The Reader is trying to kill me; An Iris Pattern, faux-Conor tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 5:55 pm July 10, 2006

This is the second time that The Reader has dropped a bomb on me. “That story you’re doing on Cursive… we’re thinking cover.” There goes my weekend. I’m getting burned out, dudes. Regardless, it’s done and it’ll be online Wednesday morning, all 2,500 words of it. Meanwhile, tonight, for those of you like me who missed An Iris Pattern on Saturday night here’s your chance to see them again, this time at O’Leaver’s with In Praise of Folly and Shipwreck. $5, 9:30 p.m. Meanwhile, way across town at The Rock (225 South Washington, Papillion), everyone’s favorite Conor Oberst impersonator, An Angle, is playing a gig with three bands I’m unfamiliar with — Controlling the Famous, Go!Motion (not The GO! Team) and Push to Talk. When An Angle first emerged a few years ago, their Bright Eyes schtick was like vaudeville – so aped that people had to hear it to believe it. Judging from their myspace page, little has changed. Well, they say imitation is the greatest form of flattery. Maybe Conor will swing by and see for himself… $8, 8 p.m.
