Trying to think of some news to pass along… The new Prince records? Not feeling it. The new Thom Yorke? Nope. If you’re looking for something noisy and weird, you could do worse than checking out Useless Eaters LP Bleeding Moon (Castle Face). Modern, spiked garage rock. Or maybe not.
Busy Wednesday show-wise…
It’s a night of fine, fine rock at fabulous O’Leaver’s this evening. Been awhile since I’ve seen the crew from New Lungs. I believe D-Max and Co. have been working on some new stuff. Opener Athens band Little Gold plays gritty, harmonica-infused indie rock. They kind of remind me of Centro-matic crossed with D. Jr., but only because of lead guy Christian DeRoeck’s gravel voice. Check out the tracks below. Swamp Walk kicks it off at 9:30. $5.
Tonight at Slowdown Jr. Columbus Ohio band Saintseneca headlines. The band recorded their latest album, Dark Arc (ANTI-) with Mike Mogis at ARC Studios, just up the street from the new Panda Express. It’s straight-up acoustic indie rock. Pretty. Bloomington’s Busman’s Holiday and our very own McCarthy Trenching open. $10, 9 p.m.
I typically don’t write about Lincoln shows because, well, they’re in Lincoln. And I’m in Omaha. And the chances of me driving to Lincoln during the week (or even on the weekend) are pretty slim. If I had chutzpah, I would make the drive tonight for Beach Fossils at Vega. This show is really a Captured Tracks showcase featuring label mates Heavenly Beat and Axxa/Abraxas. Captured Tracks has it going on. You should check it out. $17, 9 p.m.
