April 19
Jukebox The Ghost w/ Pretty & Nice
The Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St.
9 p.m., $10 in advance/$12 day-of-show, onepercentproductions.com

Jukebox the Ghost is a shapeshifting band of modern indie-poppers, willing to graft rubbery 80s R&B uplift or polyrhythmic world-music styling to their propulsive pop songs. The Brooklyn-based trio's shifting sound has allowed them to share the stage with Ben...

Pick: April 23 Poli├ža

April 23
Poliça w/ Night Moves
The Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St.
9 p.m., $14, onepercentproductions.com

The collaboration of vocalist Channy Leaneagh and restless Minneapolis musician Ryan Olson (Gayngs, Marijuana Deathsquads) has quickly built a head of steam on the dichotomy of the smoldering, subdued electro-pop of their 2012 debut album, Give Up the Ghost, and a live show that reportedly burns...

Doin’ it for Sugar and Bette Swanson

The musical Sugar sports one song with a fighting chance to send you home singing its title, “Doin’ It For Sugar.” Change that slightly to “doin’ it for Bette” and it comes closer to the spirit of a preview performance at the Bellevue Little Theatre.

A pre-show tribute honored Bette Swanson, its producer who is stepping down from that role after producing 27 years at the BLT, including two earlier goes at this...

Pick: Now, Now

April 12
Now, Now w/ The Lonely Forest, Millions of Boys
The Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St.
9 p.m., $12, onepercentproductions.com

Minneapolis indie pop act Now, Now first call to mind similarly put-together alternative pop acts like Tegan & Sara, but there's a coarser, rockier spirit on the band's 2012 album Threads that morphs the band's sound towards the sort of smoldering music written by the likes...

Pick: The Pines

April 13
The Pines w/ Brad Hoshaw
The Slowdown, 729 North 14th St.
9 p.m., $8 in advance/$10 at the door, theslowdown.com

The Pines evolved dramatically on their 2012 album Dark So Gold, emerging as a moodier, subtler, bleaker and groovier version of a gothic Americana act. The contemplative folk that joined together songwriters David Huckfelt and Benson Ramsey led them from Arizona, where they first joined...

Preservation Hall Jazz Band

Holland Performing Arts Center, 13th and Douglas Street

8 p.m., $25 - $65

(402) 345-0606, http://www.ticketomaha.com

This is an American institution. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band got its start in 1961, but it grows out of a musical tradition at least a century in the making, and that is part of the magic – as if all music coming out of New Orleans isn’t magical....
