Summerfest is already more than halfway over. We may be getting tired, but the lineup is still strong. Seems like the festival has even saved some of the best acts for last.
Each Thursday morning on Radio Milwaukee, the Journal Sentinel’s Piet Levy and 88Nine’s Jordan Lee talk about the music coming into Milwaukee and the music coming out of Milwaukee on Tap’d In.
Summerfest time is precious. Pick your concerts wisely. We did. Here’s who we’ll be seeing before The Big Gig 2018 is over.
