The vivid purple exterior of Rocket Baby Bakery (6822 W. North Ave.) offers little clue of the interior. Inside it has the classic feel of an early-20th-century bakery, with tile floors, marble counters and a wooden ceiling. The front window displays the European-style breads baked here.

The mysterious Barnabas turned out to be a vampire, a circumspect and courtly initiate of the undead, and the already eccentric series just grew odder and odder as he became the star. “Dark Shadows” gathered a loyal following despite its low-rent direction.

Waukesha Civic Theatre has spared no expense. Fantastic costumes designed by Sharon Sohner dot every scene. The set, designed and created by A.J. Simon, is a wonder unto itself—all steel girders, wood slat shards, bamboo and straw, chain link and netting.

But the simple tale of life and death in small-town America has attained the kind of cultural ubiquity that makes it very difficult for modern audiences to relate to in an honest way that is devoid of artificial sentiment. In this way, modern productions of Our Town.

Blowtorch emerged on the Milwaukee alternative scene in the early ’80s with bands influenced by reggae and ska as well as rock and soul. Time has made him no less prolific or committed to adding his notes to the music that inspired him. 2012 was barely three months old before Blowtorch released two albums, the CD The Promise of Power.
