Tim Wildsmith tonight; Filter Kings, Well-Aimed Arrows Saturday…

Category: Blog — @ 6:58 pm February 19, 2010

In addition to having a large fanbase, Tim Wildsmith has a supporter in Kevin Coffey of the Omaha World-Herald. Kevin has been following Wildsmith’s album project for months in the OWH, and that’s not something to sniff at. As Matt Whipkey once told me (and I’m paraphrasing here): “It’s nice to get a write-up in The Reader, but a write-up in the Omaha World-Herald, I mean, my family reads The World-Herald.” He’s right. Coffey’s latest piece on Wildsmith (here) is in support of tonight’s CD release show at The Waiting Room (Chris Aponik’s take on Wildsmith in The Reader is here). I’ve never seen Wildsmith perform before, and the only music of his I’ve heard was online (there’s two tracks linked from that OWH article). So, maybe tonight, eh? Opening is two performers I’ve never heard of: Levi Weaver and Charn. $8, 9 p.m.

Actually, for $5 I can see Cat Island, Cave Kids and If Only He Had the Power at The Sydney. I like that name: Cat Island. That one starts at 9 also.

Saturday night, The Filter Kings headline a show at The Waiting Room with Ground Tyrants, Brave Captain (a fIRHOSE tribute band) and Two Drag Club. $7, 9 p.m.

Also Saturday night, Well-Aimed Arrows (ex-Protoculture) is playing at O’Leaver’s with One to Three for Band and Everyday/Everynight. $5, 9:30 p.m.

The Hole (formerly the Diamond Bar) has punk shows slated for both Friday and Saturday starting at 7 p.m. and costing $5. Tonight’s six-band bill features Bent Left from Kansas City and Bandit Sound. Saturday night’s show features Iowa’s Boy Meets World and Eastern Turkish. These shows are all-ages, and there’s no booze for sale, period.

Sunday night former Lemonhead Evan Dando is at The Waiting Room. Adam Hawkins (and not his full band It’s True) is opening. $13, 9 p.m.
