The idea for Hear Nebraska (HN) is rooted in a bar in Lansing, Mich. Angie Norman, co-founder of the online publication, came up with the idea of Hear Nebraska in 2010 while brainstorming ideas for her husband, Andrew Norman's, graduate thesis project. In January 2011, the official Hear Nebraska website went live.
"[HN] is mainly a nonprofit music website used to cultivate Nebraska's music and spread it worldwide, which is the ultimate goal," managing editor Michael Todd said.
The Gateway chatted with local band The Answer Team about who they are, where they've been, their times at UNO and plans for their next big album.
Next week UNO will host the 2012 Show Choir Invitational, and the university's vocal music department would like to invite everyone to attend.
