The Rentals re-return; Ladyfinger, Spring Gun, The Terminals tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 5:41 pm August 8, 2007

Just posted, an interview with Matt Sharp of The Rentals (read it here). Matt talks about how juggling between Weezer and The Rentals drove him to a solo career, the reinvention of The Rentals, and the band’s new EP, The Last Little Life. Sharp was such a good interview that I got enough to do an entire column beyond this feature, which will go online tomorrow.

Four, count ’em four shows are (probably) going on tonight, each worthy of your presence.

At The Waiting Room, Ladyfinger and Ideal Cleaners open for Philly band Mountain High, yet another rock band that sports two drummers. Ladyfinger is said to be unveiling some new songs and a new cover, while Ideal Cleaners is always strong. This being a Wednesday night, I’m afraid that Mountain High could get Omaha’d after these two fine bands. $7, 9 p.m.

Meanwhile, down at Slowdown Jr., it’s another two-drummer band, Spring Gun, opening for Page Francis and Bishop Allen. $8, 8 p.m.

Over at O’Leaver’s, The Terminals are opening for Ames Iowa grooversters Radio Moscow (Alive Records). $5, 9:30 p.m.

Finally, according to the SlamOmaha music calendar, No Blood Orphan is opening for Penang at The 49’r tonight. I was unable to confirm this show at either the Niner’s or NBO’s myspace pages. Go at your own risk.
