Just Announced: Muse and Passion Pit at the Bradley Center

Though I’m sure you all have your hearts set on the weather warming up and not cooling down, one thing to look forward to this fall has just been announced at the Bradley Center. British rockers Muse will be making an appearance in Milwaukee with special guest Passion Pit. The show is scheduled for October 6th at the largest venue in the city. Fans of Passion Pit will be excited to see them back so soon after their first show which was sold out at the Riverside Theater. The choice of opener does seem a little odd, as Passion Pit are more of a synth based dreamy pop outfit while Muse offer a more grandiose progressive rock sound, blending elements of heavy metal, classical music and electronica. Despite the differences, I am excited for this hot ticket Bradley Center show and hopefully the fall will continue to have such a great lineup!

The Milwaukee Bucks will be doing their city proud with their appearance in the NBA playoffs coming up at the end of April. The games will be played in Milwaukee at the Bradley Center, starting April 24 playing against the Atlanta Hawks. The popular fan-created slogan “fear the deer” has been very fitting with the way this season fished, the Bucks winning 46 of their 82 games. Despite the loss of star starter Andrew Bogut, fans are excited to see how the team progresses through the playoffs. I can’t wait to get my Milwaukee Bucks NBA playoff tickets soon!

Musical Milwaukee - Recap on Shows Last Weekend

It was a busy weekend in Milwaukee with some big shows at not one but all Pabst family venues. Friday night kicked off the weekend with some excellent weather and a sold out show at Turner Hall featuring an experimental DJ set from Bassnectar and was opened by a local DJ act, Direwolf. The night was full of great beats and a high energy crowd that danced with zest all night.

Just a few blocks away, queen of quirk Joanna Newsom played at the Pabst Theater with Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes as the warm up act. Though the show posed some technical difficulties with Newson’s difficult-to-tune harp and struggling vocal cords, the show was overall very well received. She is currently touring to promote her new album, Have One On Me which came out in February.

The music continued with some great shows on Saturday night as well. The Pabst had one of their ten buck shows, featuring indie dream-pop outfit Beach House. The Pabst theaters offer this deal for many different shows, allowing Milwaukeeans to hear some new music at a great price.

After selling out Turner Hall about a month prior to the show, Passion Pit played at the Riverside on Saturday night, where they played to a sold out theater. The young group have an electro-pop sound that is perfectly attuned for dancing the night away. The show was not one of the best I have ever been to, with a bit of the synth and drum loops being lost in translation during the live show, the crowd was predominantly pleased with the performance.
