The show with the biggest buzz this weekend is without a doubt Thor at The Saddle Creek Bar Saturday night with Zolar X. I’ve heard nothing but freaked-out praise about Thor’s July 3 Shea Riley’s gig — we’re talking costumes, bodybuilders and full-on heavy metal riffage. And I know from talking to Saddle Creek’s Mike Coldewey that the band will be building special staging for Saturday night’s carnage. The whole thing starts at 8 p.m. with a Thor movie, followed by Zolar X, then Thor, backed by the same band that backed him in July — Omaha’s own Dave Goldberg (The Terminals), Steve Jacobs (Diabolic Possession and The Filthy Few) and Jeff Decker. You can save a couple bucks by buying advance tickets today for $8 from firstname.lastname@example.org (according to Slam Omaha). Tomorrow the door will be $10. In addition to first-rate zany entertainment, you’ll get a chance to see and hear the reopened Saddle Creek Bar. Don’t forget your broadsword.
Before all that (specifically, tonight), Little Brazil will be playing at O’Leaver’s with Casper & The Cookies (ex-Of Montreal) and the somersaulting Poison Control Center. $5, 9:30 p.m.
Those not headed to The SCB for Thor may want to drive downtown to Sokol Underground Saturday night for Cloud Cult with Shinyville and Noah’s Ark Was a Spaceship. Cloud Cult puts on an elaborate stage show, with painter/artists on stage and other weirdness augmenting their Modest Mouse-esque pop indie sound. $8, 9 p.m.
The capper for the weekend is Outlaw Con Bandana at O’Leaver’s Sunday night with Francois and Rachel Dadd. $5, 9:30 p.m.
