The Omaha World-Herald plastered its front page this morning with this in-depth report on the flamboyant activities of one Lady Gaga. Investigative reporter Jose Loza blew the lid off the story, providing minute-by-minute details of everything from Gaga’s adventures in scallop shopping to yesterday’s tawdry private bowling romp. No stone was left unturned in this comprehensive expose. This is the kind of gritty journalism that you just can’t get from local television news… The only question left unanswered: Where to now, Gaga…? I suspect she’s aboard her silver dart headed back to Gotham City with her Nebraska lover in tow… God bless us, everyone.

Looks like Saddle Creek Records is playing whack-a-mole with websites posting leaks of two more tracks from the upcoming The People’s Key. Tracks “One for You, One for Me,” and “A Machine Spiritual,” were posted on Consequence of Sound yesterday and YouTube as early as this morning (as well as Kevin Coffey’s awesome Rock Candy blog), but all have been yanked. Something tells me they’ll be “in the wild” shortly anyway.

It’s the first of two nights of the Return of Mousetrap tonight at Lincoln’s Bourbon Theater. Joining the masters of mayhem are fellow veterans of Nebraska’s first Golden Age of punk, Mercy Rule, and future heroes Dim Light. $5, 8 p.m. Do not miss this.

Tomorrow, what you’ve all been waiting for: The Year in Review.
