Tuned in: Gateway playlist

Whether we're popping a CD in our car stereos on the way to work or choosing a playlist for an all-night study session, all of us have our favorite artists that we continue to fall back on. Here's a list of the artists who have won that spot in our hearts… and on our iPods.


Hear Nebraska

Hear Nebraska, which is a non-profit organization, officially launched their web site Jan. 24 and is trying to become the one stop place for anything that is Nebraskan music media. The founder of the organization, journalist Andrew Norman, has slowly but surely been putting the pieces together for the last couple of years to make a promising idea materialize into something big.


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.

‘The Odd Couple’ reminds us to laugh

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’

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.
