Steve Bartolomei returns to Omaha and brings the rest of Mal Madrigal with him for a showcase performance tonight at The Waiting Room for his Bocca Lupo label, which is celebrating two new releases: Orenda Fink’s “Mighty Mist” b/w “New Life” 7-inch and the duo of Kevin Pike and John Kotchian’s Pulse/Flow LP.

Each copy of the Orenda Fink 7-inch (limited to 150) includes original, unique handcrafted artwork by Fink and comes with a free download code. The Pike/Kotchian LP comes numbered in hand silkscreened jackets, featuring original art by New York painter and illustrator Lui Shtini. You can order both online here, but you can probably pick them up at tonight’s show, which features everyone on the Bocca Lupo label: Fink, Pike/Kotchian, Mal Madrigal and Before the Tea and Toast. $7, 9 p.m.
