This weekend — Kite Pilot, Eagle*Seagull; Cougars Sunday…

Category: Blog — @ 12:19 pm May 5, 2006

You get two bands in one form or another two nights in a row! What more could you ask for? Tonight at O’Leaver’s Kite Pilot’s Austin Britton is doing a solo set with Eagle*Seagull’s Eli Murdock and Spring Gun’s Nate Mickish, who’s also playing with Kite Pilot these days. $5, 9:30 p.m. Then tomorrow night at Sokol Underground, it’s Kite Pilot’s CD release show with Eagle*Seagull and Spring Gun. Weird, in’it? That show is $7, 9 p.m.

Those who read the OWH daily might wonder why I overlooked that little nugget in Niz’ Kite Pilot story — the one about Austin moving to San Diego to attend seminary… Well, they talked about it at our interview, but I was asked to keep it out of the story. I guess the cat’s out of the bag now. Will the band survive? Sure, said the Hantons. The line-up will change, but Kite Pilot will go on some way, some how. That said, the band will likely record some new material before Austin heads to Cali, including a new song that will be unveiled Saturday that they say has received the biggest reaction of anything they’ve played before. Can’t wait to hear it.

Also Saturday night, Someday Never is hosting a show at O’Leaver’s featuring Lincoln’s The Killigans and Super Virgin. I’m told The Killigans do Irish-style punk rock in the vein of Flogging Molly. $5, 9 p.m.

Sunday sports two One Percent shows. Downtown at Sokol Underground it’s a death-metal bash featuring A Life Once Lost and Cephalic Carnage. Also on the five-band bill is Omaha’s Precious Metal. $8, 9 p.m. Meanwhile, over at O’Leaver’s, its Cougars with The Stay Awake. Cougars are often compared to The Jesus Lizard, which is pretty much on the mark, at least from what I’ve heard off their Go Kart release, Pillow Talk. Big and loud, with the occasional horn part slipped in here and there (according to AMG, they formed out of the remains of a Chicago ska band, a bit of information they should try to keep under their hat).
