In Omaha tonight, All Young Girls Are Machine Guns will play a Maha Music Festival showcase at Bridge Beats with Omaha singer/songwriters Kait Berreckman and CJ Mills. Ahead of the show, a few fellow Omaha artists collaborated on a remix track for the Omaha soul band.

Omaha independent theater Film Streams continues its “Sights On Sounds” series Sunday night with The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years. Here’s a brief synopsis from the event listing

“While the first installment in the decline series was an earnest document of artists on the margins, part two casts an ironic gaze on the fans and practitioners of pop metal. Profiling artists, managers and rabid fans, the documentary is a harsh and frequently funny look at a loud, rude, sexy, sexist and anti-authoritarian LA scene. Interviews with Poison, Faster Pussycat, KISS, Ozzy Osbourne, and Aerosmith will delight.”

The screening begins at 7 p.m. Sunday night. Get ticket information at
