Video Concert Review: Of Montreal at The Slowdown

One dash of David Bowie, a pinch of The Cure twisted with a peel of vaudeville - shakin', definitely not stirred. I wasn't sure what to expect from the Athens GA. electronica funk glam afrobeat musical stylings of Of Montreal after spending a day in the office youtubing them.

<p>Not surprisingly, one of Seger’s biggest crowd reactions of the night was the reference to Omaha in his classic “Turn the Page.” </p>Concert Review: Bob Seger

Bob Seger is a legend, a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and, yes, he has credibility to rival almost anyone on the American stage.

<p>Sir Elton John, who has sold more than 250 million albums, graciously played the Tyson Events Center in Sioux City Tuesday night.  </p>Concert Review: Elton John

BY JEREMY LAFRENTZ Backstage Entertainment I wasn’t quite sure what to expect going to my first Elton John concert. I had grown up listening to his music, as my parents would often put in a greatest hits CD into the player. I did know this: Sir Elton just has the type of music everyone can love and sing along to. So as we made the trip up Tuesday night to the Tyson Events Center in Sioux...

Omaha Girls Rock is about more than rock and roll

I was drawn to The Slowdown last Sunday night not only because the lineup was stellar (Fortnight, Honeybee and Hers, Conduits and The Good Life), but because I was down with the message behind organization "Omaha Girls Rock." But before we get to that, let's turn to Stefanie Drootin, founder and executive director of OGR. As a member of The Good Life, Drootin is among the best bass players...
