Gigantour battles tough crowd in Chicago

With the plethora of tours and massive festivals this summer, there’s little shortage of musical entertainment.

Skillet brings Billboard No. 4 album to Milwaukee

If it’s one thing I hear the most about a Skillet show at Summerfest, it’s “are they bringing the pyro?” The Tennessee rock natives known for their dynamic rock anthems and blistering choruses are no new act to Wisconsin, or even Summerfest. This marks their second consecutive year.

The Sun Comes Out Tonight – Filter

Filter has proven to be one of those bands that never goes away.  No matter the severity of the negativity coming from the journalistic and Internet troll peanut gallery, Richard Patrick and his industrial rock powerhouse keep on with their business and hit one out of the park with The Sun Comes Out Tonight. Some would […]

The Hurry and The Harm – City and Colour

The Hurry and The Harm marks a milestone for Dallas Green and his highly successful “solo” project, City and Colour.
