First, there’s an interesting story on Bright Eyes’ trip to Anchorage in this week’s Anchorage Press (read it here), where Oberst compares the level of desolation between Alaska and Nebraska. “We come from a pretty desolate place too.” Well, not that desolate, Conor. Wonder when Bright Eyes is going to play Hawaii (maybe they already have).
Moving on to the weekend…
Tonight at Slowdown, it’s the return of Two Gallants, who were just there in August. Opener Blitzen Trapper sounds like a psychedelic indie alt country freak-out, at least on their recordings. $8, 9 p.m., with Songs for Moms.
Meanwhile, over at The Waiting Room, the Box Elders open for Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs. Dave and them thar McIntyre boys are always entertaining. $8, 9 p.m., also with Ric Rhythm and the Revengers.
Tomorrow night it’s Merge band Oakley Hall at The Waiting Room with The 1900’s and Omaha’s own The Third Men. Oakley Hall plays twangy indie rock influenced by bands like Wilco. $8, 9 p.m. (scenester alert).
Meanwhile, over at The Saddle Creek Bar, Israeli experimental noise rock band Lebanon (myspace here) plays with Prize Country. $5, 9 p.m., while Kyle Harvey and Scott Severin play at The Barley St. 9 p.m./free.
