A few follow-ups to yesterday’s blog entry:
— Turns out The Millions used to play in Omaha all the time, most notably at the long-gone Sharkey’s (which became The Music Box which was torn down to make room for a 24 Hour Fitness). Alas, those shows somehow flew under my radar, though I often frequented Sharkey’s.
— That Titus Andronicus show Nov. 21 is being held at Sokol Underground, not The Sandbox. Also on the bill Ceremony, Slut River and Gordon.
— Kevin Coffey has another report on the closing of The Antiquarium in the Omaha World-Herald, which you can read here. The key bit of information:
(Co-owner Joseph) Tingley and Brian Byrd would like to reopen the store after clearing their debt and if they can find a new location with lower rent.
“We want to reopen at some point,” Tingley said.
Maybe you guys can find cheap digs in Benson? It could use a record store.

Desaparecidos is slated to perform tonight on Last Call with Carson Daly on NBC. Also scheduled on the telecast: Brother Ali and The Iran Job. Check your local listings and set your DVR/Tivo.
