Bands to host Pilger tornado benefit show

* Four bands with ties to the northeast Nebraska area are coming together to host a benefit show for the tornado-stricken town of Pilger. Des Moines' Monday Mourners, Clarence Tilton, the Sons of... and the Matt Whipkey Band will all play at the Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St. on July 30 to raise money for recovery efforts in Pilger, which was hit by two tornadoes in June. The $8 cover will go to the Pulger Relief and Rebuild Fund.

* Omaha weirdo art-punk band Worried Mothers have released a music video for "Book of Lies", an unreleased song. It's a video that starts on a gauzy close-up of a sparrow carcass before cutting to home-made puppets and a whole dose of odd that is the band's calling card.

* Hullabaloo Music Festival is this weekend, kicking off Thursday, July 24 and going through the weekend. Tickets remain for the event, being held at Sokol Park in Bellevue. The line-up features the Kris Lager Band, Cornmeal, Carolyn Wonderland, Patrick Sweany, Nappy Roots and more. Get more information at hullabaloomusicfestival.com.

* The Good Speakers Fest is returning to Omaha Friday, Sept. 19 and Saturday, Sept. 20. The festival is curated by Touch People mastermind Darren Keen and is scheduled to take over the Carlisle Hotel's conference center, 10909 M St. The lineup is set to include Andrew WK, Icky Blossoms, Universe Contest, Routine Escorts, Cakes Da Killa and Black Oatmeal. Find the event on Facebook for more information.
