Matt Whipkey at Hear Omaha in the Old Market, June 4, 2015. Whipkey headlines tonight at The Waiting Room.

by Tim McMahan,

It’s another in a series of all-local rock-show weekends to kick off 2016. No touring indie acts scheduled anywhere. Get used to it. It’s going to be a long, cold January.

Topping off this weekend’s festivities is Matt Whipkey at The Waiting Room. Not sure the configuration for this show, but hopefully he’ll have his band supporting him. The Hottman Sisters opens. $8, 9 p.m.

Also tonight, Low Long Signal headlines at Milk Run with Anthems, Alli and I, and The Jon Jerry Experiment. $5, 9 p.m.

And fabulous O’Leaver’s has Lineman’s Rodeo, Red Pins and Idlefox tonight. $5, 9:30 p.m.

It’s back to O’Leaver’s tomorrow night for an evening of heavy indie and sludge/stoner rock. The always entertaining Dumb Beach headlines. Ocean Black has the second slot — the band formerly known as Nightbird. Hag opens at 9:30 p.m. $5.

Finally, it’s a four-band bill at Milk Run Saturday night, headlined by Eric In Outerspace with Dirty Talker (members of Her Flyaway Manner), Lodgings (members of UUVVWWZ, Noah’s Ark, Sound of Rails) and Better Friend. $5, 9 p.m.

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