July 5

Modern Arts Midtown

3615 Dodge Street

Exhibit opening 6-8 p.m.

Modernartsmidtown.com

The 15 plus women artists featured in this July exhibit at MAM have nothing to prove. As She Sees It is not a feminist tract nor does it represent a singular voice or aesthetic on behalf of any socio-political issue. And it’s not meant as another exhibition of a so-called “woman’s touch.” This exhibit simply and...

Game On

Omaha will experience a brand new type of concert from the unique vein of Video Games Live Saturday, June 29. Tommy Tallarico, composer and brains behind the project, will lead a symphonic journey conveying the themes behind classic video games. It has the complexity of classical music but the raw shockwaves of a full-blown rock concert.
VGL has received praise from national names such as USA Today. The concert...

‘Twelfth Night’ Shows Audiences ‘How’ It’s Done

It’s never about the Who, What, When, or Where.

When it comes to performing Shakespeare, the ‘Who’ can be someone famous. You can bring in a star to perform a classic, but that certainly doesn’t guarantee a quality production. The ‘What’ will never be refreshing by itself. In this day and age, even the most obscure of the Bard’s plays have been performed thousands of times across the world. The ‘When’ and...

Widespread Panic

             I hate to admit it, but there was a time in my life when I wore hemp jewelry. I liked Phish. I went to kick it in the parking lots at numerous shows, from here to Chicago. I could tolerate a 45-minute version of “Harry Hood,” which was originally an 8-minute long track. I had to be really, really stoned. Otherwise, there was no way that would have ever made sense to me. Despite going to a...

Cursive

It’s already been 16 months since Cursive’s last album, I Am Gemini, was released on Saddle Creek Records. While the album didn’t necessarily perform as well as it could have, the dedication frontman Tim Kasher gave to the project was admirable on its own. Since then, Kasher and the rest of the boys have been busy doing what they do best: playing shows. And, wow, they’ve played a lot of shows in their hometown of...
