Milwaukee's noise scene remains one of its most marginalized—try booking a noise show at most clubs or bars and see what kind of response you get from the owner—but once a year it gets its due at the annual Milwaukee Noise Fest. Now in its seventh year, the three-day bill at the all-ages Borg Ward will feature ambient-, drone- and feedback-based acts from all over the country, as well as nearly every major player from Milwaukee's tightknit noise community, including Steve Nelson-Raney, Chris Burns and Amanda Schoofs, performing as a trio, and percussion innovator Jon Mueller. Festival curator Peter J. Woods will perform a Samuel Beckett-inspired set with his An Extremely Loud Silence project. Visit this page for the complete schedule. (Through Saturday, Aug. 25.)


The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
