So where is that Regina Spektor show tonight? The redesigned Sokol website, along with Regina’s own site and Ticketmaster say it’s upstairs at Sokol Auditorium. The Omaha World Herald, however, says it’s down in Sokol Underground. Any other time I’d just ask One Percent Productions, but they’re not putting on this show. I guess I’ll find out when I arrive. Spektor has a cute, quirky piano-driven sound reminiscent of Tori Amos but without Amos’ bullshit melodrama and pretension. There’s an honesty to Spektor’s music that Amos could never have. I wouldn’t be surprised if this one was moved downstairs.
Spektor might be a Subterranean darling, but she’s unknown around these parts. As of noon today, this show is SOLD OUT, 8 p.m.
Elsewhere tonight, The Waiting Room is hosting twang-mistress singer/songwriter Pieta Brown with Minneapolis folkies The Pines and Omaha’s own Paper Owls. $10, 9 p.m.
Tomorrow night is the big Urban Outfitters “Grand Opening Celebration” down at Slowdown with Tilly and the Wall, Baby Walrus and Bear Country all for free and starting at 9 p.m. O’Leaver’s is hosting a show by two bands I’ve never heard of — Theodore and Bad Folk. $5, 9:30 p.m. O’Leaver’s shows sadly are becoming rarer and rarer these days.
Sunday at O’Leaver’s it’s The Lepers with Ferocious Eagle ($5, 9 p.m.), while The Waiting Room is hosting Jake Bellows and Friends — who could these “friends” be? $7, 9 p.m.
Of course, don’t forget Lincoln Calling, going on all weekend. Check out the Lincoln Calling website for all the latest schedules.
