Here we go.

Tonight at fabulous O’Leaver’s it’s a celebration of the release of The Lupines’ debut EP, Over the Moon (Speed! Nebraska Records). The six-song CD features John Ziegler (ex Brimstone Howl) on vocals/guitar, along with Javid Dabestani, drums; Mike Friedman, lead guitar, and Mike Tulis, bass. If you dug Brimstone’s brand of garage rock/punk, you’ll love this one just as much. Read the Hear Nebraska interview with Mr. Ziegler himself. Opening is Bullet Proof Hearts. $5, 9:30 p.m. Check out out opening track “Everlasting Man,” below:
