Take Cover is consistently one of our favorite events each year, and we’re happy to announce the lineup for Take Cover Omaha today.
For quick background, each year, we host a fundraiser concert of about a dozen songwriters. They play one original and cover another Nebraska artist. In 2015, Take Cover is at The Waiting Room in Omaha on Jan. 23 and at The Bourbon in Lincoln on Jan. 30. We’ll drop the Lincoln lineup tomorrow, but for now, here’s who you can come out to see in Omaha:
John Klemmensen (John Klemmensen and the Party)
Sara Bertuldo and Matt Carroll (See Through Dresses)
Mim Aparo (Anthems)
Graham Ulicny and Sarah Bohling (Reptar, Icky Blossoms)
Jeremy Mercy (Travelling Mercies)
Jordan Smith (Twinsmith)
Jessica Errett (Edge of Arbor)
Lars and Mal
Dan McCarthy (McCarthy Trenching)

With five emcees and two producers in its ranks, Doomtree is a parade of musical and talent excess, even when the spirit they embody is Midwestern, DIY work ethic. Their spring tour was announced in conjunction with group’s new album, All Hands, due out Jan. 27.
mewithoutYou, the Philadelphia-based rock band, came to prominence in the mid-00s with its loose, genre-hopping take on alt rock and spiritually-themed spoken word vocals. More on them here.
