Milwaukee Bucks Squad 6 Auditions TOMORROW!

Milwaukee Bucks Squad 6

I’ve kept up with some of the Milwaukee Bucks players through twitter during the offseason and boy let me tell you – 2010/2011 is gonna be a great season for Bucks basketball! With a rebuilt roster, a raring-to-go Brandon Jennings and a healthy Andrew Bogut, I cannot see anything but greatness in the coming months for the team. To get things off to a great start, Squad 6 auditions will be held tomorrow night (September 30). Last year, Bogut purchased 100 tickets for the cheering section under the conditions that the fans were as pumped up as possible in support of the team during games. The great vibes Squad 6 sent out to the Milwaukee Bucks last season brought the team to their first playoff appearance in 4 years and the 2009/2010 season ended with a 28-13 home recorcd. Squad 6 have also been dubbed the rowdiest cheering section in the NBA and have even received complains from other Bucks fans that the group were too loud. My thoughts are forget that, Squad 6! Keep rockin! In the words of the great Andrew W.K., PARTY HARD!

Fall Sports - Milwaukee Admirals Hockey Is Coming Up Soon!

Fall is here and I cannot wait for the cooler-weather sports to begin. One season I am particularly looking forward to starting is hockey. Hometown team the Milwaukee Admirals will be starting up their season with a home opener on October 9 against the Abbotsford Heat. This will be a great kick off to the season because it’s a Friday night game and what hockey fan DOESN’T like to get rowdy on the weekends? Throughout the season there will be some cool promotions, such as monthly autograph signings and some family skates after games. The event I am looking forward to the most though is when The Village People come in December! I can’t wait to see some hockey AND some legendary disco, all in one place!

Top Three Shows I Am Looking Forward To This Fall In Milwaukee

Milwaukee Wisconsin concerts in fall
This fall, things are looking good for catching great music in Milwaukee. Here are my top three shows I am looking forward to in the coming cooler months.

3. GAYNGS at Turner Hall Ballroom, September 29
The 23 member super group full of Midwestern musicians will be making their debut in Milwaukee this month and I CANNOT wait. The indie outfit boasts some big names, including Dessa from Doomtree, multiple members of Solid Gold and most notably, both Justin Vernon Mike Noyce from Bon Iver. Their album Relayted was released in May of this year was put out by label Jagjaguwar and received mostly positive reviews. This should be an interesting chance to check out the dynamics of the super group in a live setting.

2. Farm Aid at Miller Park, October 2
Farm Aid is by far the largest music event of the season, being a day-long show with over a dozen acts, making it a show with something for everyone. Co-founders Willie Nelson and John Cougar Mellencamp will be playing along with performances from Dave Matthews, Jeff Tweedy from Wilco and The Bodeans among others. I think this is a great event that is putting many great bands in one place for fans at a reasonable price while promoting awareness and funding for family farms.

1. LCD Soundsystem at The Rave, October 22
This is, by far, my most anticipated show this fall. After listening nonstop to This Is Happening since its release in May, LCD Soundsystem have been on heavy rotation all summer. I saw them down at Chicago’s Pitchfork festival and James Murphy and band put on an incredibly powerful and of course danceable show. Another major selling point is that this will be the last chance for Milwaukeeans to catch LCD Soundsystem live – the band have announced that this will be their last tour.
