Avett Brothers Summerfest 2015

The Avett Brothers are on their way to Summerfest Milwaukee. The band will perform on July 4, with Brani Carlile. This is the last headline show to be booked, and it came very late. The wait was pretty good for Avett fans. Tickets are on sale now.

The Avett Brothers tour has a few gaps between shows, and it seems that they are choosing to spend a good part of the summer opening for musical acts like the Rolling Stones, John Prine, and the Old Crow Medicine Show. The last time that they performed at Summerfest was with the Violent Femmes. Will the band fill the massive amphitheater? We don't think so. But still, it will be a great time.

NFL Minor League Teams | Ticket King Green Bay

NFL minor league teams
This week, rather than try to predict someone's roster or who will get cut, we thought we would do something a little different, and very fun. There has been a lot of talk about the NFL developing its own minor league system over the years. This isn't our opinions on the matter. Rather, this is a list of how we would name each team, and where they would play, if we got to name them. Some of these are kind puns, but if you are going to do something, do it right. Sometimes puns are the best option.
