Jeremy Quentin’s songwriting vehicle Small Houses returned to O’Leaver’s last night for a show with Anna McClellan. On Saturday, the folk artist released his latest album, Still Talk; Second City, in Denver. We recently premiered a Sonata Sessions with Small Houses.

The Hideout announced today that The Queers and Masked Intruder will play the Omaha venue on March 7. RSVP here.

Georgia-based punk rock trio The Queers has been playing for more than 30 years with various lineups. With 11 studio albums, the band has made a name on simple pop-influenced punk sound.

Masked intruder is a pop punk quartet from Madison that’s members play in masks and go by Intruder Green, Intruder Red, Intruder Blue and Intruder Yellow. The band has released two albums on Fat Wreck Chords, and last played Omaha back in May.

It’s the first Black Heart Booking show since Lucas Wright told us he was hanging up his spurs. We’ll probably be seeing more big name punk shows like this and the Teenage Bottlerocket with A Wilhelm Scream show, which was moved from The Hideout to Slowdown when Pennywise was added.
