Three shows highlight Lincoln’s music calendar

* Lincoln's claim as a music city will ring true July 15th as they host three shows that would be marquee indie rock events in any Midwestern city. Within a square mile in the state capital, Vega, the Bourbon Theater and Knickerbocker's will all host excellent shows. Lo-fi slacker pop songwriter Mac DeMarco headlines at Vega with opener Calvin Love. Cloud Nothings will fill Knickerbocker's with their buzzsaw guitar reconstruction of Weezer-style power pop, highlighted by singer Dylan Baldi's post-emo vocals. The Bourbon Theater will host the best opening acts, boasting spastic  indie poppers the Front Bottoms, punk-pop band the So So Glos and indie emo revivalists You Blew It! all opening for the heart-on-sleeve alternative rock of Say Anything. 

* Arizona band Andrew Jackson Jihad will spread their folk-punk stomp across the city Tuesday, July 15th, supplementing their night show at the Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St., with an all-acoustic in-store performance at Homer's Music, 1210 Howard St. The 6 p.m. record store performance is free.
