A few newsy items from the Googlenet:

An interesting interview was posted today on U.K. website with Alessi Laurent-Marke, the charming U.K. singer songwriter who briefly made Omaha her home a couple summers ago. Alessi talks about Nebraska, Saddle Creek and what she’s up to now — which includes a December tour of Germany with Neva Dinova’s Jake Bellows.

“…we became friends when I was in Nebraska and he’s the fellow that sings on ‘The Horse’ and does all the harmonies and backing vocals for that record and he’s a fantastic singer in his own right, and I thought it would be fun to play some solo stuff together in December, both here and in Germany,” said Alessi in her typical never-ending-run-on-sentence speaking style. “It will be the first time either of us have played in Germany, so it will be good to share it with a friend.” Read the whole interview here.

Tim Kasher’s latest stage apparel: Flip-flops, according to this review in the Las Vegas Weekly of Cursive’s Sin City show last Thursday. Critic Laura Davis raved about the performance that included Kasher making a dive into the mosh pit and the band playing a cover of “Get Me To the Church on Time.” Ironic? Only the insiders know for sure.

A kind reader posted on the webboard (here) that one of the opening bands for tonight’s Thursday concert at Slowdown — Young Widows — canceled (including the rest of the tour) for personal reasons. The band’s myspace page confirms this. The show will go on, however, with the headliner and the other openers — The Fall of Troy and La Dispute. Tickets are $20; show starts at 7:30.

Also tonight, Wovenhand, a project by former 16 Horsepower frontman David Eugene Edwards, plays at The Waiting Room with Fathr^ featuring Clark Baechle (drum), Dapose (electronics, guitar), James Cuato (saxophone) and Willy (saxophone). $10, 9 p.m.
