I spent the weekend nursing a rather vicious head cold, which kept me away from the clubs and the various CD/album release shows. My continued recovery also will keep me out of Slowdown Jr. tonight when singer/songwriter Mitch Gettman has his going-away show, as he’s moving to Chicago. Also on the bill are Matt Cox and Tara Vaughan. $5, 9 p.m.

Look for a rather large tribute in this week’s issue of The Reader to Dave Sink, who died last Thursday. Remembrances are coming in from all over. If you don’t know who Dave was or the roll he played in the Omaha music scene, you will after reading Thursday’s Reader.

  • R.I.P. Dave Sink. 🙁
    You were one of the things I’ve missed most about Omaha for the past 13 years I’ve been away….
