Weekend Update…

Category: Blog — @ 12:23 pm April 8, 2005

The shows ahead for this weekend worth checking out:

— Tonight: Anonymous American, Five Story Fall, Kyle Harvey at Arthur’s, 80th & Dodge. Growing up, Arthur’s was the meat market for the older crowd — that meant scoping-out 30-ish tail, back in the day when 30 seemed so old. Anyway, it’s been brought to my attention that this will be the last original live music show for Arthur’s. $5, 9:30.

— Saturday: The Monroes, The Diplomats of Solid Sound, The Spring Hill Mine Disaster at The 49’r. They’re calling the showcase “Estrus vs. Speed Nebraska! Episode III: Revenge of the Scythe” and for good reason. Monroes are on Speed! while The Diplomats have a new one coming out on Estrus. No pricing information for this one, but it’ll probably be $5 and start around 10. More details here.

— Saturday: VHS or Beta, Electric Six at Sokol Underground. A night of guitar-fueled disco rock a la Duran Duran. $10, 9 p.m.

— Saturday: If you’re heading east, you might want to check out The Street Urchins with Axes to the Sky and Filthy Few at Mike’s Place, 162 W Broadway in beautiful Council Bluffs. I’ve been told by a couple folks who’ve played at Mike’s that it’s actually a pretty decent venue. $5, 9 p.m.

— Sunday: Okkervil River, Kite Pilot, Fizzle Like a Flood at O’Leaver’s. Needless to say, the “show of the weekend,” and it’s only $5.
