Following up on yesterday’s post: Hear Nebraska ended up with 310 donors in yesterday’s giving bonanza called Give to Lincoln Day. I don’t know the actual breakdown of donations to matching funds and prizes, but the grand total they’ll receive was $9,622 in cash, $1,000 of which came as a result of being the organization with the third-highest number of “new donors” during the promotion (300), nosing out 4th place finisher Cat House by a paw (but don’t feel sorry for them, Cat House raised more than $18k, which will buy a lot of Meow Mix). You can see the stat here. Congratulations to HN and thanks to all who gave money and spread the word via social media.

That 300 number… interesting.

The folks at the Maha Music Festival will make their final lineup announcement Sunday night, including a list of local stage acts. I think you’ll be pleased by what you’ll hear.

The weekend lineup is looking pretty light, especially in Omaha. The only show on my radar is the return of Deer Tick Sunday night at The Waiting Room. Opening is Turbo Fruits (Fat Possum, Thurston Moore’s Ecstatic Peace Records) along with York PA band Teenage Mysticism. $13 Adv./$15 DOS. 9 p.m. start time.
