Tonight, as part of Hear Nebraska and Urban Outfitter’s first Thursday series, Video Ranger and The Ridgways play Urban Outfitters in downtown Omaha.

Free to attend, the show will also offer art and video work by Carter Paulsen, merchandise from SILO, nail art, free pizza and free beer.

Video Ranger recently released their third record, Video Ranger 3, a seven-track ruckus, clocking in around 10 minutes long. On it, Ian Fleming’s trombone does as much to characterize the lo-fi punk aesthetic as Jackson Jensen’s yelping vocals.

The Ridgways are on the cusp of a tour and a demo of new songs, which will be the band’s first release since 2013’s Fast Times at Ridgway HighRidgway High could nearly be a Ramones record. The band’s affinity for brevity rivals Video Ranger’s.

The show begins at 6 p.m. It will be loud. RSVP here.
