Goodbye Omahype; The Hold Steady tonight (SOLD OUT)…

Category: Blog — @ 5:39 pm April 8, 2009

While glancing at my iGoogle page, I noticed that the Omahype RSS feed hadn’t been updated since mid-March. Updates to their blog have fallen off over the past few months, but never for this long. When I clicked on the link, here’s what I got:

hey guys we had fun
we’ll be around
thanks to anyone cool we met
thanks for the guest lists
thanks for the mp3s
love you forever

omahype @ gmail

And that, it appears, is that. All of Omahype’s archived blog entries are coming up 404 Not Found. The only way to find them is via (the Wayback machine), which goes back to Sept. 2007.

I loved Omahype. I know I’m not the only one that’s going to miss Andrew and Ian’s acerbic, enthusiastic takes on the local music scene, as well as their live reviews and leaked mp3 files. Over the course of a couple years, they managed to make a sizeable mark, providing a fresh, young perspective that this scene was — and is — sorely in need of. Thanks for the memories, guys. You know you can always come back online…

Tonight at The Slowdown it’s Minneapolis band The Hold Steady. If you didn’t get your tickets, you’re out of luck because it’s SOLD OUT.
