The hot ticket for the evening is Tim Kasher tonight at The Waiting Room. Kasher’s band includes Patrick Newbury on keyboards and trumpet, Dylan Ryan on drums and Lewis Patzner on cello and brass. Who knows if anyone else will be joining them. Opening the show is Austrailian singer/songrwriter Darren Hanlon, whose latest album, I Will Love You At All, came out on Yep Rock this past September. Also on the bill, Omaha’s own Conduits. Expect a crowd. $10, 9 p.m.

Tomorrow night (Saturday) is the stage debut of Blue Bird at The Barley Street Tavern. The band is fronted by Marta Fiedler on piano, guitar and vocals. Fiedler’s last gig was with Lincoln’s Hymn for the Hurricane. The six-piece ensemble is rounded out by vocalist/keyboardist Carrie Butler (Eagle*Seagull, Beauty in the Beast), drummer Rob Mathews (Apostrophe, Surfer Rosa), bassist Ben Sieff (Silicon Bomb, Nightmare, solo acoustic), violinist Samantha Brock, keyboardist/clarinetist Ian Simons (Thunder Power) and guitarist Vince Giambattista (Old Boy Network, Mandown, Secret Weapon). Talk about a diverse line-up. Also on the bill are Landing on the Moon and The Lepers. No idea what the order will be, so just get there at 9 and soak it all in. $5.
