Pick: Rock Paper Dynamite and Snake Island

June 22
Rock Paper Dynamite w/ Snake Island, Dim Light and The Decatures
The Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St.
9 p.m., $7 at the door, onepercentproductions.com

Rock Paper Dynamite are returning to Omaha, just in time for Snake Island to leave town on tour. Rock Paper Dynamite pulled up stakes last year for North Carolina, but now they seem to be splitting time between here and there. The band's presence in Omaha is a welcome one, as they play a brand of no-frills, good-time rock 'n' roll that's scarce in town. Meanwhile, Snake Island will be headed out on a three-week tour starting with this show. The psych-rock band is also re-releasing their self-titled EP on vinyl and cassette at the show. Fellow black-cast psych-roots band Dim Light and the youthful, bluesy Decatures round at this all-star local bill.
