Calendar of Events

What's happening in your area this week!


Mary Poppins is pure magic

Mary Poppins: The Broadway Musical" is pure magic. I've loved the movie since I was five, and the stage production exceeded even my highest expectations.


UNO faculty art exhibit

UNO's art gallery, room 219 in the Weber Fine Arts building, displays work from artists of all levels: undergraduates, graduate students and professional artists. Right now, the gallery is showcasing art by UNO faculty artists.


Jason Derulo tickets “sure to sell”

As of Monday, Feb. 7, UNO students are able to purchase advance tickets for the Jason Derulo concert hosted by Maverick Productions in April. The presale event will run Monday through Friday, offering students a chance to snag tickets before anyone else does.


Flawless “Human”

 A vampire, a werewolf and a ghost living together sounds like the beginning of a really bad joke, or at the very least, a really bad ‘tween book.


Storage Facility hosts Science Fair

Last weekend, the Old Market's Urban Storage facility had fewer vacant units than usual. The massive warehouse on the southeast corner of 13th and Leavenworth played host to more than 75 artists and performers for a two-part exhibition appropriately titled Science Fair.


Why Amos Lee is possibly the best recording artist around

Amos Lee's new CD "Mission Bell" opens with a track called "El Camino" but unlike the song's namesake, there is virtually nothing tacky about this album.
