Cowboys, cowgirls, madmen and women: Party with us this weekend to help celebrate the launch of this very website. We've put together seven fantastic bands from multiple Nebraska cities to play in Omaha and Lincoln over two nights — and with all of whom, you're going to want to make it.

• You're going to pay just $5, a portion of which directly funding Hear Nebraska programs. No one's making any money off of this nonprofit website. But we need your support to make it an effective, sustainable mouthpiece and resource for Nebraska artists.

• You're going to see some of the state's best very rock, indie and folk bands.

• And you're going to be among like-minded people who believe that this state's arts culture can stand proudly with any other.

Here are the details:

• Friday, Feb. 4 at The Sydney in Benson, 9 p.m., $5, featuring Little Brazil, Ideal Cleaners and The Fucking Party. RSVP here.
