The Pabst Theater is an indoor concert venue and landmark of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, U.S. Colloquially known as "the Pabst", the theater hosts about 100 events per year. It is the fourth-oldest continuously operating theater in the United States, and has presented such notables as pianist Sergei Rachmaninoff, actor Laurence Olivier, and ballerina Anna Pavlova, as well as the majority of current big-name musical acts.
The Pabst is known for its opulence as well as its role in German-American culture in Milwaukee. It is officially designated a City of Milwaukee Landmark and a State of Wisconsin Historical Site, and was also designated a National Historic Landmark in 1991.  It is sometimes called the "Grande Olde Lady", being the oldest theater in Milwaukee's theater district.
De-constructionists, experimentlists and pure genius songwriting at the helm of ‘musical director’ David Longstreth. With collaborators like Bjork & David Byrne, it’s no wonder why Dirty Projectors are one of indie rock’s latest success stories.
The Brooklyn-based experimental rock group Dirty Projectors is the brainchild of frontman and chief songwriter Dave Longstreth, who released his own first album, The Graceful Fallen Mango, in 2001, before formally creating the band that launched his career. The group has pushed its sound with each new release, creating concept albums ranging from an opera about Don Henley to a re-imagining of Black Flag songs written from memory. With each new album, Longstreth’s style and cast of musicians has changed.
Longstreth and company released Bitte Orca in June, earning rave reviews from critics and fans. The new album continues the band’s trademark experimentation, mixing traditional string arrangements with exploding drums, spidery guitars and boisterous keyboards.
