Every show is local; It’s True tomorrow…

Category: Blog — @ 6:41 pm February 13, 2009

For whatever reason, Fu*ked up canceled their show last night. You would have known that before you went out had you been “following” me on Twitter or read my webboard. And you’d figure there’s a good chance for even more cancellations tonight, but I doubt it. Every show is a local show, and let’s be honest, it’s only supposed to be six or eight inches. It is, after all, winter.

So the question becomes where would you want to be on a snowy night in Omaha? Top of the list may be The 49’r, where The Filter Kings are playing with The Killigans and Making Movies. Few bars are as ski-lodge cozy as the Niner on snowy nights. The bar’s website is showing an 8 p.m. start time, but no word on the cover.

There’s a benefit show down at The Bemis Underground featuring a slew of Slumber Party Records bands including Capgun Coup, Bear Country and Honeybee, along with the toughest trio in Omaha, Box Elders. Tickets are $13 for non-members, $7 for members, and the show starts at 9. For more info, go to bemiscenter.org.

Over at O’Leaver’s, Speed! Nebraska recording artist The Third Men is playing with No Blood Orphan. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Saddle Creek Bar is going punk with crazy-ass Officially Terminated, ska-boys Eastern Turkish and classic ’80s thrashers Cordial Spew. $5, 9 p.m.

Sarah Benck and The Robbers are playing their last show under that moniker tonight at Slowdown Jr. with Bonne Finken and The Ground Tyrants. $7, 9 p.m.

Reagan and the Rayguns are playing at The Waiting Room tonight with Jessica Errett Band and Vago. $7, 9 p.m.

Black Squirrels, Goodbye Sunday and Tsumi are at Barley Street. $4, 9 p.m.

Valentine’s Day (Saturday) is highlighted by the It’s True CD release show at The Barley Street Tavern with Cat Island (also celebrating a CD release on Slo-Fi), Kyle & Kat, Ben Seiff and John Klemmensen. $5, 9 p.m.

If I hear of cancellations, I’ll pass them on via Twitter.
