Welcome to Lazy-i, an online music magazine that includes feature interviews, reviews and news.

The focus is on the indie music scene. Yes, there’s a special emphasis on the best original bands in the Omaha area, but Lazy-i also offers interviews, stories and reviews about national indie bands.

Most of the feature stories and columns in Lazy-i will have previously been published in The Reader, Omaha’s monthly alternative newspaper.



Brothers Open Casket Series is (almost) completely sold out…

Category: Blog — @ 12:40 pm October 21, 2021

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

I warned you if you didn’t get your tickets to the upcoming shows at The Brothers Lounge that they’d sell out, and sure enough, all but this Saturday’s Cat Piss / Kal Marks / Leaf Blower show are sold out.

In fact, I tried to get in to last weekend’s Digital Leather show at Brothers and was turned away at the door as they were already at capacity. You snooze, you lose. The sell outs are an indication that the fact Brothers is closing for good at the end of October is now well known. I intended to write about the closing in the October issue of The Reader, but was told to keep it on the down low.

While it’s cool these shows are selling out, The Brothers, to me, is/was more of a punk rock club to hang out and drink (best jukebox in town!) than it was a live music venue, and I’m sure the find folks who run the place would agree, having run one of Omaha’s legendary live music venues – the amazing Capitol Bar & Grill in downtown Omaha, home to some of the greatest rock shows of the ‘90s.

The Brothers has had their share of great shows over the years as well. An early gig by The Faint is on that list, as well as those Serial gigs that took place around the holidays the past few years. The “on the record” reason why the bar is closing will have to wait, and I can’t speculate other than to say The Blackstone District is not the same neighborhood it was during the bar’s heyday when you couldn’t find an empty table on a Friday or Saturday night. The Brothers has long been thee after-show destination for those with discernible taste.

It seems the smaller Omaha clubs have been hit hardest by the pandemic, or at least the smaller bars that featured live music. Small stages like The Barley Street, O’Leaver’s and now Brothers Lounge are going away. O’Leaver’s remains a head-scratcher. As far as I can tell there are no immediate plans to reopen their little stage (but we can always hope). And while it’s a bummer for those of us who liked the smaller punk rock venues, it’s a real killer for young local bands who need a place to perform.

Omaha still has a plethora of great music venues and more on the way, but other than The Sydney in Benson, none cater to the up-and-coming indie and punk rock acts the way these small clubs did.

Post Animal POSTPONED; Digital Leather, Nowhere, Las Cruxes, Dharma Rose, Mere Shadows Saturday…

Category: Blog — @ 1:15 pm October 15, 2021

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

Digital Leather at The Sydney June 28, 2021. They’re playing Saturday night at Brothers Lounge.

It’s the weekend, folks. Here’s what we got.

NOTE: THIS SHOW HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL NOV. 8! Post Animal is a Chicago neo-psych band maybe best known as the band that the kid from Netflix show Stranger Things was in. Joe Keery plays older guy Steve Harrington who works in the mall food court, who befriends the four little kids on their quest to untangle the Upside Down. He’s pretty good on the show, which I like. Anyway… He ain’t in Post Animal no more, or at least isn’t touring with them since the success of Stranger Things.

The band’s 2018 album, When I Think of You in a Castle, was their first release on Polyvinyl, who stayed with them on their 2020 follow-up, Forward Motion Godyssey. They fancy themselves a prog-rock act, but they’re more of a vibe act in the vein of Tame Impala, and are at their best when they’re avoiding classic rock riffs and leaning into the beats. Still, no question these guys probably listened to their share of Pink Floyd albums.

Post Animal headlines tonight at The Slowdown. Touring with them is Portland art-rock dance-beat duo Reptaliens, and Omaha’s own Garst. $20, 8 p.m.

Also tonight, Doom Lagoon plays at Brokedown Palace, 88th and Maple St., with Texas act Riley! and our very own keyboard-drum-prog-monsters Pagan Athletes. $5, 8:30 p.m.

Saturday night has Digital Leather at The Brothers Lounge as part of the “Open Casket Series.” DL is coming off an appearance at this year’s Goner Fest. Joining them is Nowhere, a new act that features members of Retox, No Thanks and Natural States. Opening the show at 9:30 is red hot Latin punk band Las Cruxes. This one’s loaded and is only $7.

Let me take a second to clarify something I posted a few days ago. I said if that the Oct. 29 Brothers show with Serial, Those Far Out Arrows and Pagan Athletes was going to sell out for reasons I can’t explain. A number of you misinterpreted that to say that there will be secret, unannounced band playing that night. That’s not the case, at least to my understanding. The show will sell out for sentimental reasons that many (most) of you know already. So, no secret show. Carry on.

Also Saturday night, singer/songwriter Mitch Gettman plays at The Berkley, a new lounge/live music room at 1901 Leavenworth (just down from Shucks). 8 p.m. and no cover.

Finally, The Dharma Rose plays at The Sydney in Benson Saturday night with Mere Shadows. We’re talking some heavy shit. $5, 9 p.m.

That’s all I got. If I missed your show, put it in the comments section. Have a great weekend!

New Music: Matt Whipkey, Shurr Jr., Uh-Oh; get your Brothers tickets (while you can)…

Category: Blog — @ 2:09 pm October 12, 2021

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

Matt Whipkey, Hard (2021, Unusual)

This morning Matt Whipkey dropped a surprise with the release of his new full-length, Hard. Actually, it’s not that much of a surprise as I interviewed Matt last weekend for a column that will support his Nov. 12 album release show at Jewell. That’s when the vinyl will be available. The digital version is out now on all the usual services and for purchase from Bandcamp.

Those who know Matt know that this is a personal album of sorts. It’s being released by a consortium out of Minneapolis called Unusual. Recorded and mixed by Matt, Scott Gaeta and Ian Aeillo, it’s arguably the best sounding album in Whipkey’s rather large catalog of releases, and I’m told the vinyl sounds even better (lacquers cut by the legendary Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Services). Check out the tracks below and get your tickets to the Nov. 12 show. And watch for the November issue of The Reader for more info about the making of Hard.

More new music news…

Shurr Jr. is a new project out of Sioux Falls, SD, with some strong Omaha connections. The trio consists of brothers Frankie, Sam and Nick Maxwell, the offspring of legendary Fifth of May musician Frank Maxwell. They dropped their first single, “Dysania” b/w “Uncool” Oct. 1 on Max Trax Records. Recorded and mixed by Nate Van Fleet of See Through Dresses fame. Check out the tracks below. Word has it the trio has a full EP recorded and ready to drop as well. Now all we need is to get them to Omaha to do a show.

Last week Omaha indie band Uh-Oh announced it’s releasing a new album, Good Morning, Dec. 3. It’s a product of the pandemic (what isn’t these days?) The first single, “Still Life,” isn’t due until Oct. 22. See their story below.

The Oct. 29 rock show at The Brothers Lounge is going to be a very special affair. I can’t tell you more, though if you know, you know. And if you know, then you know it’s in your best interest to purchase your tickets to this show, which is guaranteed to sell out. Headlining is Omaha ’90s legendary supergroup Serial. Joining them are Those Far Out Arrows and Pagan Athletes. Needless to say, this is a big deal. The only place to get tickets is at The Brothers, so stop in and have a drink and get you a pair before they’re gone.

Live Review: Indigo De Souza, The Slaps at Slowdown…

Category: Blog,Reviews — Tags: , — @ 7:16 am October 4, 2021

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

Indigo De Souza at The Slowdown Oct. 2, 2021.

A highlight of Indigo De Souza’s latest album, Any Shape You Take (2021, Saddle Creek) is the remarkable band who backs her, whose members are something of a mystery as they weren’t credited (online anyway). I don’t know if the folks that played with De Souza Saturday night at Slowdown were the ones on the album or not, but they sure were good.

Especially lead guitarist Dexter Webb, who played with a style reminiscent of Lindsey Buckingham, all quick-fills and amazing fingered adagios. I shot a photo of his guitar and texted it to the one of the city’s resident guitar experts and asked what kind of guitar it was. Mr. Whipkey’s response: “Vintage 12-string Ovation Breadwinner electric, maybe. That’s a rare-ass guitar if so.”

Webb, who must stand over six foot, towered over the rest of the band as he leaned into the fills and gaps (there were no solos, per se), a fluid, tonal counter-balance to De Souza’s more freeform vocals that were unashamedly honest and personal – which is a sloppy way of saying she was more concerned with emoting that staying on pitch.

The only other name I caught was drummer Avery Sullivan – I missed the bass player’s name, but he, too, was a virtuoso, his fingers flying across the frets, as De Souza crushed through a 75-minute set of songs from her last two albums in front of a decent-sized (150?) crowd of fans that filled the bowl in front of the stage.

You guys are so chill, you’re spooking me,” De Souza said halfway through the set. “It’s like playing in someone’s living room. Talk amongst yourselves.” This isn’t the first time I’ve heard Omaha crowds described this way, but you’ll have to go through the archives and find that review. I’m not sure what De Souza is used to, but she said the night before at Minneapolis’ First Avenue was “crazy.” I guess she’s never heard of “Nebraska Nice.”

The Slaps at The Slowdown, Oct. 2, 2021.

Opening act, Chicago’s The Slaps, played a tight set of indie rock that showcased their chops on songs whose style leaned close to early Vampire Weekend, though maybe not so clingy. If there’s a quibble to the night, it was that The Slaps precise mix was a ton better than De Souza’s, whose mix sounded crowded, dense, bordering on blown-out, but maybe that’s what she was going for.

A note about The Slowdown: This was my first show there since the pandemic. There are a few changes that may/may not have been in place before. The low tables have been replaced with high-tops, the booths replaced with low-tops — is a big improvement. The door guys were thorough with the vax requirement checking (show card and ID to match, which is the only way to go), and it only took a moment. Easy peasy. This should be a requirement at all clubs until we get past the Covid.

Lodgings, Problems, BFF tonight; Indigo De Souza, The Slaps, Clarence Tilton Saturday, Velveteers, Magu Sunday…

Category: Blog — @ 7:20 am October 1, 2021

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

Lodgings back in December 2019. The band plays tonight at The Sydney.

Well, well, well, a full slate of shows this weekend. It’s been awhile.

If you haven’t noticed, today is Oct. 1 and it’s Friday which means it’s Benson First Friday (#BFF). The galleries will be popping all along Maple Street tonight, so get out and bring your checkbook (and your mask).

As part of BFF, The Sydney is hosting it’s BFF show, headlined by one of best indie acts in Omaha, — Lodgings. The group consists of Bryce Hotz, Steve Micek (yes, that Steve Micek), Mike Laughlin, Eric Ernst and Megan Siebe. It’s sort of a super-group. Their last album, 2019’s Water Works, has helped get us through the pandemic. Now see it performed on stage. Joining them is Problems a.k.a. Darren Keen (The Show Is the Rainbow) and Vision Video from Athens. $10, 10 p.m.

Tomorrow night (Saturday), red hot indie act Indigo De Souza (Saddle Creek Records) headlines at The Slowdown. This show originally was slated for the small room but has now been shifted to the main room, likely due to ticket sales. You read what I had to say about her new album in The Reader (here). Opening is Chicago trio The Slaps. 8 p.m., $18. No vax, no entry, so bring your card.

Meanwhile, uptown at Reverb Lounge in Benson Saturday night, local alt-country twangers Clarence Tilton headlines with Owen Justice. $10, 9 p.m.

Finally Sunday night back down at Slowdown Jr. Boulder blues/psych rock band The Velveteers headlines. Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys worked on the next full length, Nightmare Daydream, which drops next Friday on Easy Eye Sounds. Opening is our very own Magu. $12, 8 p.m.

And that’s all I got. If I missed your show, put it in the comments section.

By the way, it’s Bandcamp Friday, so when you check out the music above, make a purchase. Today Bandcamp is waiving their fees and passing the cash along to the bands.

Have a great weekend!

Lincoln Calling weekend; Sun-less Trio Saturday; Thighmaster Sunday…

Category: Blog — @ 7:17 am September 24, 2021

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

The calendar is looking mighty light this weekend.

Lincoln Calling is in full swing (started yesterday, actually). To some degree, organizers have swayed away from indie in the line-up, though there are a few notables, including Las Cruxes, Jim Schroeder/Mesa Buoy, Plack Blague, Universe Contest, Dirt House, Marcey Yates & Xoboi and Conny Franko.

LC events were originally going to be held at venues, now due to COVID, the entire event is being held outside at Tower Square, Duffy’s Back Lot and Night Market. Single-day tickets for tonight and tomorrow night are $25; all access is $45. Go to LincolnCalling.com for the schedule.

Tomorrow night (Saturday), Mike Saklar’s band, The Sun-Less Trio, headlines at Brothers Lounge. Joining them are The Dharma Rose and Sazcha. $7, 9:30 p.m.

Sunday night Kansas City psych-rock band Thighmaster (High Dive Records) headlines at The Sydney in Benson. Joining them are Ah (members of And How) and Captain Howdy (members of Garst). No price listed for this one but it’s probably $10. Starts at 9 p.m.

One last note, The Berkley, a new cocktail lounge/music venue at 1901 Leavenworth (just down from Shucks), celebrates its Grand Opening tonight at 8 p.m. I wrote about this place a few years ago, before the pandemic. It’s good to see that it’s finally opening. Kaylyn Sahs and Alexis DeBoer are preforming, and there’s no cover. More info here.

That’s all I got. If I missed your show, put it in the comments section. Have a great weekend.

One Percent and partners to break ground on La Vista project; new Maria Taylor…

Category: Blog — @ 12:53 pm September 23, 2021

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

Ever want to see One Percent Production’s Jim Johnson and Marc Leibowitz in a hardhat? 

On Tuesday, the folks creating the new indoor performance space and amphitheater in La Vista, The Astro, announced that groundbreaking will take place Sept. 29. Why did I think they already began construction on this project?

From the press release: “Looking to fill the gap of a medium-sized venue in Omaha’s metro’s music scene, City+Ventures along with live music and entertainment businesses One Percent Productions and Mammoth, Inc have joined forces on a new music venue:  The Astro Theater.  The official groundbreaking for the venue is set for Wednesday, September 29 at 11:00 AM with La Vista Mayor Douglas Kindig, city council members, city staff, project partners, and developers all on hand.”

Will everyone be holding a shovel? You can bet on it. 

The Astro Theater is designed as the focal point of the mixed-use La Vista City Centre development. The 2,500-person, 52,000-square-foot indoor theater connects to an outdoor grass amphitheater, hosting 5,000 attendees and overlooking a 34-acre public park. The indoor venue and adjacent amphitheater are located in La Vista City Centre, 8302 City Centre Drive, La Vista, Nebraska. Construction is set to begin the week of groundbreaking with plans for The Astro Theater to debut in January 2023.

We’ve created a venue that provides the flexibility we know artists want in a new lifestyle development that brings the ultimate customer experience for their fans,” said 1%’s Jim Johnson.

The press release goes on to say One Percent Productions and Mammoth, Inc. will manage bookings for the facility.

Imagine the acts we’re going to be getting coming through Omaha now with this project, The Admiral (Sokol Auditorium) project and the new Omaha Performing Arts downtown-based Steelhouse live music venue…

Maria Taylor this morning dropped a new video for single “It’s Coming For You,” directed by Alan Tanner. The song is released on Taylor’s Flower Moon Records, which also released a new Azure Ray album, Remedy, this past June. Check it out.

Jeff Runnings talks new For Against reissue; Bad Bad Hats, And How tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 12:52 pm September 22, 2021

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

And How performing outside at The Slowdown, Oct. 3, 2020. The band opens for Bad Bad Hats tonight at Reverb Lounge.

Couple things worth mentioning today…

First is that Bad Bad Hats show at Reverb tonight. I think more people will be there for And How than the headliner, who is painfully at risk of being Omaha’d. My advice if you go is to stick around. 8 p.m., $15.

Secondly, Jeff Runnings of For Against recently did an interesting interview with Post-Punk.com. Conducted in support of FA’s vinyl reissue of 2002’s Coalesced by Cercle Social Records (limited to 600), Jeff talks about the making of the record, working with Mike Mogis, Saddle Creek Records (and the scene surrounding it in 2002), and talks about some of his most recent musical likes (and dislikes). He also mentions more upcoming For Against projects, including a possible expanded version of Eschelons that could include some early unreleased tracks.

Check it out.

Ten Questions with Bad Bad Hats (with And How at Reverb 9/22)…

Category: Blog,Interviews — Tags: , , — @ 7:17 am September 21, 2021

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

Bad Bad Hats play at Reverb Lounge Wednesday, Sept. 22.

This is the first Ten Questions interview since before the pandemic! Green shoots? Maybe.

Minnesota band Bad Bad Hats are no strangers to Omaha, having opened for The Mynabirds at Slowdown back in 2015 (alongside the lost-but-not-forgotten High Up). They’re back in support of their new album, Walkman, which dropped last Friday on Don Giovanni Records.

The power-pop trio has a soft spot for jangly, cool ‘90s indie rock. In fact, my first run through the album I was reminded of Exile-era Liz Phair, though front woman Kerry Alexander’s lyrics of love gone wrong (and right) aren’t nearly as dark and acerbic as Liz’s bedroom diaries. Playing alongside bandmates bass player Chris Hoge and drummer Connor Davison, Bad Bad Hats headlines at Reverb Lounge Sept. 22.

We caught up with Kerry and gave her the Ten Questions treatment. Here’s what she had to say:

  1. What is your favorite album?

Kerry Alexander: Wow, tough question from the start! How to choose, how to choose. Obviously different albums have been my #1 at different points in my life. But one I always come back to is Fortress Round My Heart by Ida Maria. 

  1. What is your least favorite song?

I, in general, don’t believe in “guilty pleasures” in music, or that certain genres aren’t good, etc. I feel like if music is making you feel an emotion then it’s working as intended. That said, I don’t love “Boogie Shoes.” 

  1. What do you enjoy most about being in a band?

There are many things to love, but I like that it’s allowed me to travel so much. I love experiencing new places, trying new food, seeing friends who live far away. I also love the synergy of playing music with other people. When you’ve practiced and you’re on your game and you anticipate each other’s moves. It’s a very special bond. 

  1. What do you hate about being in a band?

Rock venue bathrooms. 

  1. What is your favorite substance (legal or illegal)?

My lack of illegal substance use is well-documented (see our song “Nothing Gets Me High”). So I guess I’ll say, I like emotional substance. Deep conversations. Sincere feelings. Haha! That’s pretty corny, but I’m sticking with it.

  1. In what city or town do you love to perform?

This question is always so hard to answer because we love playing in so many different cities and venues. We love Chicago, we love Madison, we love Portland, we love Charlotte, we obviously always love the hometown gig. And I know this is an Omaha publication, so not to pander, but we do have so many great Omaha show memories. It’s always a good crowd, Reverb Lounge is an amazing venue, and it doesn’t hurt that we can get some Coneflower ice cream before we leave town…!

  1. What city or town did you have your worst gig (and why)?

Well we try to block those shows from our memory, but we’ve probably played the worst shows in the Twin Cities. Because that’s where we got our start! And we needed some time to get good at our instruments and our flow and our stage presence. And we’re grateful that folks stuck with us while we figured it out. Being a musician is a constant learning experience for me. But that’s what I like about it!

  1. Are you able to support yourself through your music? If so, how long did it take to get there; if not, how do you pay your bills?

We are professional musicians, yes. And that feels good to say! Because it took us about 6 to 7 years of being a band before we could say that. Chris, our bass player, accidentally became a full-time musician when his part-time job told him he couldn’t come back after a tour. Haha! So sometimes you just have to make it work. 

  1. What one profession other than music would you like to attempt; what one profession would you absolutely hate to do?

I would love to work in music supervision. That sounds fun! Maybe? I don’t actually know what that job entails. But I like the idea of it. Is there anything better than a perfectly soundtracked movie or TV moment? I would be in trouble in any job where I have to drive a giant vehicle. Keep me away from that.

  1. What are the stories you’ve heard about Omaha, Nebraska?

I don’t know if anyone’s told me a story about Omaha. I went there the first time with no preconceived notions. I only know my own Omaha story. Which is: Show up to the venue. Load in and soundcheck. Go get some delicious ramen. Grab a beer at the beautiful Reverb Lounge bar. Play a great show. Talk to a bunch of friendly people at the merch table. Go to sleep. Wake up the next day and have Archetype coffee and Coneflower for breakfast. And what a wonderful story it is!

Bad Bad Hats play with And How on Wednesday, Sept. 22, at Reverb Lounge, 6121 Military Ave. Tickets are $15, showtime is 8 p.m. For more information, go to onepercentproductions.com.
