Con Dios w/ The So-So Sailors

Jan. 20 Con Dios w/ The So-So Sailors O’Leaver’s, 1322 S. Saddle Creek Rd. 9:30 p.m., $5, facebook.com/oleavers Con Dios is the new local supergroup featuring the songs of Phil Schaffart. Schaffart plays guitar and sings and is ably backed by Matt Maginn on bass (Cursive), Pat Oakes on drums (Ladyfinger) and Dan McCarthy on keys (McCarthy Trenching, The Mynabirds). The band has been in “residency” at O’Leaver’s and this will be one of its last performances as Schaffart hits the road to tour as a guitar tech with Bright Eyes for the better part of 2011. The musicians are more than capable and Schaffart writes songs that are both enjoyable and distinguished. This show will be a great opportunity to catch two of Omaha’s up and coming bands and to also enjoy the basement-barroom vibe that O’Leaver’s has made such an intrinsic part of the our local music scene.
