Young delivers a bit of unexpected magic on the final night of Summerfest

Published July 6, 2015

In 2003, Neil Young played the Amp touring his then-new album "Greendale." The socio-political rock opera went over like a lead zeppelin with fans expecting to hear Young's big hits.

A Brady Street Festival Frenzy

I had never been to the Brady Street Fest, but after last Saturday's bash on Brady, I'll never miss another one. Down the city's most hip and diverse street in all of the land, the scene looked more like a brochure of "Visit New Orleans" than Milwaukee on Saturday. There was a sk...

How I spent opening day in the kids' area (and survived)

When I was younger, I didn't spend a lot of time at Summerfest. Or rather - I didn't spend a lot of time in the kids' area. By the time I started going to Summerfest, it was mostly to drag a very harassed parent to a stage for a band that I had to see. Unfortunately for me, the kids' area was s...
