Lisa Gatewood/Joanne Riedel/Jeannie Mayotte @ Stonefly, 10 p.m.
(735 E. Center Street)
Lisa Gatewood has been wowing Milwaukee with her beautiful voice, and deftly-arranged, guitar-centric songs, showcased perfectly in her latest release, I’ve Read Salinger. The pal of Heidi Spencer will perform along with local folk craftswomen, Joanne Riedel and Jeannie Mayotte. Check out a recent interview of the young and talented Gatewood, *here*.

Friday, September 5th
Black Keys @ Turner Hall Ballroom, 8 p.m.
(1034 N. 4th Street)

We probably don’t even have to tell you, the intelligent reader, that The Black Keys are a really great band. And, we probably don’t have to throw out there, that their new album Attack & Release is a solid piece of work. Are we fools by mentioning that they’re playing Turner Hall Ballroom on Friday? Perhaps. If you’re a fan, you already know. If this YouTube video is your first encounter, and you’re having a mild freakout, our guess is that you’re glad we’re complete idiots for doubting your possibility of hearing this dynamic duo. Go.
