Another all-local weekend… Snake Island, All Young Girls Are Machine Guns Saturday; Simon Joyner plays Lincoln…
by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com
There are no touring indie bands playing here this weekend, which means another weekend of local-artist shows. Tonight, pickins are slim. I suggest getting your drink on at O’Leaver’s where Tyrone Storm, a.k.a. Roger Lewis, will be spinning the dark gaze stuff from 9 til 2 a.m. Glug-glug… And, of course, there’s always The Brothers and Krug, and so on.
There are more opportunities for live music Saturday night. All Young Girls Are Machine Guns open for Anniversaire and Lincoln band The Sleepover at Slowdown Jr. This could be my inaugural exposure to AYGAMG, who won an OEA Award for best songwriter this year. $7, 9 p.m.
Over at The Waiting Room Saturday night Snake Island, Landing on the Moon and Traveling Mercies open for Rock Paper Dynamite, another 2012 OEA Award winner. $7, 9 p.m.
All you Lincoln folks will be getting your first chance to Simon Joyner in a Lincoln club in a decade this Saturday night when Simon rolls into the Zoo Bar with Kill County. To mark the occasion, Lincoln music legend L. Kent Wolgamott has an interview with Simon in the current issue of the Lincoln Journal Star‘s Ground Zero, which you can read online here. 9 p.m., $8.
And I guess there is one touring act coming through on Sunday night (though I wouldn’t consider them “indie”). The Reverend Horton Heat is playing at The Slowdown with Larry and His Flask and Godamned Gallows. $20, 8 p.m.
