Aretha Franklin circa 1970.

by Tim McMahan, Lazy-i.com

I’m listening to Aretha’s Spirit in the Dark (1970, Atlantic) as I type this. She’s one of those artists you just assumed would always be around…

Anyway, this late afternoon update is to hype that this is the last day to buy tickets to the Maha Music Festival before the day-of-show price hikes. Get on it. I’ll write more about Maha tomorrow.

There’s a few hot shows tonight leading into the weekend.

Tonight at The Brothers Lounge Thick Paint headlines a show that features LA’s Traps PS. Their new album, Chants, comes out tomorrow. If that weren’t enough, The Jim Schroeder Sextet opens at 10 p.m. $5.

Also this evening, seminal Omaha hardcore punk band R.A.F. plays in the beer garden at fabulous O’Leaver’s starting at 6 p.m. What will the neighbors say? $5.

And finally The Waiting Room tonight is hosting a benefit wherein all money raised will go to support families being separated at the border by providing funds for legal support by way of RAICES. Satchel Grande headlines. 7 p.m. $15.
