Tonight: Gris Gris/The Terminals at The 49’r, the rest of the weekend…

Category: Blog — @ 12:37 pm July 21, 2006

The last time Gris Gris came through Omaha I arrived at the venue just in time to catch their last song, and have been slapping myself for it ever since. This trippy Oakland band records for indie powerhouse Birdman Records (Twilight Singers, The Warlocks, Paula Frazer). Their music is a slice of ’60s psych reminiscent of Aftermath-era Stones. Cool. Check out their myspace. Opening is the always-entertaining Terminals. $5, 10 p.m. Terminals’ keyboardist Dave Goldberg tells me that his recent tour of duty with Thor (along with Steve Jacobs (Diabolic Possession and The Filthy Few) and Jeff Decker) was so well-liked by the Norse God that he’s asked them to join him on an upcoming tour. Nice. Wish I would have caught that show… but it sounds like there’s a good chance that they’ll be coming through Omaha again soon.

Tomorrow night, Outlaw con Bandana is at O’Leaver’s with Ed Gray and Peter and the Wolf. Mr. Gray, who hails from Iowa City, wrote to say that he’s got a 7-inch out on Unread Records and has a new one coming out in the fall “that was done in O-town last year w/ Joyner, Deden, McManus, Tulis, etc.etc.” Check out his myspace. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Also Saturday night, Landing on the Moon is opening for local band Go! Motion (their CD release show) at Sokol Underground. $7, 9 p.m.

That’s all I got. Don’t forget to swing by Horsemen’s Park for the annual track meet (Live racing! Real horses! Big bucks!).
