Largely due to troubles booking a headliner for the date, Brandi Carlile opened for The Avett Brothers at Summerfest this year to an unimaginably sparse Marcus Amphitheater crowd. Make it up to her when she takes the Pabst Theater stage on her own terms. Carlile’s here supporting her latest album, The Firewatcher’s Daughter, an energetic, sprawling Americana album that cements her reputation as one of the better folk artists recording today.
At the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee. Tickest are $40 and can be purchased at pabsttheater.org.
