The weekend (briefly)…

Category: Blog — @ 2:07 pm February 3, 2006

I’m feeling a bit under the weather today, which is good timing because a glance at the usual calendars shows there ain’t nothing going on tonight anyway. Hopefully I’ll be feeling better by tomorrow, when The Third Men, Anonymous American and Tomato a Day play at O’Leaver’s. This is something of a homecoming for Anonymous American, who hasn’t played at O’Leaver’s in a long time. $5, 9:30 p.m. If you’re in Lincoln Saturday night, Criteria, Ideal Cleaners and Little Brazil are playing at Duffy’s. Surprisingly, this show also is just $5 and starts at 9:30 p.m.

Maybe the most noteworthy show of the weekend is Saturday night at Sokol Underground. The headliner is Back When, a metal band that plays dark, doomed lullabies sung by a growling Jonathan Tvrdik (who I believe has toured as part of Statistics). What I hear on their myspace page reminds me of current-day Swans but with lots more screaming. Opening are bands Noah’s Ark Was A Spaceship, Paria and Father, a noise-metal project that includes Dapose and Clark Baechle of The Faint. Dapose also has been busy recording his side project, Precious Metal, with Joel Petersen. $7, 9 p.m.

And finally, at The 49’r Saturday night you’ll have a chance to bid Wichita-bound Reagan Roeder adieu at a going-away show that features Justin Lamoureaux, Steve Bartolomei (Mal Madrigal), Brad Hoshaw, Kyle Harvey and Roeder himself. Should be a drunken mess.
