Garbage at Maha Music Festival 2012

Garbage at very rainy Maha Music Festival 2012. The band plays tonight at SumTur Amphitheatre.

by Tim McMahan,

Surprisingly a lot of shows this weekend, though many are “under the radar”…

Biggest show of the weekend is tonight at SumTur Amphitheater in Papillion where grunge-era British band Garbage will headline. You remember them from Maha 2012. Opening is Kristen Kontrol (Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls’ new project). Check out her Ten Questions interview. Tickets are $35 general admission, $45 reserved. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.

It’s also Under the Radar weekend. I mentioned the highlights a couple days ago. Tonight’s UtR show of interest (to me, anyway) is at Milk Run where they’re showcasing a gaggle of electronic performers: Ammie Brod, Thomas Snydacker, Jared Brown, Jim Fusik and Big Slur (Dan Scheuerman of Deleted Scenes). Tickets are $10, show starts at 8 p.m.

It’s punk rock night at fabulous O’Leaver’s tonight with SHEdiots, Austin act All Opposed and Westside Proletariat. I’m not seeing a price for this one, but it’s probably $5, 9:30 p.m.

Also tonight, MiWi La Lupa opens for the Hottman Sisters’ EP release show at Reverb Lounge. I’ve been dying to catch MiWi’s set. Maybe tonight? Also on the bill are Walk By Sea. $7, 9 p.m.

Tomorrow night (Saturday) Relax, It’s Science opens for Lodgings at Barley Street Tavern. Dirty Talker and KC band Dark Satellites also are on the bill. 9 p.m., $5.

Meanwhile, O’Leaver’s is hosting Saturn Moth, Mint Wad Willy and Muscle Cousins. $5, 9:30 p.m.

Under the Radar shifts to The Slowdown Saturday night with a huge lineup that includes tbd Dance Collective, Radical 2, Bus Gas, Terrence McManus, Owen Weaver and Rosalyn Nasky and Les Moutons de Panurge. 7:30 p.m., $10.

Finally, there’s a gem of a show Sunday night at Reverb where Boston singer/songwriter Marissa Nadler headlines. She’s released albums on Kemado and Bella Union. Her latest album, Strangers, is out now on Sacred Bones. Pitchfork gave it a 7.6 saying she retains “her grey-skies aesthetic while bringing in a more spacious and rock-oriented sound.” Wrekmeister Harmonies & Muscle and Marrow also perform. Tickets are $12 now, $14 DOS. Show starts at 8 p.m.

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