While the changing economy one by one picks off Milwaukee’s best independent stores like teens in a slasher flick, patrons of Milwaukee’s Broad Vocabulary aren’t letting the shop go down without a fight. They’re trying to reinvent the city’s only feminist bookstore as a co-op, but first they’ll need funds. They’ll try to fill the coffers tonight with a benefit event at Frank’s Power Plant featuring a raffle, a potluck and music from Plexi 3 and International Date Lines (two garage-pop bands with a shared love for flirty, retro harmonies) as well as Uh- Oh, Pigs On Ice and Exotic Matter.

Poll

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?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
