Noah's Ark Was a Spaceship with Ideal Cleaners, The Answer Team and the Yuppies at the Waiting Room, 9 p.m., $7, all ages (17 and under with parental permission form)
Having been compared to the likes of Polvo, Swervedriver, Sebadoh, and Sonic Youth, the members of Omaha four-piece Noah's Ark Was A Spaceship draw their influence from late '80s college radio and '90s counterculture. After releasing 2008's My Name is What is Your Name EP on Slumber Party Records, the band now prepares for the launch of its forthcoming debut full length album Hanga-Fang on February 22nd, recorded in Omaha by Mark McGowan and mixed by AJ Mogis at ARC studios. The band has been in constant motion, both in the recording studio and embarking on national tours, all the while living diligently by these words: Under no circumstances does Noah's Ark Was A Spaceship wish to push their beliefs upon you. They just hope you come to their shows and have a good time. The band is happy, and wants you to be too.
