Yo La Tengo? Built to Spill? Nice; The Start, Birdlips tonight…

I was clicking through the One Percent Productions website today and noticed a couple awesome additions to their calendar. On top of the list is Yo La Tengo coming to Slowdown Oct. 9 — almost three years to the day that they played at Sokol Underground. That show, reviewed here, made my list as one of the best of ’06, partially because I’d been waiting 10 years for someone to book YLT in Omaha. This is a must-see show. Also, looks like our friends Tortoise is coming back to The Waiting Room Oct. 1. I didn’t think we’d see them again after their last appearance here back in June 2007 (see review) failed to sell out. And one of Omaha’s favorites, Built To Spill, has been booked to play at Slowdown Sept. 23. This was one of the first big national touring band to play Slowdown after it opened in the summer of 2007. This is winding up to be one of the stronger fall seasons for One Percent (and Slowdown).

OK, but what about tonight? Well, over at the Waiting Room, No Wave dance band The Start is playing with Normandie and Omaha expatriates Drake’s Hotel. $8, 9 p.m. Meanwhile, Slowdown Jr. is hosting Charlottesville/Washington D.C. indie duo Birdlips, with Brad Hoshaw and Midwest Dilemma.$7, 9 p.m.
