The adventure continues for folk band Lord Huron

Published April 23, 2015

Lord Huron doesn't quite trek to the stars like it said it might on its new album "Strange Trails," but the folk band is still going places. Its dreamy musical vistas have nabbed a big audience -- so much so that demand moved the band's return to The Pabst Theater on Saturday, April 25 over to the Riverside. Before then, I got a chance to chat with frontman Ben Schneider about "Strange Trails," the stories that come with it and going to space (at some point).


"A Million Ways to Die in the West" is pretty deadly in its own right

Published May 30, 2014

The imagination and creativity implied by the title "A Million Ways to Die in the West" doesn't extend far enough to come up with more than a handful of ways to make an audience laugh. Unfortunately, Seth MacFarlane's latest is less "Blazing Saddles" and more "Your Highness."

Apparently the Sussex bowling alley doubles as the Square Benders Square Dancing headquarters at least once a week. Occasionally, the Milwaukee Ale House hosts live country acts and Kelly's Bleachers on Bluemound Road has been known to play as much pop country as top 40 music on the dance floor.

Army Hammer?) joins his badass, gun-slinging brother in a posse to take down the notorious and vile...

Rev. Ron reviews "Django Unchained"

I'm a fan of Quentin Tarantino. Sure the guy is an insufferable ego maniac but when you have the talent to back up the enormous ego, I think you're allowed to be a little full of yourself. Let's face it, the guy is an artist. The man blends dialogue, music, editing, story, plot and amazing camera...


It's been some time since I've watched Tombstone so I decided to revisit...only after I decided I need to watch a Western that contains Kurt Russell with an epic mustache that pretty much puts Tom Selleck's to shame.  And with requirements like that, my options are kinda limited.  How d...

Award Season Reviews: True Grit

The end of the year has truly bombarded avid filmgoers with a bevy of Oscar-caliber films. This has come as quite a treat considering the first 75% of the year wasn't exactly worth writing home about. I had almost forgotten that I'd dubbed 2010 as the year of disappointments; that is, until I...
