See Through Dresses at Maha Music Festival in 2016. The band kicks off Femme Fest Friday night at The Waiting Room.

I’m getting a jump on the weekend because I’ll be out of town when all this is going down. Needless to say, reception may be spotty at ol’ Lazy-i Central for the next few days. Bear with me, folks.

Tonight (Thursday) at The Slowdown Gloom Balloon celebrates the release of their new LP Drying the Eyes of the Goddess of Gloom, Underneath the Stars and the Moon. If’n you don’t know, the band is fronted by Patrick Tape Fleming from Poison Control Center. Says Patrick: “This album is an audacious attempt to mount a fully orchestrated, classically minded conceptual work within the context of contemporary indie rock. Both forward-thinking and backward-minded, a collision of bygone musical styles and one of the most ambitious records you are likely to hear this year.” Christopher the Conquered and Middle Folk open the show. $10, 8 p.m.

I’m told there’s also a free listening party at Hi-Fi House from 3 to 5 p.m.

Also tonight at Film Streams it’s the Omaha premiere of the debut feature film from Tim Kasher, No Resolution. Kasher talked briefly about the film in this interview / profile I wrote for The Reader last May.

About the film, Kasher said: “I’m also going to put it out on places you expect, like iTunes and Amazon, but it’s all kind of just me doing it, you know? I’m kind of making up the rules as I go.” And, he’d prefer that people see his movie in a group setting rather than a living room. “I’m still old school in the sense that I really love the idea of a captive audience at a theater or gallery. It really can affect and shape how you experience the movie.”

For this screening, Kasher will introduce the film and do a brief musical performance, followed by the film and a post-show Q&A. Tix are $16 gen; $14 for students, and $12 for Film Streams members like me. I’m sorry I’m gonna miss this! You shouldn’t. Starts at 7 p.m. Tickets available right here.

The only thing on the radar for this weekend is the third annual Femme Fest in Benson. The rules: You have to have at least one female member in your band to participate. It’s a celebration of women in music. Cost is $10 per night, which gets you into all the venues.
