It's hard for a band to draw a crowd on a Tuesday night in the metro area, especially one that's not well known here. However, the Growlers brought in a sizeable crowd to the Slowdown on Feb. 5 and provided everyone a rambunctious time.
When the black flag is flying, Saddle Creek Shop is open for business.
Avey Tare's first solo album isn't quite what you would expect out from a crucial member of Animal Collective. Then again, you never get what you'd expect from the genre-defying experimental group. For Tare's first album from the late 1990's, he recruited friend Noah Lennox (Panda Bear) to beat the drums. Nine albums later, they are still creating music. Panda has gone on to record three solo albums with a fourth coming soon, including the highly acclaimed (and 2007's best) "Person Pitch." It's no wonder Tare finally decided to try it himself, and the final product is the challenging "Down There."
The Facebook event page for "Take Cover," a Hear Nebraska fundraiser at the Zoo Bar in Lincoln, was bustling with anticipation leading up to the Sept. 16 concert. Those who either missed the sold out event or want to know what the big deal is, the event is to be replicated in Omaha next month.
In 2007, Omaha native Buck Bowen took the stage for what was supposed to be his last show ever. He had decided to quit music, once and for all.
Without telling a soul, Bowen then left Omaha and set his sails for Costa Rica.
Flash to present day, Bowen is back in Omaha making music. However, don't expect to see the same comedic rapper that you knew in 2007.
