First off, apologies for Monday’s review of last Saturday’s Hear Nebraska Take Cover show. I think I got as much wrong in that review as one could possibly get wrong, from the wrong Bright Eyes song covered by Ian Aeillo to misidentifying the band in which Rachel Tomlinson Dick plays in to not realizing that Landon Hedges was covering a Mousetrap song. The only thing I did get right was that I had a good time…

Not a lot going on music-wise this week. No shows worth mentioning tonight. That said, One Percent Productions yesterday announced a handful of new shows in the coming months. The national touring shows on my radar:
Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks Feb. 16 at The Waiting Room with Tyvek.
Russian Circles Feb. 28 at The Waiting Room
Marshall Crenshaw March 2 at The Waiting Room
Neutral Milk Hotel March 29 at Sokol Aud (long sold out)
St. Vincent April 1 at Sokol Auditorium
Okkervil River April 7 at The Slowdown
Tokyo Police Club April 19 at The Slowdown
The Black Lips April 28 at The Waiting Room
I was all set to whine about the lack of shows this winter, but the above is an impressive list — at least two don’t-miss shows per month through April. Unfortunately Friday’s Califone show at The Slowdown is the only thing happening from a national indie show standpoint until that Malkmus show in mid February. Looks like we’ll have to soak in some locals over the coming weeks.

Speaking of music events, tonight’s Record Club at the Shop @ Saddle Creek features Bob Dylan’s seminal 1975 release Blood on the Tracks. Record Club is a chance for folks to get together and listen to an album in its entirety, then discuss it afterward. Fun! The needle drops at 7 p.m. More info here.
