The latest Lazy-i Podcast is below. Give it a listen. I sound less womanly this time (but no less stupid). By the way, someone asked who the band is playing at the end of the podcast while I’m reading the list of upcoming weekend shows — that’s Underwater Dream Machine a.k.a. Bret Vovk from his overlooked (but not by me) 2012 album A Very Lonely Dream About Space, which is still available for download at this Bandcamp page. Check it out, and see Vovk play at tonight’s fundraiser at the Barley Street (more info below).

Speaking of SoundCloud, Simon Joyner debuted another new song off his upcoming album, Grass, Branch & Bone, headed for release on Woodsist Records. Simon’s publicist just sent me an email three days ago saying the album comes out March 9, but this SoundCloud page says it doesn’t come out until March 31. If I find out which is right, I’ll pass the info along. In the meantime, check out the track. Is it me or has Joyner become a fantastic singer vs. those early, wonky years?


The weekend starts tonight as former Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland headlines with his backing band The Wildabouts at The Waiting Room. Opening are The Last Internationale & Stocklyn. $25 today, $27 Thursday.

Also tonight is a fundraiser for Ashley and Michael Trenhaile at The Barley Street Tavern. Michael, a member of the Donefits, suffered a debilitating brain hemorrhage and money raised at the show will help with medical and family expenses. Among the bands performing are Loose Cannon, Backwater Spawn, The Fergesens, Bret Vovk and more. The show starts at 9 and donations will be taken at the door.

And over at Slowdown Jr., Omaha hip-hop act BOTH plays with Dream House, ROTHSTEEN, Zay Gaines, PG. $7, 9 p.m.
