It's been a big week for guy-guy goofball pop duos with varying ties to Milwaukee: Chester French swept through town again with the Blink-182 tour on Tuesday, and I just got word that the other Milwaukee-ish, France-christened, MGMT-coattailing duo French Horn Rebellion are playing a free show at Moct tomorrow.

The superficial similarities between the two duos were enough for MTVu to set up a poll pitting the groups against each other, and though it would seem an uneven match-up, with Chester French's deep-pocketed, Neptunes-supported single "She Loves Everybody" and its gorgeous (albeit terminally stupid) music video the Goliath to French Horn Rebellion's chinsy synths and no-budget video, the underdogs have made a strong showing with 81% of the vote. The result of ballot stuffing? Probably. But still, it's nice exposure for the band.

French Horn Rebellion will split their 10 p.m. bill at Moct with openers Jude Raw and Bounce the DJ.

Poll

The new owners of the Shops of Grand Avenue have revealed a radical redesign for the mall, which will include a proposed grocery store, an urban marketplace and contemporary office spaces, as well as the potential for a new name. Will the new owners succeed where past owners have failed in turning Grand Avenue around?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
