We haven’t had a show worth a shit all week and then tomorrow there’s an avalanche. Needless to say, I already have commitments for tomorrow night in the form of Take Cover Omaha, Vol. 2 at The Sydney in Benson. Just like last year, each performer will play one original song and cover one song by another Nebraska-based band and/or performer they admire. The line-up as of this writing:

Dan McCarthy (McCarthy Trenching) covering Bill Hoover (Dark Town House Band)
Landon Hedges (Desaparacidos, Little Brazil) covering Lullaby for the Working Class
Luke Pettipole (Envy Corps) covering Great American Desert
John Larsen covering John Klemmensen
John Klemmensen (… and the Party; Landing on the Moon) covering Ladyfinger
Ted Stevens (Cursive)
Laura Burhenn (The Mynabirds)
Heather Berney (The Betties) covering Matt Cox
Django Greenblatt-Seay covering The Good Life
Rebecca Lowry (All Young Girls Are Machine Guns) covering Paul Williams
Rachel Tomlinson Dick (HERS) and Teal Gardner (UUVVWWZ) covering Outlaw Con Bandana
Aaron Parker (Gordon)
Max Holmquist (The Great American Desert) covering Neva Dinova
Lee Meyerpeter and Josh Dunwoody (Filter Kings)

Your $5 cover will go to support Hear Nebraska, a little ol’ music-lovin’ organization in which I’m a board member. So, you know, you should go. Show starts at 9.

There are at least three more shows going on tomorrow night (which I’ll talk about in tomorrow’s blog). Why can’t you people figure out a way to spread the love over a few more days?

This week’s column is about gun laws and the bluster about changing them, which will result in nothing happening because people got to have their toys, no matter how dangerous they are. You can read it in this week’s issue of The Reader or online right here. Lock and load.

Uh, I swear that tonight’s show wasn’t on the One Percent website earlier this week, but there it is now. Tonight at the new, improved Waiting Room, it’s Bear Stories with Millions of Boys, Thirteenth Year and Fumescrew. It’s a chance to check out the club’s improvements to the sound, lights and stage, which Kevin Coffey writes about today’s OWH (right here).
