This week’s column in The Reader is last week’s blog entry about the Civic Auditorium and The CLink, with some slight modifications. You can read it in this week’s issue of The Reader or online right here.

Not much else is going on news-wise as everyone (myself included) gets ready for SXSW. We’ll be seeing a few bands play through Omaha on their way to Austin. I’ll post those gigs before they happen.

Speaking of gigs, there’s yet another Johnny Cash Tribute night, this time being held at The Barley Street Tavern tonight. You can see the full line-up here. The ring of fire gets lit at 9 p.m. and the cover is $5.

Also tonight, Omaha C&W band The Electroliners opens for 24 Hour Cardlock at Slowdown Jr. Also on the bill are Vago and Banana Shadow. $5, 9 p.m.

Finally, it’s the next installment in Film Streams’ Hitchcock 9 Silents in Concert Repertory Series featuring the silent films of Alfred Hitchcock brought to life sonically by live musicians. Tonight it’s the 1927 film Easy Virtue featuring live music by Ben Brodin. Tickets are $12 general; $10 students and $8 for Film Streams members. The curtain rises at 7 p.m. Find out more here.
