Lots of stuff happening this weekend, but not until Saturday night.

Band Build Benefit

Band Build Benefit

Maybe the biggest show is the Band Build benefit for Habitat for Humanity at The Waiting Room. The lineup: Icky Blossoms, Blue Bird, Life Is Cool and John Klemmensen. Tickets are $10 today, $12 tomorrow and all proceeds (including money generated in the event raffle) go to Habitat Omaha. Starts at 8 (that’s right, 8 p.m.).

Also Saturday night, red hot indie rockers Gordon play at The Side Door Lounge, 3530 Leavenworth. Also on the bill is I Am the Navigator. I’m told Gordon goes on at 10 p.m. sharp, and that the show is absolutely free.

Meanwhile down the street at O’Cursive’s — uh, O’Leaver’s — it’s Field Club with Pony Wars and Morning at Sea. $5, 9:30 p.m. Check out some Field Club below:

Finally, down at The Slowdown, Columbia recording artist Wild Belle (fuzzy reggae dance) opens for Satchel Grande. Not sure how that happened. $10, 9 p.m.

Then comes Sunday and with it the return of The Waiting Room’s $3 showcase, this time sponsored by Schell’s Brewing Co. and featuring Back When, New Lungs and Baby Tears. Show starts at 9 p.m.

What am I missing? Put it in the comments section.

One more thing… Bright Eyes’ song “First Day Of My Life” has made the cut of BBC Radio 6’s Top 100 Greatest Hits of the past decade, and now voting is open to pick the very best. You can vote for Bright Eyes’ tune — or any song on the list that you think is better — right here. Voting is open through 7 p.m. London time today…
