Clever w/ Straight Outta Junior High & The Jes Winter Band

Dec. 18 Clever w/ Straight Outta Junior High & The Jes Winter Band Waiting Room, 6212 Maple St. 9 p.m., $10, onepercentproductions.com A late-’90s Omaha favorite, Clever rocked places like the Ranch Bowl where the band drew sweaty, moshing crowds full of adulating fans. But quicker than you can say “grasshopper takeover,” the group decided to head for greener pastures down in St. Louis for a gig opening for The Urge. Clever is a hybrid of past Omaha outfits: vocalist Bruce Coddington hails from Blue Moon Ghetto while bassist Clint Thomas and drummer Paul Weaklend were in Secret Skin. So it’s a sort of homecoming for everyone this Saturday, and you can expect these guys to play tight, funk-rock riffs similar to some old 311, or maybe The Offspring on a good day.
