Before then, however, OnMilwaukee.com got a chance to chat with Thatcher about the band's origins, its inspirations and the all-too-deservedly forgotten '90s band Aqua.

Country Thunder takes place on 240 acres of rural farmland in Twin Lakes (near the Illinois border and close to Lake Geneva).

A chat with chamber blues creator Corky Siegel

Published July 19, 2014

All musicians create new music. Even the most derivative Top 40 hit features a new combination of notes and lyrics. Very few, however, can claim to have come up with a whole new genre of sound. Chicago blues extraordinaire Corky Siegel is one of those few.

Fall Out Boy and Paramore put on a pop punk powerhouse show

Published July 6, 2014

If you happen to be a Fall Out Boy hater, an early six-word proclamation from Pete Wentz was likely more chilling than a tornado siren. Then again, if you happen to be a Fall Out Boy hater, you were also likely nowhere near the Marcus Amphitheater Saturday night, where the pop/punk rockers teamed up with Paramore. It's too bad because the duo put on quite the show, a nearly four-hour burst of music that left the crowd happily exhausted.

There's one thing they might not be expecting however: Clay Steininger, the group's guitar-slinging "gringo."

According to them, the problem lies in people's limited definition of pop music, not the actual genre itself.
