Before we get to the music, Benson is hosting its first First Friday (BFF) event this evening. It’s basically an artists’ open house at different locations along Maple St. A good rundown of participating Benson businesses is online here. I think there will be some music associated with BFF, but mostly of the hippie variety.

Now back to regular Lazy-i programming:

Tonight at O’Leaver’s it’s Bullet Proof Hearts (guitarist/vocalist Kevin Moran (Nuns With Guns, The Criminals, New Ave. Kings), drummer Mark Blackman (No Heroes, Apathy, Nuns With Guns, Bad Luck Charm) bassist Tammy Gun (Chicken Hawks, Blue Collar Bravado, Vermins, Take Agent) and guitarist Aaron Schmitz (The Rundowns, The Upsets)) take the stage with Chromafrost (Lincoln Dickison and Co.) and Des Moines band North of Grand. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Meanwhile, over at The Side Door Lounge (3530 Leavenworth) it’s All Young Girls are Machine Guns with Skypiper, In Love and Field Club. And I believe this one is free. Starts at 9 p.m.

Tomorrow night, it’s the long-awaited return of Omaha legends The Sons of O’Leaver’s. The Sons of… is a veritable supergroup consisting of Kelly Maxwell, Mike Loftus, Mike Tulis and Matt Rutledge. You can read about them circa this rare 2004 interview, but you’re better off just going to the show, which also features Lincoln proto-punkers Ideal Cleaners. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Also Saturday night, The Brothers Lounge continues to host live music, this time with Baby Tears, Blind Shake and New Lungs. No idea on the cover charge, but probably around $5. Brothers shows usually start around 10.

Which brings us to Sunday night and alt folkers Langhorne Slim & The Law at The Waiting Room. No opener is listed, which is kind of weird. 9 p.m. $10.
