David Nance, Church of Gravitron, American Cream open Milk Run

Today’s news includes a massive photo spread from this weekend’s packed slate of shows, and it starts with the grand opening of a new Omaha venue.

Milk Run held its inaugural concert Saturday night, featuring Omaha’s David Nance, Church of Gravitron and St. Paul’s American Cream. Perpetual Nerve’s Chris Aponick and Sam Parker are the brains behind the operation, with See Through Dresses Sara Bertuldo and Matthew Carroll holding down the soundboard. Aponick recently spoke with Lazy-i blogger Tim McMahan about the inspiration and direction of the new venue, which can be read here.
