So what’s going on tonight? I generally stay in on NYE — stay out of the line of fire, as it were. This year will likely be no exception. NYE is a bust for fans of good, original live music. Venues generally book cover bands in a desperate effort to draw the largest possible crowd of yahoos as possible. NYE, St. Patrick’s Day, Halloween — these are the harvest nights for bars. I can’t says as I blame them for booking cover bands. Plus, what decent touring band is going to play in Omaha on NYE? Anyway, have a safe and happy New Year’s Ever. See you in ’09.
