Circa Survive, Foxy Shazam thrash The Slowdown

"If Foxy Shazam was an animal at the zoo, well it'd be the lion that would bite your head off without even thinkin' about it!" These were the first words lead singer, Eric Nally, used to describe the wild ride we were about to go on this past Wednesday at The Slowdown.


Artists dig into details of art in the public sphere

The works of Hesse mcgraw and Dustin Bushon are completely diferent entities, but the themes they explore are quite similar: How public art shapes space. Speaking to a crowded gallery room on Jan. 23 as part of the College of Fine Arts and Media's Masters and Music speaker series, the two artists shared their views on what they do.

Neil Simon's The Odd Couple had its opening night at the Omaha Community Playhouse on Jan. 21.  The Playhouse, a classy and spacious theatre maintained through community donations and staffed by volunteers, was warm with laughter as freezing temperatures kept the city of Omaha stiff outside.


Retribution on display in Oscar contender ‘Grit’

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.
