowd Tuesday night at Turner Hall.

A conversation with The Moody Blues' Justin Hayward

Published Nov. 10, 2014

One of Justin Hayward's earliest memories of being in America with The Moody Blues comes courtesy of the Midwest. Unsurprisingly, it's a chilly one. Over 40 years later, he returns to town for a show on Sunday, Nov. 16. Unfortunately, it hasn't gotten much warmer. One thing is different this time around, though: Hayward arrives in Milwaukee by himself, taking the chance in between tours with The Moody Blues to do a special acoustic tour.

Hayes brings country to the BMO Harris Bradley Center

Published Nov. 1, 2014

If country music is evolving, it is clear that men are leading it, and two of the youngsters just about at the head of the pack are Scotty McCreery and Hunter Hayes. McCreery, 21, played at Summerfest this past summer while Hayes, 23, is coming to the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Thursday, Nov. 13 for a show that is expected to be a sellout.

Dylan Ryan/Sand kicks off "Circa" tour here

Published Oct. 29, 2014

You may know drummer Dylan Ryan more for his work with Cursive, Icy Demons and Chicago's Herculaneum -- he's also in an L.A. electro band called Rainbow Arabia these days -- but he's also got his own outfit called Dylan Ryan/Sand, which just released its second record and has hit the road. The first stop? Sugar Maple in Bay View.

Published Oct. 28, 2014

Because it sold out so quickly the Sleater-Kinney performance on Sunday, Feb. 15 has been moved from Turner Hall to the Riverside Theater. Tickets go on sale today.
