The Domes’ “Music Under Glass” begins anew

Ah, The Domes. Enjoyable in the daytime, especially as escape from the harsh Wisconsin winter. But what happens there at night? Until recently, not much. But within the last two years, the beloved park has been given a slight facelift (with the help of new high-tech LED lights) and has also been the venue for a new weekly music series on Thursday evenings.
The Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory (the real name for the three beehive glass structures located on a rise of Menomonee Valley) now plays host to the Music Under Glass
series, featuring such acts as Reverend Raven & The Chain Smoking Altar Boys, King Solomon, The Squeezettes, Paul Cebar, and Copper Box — beginning this month and continuing through March 2011. We heard Ed Franks
(don’t call him a Sinatra impersonator — but it’s pretty dead on) was playing the second week and sent our intrepid photo intern Matthew Dwyer to go check it out.
