Lydia Loveless gives us the not-so- typical coffee shop show

A common question comes up for music lovers; Where would your dream concert be? Most say huge venues like Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall or Red Rocks. What they should say instead is a coffee shop, specifically Milwaukee’s Prospect Ave. Colectivo Coffee. This place is something everyone should take on at some point in their life, because seeing

REVIEW: Elle King at Summerfest

  Frankly, Elle King’s set at the Harley-Davidson Roadhouse on Friday night was a bit of a wild card going into the night. On paper, King has two successful radio singles; the recently released “America’s Sweetheart”, and the singalong-worthy hit “Ex’s and Oh’s”. What she delivered, however, was the performance of a star way beyond an artist with only two

AUDIO: Jerry Lee Lewis – “Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown”

I always have a weird obsession with lost or hidden recordings, and this one is a fun one for sure. While we all have probably heard Jim Croce’s version of this song, Jerry Lee Lewis covered the song at some point in the late 70s. In what sounds like it definitely would end up as a throwaway record, it’s now
