Tonight: The Gunshy, Austin Britton, and Bill Latham at O’Leaver’s. The Gunshy are from Lancaster, PA/Chicago, IL and play souring indie rock fronted by a guy with a raspy voice that’s a cross between Tom Waits and Dicky Barrett. They’ve got a new album coming out on Latest Flame Records. The track I listened to on their site prominently featured trumpets. Wonder if they’ll have a trumpet player in tow. Austin Britton plays in Kite Pilot. Good stuff. $5, 9:30 p.m. Down at Sokol Underground, Irving, CA, band Thrice is playing with Underoath and Veda. $18, 9 p.m.
Saturday: The Cops, featuring former Omahan Mike Jaworski, is playing at The 49’r with Mt. Fuji labelmates Little Brazil and Race for Titles. The Cops are touring their new CD Get Good or Stay Bad, due in stores Nov. 1 — consider it a modern revisionist version of The Clash’s London Calling. Nice. $5, 9ish. Meanwhile, The Show Is the Rainbow is headlining downtown at Sokol Underground with Books on Tape and Lincoln legends Her Flyaway Manner. $7, 9 p.m. And if that wasn’t enough, those swinging kids, One Mummy Case, are playing a gig down at The Foundry Coffeehouse on 60th and Maple. 8 p.m., free.
Sunday: Underground hip-hop artist Sage Francis performs with Sole & Sol.iLLaquists of Sound at Sokol Underground. $15, 9 p.m.
