Of Montreal returns to Omaha again tonight, this time at Slowdown with Painted Palms (Secretly Canadian). Of Montreal played Sokol Auditorium lasts October. This should be quite an upgrade venue-wise. Tickets are still available for $25. Show starts at 9.
Speaking of returning artists, the Nadas return to The Waiting Room tonight; they were just at TWR last December. Opening is Lonely Estates. $15, 9 p.m.
Tomorrow night its tUnE-yArDs at Slowdown Jr. with Buke and Gass. Tune-Yards (I’m already tired of their wonky capitalization) have a huge hit on their hands with whokill (4AD), one of the best albums I’ve heard so far this year and a quantum jump in quality ahead of their debut, 2009’s Bird Brains. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if this one sold out. $8, 9 p.m.
The other hot show Saturday night is Dave Goldberg’s new project, Solid Goldberg, at The Brothers with Bullet Proof Hearts and R.A.F. SG is riding a wave of hype after opening for Black Lips a couple weeks ago. Expect to be blown away. Bullet Proof Hearts is Mark Blackman’s latest project, fronted by Kevin Moran on guitar/vocals. No idea on the door, but it’s usually around $5. Show should start at 9 p.m.
Also Saturday night, Bazooka Shootout headlines a show at The Barley Street Tavern with We Live in Sod Houses, Cheers and Down Came the Train. $5, 9 p.m.
