String Theory

For eight years Hot Buttered Rum String Band (HBRSB) has refined its Newgrass sound to incorporate an amalgamation of styles and genres. Based around the traditional acoustic string set-up (and with the somewhat recent addition of a drummer), HBRSB paints on a bluegrass canvas with a folk, rock, reggae and jazz palette. And while the band owes a nod to contemporaries like String Cheese Incident...

<p>Joe Krown Trio </p>Full Of Giving

This is the final weekend of benefit activities for the seventh annual Lash LaRue Toy Drive for the children of the Pine Ridge Reservation. Last week’s events hit a couple of bumps in the road when the CDs did not arrive in time for the CD release party.

Music Issue 2010: Brothers In Amps

How important is the work of Mike and AJ Mogis? The brothers have been involved with every significant indie music recording produced in Nebraska for the past 20 years. It’s that simple.
