Dim Light celebrates new single with release show

* Dim Light will celebrate release of a seven-inch single with a show Saturday, August 20th at Brothers Lounge, 3812 Farnam Street. The single features “For You” and “Maggas”, both of which were recorded at Sleepy House Audio, bassist Tom Barrett's home studio. It is being released by Grotto Records, the label associated with the Antiquarium record store. The show, featuring Minneapolis' Private Dancer and Solid Goldberg, starts at 10 p.m. Tickets are $5.

* The Faint's Todd Fink, Jacob Thiele and Clark Baechle are making new noise as Depressed Buttons, fully immersing themselves in the dance music and remix game. The latest release is a sparse, yet thrillingly vibrant remix of Brazilian indie-dance act CSS's “Hits Me Like a Rock”. The trio is signed to Diplo's Mad Decent label and are set to make their live DJ debut in Omaha at House of Loom, 1012 South 10th St., Friday, September 9th.

* Cheers to the organizers of the Maha Music Festival, who hit a home run Saturday at Aksarben Village's Stinson Park. The third annual event hopefully has found a home for the next few years, as the park provided a cozy home for the indie music festival. Performers were the main event and they are why Maha has cemented a unique reputation. Headliners Matisyahu and Guided By Voices drew devoted followers and Guided By Voices absolutely killed it with their evening-into-dusk set that cranked out hits from their classic mid-90's albums. Locals provided almost as many highlights, including Noah's Ark Was a Spaceship. The 90's slacker rock acolytes where well-suited on a bill highlighted by Guided By Voices and Dinosaur Jr.'s J. Mascis.

* Emphatic has canceled an acoustic in-store originally scheduled for Thursday, August 18th at Homer's Music in the Old Market. Singer Patrick Wilson has pulled out of several weeks' worth of concert dates as well, after injuring his vocal chords. The band is still listed as playing Friday, August 19th at Harrah's Stir Cove and have been playing other Carnival of Madness tour dates with The Wreckage's Grant Kendrick on vocals. Meanwhile, the band's new single “Bounce” has cracked the Top 20 on Billboard's Active Rock charts, coming in last week at number 19.
