The Best of 2005 content deadline TODAY; last weekend, BHTatM’s tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 12:02 pm January 16, 2006

Today is the last day you can enter to win a copy of the Lazy-i Best of 2005 Compilation CD. The last day! I’ve been told that this year’s collection is among the best of the series, which goes all the way back to 1994 (Just imagine what that cassette could fetch on ebay…). Tracks include songs by Of Montreal, Eagle*Seagull, Iron & Wine, Mercy Rule, Teenage Fanclub, Okkervil River, Sufjan Stevens, Maria Taylor, Orenda Fink, My Morning Jacket, Spoon and more. The full track listing is right here. To enter, send an e-mail to me ( with your name and mailing address. Your odds of winning have never been better. I’ll announce the winners in tomorrow’s blog entry.

I only hit one show this weekend — the Hot Shops Lincoln artist/Eagle*Seagull shindig. They must have been pleased with the draw — very crowded indeed. The sound was what you’d expect in an artspace, however — very boomy — and the band was playing on the floor, which means you couldn’t see them. So while I like Eagle*Seagull, bad sound and nothing to see but people’s backs drove me away after only a couple songs. Never fear, though, because Eagle*Seagull will be playing in Omaha again Jan. 28 on a showcase the features Clair De Lune, Landing on the Moon and Ghosty.

Tonight is a big-ticket show at Sokol Auditorium — Big Head Todd and the Monsters with The Nadas. I remember BHTatM from their 1993 alt-rock hit “Bittersweet” off the Sister Sweetly album. I have no idea what they’ve been up to since. Nor do I know anything about The Nadas other than they sound like The BoDeans and have a similar following. $25, 8 p.m.
