NEW BLOG: An introduction to ‘Rock On’

By Mike Thiel / Fox Cities Hub staff writer


Things are about to change. I’ve been giving you the goods on weekend entertainment in the Fox Valley for a good 2+ years now and I’m always thinking of ways to get you the info that you want.

I’ve kept you up to speed on Fox Valley entertainment from theater shows to hockey games for a long time, but now, I’m dedicating this blog – “Rock On” – strictly to music. Wonder where your favorite local band is playing a bar gig this weekend? Or if any touring music acts are hitting the Resch Center? Well, this is your new spot.

While I was out at the bars this past year, I had countless people tell me that they never know what bands are playing where and they have to go to every bar or venue’s website to find out who’s gigging that night. So let me do the work.

Every Wednesday, I’ll post a list of where local bands are playing in the Fox Cities (that’s Appleton and surrounding areas) and a list of any national acts or major music festivals coming to the Fox Valley (Appleton, Green Bay Oshkosh).

I’ll also post tidbits about the local music scene, whether a band gets a new drummer, tickets go on sale for an event or your favorite local group is breaking up (well, let’s not hope for that). So join in the conversation and help make this a community music blog.

Still want to catch more than just music? You can still get the broad spectrum of Fox Valley entertainment options in my “Up All Night” video on every Friday. Instead of just gigs, “Up All Night” will fill you in on events at the Fox Cities PAC, the Weidner Center, etc.

Thanks for reading. Rock on.
