I have no idea what’s going on tonight, the day after the blizzard of ’07. Last night I was driving around and the streets were snow-packed but fine. Still, OPS is closed today, as are a number of businesses. That said, check with the venue if you’re wondering about a show’s status tonight. The only real question mark that I have is whether Once a Pawn makes it from Lincoln tonight for their show with Jaeger Fight and Bent Left at O’Leaver’s. Last week I mistakenly said that Paper Owls had been recording with ARC Studio’s Ian Aeillo (and that may be the case in the future), but the fact is I confused them with Once a Pawn, who actually has been recording with Ian. That show is $5 and starts at 9:30.
Another notable show tonight is Cap Gun Coup w/Baby Walrus and Whatever Happened to Dinosaurs at Sokol Underground. Cap Gun Coup has the distinction of being name-checked by Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst during a recent interview — what that equates to, I don’t know. I haven’t seen them perform live yet, but dig their stuff on their Myspace page. $7, 9 p.m.
Also tonight, rootsy folk band Outlaw Con Bandana plays at Mick’s with jazzmen Kevin Pike/John Kotchian and Hot Sick. ($5, 8:30 p.m.).
And for the strangest gig of the evening, according to their Myspace page, New Jersey band Ours, who records on Geffen/Universal, are scheduled to play at The 49’r tonight with Bay Area band The Michetons. Ours, who I’ve never heard of, obviously are heavily influenced by Radiohead, right down to their vocalist’s Thom Yorke aping. $7, 9:30 p.m.
If I’m missing anything, post it here. Look for another show update tomorrow.
