Singer/songwriter Stathi plays tonight at Pageturners.

It’s a real hodgepodge of local shows this weekend, with no big touring indie in the bunch (Hey, look at all these venues! Hey, where are all the bands?).

Tonight Stathi (Patseas) is back at Pageturners Lounge. Joining him is Sean Paul (Eric in Outerspace, The Sunks). This free show starts at 8 p.m.

There’s also a show tonight in an undisclosed location: Pagan Athletes is playing with Ivory Daze and FAHR at Rancho Rodeo. This sounds like a house show. No idea where, but you can DM them for the address.

Saturday night Jeremy Mercy and the Rapture Orphans opens for Daniel & the Deliverance and The Bedrock at Brokedown Palace, 88th and Maple St. Brokedown Palace (f.k.a. the Barley Street Tavern). 8 p.m. $10.

Sunday, Philly’s Mondo Cozmo, a.k.a. Josh Ostrander, is playing at Reverb. His latest, This is for the Barbarians (2022, Last Gang Records) is more alt rock than “folk rock” as listed on his Wiki. He’s been on Universal and Geffen in points in his career. Our own Ben Eisenberger opens at 8 p.m. $20.

And that’s it. If I missed your show put it in the comments section.

I now leave you with this new song from Pronoun called, “Roe vs gofvckurself” which pretty much sums up SCOTUS. Have a great weekend.

Well, looks like Covid is kicking our ass again. That means mask mandates all around if you’re headed to a show this weekend. Actually, I can’t imagine attending a show without a mask, anyway.

In fact, tonight’s Matt Whipkey show at Reverb Lounge is a No Vax/No Entry affair, so bring your Covid membership card along with your masks. Matt will be introducing a new line-up for this gig with Korey Anderson on guitar, Vic Padios (The Brigadiers, Calico, The Gymnastics) on bass, Scott Gaeta on keys, and Scott “Zip” Zimmerman back behind the drum kit. Opening is Jeremy Mercy and the Rapture Orphans. $10, 8 p.m.

Tomorrow night at Slowdown Jr. is the album release show for Cable Network, a band is fronted by Slowdown soundguy Charlie Ames with Braden Larson, guitar; Ben Rickers, bass; Charlie Encell, vocals; Jordan Opeary, vocals, percussion and Pat Stutzman, drums. It’s going to be a crowded stage. The album, Cable Network II, is a follow-up to their debut EP that came out in December 2020. Also on the bill is Omaha alt country band Clarence Tilton; Jack McLaughlin opens the show at 8 p.m. $8.

Also tomorrow night (Saturday), Omaha tribute band Bennie and the Gents is hosting another in a series of David Bowie tribute nights. This one also is No Vax/No Entry and starts at 9 p.m. $10.

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