Any musician who’s ever toured long enough understands what a pain it is to have your gear stolen, so it’s no wonder that so many local musicians have rallied to support local vet Bob Jennings—a multi-instrumentalist for baPaul Cebar and The Milwaukeeans, Semi-Twang and Blue in the Facends like —after many of his instruments were recently ripped off. Semi-Twang and Blue in the Face will be on tonight’s bill, along with The Subcontinentals, The Lackloves and Tom Schwark’s Trio du Monde. Many of those bands don’t gig much these days, so this is a rare chance to see some of Milwaukee’s deep-rooted alternative and alt-country acts.


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...
