Feature Interview: Oui Bandits; The Stay Awake, Derrick Higgins tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 8:49 pm December 18, 2008

Just placed online, an interview with the incomparable Oui Bandits (story here). This Sunday night at Slowdown Jr., the guys are celebrating the release of their vinyl-only debut, Mattress in the Afternoon, on I’m Drinking This Records, the used-to-be-cassette-only label that’s released tapes by a ton of locals including Talking Mountain, Flamboyant Gods, Flowers Forever, even Tilly and the Wall. Now they’re branching out to vinyl. Can CDs be far behind? Well, as I mention in the story, every copy of Mattress… comes with a CDR (I’m surprised that it didn’t also come with a cassette copy). Check it out.

Barring a major ice storm, there are some good shows going on tonight:

At The Waiting Room, noise-punk-math band The Stay Awake take the stage with fellow noise-punkers Techlepathy. 9 p.m., $7. Meanwhile, just down the block at The Barley St. Tavern, Derrick Higgins Band headlines a show that features Omaha escapees Drakes Hotel and Sleep Said the Monster, $5, 9 p.m. Finally, down at Slowdown Jr., three bands that I’ve never heard of — Theanti, Kate Davis and Uncle Ghost — play a show with Omaha darlings Honeybee. $7, 9 p.m.
