Pick: Now, Now

April 12
Now, Now w/ The Lonely Forest, Millions of Boys
The Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St.

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

Slam poetry festival to hold team finals

As the Louder Than a Bomb Omaha Youth Poetry Festival draws to a close after weeks of preliminary bouts and last Sunday’s semi-finals, it appears slam poetry is a new outlet for that rite-of-passage known as adolescence.

The 2013 team finals pitting defending champion Duchesne, Lincoln North Star, Lincoln High and Omaha Central are April 12 at 7 p.m. in the Hixson-Lied Auditorium at Creighton University's Harper...
