Thanksgiving Eve. Christmas Eve. July 3rd. And so on. These are all perfect nights for shows, since almost everyone can sleep in the following morning. And yet, historically there are very few shows on the eve of holidays in Omaha. I guess that’s to the venues’ advantage, since they’re all going to be packed tonight with or without bands performing on their stages.
That said, Slowdown is taking advantage of this holiday eve to christen their new “small stage,” located along the north side of the bar. The space is designed to host less-popular bands that would have a hard time filling the venue’s “big room.” Doing the honors is Flowers Forever (Derek Presnall of Tilly and the Wall) and Fourth of July (Adrianne Verhoeven of Art in Manila). The 8 p.m. show will run you $5, with all of it going to charity. With a capacity of around 100, I bet this one will be packed.
