Weird weekend for music. Or maybe it just seems that way… Still, there’s a lot to choose from.
Junkstock is going on way out in West Yahoo Omaha. Lots of folksters playing, including good ol’ Brad Hoshaw. Get the details here. Runs today through Sunday.
Reverb is hosting an electro-dance party tonight with Elektra artist Junior Prom. JP is the New York electro-dance duo of Mark Solomich and Erik Ratensperger. Very poppy, very mainstream. I could see this one boiling over into the main bar (Jim, better just swing those doors open). Opening is local EDM duo Linear Symmetry. $10, 9 p.m.
Also tonight The Barley Street is hosting a Neil Young tribute. $5, 9 p.m.
And yes, Lincoln Calling continues all weekend. Details, sched at lincolncalling.com
Tomorrow night (Saturday) it’s an evening of “Punkwave” at The Sydney featuring some of your favorite punkwave artists including Digital Leather, The Hussy and Dumb Beach. And joining them, all the way from Memphis, is Manatees. $7. 9 p.m.
Also Saturday night Matt Whipkey and his band take their turn on the new Reverb stage. Joining them are The Brigadiers. $7, 9 p.m.
Down at Slowdown Jr. shimmering indie rockers King Washington headline. Joining them are Oketo , Lot Walks and Pretty Healthy. $6, 8:30 p.m.
That’s what I got. If I missed your gig, put it in the comments section. Have a good weekend.
