House show revival: Dignan Porch tonight…

There is a fantastic show going on tonight but it’s not at any of the primary Omaha rock venues. London-based indie-pop band Dignan Porch is playing at, of all places, Middle House. Some of you might remember this “venue” by its past names, including Jerk Store, Gunboat and Hotel Frank. It’s that famous apartment on 38th and Farnam across from The Brothers Lounge.

The band’s latest album, Nothing Bad Will Ever Happen (Captured Tracks, 2012), has been in rotation on my iPhone for a couple months. Fantastic stuff. This is a Slowburn Production, and for the life of me, I don’t know why they didn’t try to host this at a regular venue. I know a few people who would have loved to have gone. Maybe Dignan requested this be a house show? Who knows.

Hear Nebraska has an interview with the band (right here), but didn’t provide any actual gig info. Never fear, the gig details are in Facebook, here. Show starts at 9 and cover is $5. Opener is Adult Films and a “surprise guest” (according to AF).
