An early Lincoln Calling weekend…

Category: Blog — @ 12:29 pm August 11, 2006

Apologies to Rent Money Big for missing their show last night at O’Leaver’s. I fully intended to come, but figured it might not look too cool to be sitting at the bar with wads of toilet paper sticking out my nose. My allergies are slowly, surely killing me. That said, I soldier on as the weekend approaches, but judging by the looks of things, all the very hot shows will involve a trip to the Star City for a three-day line-up that could rival their annual Lincoln Calling fest next month.

Starting with tonight: Of Montreal takes the stage at Knickerbockers with The Minders. $10, 9 p.m. But waitaminit, that’s not the only hot show of the night. Neva Dinova frontman Jake Bellows is playing at O’Leaver’s with Madison Wisconsin superstar Charlemagne. If you like Neva, you’ll love this band. This will be a big show (look for the guy with toilet paper sticking out of his nose and say hello).

Tomorrow night at Knickerbockers, the return of Ladyhawk with Coke Dares and Spring Gun. Ladyhawk just played at Sokol July 25 and I missed it (out of town). Wish I hadn’t. Their new disc on Jagjaguwar has been burning up my i-Pod for the past few weeks. $8, 9 p.m. Cross town (or more like, across a few streets) in Lincoln Eagle*Seagull is playing at Duffy’s with The Choral Sea and Jumbling Towers. What else? Blood Cow is tearing it up over in CB at a place called Goofy’s (807 S. 21st St.). $5, 9 p.m.

Finally, Sunday night, again in Lincoln at Duffy’s, The Willowz take the stage with Rent Money Big and Wires on Fire. Make the trip down to Husker town this weekend and catch a show. It’s only 50 miles away.
