Vowels are Out, FNDNCPRTY is In: Tonight at Exit Only

We didn't get this in the paper on time, so here it is. Tonight's new all-ages dance party at Exit Only (it remains to be seen whether this will become a weekly/monthly type-thing) reminds me of a game show my friend Erik proposed called "Can I Buy a Vowel?" The show would be dedicated to all...   More

MGMT, "Kids," DJ Koolaid Mo Dance Remix (Unreleased)

I don't particularly care for east coast group MGMT. I don't like them enough that, after acquiring its track "Time to Pretend" as a free itunes download, I deleted it while at the same time keeping Sean Kingston's freebie single "I'm 18" (an ode to rocking the vote and being 18 (hint: 'he loves ...   More

Photo Review: Southern Belle and World's Greatest Ghosts at The Hawthorne Theatre, July 6th 2008

This past Sunday Omaha's Tilly and the Wall had not one, but two fine local groups opening up for it at the Hawthorne Theatre. At nine on the dot, World's Great Ghosts took to the stage for a roughly half hour set. Next came Southern Belle, who even used its set-up time for a miniature set of i...   More

White Rainbow, Rob Walmart, Extreme Animals, White Fang at Two House Shows, July 5th 2008

Whew! Whole lot of White Fang on this blog lately. I promise this'll be the last of it (for at least a little bit), but Saturday's duel house show featuring White Rainbow, Rob Walmart, Extreme Animals and the fanged however-many-piece carried the intensity and the magic to make it legendary, so ...   More

Photo Review: Atole on Sumner St., July 4th, 2008

Fresh off a guerrilla gig the week prior at a practice space on NW 5th, Atole performed a special set on Sumner street Friday night.

This week's Hang the DJ gets metal, what with tour booker (and freelance WW music scribe) Nathan Carson stepping in the booth to shed light on his life as DJ Nate C.

Little Beirut, "Belle du Jour," High Dive

It would appear that any band or artist worth their weight in plastic has a summer song. From Will Smith's "Summer Time" to Bananarama's "Cruel Summer"—and locally, YACHT's "Summer Song" (plus so many more)—it's definitely a popular season to write songs about. Little Beirut ha...   More

White Fang at The Clatter House, June 20th 2008

White Fang is like a box of chocolates: You never know what you're going to get. They proved it again last Friday at the Clatter House. Have you ever attended a house show that started at 7 pm? Me either. Well, maybe an all-day fest, but an evening house show on a Friday night of all nights, st...   More

Fist Fite, "Fair Hunt Surprise" (Lips and Ribs Remix), Unreleased

Is this the most melodic Fist Fite has ever been? I do believe so. It sounds like a slap in the face of the trio's typical spazz-core sound and in an entirely good way. Who can this achievement be credited to? Why, none other than Lips and Ribs, aka Jay Winebrenner. His remix catalog includes a...   More
