OEAA crosses the river; Dead Meadow tonight; Bare Wires Sunday…

Category: Blog — @ 5:50 pm April 9, 2010

The OEAA’s Spring Showcase on tonight in five venues on the 100 block of Broadway in Council Bluffs. So where is that exactly? It’s apparently near where Kanesville and Broadway meet near downtown CB. For example, here’s where the Fiddlin’ Monkey is on Google Maps. Consider it an adventure. A $10 cover gets you in the doors of all five venues. The full band listing and schedule is here: http://www.oea-awards.com/ I know only three of the performers. Strangely, no set runs past 1 a.m. — what’s the point of hosting this in CB if you can’t take advantage of the 2 a.m. closing time (which we’ll be getting here in Omaha, eventually)?

Also happening tonight, Matador band Dead Meadow is down at Slowdown Jr. with Imaad Wasif and Life of a Scarecrow. 9 p.m. $10.

Tomorrow there’s an all-afternoon homeless benefit punk festival at The Hole featuring 13 bands. Full schedule is here. Show starts at 2 p.m. Admission is $10, or $5 with a can of food.

Nathaniel Rateliff (Born in the Flood) opens for Megafaun and Breathe Owl Breathe at The Waiting Room. $10, 9 p.m.

And then, Sunday, Bare Wires plays at The Barley Street Tavern with Saudi Arabia (formerly The Dinks) and Cheap Smokes. $5, 9 p.m.
