All these years, Red Hot Chili Peppers still rockin’

Time really does fly when you spend the years rockin’ out and having fun with friends. It’s been awhile since 1983, the start of one of the increasingly iconic alternative-funk-rock bands of our time. Literally everyone knows of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and much of the pure joy and energy that has arisen from […]

Halloween with The Wallflowers

Just as quickly as their hiatus started, front man Jakob Dylan announced The Wallflowers would be returning for a new album and naturally another tour. But would this be the same band we had heard through the 90’s? Sure, some of the original members returned for another go round with Dylan, but taking a break has a […]

Wiz Khalifa smokes The Eagles Ballroom

Wiz Khalifa’s highly energetic 2050 tour rolled through Milwaukee over the Halloween weekend.

10 Years rock on despite Milwaukee crowd

Phil Vassar back in Milwaukee

Milwaukee has become somewhat of a second home to country musician Phil Vassar.

And those special fans have returned to Phil time after time, fueling this very cozy […]

Rock The Green returns for a greener, brighter second year

Rock the Green, the now annual fall green music festival, showed it was doing its part to help progress the idea of near-zero waste lifestyle practices for a second consecutive year. The near-zero waste music festival had a slow and gloomy start in 2011, but its second year has proven to be the charm.

August Burns Red fires up The Rave

The beginning of fall has marked the end to all the exciting summer festivals and sweaty concerts in the Midwest area. Now we have to rely on indoor and tightly packed shows at historic venues downtown to tie us over until next year. This isn’t a bad thing though, as fall usually serves up some […]

F V V L S E – Vonny Del Fresco

Sadly, there’s not a lot of quality talent in the Milwaukee area; well at least none that make an effort to push the bar and stand out. Sure Milwaukee has its fair share of bands that make decent music, but not many who go the distance and have that wow factor. A few years ago […]
