Landing on the Moon, Sarah Benck tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 12:23 pm August 18, 2006

It’s the weekend? Already?

Two shows to ponder this evening: Down at Sokol, the return of Landing on the Moon. I wrote a brief “calendar item” hyping the show for The Reader that went something like this:

Your first kiss, your first car, your first run-in with the law — these are the moments of your life. Omaha band Landing on the Moon wants you to help them celebrate a first of their own — completion of their first tour. Known for their modern, heartfelt take on traditional rock, LotM is as comfortable playing music reminiscent of “Love Hurts”-era Nazareth as they are slinging mathy, piano-propelled post-punk. Their 14-gig tour with Sidecho Records artist 1090 Club has taken them from Laramie and Billings all the way to The Knitting Factory in NYC, closing out at Sokol with Lawrence bands Ghosty (Future Farmer Records) and The Only Children (ex-members of The Anniversary). 9 p.m., $7.

Meanwhile at O’leaver’s, Sarah Benck and The Robbers headline a show with Des Moines twang rockers Why Make Clocks and Wisconsin folkie Noah Lekas, all for $5 at 9:30 p.m. Bring your cowboy hat.

Saturday’s looking like a Brother’s night. Sunday night, Kill Rock Stars artist Mika Miko are at O’Leaver’s with Eagle’s Blood and Noah’s Ark Was a Spaceship.
