Thank you both for giving us a nice rundown of the summer. I'll definitely be going to Built to Spill, The Shins, the Wilco show in Sioux City, Rock Paper Dynamite, The Hullaballoo festival, MAHA, the Bodeans, and My Morning Jacket/Band of Horses. I'll probably try catching Matt Whipkey's band because I've been telling him I'll catch one of his shows.
And of course, Ed knows how much I love Wes Anderson and his brood...so I'll be going to Filmstreams for Moonrise Kingdom on the first night it shows. :)
Thanks again, folks..
I have most all of these shows on my website, OmahaNightOutGuide.com, I generally update the calendar twice a month and keep a steady eye on all music events, national, regional and local; originals, tributes and covers.
I also book shows, some may be pretty heavy, but I have three on the slate this summer:
June 16th - Wet Radio, Empire Fall + 2 TBA - Shamrocks
June 19th - Spineshank (Grammy Award Nominee), The Agonist, 9Electric, Mureau, Fear Sight and A Differtent Breed - Knickerbockers in Lincoln.
July 3rd - Soulicit (from Wichita; have toured with Buck Cherry and many more; performed at Rocklahoma and South by Southwest this year), with Paradigm Shift, Anestatic and Wet Radio - Shamrocks
Of note, I am managing the daily operations of Wet Radio, who did a show for me in mid-April. On June 9th we go to the studio to lay down some tracks for the June 16th show. I will be shooting video of the band that night as well. They will be supporting that CD on July 3rd and play with some of Omaha's best local bands and get their first exposure to a national touring band in Soulicit.
Of course there are many more and they can be found on my website at OmahaNightOutGuide.com
