JOHN KLEMMENSEN & THE PARTY W/ THE PHOTO ATLAS & THE KNEW

Nov. 7
JOHN KLEMMENSEN & THE PARTY W/ THE PHOTO ATLAS & THE KNEW
O’Leaver’s Pub, 1322 S Saddle Creek Road
9:30 p.m., $5, facebook.com/oleavers

John Klemmensen is a giant in more ways then one. Sure, physically he’s a giant but, he’s also got a giant voice. Giant Charisma. Giant attitude. Giant talent and the occastional giant scarf. The dude is seriously one of my favorite lyricists in Omaha who can make his blue guitar moan in a way that serves up the perfect poetic justice to his funny, ironic and emotionally complicated words. He also has a giant heart. Klemmensen will sing about heartbreak but, he frames in a way that reveals understanding and love. He’s not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve and confess how he feels in front of just about anyone who will listen. But he’s not just some sad mope who you would swear lives in his mother’s basement based upon the subject matter of his songs. He’s a guy who’s willing to see truth and not ashamed to point it out to you in a way that will make you laugh and learn at the same time.
