Little Brazil at Reverb Lounge, May 1, 2015. The band plays tonight at O’Leaver’s.

by Tim McMahan,

You know spring is on the way when O’Leaver’s opens the massive beer garden out back. Thus is the case this weekend, when O’Leaver’s hosts a couple red hot shows.

Tonight it’s the return of Little Brazil. I’m told by LB frontman Landon Hedges that the band will be rolling out all new tunes for tonight’s set, including a couple they’ve never played live before. The band is sandwiched in a bill that includes opener Lonely Estates and headliner, Chicago’s Cloudstomper. $5, 9:30 p.m.

It’s back to O’Leaver’s tomorrow night (Saturday) for LA duo Dirty Dishes, whose debut, Guilty, was released on Exploding in Sound records last year. The band says its influences include My Bloody Valentine, Radiohead, Sonic Youth, Chavez, Bjork and Autolux. Omaha acts Misers and Briner open the show. 9:30, $5.

Saturday also has Uh Oh opening for SideOneDummy punkers Meat Wave at Reverb Lounge. $10 Adv./$12 DOS. 9 p.m.

Finally Sunday The Pines headlines at Reverb Lounge. Their new album Above the Prairie, was released a couple weeks ago on Red House Records. Local favorites Clarence Tilton opens. Tix are $10 Adv./$12 DOS. Show starts at 9.

That’s all I got. If I missed your show, put it in the comments section. Have a great weekend.
