It’s been one of those weeks, which explains the odd timing of these posts. Needless to say I missed the last two nights of shows at The Waiting Room, but have no intention of missing tonight’s gig at O’Leaver’s.
Chicago indie legends Joan of Arc is headlining everyone’s favorite drunk tank on Saddle Creek Road. JoC’s centerpoint is Tim Kinsella, who formed the band after his previous band, Cap’n Jazz, bit the dust in ’95. Joan of Arc is no stranger to Omaha. I last recall them playing The Waiting Room in aught 8.
Their music swings between indie rock and wonky experimental noise, with “songs” that can be…challenging. Still, these guys are definitely worth your $7 cover. Opening is Omaha’s own Thunder Power. The fun starts at 9:30.
