I’m quoted in a Daily Nebraskan article regarding Lincoln Invasion. You can read it here. I suspect there will be tons of press about this weekend’s festival. And you’ll be able to read my take on Lincoln Invasion right here in tomorrow’s column.

Looks like Saddle Creek has finally released the new Beep Beep video. Check it out here. It’s as weird as you’d hope and expect it to be. What’s going on with this band? I’m told that bassist Darren Keen no longer is a Beeper.

Cursive also has a new video online for “I Couldn’t Love You More,” right here.

Does it still make sense to make videos these days? I guess probably more so in the past few years with the advent of YouTube.

Mike Fratt dropped me and the rest of Omaha’s music journalism establishment an e-mail yesterday announcing that Homer’s is now celebrating “Vinyl Saturdays” every third Saturday of the month, starting this Saturday. The promotion promises “a new monthly unveiling of limited special vinyl pieces.” This month’s offerings include limited edition vinyl by Wilco, Scarlett Johansson/Pete Yorn and Green Day. Homer’s does have a shit-ton of vinyl these days. Check it out.

Lez Zeppelin is tonight at The Waiting Room. The name sez it all. Other than The Song Remains the Same, the only Zeppelin “tribute” band that I’ve ventured to see is good ol’ Dread Zeppelin, featuring Elvis impersonator Tortelvis and a boxing ring. Fun stuff at the old Ranch Bowl. That band eventually got signed by Miles Copeland and IRS Records (Un-Led-Ed), and according to Wikipedia, is still touring today, somewhere. Will there be a boxing ring tonight at TWR? I hope so. Find out. $12, 9 p.m.
