Onto the weekend…

Tonight at The Slowdown Omaha hip-hop posse M34N STR33T (pronounced Mean Street) celebrates the release of their debut full-length Mutants of Omaha.

As member Conny Franko says, “Please do NOT miss this event! This is our heart and souls, blood and sweat, tears and cans of Modelo Especial USA. The project is Midtown, it’s Sam’s Food and Liquor, it’s Cass Gas, it’s Brothers lounge, it’s Cali Bar, it’s for any street north and south of Dodge.”

Joining them will be BOTH, Borealis, and Sean Pratt & The Sweats. $10, 9 p.m. More info here.

Also tonight, brand new band Nanahara makes its stage debut at fabulous O’Leaver’s. According to their Facebook page, “Nanahara originates from Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska. Consisting of members of The Sound of Rails and Sideshow, they joined together to form an instrumental band that reflect their favorite music from today and yesterday.” Members are Eric Ernst, Chris Palmquist and Rich Higgins. Also on the bill are Dirty Talker and Post Verse. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Tomorrow night (Saturday) it’s back to O’Leaver’s for Simon Joyner and the Ghosts with The Subtropics. Both bands are headed out to the West Coast on tour and need your money to cover expenses. $5, 9:30 p.m. And check out Wednesday’s Lazy-i blog post to find out how you can help the tour and get some fine tunage in exchange.
