Donovan: The Sunshine Superman 50th Anniversary Tour

After a breakthrough and historic period of hit recordings, Donovan remains a towering icon of rock's golden age. He played with and influenced generations of music's greats while releasing a canon of music that changed the world. There are dozens more, but his best loved songs include "Catch The Wind," "Sunshine Superman," "Season of the Witch," "Lalena," "Hurdy Gurdy Man," "Atlantis," "Wear Your Love Like Heaven," "Epistle to Dippy," "There Is A Mountain," "Jennifer Juniper," "Barabajagal," "To Susan on the West Coast Waiting," and "Happiness Runs." Donovan met and traded songs with Bob Dylan during Dylan's 1965 U.K. tour and was a friend of, and an influence on the Beatles. For a time, his sidemen were John Paul Jones and Jimmy Page (with John Bonham occasionally coming by), a pairing that would lead to great things, to say the least. Pabst Theater 144 E Wells St, Milwaukee, WI 53202 (414) 286-3205 Tickets: $49.50, $69.50, $79.50

Is Faith Rooted in Fiction? The Mythinformation Conference showcases the many different formats there are to engage in the secular community. From deep academic dives into science, philosophy and history, to religious debates, to comedic and musical acts, to feature films and documentaries - everyone is sure to find something they enjoy in this full-day conference. This year's conference features social influencers from popular YouTube and podcasts shows and secular activists, another Buzzed Belief debate and the premiere of feature film "Batman & Jesus."

Our debaters include heavy-hitter on the topic of Islamic reform, Asra Nomani, and secular Iraqi-born human rights activist Faisal Saeed Al-Mutar.
