Sigh … Michael Bolton. My mom and her friend wanted to see him at Summerfest. I was too young and too naïve to realize the Skyglider ride I received in exchange wasn’t worth having to answer this question in this manner for the rest of my life.
Ben Folds at the Rave, I think it was 2002. Just him and a piano, but when you have an insanely devoted following, you can have them sing horn parts and harmonies and provide just the best audience participation ever.
Favorite band/artist of all time:
Spoon. Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem are a close second.
Favorite place to take a visitor in Milwaukee:
Central Waters’ Tap Room. It successfully combines the two necessary ingredients for a space like this: really good beer and a location built for a wildly different purpose than being a tap room.
What about you would surprise people:
I invented a drink. Captain Morgan + orange soda = Captain Creamsicle. Happened in the early 2000s at a house party, so I have witnesses. A cursory internet search revealed slight variations that also use orange juice. Unnecessary.

The singer-songwriter delivered an expressive, emotional and just plain excellent session during her visit to our Walker's Point studios.
The annual event has a ton of entertainment lined up for its 35th installment, from national recording artists to DJs and aerial displays to drag shows.
The festival's additions for this year include two beverage areas, five food vendors and a whole bunch of gear to help you celebrate the Big Gig's anniversary.
The power-pop quartet's Steven Baird should've been doing something else but wound up writing "Check Engine Light," which premieres right here.
