Weekend photo coverage features Turner Park Night Market, Salt Creek album release show; Out Magazine profiles Plack Blague; Ian Sweet tonight

Photo coverage: Turner Park Night Market

We kick off Tuesday news coverage with a spread of photos from shows throughout the weekend.

First up is the Turner Park Night Market, which had its inaugural event at Midtown Crossing on Friday night, with music curated by Hear Nebraska. Miwi La Lupa, Lonely Estates and The Way Out performed in front of an all-ages crowd, surrounded by local vendors, activities and a night yoga class. HN multimedia intern Marti Vaughan was on-hand to capture the event in photos, which can be viewed below. The next Turner Park Night Market happens Friday, July 28. Musical acts forthcoming, RSVP here and stay tuned for details.

Photo coverage: Salt Creek’s album release show at The Bourbon

HN multimedia intern Emma Petersen went to The Bourbon on Saturday to catch Lincoln indie rock band Salt Creek’s album release concert. The band drew heavily on its debut EP Where Strangers Go, which is out now via Bandcamp and various streaming services. The very same band stopped by the KZUM studio last night for Hear Nebraska FM, the recordings from which we’ll post later in the week.

The Way Out, Jacob James Wilton and Hakim also performed. Hakim released an album of his own, EXISTintoENCE, over the weekend, and was on HN FM a week ago. And as you’ll notice in the photos below, The Way Out vocalist Mari Crisler received a mid-set haircut courtesy of JJW’s Jake Newbold; rock ‘n’ roll.

See Petersen’s photos below:

Out Magazine features Plack Blague

We posted about it over the weekend, but in case you missed it, Lincoln industrial/electronic artist Plack Blague scored a feature interview with Out Magazine which published Friday, May 26. The story starts from the very beginning, introducing the LGBTQ magazine’s readership to Raws Schlesinger and his darkly erotic project, covering its origins, the nostalgic and subversive new album Night Trax and the raw sexual energy of Blague’s live show.

Read it here. Night Trax is available now.

Concert Round-Up

Tonight, Ian Sweet comes to The Waiting Room. The New York indie pop band tours in support of Shapeshifter, the debut album which dropped this past September on Hardly Art Records (Chastity Belt, Shannon & the Clams). Frontperson Jilian Medford sings beautifully and ethereally of loneliness and the comfort of simple pleasures, and the album itself is daydreamy and awash in slow burning melodicism. Omaha’s Thick Paint opens the show. 8 p.m., $10, all-ages, RSVP here.
