And the biggest show of the weekend is at (surprise) O’Leaver’s tonight. It’s the return/reunion of Lincoln band Eagle Seagull. Many (most) of us thought we’d never see it happen, but Eli Mardock is pulling together some of the peeps that made up that band, including Ian Aeillo, Eric Nyffeler and Carrie Mardock, for a celebration of the band’s 10 year anniversary. Also on the bill are Little Brazil and So-So Sailors. Any one of these three bands could pack O’Leaver’s. All three, well, we might see a hold-out line at the club tonight. $5, 9:30 p.m.
Also tonight, See Through Dresses headlines at The Waiting Room with Dan Mariska & the Boys Choir and Post Verse. $8, 9 p.m.
Over at The Brothers Lounge, red-hot band High Up plays with Lineman’s Rodeo. $5, 10 p.m.
And finally tonight downtown at House of Loom, //FITNESS #000009 is happening with DJ sets from Todd Fink, Kethro, Teetah and Fathr^. It’s free and starts at 9
Tomorrow (Saturday) Almost Music in Benson celebrates its 2-year anniversary with a mini music festival. Here’s the line-up:
4-4:45 — Vegetable Deluxe
4:45-5:30 — Jim Schroeder
5:30-6:15 — Jessica Errett
6:15-7 — Stop Having Children (Simon Joyner, David Kenneth Nance, Mike Marasco, and Dis Cretin)
7-7:45 — Pro-Magnum
7:45-8:15 — Kyleheinz Stockjessen
Almost Musicfest is not only free, but used records will be 15 percent off and new vinyl will be 10 percent off. Save!
Saturday night, Mitch Gettman hosts his CD release show at Slowdown Jr. Gettman’s last record, Stop Living Like It’s the End of the World, was one of the best local releases of 2014. Can he top it with Dichotomy? Opening is Custom Catacombs and Charlie Alley. $5, 9 p.m.
Also Saturday night, alt-country band (whether they know it or not) Clarence Tilton headlines at Reverb Lounge. Their self-titled debut album is on rotation on my iPhone. But I have yet to see them live. This might be my chance. Opening is Tucker Hill Citizens Brigade. $7, 9 p.m.
O’Leaver’s has a special “tap event” out in their beer garden on Saturday that will run into the evening, giving you plenty of time to get lubed up for the evening’s music, Des Moines’ The Vahnevants, Sean Pratt & The Sweats and indie rock dudes Uh Oh (I dig their new EP). $5, 9:30 p.m.
If that weren’t enough local metal dude Big Al celebrates his birthday at the Barley Street with Dereck Higgins and Army of 2600, not to mention a performance by Big Al Band. 9 p.m., free.
That’s all I got. If I missed your show, put it in the comments section. Have a great weekend!
