HearNebraska.org launched Monday morning. I'm not going to go into great detail here about the site because you can discover its multitudes on your own simply by typing the address into your browser.

From Russia With Rock

Mousetrap frontman Patrick Buchanan thought he was getting the opportunity of a lifetime. Little did he know that the next six months would forever change his perspective on life in these United States. But before we get to that, I urge you to get online right now and buy your ticket(s) to the Mousetrap reunion show Dec. 29 at The Waiting Room (or Dec. 28 at The Bourbon Theater for Lincoln...
