The 28th annual Wisconsin Area Music Industry awards ceremony happened over the weekend, and a whole lot of people walked home with prizes in tow. Among them? Shepherd Express (who posted the complete list of winners here) for “Print Media”; 88.9 Radio Milwaukee for “Best Radio Station”; and a whole slew of great bands, including Fever Marlene and .357 String Band (one of Fan-Belt writer Milan Zori’s personal favorites).

And to see who’s playing this week, click here and scroll down beneath the “Local Live” banner.
