New Good Show Great Show and Sleep Sinatra; Nebraska Blues Challenge; Cerebral Ballzy and We Came As Romans tonight

Good Show Great Show released some new material for the first time since its 2012 album Larry Turquoise — a new song called “Math,” available on the band’s Soundcloud. The track also features Aaron Galvan and Alex Drvol of Freakabout.

The Lincoln trio’s track is carried along by brooding classic rock guitar riffs that finally pay off in a moody solo suitable for an ‘80s motorcycle ride into the sunset.

We hope to hear more from the electro-folk band soon.

Lincoln rapper Sleep Sinatra is back at it lately, with one new release and more in the works.

His most recent Sm Grims-produced output, “Yah’s Dust,” builds on what he started with his latest full-length, Monsters and Children. It’s smooth, relaxed and almost hazy, but simmering with a palpable intensity and ferocity.

The finals for the Nebraska Blues Challenge are Sunday at the 21st Saloon in Omaha. They begin at 4 p.m. with Church House Blues Band, Hector Anchondo and Drew Jude and the Cool Tones, each of whom won their respective semi-finals round.

The winner of the finals, determined by a point-system, will represent the Blues Society of Omaha at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis.

Finalists also have the opportunity to win cash prizes and studio time. Audience members can enter a raffle to win a framed Zoo Bar lithograph.

Doors open at 2 p.m. The show is $5, and all proceeds go to Blues Society of Omaha.

If you’re out and about tonight, there’s a couple notable shows:

Brooklyn punk band Cerebral Ballzy plays Vega. The band is often noted for its throwback, party-laden style of New York punk. Cerebral Ballzy released its sophomore album Jaded & Faded earlier this year on Cult Records. RSVP here.

The Bourbon’s big week — lines stretch down O Street for Gov’t Mule on Tuesday and Cherub last night — continues tonight with We Came As Romans. The heavy-hitting American metal band is known for its melodic, instrument-oriented take on metalcore. They’re also very into self-discovery, billing this national trek as the Present, Future, and Past Tour. It’s a 6:30 p.m. show. RSVP here.
