In case you didn't hear, the re-opening of the Cactus Club was postponed a week to Saturday, Aug. 18, with the Decibully / Kid, You'll Move Mountains show on hold until further notice. Don't worry, we'll keep you posted.

That being said, The Suicide Dolls, The New Loud  and Now & Never Again were previously scheduled to play at the Cactus this Thursday, Aug. 16, but in light of the construction delays, the show is now happening at Puddler's Hall, 2463 S. St. Clair. You can read OMC's interview with Now & Never again here.

FSFI, or Frank Says "F" It, is a pop punk bands that likes nothing short of a rambunctiously good time. You can catch these Milwaukee music vets this Saturday, Aug. 17 at Linneman's Riverwest Inn with The Mandates and Floor Model. Never heard 'em? Take a listen to "So Called Friends."

As I mentioned, opening night at the Cactus Club is gonna be big. Lights Out Asia is hosting its CD release party with special guests Brief Candles  -- who you can hear playing "So Long" on this podcast -- Strangest Places and Weaver at the Loom.

Frank's Power Plant in Bay View has been booking more and more good shows lately and this Saturday night is proof. New York's Cause Co-Motion takes the stage with Chicago's Limelights and Bold Ones and Milwaukee's The Chain and Mechanics of Romance.

Julie Lawrence Special to staff writer Julie Lawrence grew up in Wauwatosa and has lived her whole life in the Milwaukee area.

As any “word nerd” can attest, you never know when inspiration will strike, so from a very early age Julie has rarely been seen sans pen and little notebook. At the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee it seemed only natural that she major in journalism. When offered her an avenue to combine her writing and the city she knows and loves in late 2004, she knew it was meant to be. Around the office, she answers to a plethora of nicknames, including “Lar,” (short for “Larry,” which is short for “Lawrence”) as well as the mysteriously-sourced “Bill Murray.”
