Talking romance and real music with Rhye's Michael Milosh

Published Oct. 21, 2014

In early 2012, music fans found themselves entranced by two hypnotically romantic pop songs cryptically released onto YouTube. The songs were gorgeous, a dreamy high voice with just a touch of smokiness crooning intimate lyrics over seductively simple electronic arrangements. Everyone just wanted to know who was responsible. It was an impressive little indie music mystery ... especially since it was essentially an accident.

Pearl Jam returned to Milwaukee after nearly two decades, and it made connections to the Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Bucks, dedicating songs to Aaron Rodgers and Bobby Dandridge and sporting jerseys. Members of the current Packers were in attendance, too, and Matt Flynn got the experience of a lifetime.

Notaro turns personal crisis into comedy legend

Published Oct. 20, 2014

In 2012, comedian Tig Notaro went through a series of intense, significant personal crises that would be overwhelming in a four-year stretch, much less in merely four months. In a matter of a few months, Notaro faced a break-up, a sudden death in the family and two potentially fatal ailments. And in the middle of all of that, she had a stand-up gig at Largo in Los Angeles. The rest, as the cliché says, is history.

Alverno Presents "Smith Uncovered" plugs into a punk legend

Published Oct. 16, 2014

A little over a decade ago, Milwaukee musician and Testa Rosa lead vocalist Betty Blexrud-Strigens got a chance to see the legendary Patti Smith in Madison. Even though the show came quite some time after Smith's punk glory years, Blexrud-Strigens still remembers the rock legend providing a charge. Now, it's up to Blexrud-Strigens and a roster of Milwaukee artists and musicians to bring that essence back to the stage with "Smith Uncovered."

And, of course, hockey.

Adams delivers an energetic and honest performance

Published Oct. 15, 2014

Ryan Adams performed an extraordinarily solid and heartfelt show tonight. Known as eccentric and erratic - in both good and not so good ways - the prolific North Carolinian continues to serve up a hearty slice of the very best in roots, folk, rock and Americana. But the beauty and the curse of Adams is you never know what you're going to get.

Blues takes center stage to honor harp king Liban's 50th anniversary

Published Oct. 13, 2014

Liban has had quite a 50 years. He's been up and down and up and down and up. He's faced substance abuse, charlatan promoters, empty promises, dark and dingy clubs, big stages, European tours, the death of a loved one, some racial uncertainties and eventually his present state of comfort. If that sounds like a blues song, it's because his life has been like a great tune.

Published Oct. 10, 2014

Few bands have come out of the gates as strongly as Milwaukee's own Field Report. So it's safe to say the bar was set high for Field Report's eventual sophomore attempt, one nicely cleared by "Marigolden," released Tuesday, Oct. 7.
