In the Better-Late-Than-Never Department…

Tonight at The Waiting Room it’s the official release show for the motion picture soundtrack to the film Flyover Country.  While I was unwilling to weigh in with an opinion of the film in this write-up in The Reader, I will tell you that my favorite part of this film is its soundtrack, specifically the work of legendary Omaha musician Dereck Higgins.  Dereck provided the primary score, which is upbeat, moody, an experience in itself.

But in addition to Dereck, the soundtrack features the following songs and artists, making the Flyover Country soundtrack one of the better local music comps I’ve heard in a long time:

“Give Me Light” BLUEBIRD; “Enzymes” DIGITAL LEATHER; “Shine” DOMESTICA; “Airplane Over Me” SUZY DREAMER & HER NIGHTMARES; “Try Too Hard” MITCH GETTMAN; “Hanging Out” GREEN TREES; “Cruel Heart” THE KARMA LOGS; “Details” LONELY ESTATES; “The House” LOW HORSE; “Can’t Get Off That Train” MEZCAL BROTHERS; “Blue View” SPIKE NELSON; “Just You Wait” THE RENFIELDS; “Drinkin Boots” ROCK PAPER DYNAMITE; “Do What You Feel” EVAN SCOTT; “Symptoms” THE SEEN; “Oh Lord” SNAKE ISLAND; “Till Death” TARA VAUGHAN

According to One Percent Productions, tonight’s album release show will feature performances by Dereck Higgins, Snake Island, Blue Bird, Rock Paper Dynamite, Lonely Estates “and more.” $7, 8 p.m.

But that’s not the only thing happening tonight. Down at Slowdown Jr., New Jersey punkers Screaming Females (Don Giovanni Records) headlines a show with one of my favorite new local bands, Gordon. $10, 9 p.m.

Finally, over at fabulous O’Leaver’s Denver party-electro-spazz-funtime-party rockers The Photo Atlas returns with John Klemmensen and The Party and The Knew. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Let the weekend begin a day early, I say…
