See Rufus Wainwright's Milwaukee At Last! for free at Turner Hall tonight
The locally filmed DVD includes shout-outs to the venue's staff
Rufus Wainwright not only chose the Pabst Theater as the setting for his new CD/DVD, Milwaukee At Last! he apparently holds the downtown venue’s staff in high esteem. In the liner notes he thanks a number of Pabst employees, and gives “a very special thank you” to executive director Gary Witt, adding “we are all so happy and relieved that your son, Alex, made it home safely" from a tour of duty in Iraq. If you haven’t picked up Milwaukee At Last! (or you simply want to re-live the experience of seeing Wainwright live), there’s a free screening tonight at Turner Hall. Here’s a clip.
