Music and movies join together for two events

* D-Rock's in Papillion will host an outdoor concert featuring bands comprised of local kids ages 9 and up. The show kicks off at 3 p.m. Friday, May 23rd at Sumtur Amphitheater, 11691 South 108th St. and will feature local bands including Just Sayin', Creative Tension, SIO, The Concept and Demented Memories. The show will also feature a screening of the animated movie Frozen. 

* The Holland Center, 1200 Douglas St., will also host outdoor music and movie screenings, starting Friday, July 11th. The three consecutive Friday night events are free. Dani Cleveland performs before Frozen July 11th, the Root Marm Chicken Farm Jug Band plays July 18th and the Electroliners are on tap for July 25th. The free event kicks off with music at 7:30 p.m. 

* A quick note of the Monday, May 19th Morrissey show at the Rococo Theater in Lincoln: it was surprisingly short. But turns out the previous night in Denver was also a set that ran a little over an hour. Morrissey and his band started off with a good deal of energy but the set derailed once Morrissey began to talk about the drive across Nebraska. "It's boring," crowd members interrupted each time he began his story. Morrissey got frustrated at the interruptions, moved on to the next song and didn't talk to the crowd much for the rest of the night. He didn't even return for an encore. If you saw Morrissey's 2007 Omaha show, consider yourself lucky. This time, the vibe was wrong and the Moz seemed eager to be done.
