Is it me or has Slowdown put some giddy-up in their booking? Remember when Robb and Jason said they were only going to do two or three shows a week? Just glancing at their calendar, I think that’s headed out the window, and why not? It’s a shame to let the venue’s two wonderful stages go to waste. But before we get to that, tonight is the farewell performance of Life After Laserdisque. I’m not sure why the band has decided to hang it up, but they’re going out in style, headlining at O’Leaver’s with Kansas City’s The Dark Circles (Anodyne Records) and Ketchup and Mustard Gas (Mark from Dance Me Pregnant, Dustin from Paria, Andy from Capgun Coup). Will there be special guest appearances by Eric Clapton or Bob Dylan? Highly doubtful. 9:30, $5.
Also tonight, Hyannis, Talkin’ Mountain, Electric Needle Room and Top Hat at Shea Riley’s. It’s the CD release party for ENR. $5 if you’re over 21, $8 if you’re not (but are over 18). 9 p.m.
Saturday night, The Mountain Goats return to Omaha, this time at Slowdown with Bowerbirds. Anyone remember what happened the last time the Goats came through? You can reminisce here, and then look for Donovan lurking over by the photo booth, ready to pounce. $12, 9 p.m. Also Saturday night, Dallas-based ’80s-inspired rockers Black Tie Dynasty plays at The Waiting Room with A. Symbiont. $7, 9 p.m.
Sunday night it’s Stars at Slowdown with Magnet. $15, 9 p.m.
