Sarah Martini is closing in on the end of her term as "Rock Girl," an annual promotion/contest that 102.9 FM "The Hog" promotes heavily on its station and at area events.
Casting calls for the new Rock Girl begin April 23 from 8-10 p.m. at Whiskey Bar, and run through May 6. Then, fans can vote through the station's Web site or through Time Warner Cable On Demand. In June, it gets serious, with finalist events leading up to the crowning of a new Rock Girl on June 25.
So, with "Rock Girl Sarah" starting to wrap up her term, we asked her five quick-hitting questions about her year as a local celebrity.
OnMilwaukee.com: When does your term end, and what was it like?
Sarah Martini: It ends on Saturday, June 25. It was really awesome. I have met tons and tons of people. I've gotten to do a lot of fun promotions, concerts, Summerfest and State Fair shows. It's been really cool.
OMC: Would you say it's changed your life?
SM: Yes, it's definitely got me to be more outgoing. I'm a lot more fun than I usually am.
OMC: Was this the first time you've done anything like this? Have you done any promotional or modeling work before?
SM: I'm around people all the time, so I know how to handle myself around large groups of people. I've done pageants and stuff before.
OMC: Do you have any advice for women who want to be the next Rock Girl?
SM: Definitely come out of your shell and be as outgoing and fun as possible. Don't be intimated by anyone.
OMC: What's next for you after your term is over?
SM: I'm going to take a little time off. I do have a modeling agency that I've come in contact with through the radio station. We'll see where that leads to.
OMC: I'm supposed to ask you whether blondes have more fun ...
SM: It's going pretty well so far ... we're getting there. But yes, I definitely understand why they say that. It's very true.

If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then sometimes it's best to let them just speak for themselves. Here are eight photos I took that made me look twice during Summerfest's 2017 run.

Rereading my review from 2009, I see that Lewis' set list hasn't changed much in the last seven years ... and why would it? The order has flipped: he opened with "The Heart of Rock & Roll" this time instead off closing with it. But this very tight band, which has been performing in almost the same incarnation since 1979, played hit after `80s hit.

Up until just two years ago, Summerfest offered something very unique at a few of the beer stands on the grounds. If you looked hard enough, you could find special red and white wine coolers, with the closely-guarded secret ingredients, that were made just for the Big Gig.

Nineteen Thirteen is high art, a pairing of two unlikely instruments and a style that is totally its own. This is a group that sounds at home at the Jazz Estate or Linneman's, but eclectically and wonderfully out-of-place on the BMO Stage. But also not.

Original founders Anthony Kiedis and Flea, buffeted by longtime drummer and Will Ferrell doppelgĂ¤nger Chad Smith, plus former touring guitarist Josh Kinghoffer, looked like the crazy, ripped, tattooed, formerly drunk uncles you always wish you had (or at least I wish I had). And they put on one of the best Summerfest shows I've ever seen.

In an industry where positioning a brand as retro vintage is suddenly new and trendy, Milwaukee's Lucky Tiger doesn't even need to even try. Trademarked in Kansas City in 1935, the iconic men's brand actually stretches back to a barber shop from the 1920s, when it was a very large line of tonics and hair products.

Such an unlikely pairing. The blue-eyed soul of Hall & Oates, or the Brit pop of Tears For Fears? Who was better Saturday night at the Bradley Center? Depends who you're asking.

Milwaukee artist Ava Herrider is an animal lover, but it took her a few career changes to settle upon pet portraiture as her full-time job. Last year, she decided to do what moves her: "paint things people love," as she says. In other words, their pets.
