This is one of the more rambunctious weekends for shows in quite a while. Four humdingers at four different venues. If Omaha were Lincoln, all of these would be mere walking distances from each other and we could stumble from one to another lost in an indie rock music haze. But instead, we’re in Omaha.
Let’s do this in alpha order, just so’s it doesn’t appear that I’m showing any favoritism.
Down at Sokol Underground, Brimstone Howl takes the stage with Bazooka Shootout, Alaphabet, & I Miss America. The Howl are flying high these days, what with signing to Alive Records and working with the guy from The Black Keys. No idea who the other bands are, and various research tools (Google, Myspace) come up with nothing. Still, $5 is a cheap price just to see Brimstone on a big stage before the band explodes to national notoriety. 9 p.m.
Meanwhile, over at The Saddle Creek Bar, Coyote Bones wraps up a nice little tour that took them to the East Coast and back. Playing along is Eagle*Seagull (who, one would hope, will be unveiling some new material) and Neva Dinova frontman Jake Bellows. $5, 9 p.m.
Just over the hill at The PS Collective (6056 Maple St. — part of The Pizza Shoppe), Shelter Belt is celebrating the release of their new CD, Under The World Awhile, with Omaha jazzman Luigi Waites & Paul Sim, The Masses, Fizzle Like A Flood (who’s coming out of retirement for this show), and Lincoln’s Papers. Shelter Belt kicks it off with an instrumental set at 6 p.m. and the thing runs all night (or at least to midnight). This one’s free and will be packed (with musicians, if no one else).
Finally, over at The 49’r, The Third Men take the stage with The Pendrakes. It’s been quite a while since T3M have played, so maybe we’ll get treated to a few new tunes and a new cover song. Niner shows start around 10 and will run you up to $5 (though I don’t know how much they’ll be charging tonight).
