Dolores Diaz & the Standby Club, Jonathan Rice, High Up featured in new Live At O’Leaver’s release
A few big Omaha names were among three new Live at O’Leaver’s releases yesterday.
Dolores Diaz & the Standby Club, Jonathan Rice and High Up were among the most recent recorded sets. The Standby Club — a country cover band — comprises Conor Oberst, Mike Mogis, Dan McCarthy, Matt Maginn, Roger Lewis, Miwi La Lupa, Ben Brodin and Oberst’s wife Corina Figueroa Escamilla as Dolores Diaz. California singer/songwriter Rice opened for that band during a Jan. 3 concert, from which the new tracks were culled.
Late last week, Live At O’Leaver’s released a trio of three-song sets from Kansas City, Mo., band Shy Boys, Savannah, Ga., trio Triathalon and Omaha native Stephen Bartolomei. That pushes the total number of public sessions to 96.

In Omaha, Godspeed You! Black Emperor will take the Slowdown stage. The Canadian post-rock band released Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress last March on independent label Constellation Records. It’s the band’s fifth studio album and second in three years after a decade-long hiatus ended with ‘Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend! in 2012. Though never breaking into mainstream, the band has maintained a strong cult following, which explains why as of yesterday, only 15% of tickets to the show remained. The duo of Greek lute player George Xylouris and New York-based drummer Jim White will open the show. RSVP here.
