A personal catastrophe didn’t keep me away from O’Leaver’s last night, but a lingering cold and general fatigue did. Now that I’ve glanced at the weekend’s line-up, I wish I would have gone out last night anyway.
There is nothing going on in regards to national touring bands. Nothing. Slowdown is closed for a private event tonight and tomorrow night, according to their website. Saturday TWR is hosting a benefit for Habitat for Humanity of Omaha featuring Satchel Grande, Midwest Dilemma, The 9’s, Brad Hoshaw and the Seven Deadlies and The Half Hearts. Tix are $10 today from onepercentproductions.com and $12 tomorrow at the door. Show starts at 7 p.m.
Hoshaw’s also playing a singer/songwriter gig tonight with Sarah Benck and a few others at Louis’ Bar on Radial Hwy. Back in the day, Louis’ was the home of the 50-cent shot. Probably not any more, but you never know. That show starts at 9 p.m. and is free.
And that’s it for the weekend.
