There no indie happening at the “big two” Omaha venues, which means it looks like we’re all in for a double-dip of O’Leaver’s splendor this weekend.

Tonight at O’Leaver’s Field Club celebrates the release of its new EP, Best Friends. The Omaha six-piece’s style falls somewhere between The Sundays and The Cranberries — smooth, lilting, pretty indie pop. Check it out below. Also on the bill is Lincoln’s Guilty Is the Bear and Lansing, Michigan band Doug Mains and the City Folk. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Then tomorrow night The Brigadiers (Clint Schnase (ex-Cursive), drums; Shane Lamson, guitar, vocals; Mark Weber (ex-Box), lead guitar, vocals; and Vic Padios (ex-Calico, ex-Gymnastics), bass, vocals) return to O’Leaver’s with EVERYONE’s favorite post-punk four-piece, Well Aimed Arrows. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Am I missing anything good? Put it in the comments section. Have a fantastic weekend…
