Missed opportunities; The Hold Steady tonight; Depressed Buttons’ ‘Ow!’…

Apologies to whomever I spoke to Saturday night at the Digital Leather show at O’Leaver’s for not sticking around. I showed up at around 10, in time to catch Peace of Shit, but began to feel sick after downing a beer. It must have been something I ate. Regardless, I missed DL and POS, and hopefully will get a chance to catch both bands again in the very near future.

Good shows are becoming more and more rare these days, probably due to the onset of winter, so it’s a real bummer whenever I miss a chance to see any band. That said, tonight at The Bourbon Theater in Lincoln it’s The Hold Steady with Company Of Thieves and Omaha’s own Filter Kings. I’m not a huge Hold Steady fan, but if I were in Lincoln I’d still probably go to this one. $16, 8 p.m.

Depressed Buttons, the new project featuring Baechle, Fink and Thiele of The Faint, is giving away its latest single, “Ow!” on Facebook and Pitchfork. Their debut EP, QWERTY, comes out Dec. 7 on Mad Decent. Check it out.

So I see iTunes now sells Beatles songs. Why is this news?
