Domo Genesis added as Lincoln Calling headliner, replaces Kali Uchis

Maybe you know Domo Genesis as one of Odd Future’s most lyrically precocious members, or perhaps from his critically acclaimed debut album Genesis, with appearances by Mac Miller, Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, Tyler, The Creator, Anderson .Paak and more. Either way, the Inglewood, Calif. native has been added to this year’s Lincoln Calling.

Domo Genesis headlines Duffy’s Backlot Thursday, Oct 6 with Icky Blossoms, Gosh Pith, Conny Franko, Rothsteen and DJ Sharkweek. View the full schedule here and purchase weekend and single-night passes here.

Domo replaces Kali Uchis, who was forced to drop from the lineup due to an unforeseen recording conflict. We’re disappointed, but we’ll do our best to get her to Lincoln in the future.

Recently, Domo and Genesis collaborator Anderson .Paak performed the album’s hit single “Dapper” on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Watch below:

HN multimedia intern Connor Lepert went to Vega Friday night to catch Colorado folk band Paper Bird, which stopped in the midst of a nationwide tour in support of the band’s self-titled sixth studio album. Paper Bird represents its players’ return to a more folk-oriented sound and announces the arrival of vocalist Carleigh Atkins. Find it here. Local songwriter Matt Meyer filled in for previously scheduled opener Andrea van Kampen, who had fallen ill.

Film Streams honors patrons and employees with nationwide Art House Theater Day

Story by Jhalisa Robinson

Omaha nonprofit theater Film Streams will join 200 others nationwide on September 24th to host Art House Theater Day, an exclusive event designed to celebrate the dedication of theater staff and moviegoers alike.

“Without our box office and concessions staff, projectionists, and patrons, Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater simply would not exist,” said Film Streams Communications Director Patrick Kinney in a statement. “Art House Theater Day is a chance to thank them all by doing what we love: going to the movies to enjoy vital, form-pushing art.”

Created by the Art House Convergence, the event serves the purpose of their mission to advance the caliber and significance of art house cinemas across the country.

At a time when media consumption continues to become more solitary and digital, it’s important to take a step back to remember the positives of the shared theatrical experience, not to mention face-to-face conversation,” Kinney says.

As part of the celebration, Film Streams will be orchestrating the one-time premiere of Danny Says, Terry Gilliam’s Time Bandits, and continuously a staff favorite, A Town Called Panic.

Danny Says is a documentary based on the life of Danny Fields, a Harvard drop-out, that had a remarkable influence on late 20th century pop culture with his as the Directory of Publicity at Elektra Records.

Time Bandits is a time-traveling satire film about a boy named, Kevin, who joins a gang of time traveling dwarves to get away from his technology obsessed parents.

A Town Called Panic is an all-age appropriate staff favorite in the form of animated shorts, starring Cowboy, Indian, and Horse on their many misadventures of trying to stay calm.

The event will be celebrated at Ruth Sokolof Theater at 1p.m. with A Town Called Panic, Danny Says at 5 p.m., and Time Bandits at 7 p.m. Cost of admission per firm for adults will be $9.00. Students, seniors, military, teachers are $7.00, and theater members will be $4.50. RSVP here.

Hear Nebraska FM on-air tonight for KZUM’s Fall Fund Drive

As of 6 a.m. Monday morning, KZUM stood just $3,892.73 away from reaching its $40,000 Fall Fund Drive goal. Tune in to Hear Nebraska FM tonight at 8 p.m. as we bring two hours of Nebraska music and make our final appeal for your support of Lincoln’s nonprofit community radio station.

When KZUM’s fall fund drive kicked off, it stood nearly $30,000 away from reaching its $300,000 fundraising goal for the fiscal year 2016 — a mark it must hit by September 30 in order to continue qualifying for federal funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. CPB funding accounts for roughly 25-percent of the station’s operating costs. Should it reach the mark, it will qualify for said funding through 2019. Read our story here for the full details.
