* Lincoln's Pinewood Bowl, 3201 South Coddington, is planning for a summer filled with live music on its outdoor amphitheater stage. So far, three shows have been announced.

Tickets for the shows are available at Ticketmaster and the Pershing Center box office.

* Icky Blossoms provided the first real taste of their upcoming Saddle Creek Records debut, thanks to their new video for "Babes". The video premiered on disconaivete.com. It black-and-white clip opens with the band's principal players, Sarah Bohling, Nik Fackler and Derek Pressnall walking down a side street near South 26th Street and St. Mary's Avenue. Color comes from flashes of the words "girls", "women" and "babes" throughout the video. The clip switches between performance shots and bits of various IB friends dancing and singing along to the sultry, smoking indie-dance track. Make a special note of wardrobe, compiled by Mark Andrew Steffan and Nicholas Marsoulnier Wasserberger, who both also appear in the video.

* If that doesn't satisfy your music video craving, check out the new stop-motion video from regular Omaha visitors, White Mystery. Penelope Gazin directed "Rapid Overdrive" as an animated action-adventure clip, featuring the Chicago sister-brother duo on a pre-historic outing. The song, available on YouTube, also happens to rock.
