Catching up on Netflix…

by Tim McMahan,

One good thing about not having any touring indie rock bands playing in Omaha week after week — I’m catching up on my Netflix cue.

I’m up to episode 5 of Making a Murderer (and dreading the ending — how does something like this happen in our country?), and will be watching Mozart in the Jungle on Amazon Prime.

Needless to say, there are no touring indie bands coming through town again this weekend. In fact, I see nothing substantial on the horizon until the end of the month and into February.

That doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to do this weekend.

Tonight at fabulous O’Leaver’s the infamous Bloodcow returns. Expect much mayhem and the occasional Hail Xenu! Agronomo featuring Dereck Higgins opens the evening and the Big Al Band headlines. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Over at Barley Street Tavern Uh Oh headlines with Can’t Won’t, Getchasum and A Fight Within the Mastersleep. $5, 9 p.m.

Kansas City emo band SeaKings headlines at Reverb Lounge with Relax, It’s Science and No Getter. $5, 9 p.m.

And The Waiting Room is hosting a David Bowie tribute tonight performed by Bennie and the Gents. The Beatseekers opens. $8, 9 p.m.

Tomorrow night (Saturday) Montee Men take over the O’Leaver’s stage. With Jump the Tiger and The Brigadiers. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Also Saturday night, Milk Run is hosting a benefit for the Omaha Zine Fest, an event slated for March 12.  “Help us raise funds to offset the cost for local and regional zinesters to come to town and showcase their work.” Where does one find these ‘zines? Anyway, performing Saturday night are Bien Fang, Rogue Moon, Sean Pratt and the Sweats and Razors. $5 donation suggested. Show starts at 9:30.

That’s all I got. If I missed your show, put it in the comments section. Have a great weekend.
