"I could never find the right 'darling,' and then I found Matt. ... And then we were like, 'We need drums.' So we found Robert at Ted and Wally's (ice cream shop). Ice cream brought us together."
This week's calendar expands beyond mere concerts to include film and dance.
Irkutsk, Edge of Arbor, I Am the Navigator, Chop Chop, The Betties and a women-filled Clawfoot House show lead this week's lady music calendar.
Six female songwriters from Omaha and one from New Jersey shared their music and talked about their experiences at a recent PS Collective roundtable. Listen to a podcast of the event here.
If you liked StereoFidelics, Cowboy Indian Bear or Fierce Bad Rabbit the last times they came through the state, then you're in luck: They're all converging on Lincoln and/or Omaha this weekend.
A reunion! A lady songwriter round table! Deerpeople! The Betties' CD release show! (It's going to be a good week.)
Tour kick-offs? CD release shows? Yes please!
This week more than makes up for the dearth of music-by-women last week. Holy live music, Bat(wo)man!
This week's calendar is smaller, but the music is as great as ever.
