Is it stealing if you empty a Little Free Library?

…I saw a photo on Facebook (used as the main photo in this blog) of another LFL on the Riverwalk allegedly being emptied by a couple with a garbage bag. This weekend, I saw two more empty Little Free Libraries and another with a sign asking people not to take all the books…

One night with Paris: Inside Hilton’s not so hot Summerfest DJ set

Give Paris Hilton this: After years of being accused of being famous for doing nothing, the hotel heiress, reality star and tabloid fixture is now indeed doing something, forging a career as a EDM DJ – one of the self-proclaimed highest paid ones at that.

Unfortunately, much like the “Transformers” movies, DJ Paris Hilton’s Summerfest set was one of those situations where the amount of the money involved was inversely proportionate to the amount of talent and skill on display. Also much like the “Transformers” movies, it was loud, clunky, sporadically dull despite all of the noise, unnecessarily lengthy and, by the end, left me in a little bit of pain.

So yes, consider my expectations exceeded…

Timothy J. Reynolds’ journey to Twitch

“…The 9-to-5 job was never for me. If creativity doesn’t strike, you can’t just turn it on. The art director is tapping you on the shoulder. ‘F*ck you, man, it doesn’t work that way,’” Reynolds laughed. “Open offices were a disaster for me. The minute someone comes and taps you on the shoulder, you’re f*cked. I can’t get back into that spot for another hour. It’s so hard to get that focus back. Cubicles aren’t much better, but at least they isolate you from all that noise. The burst of productivity came with headphones on, that’s how it works for me.”

To keep his creativity alive and churning, Reynolds would come home from work … and just continue to work some more – this time, however, on his own projects and his own style. The result was 80-hour work weeks, spending about 50 hours at the agency and 30 hours tinkering and crafting at home.

“I didn’t know what I was doing, just trying to push myself,” Reynolds said. “I didn’t realize I was trying to push myself out of that job…

Bastille battles nobly through a bummer of a bad throat

…The set was much like one of the “Grindhouse” movies showcased on Smith’s shirt: grainy, rough and all scratchy, but still solidly entertaining through it all.

Bastille quickly fired up into the chipper little hit “Laura Palmer,” fueled by some nice harmonies and a few pounds on some on-stage drums that reflected the band’s diploma from the Top 40 Earworm School of Beating The Everloving Hell Out Of A Snare (fellow recent alumni namely include Imagine Dragons), as well as the almost reggae jam band influenced “Hangin’” – a new song coming out on the band’s upcoming sophomore album…

Gogol Bordello packs punky passion into its safe Summerfest setting

…As I sat down to watch the Balkun Brothers open, I couldn’t help but think that the Gogol Bordello concert tonight brings into odd contrast the punk scene in Milwaukee. Against the backdrop of the BMO Harris Stage, with the stage flanked by large fluorescent signs reading “BMO Harris Bank”, there was something decidedly not punk about the Summerfest atmosphere.

I have mostly seen jam bands, oldies, hard rock or indie bands at Summerfest. But Gogol Bordello is built on a distinctly gypsy punk platform. It gives off the vibe of transients stopping in just for the fun of playing a show. Their message is raunchy yet honest and poetic. The band is draws heavily from immigrant musicians: current and former members from across the former U.S.S.R., Ethiopia and Ecuador to name a few countries. All this leads to the basis of their music. “Immigrant Punk” is the name of one of their songs; that has to suggest some deep familiarity with both the immigrant experience and punk culture, right?

But Summerfest just doesn’t really seem like a solidly punk venue, and the question that kept gnawing at the back of my mind was this: Could Gogol Bordello really overcome this high-budget stage with blue plastic chairs and bleachers to sit in…?

Summerfest’s newest drunk eat

After decades of attending the Big Gig, I’ve eaten a gluttonous number of Saz’s mozzarella sticks along with a crap-ton of other classic Summerfest food items. However, in the past few years, I’ve attempted to expand my festival food horizons.

Today I picked SoLo’s new, gluten-free, “bacon bottom” pizza…

Sheryl Crow’s old hits soak up the Summerfest support

…For their part, Crow and her band also gave their most enthusiastic performances on the hits that made her a star. They only played three songs off “Feels Like Home,” and during them the band seemed to be going through the motions. But as they moved into familiar favorites like “Can’t Cry Anymore,” the crowd got on their feet and swayed along. Each time they returned to the new songs, you could feel the energy draining away as the audience resumed their seats…
