Live at Maha: The Millions

Lincoln's the Millions will once again be missed. The alternative dream-poppers, who were on major label subsidiary of Polygram Records in the early 1990s, played the final set of their brief reunion.

Live at Maha: Thao & The Get Down Stay Down

It's interesting to hear the change in the sound of the Maha Music Festival once the lineup moves from local and regional acts to national, regularly touring indie acts like Thao & Get Down Stay Down. Once Thao Nguyen and her band took the stage, the professionalism oozed. Songs were arranged intricately on many songs with a cool confidence. The band mostly plays tuneful indie rock/folk, but...

Live at Maha: HERS w/ Omaha Girls Rock

The band was perfect for the...

Live at Maha: Millions of Boys

Millions of Boys unveiled a larger lineup as they kicked off their performance on Maha Music Festival's main stage. The added instrumental heft of an added guitarist and a full time keyboardist provided a layer of lushness to the band's hook-filled indie pop.

Two excellent shows highlight early August weekend

* The Queens of the Stone Age didn't exactly play like a band that has scored modern rock hits and recorded most of their material on major labels, but they certainly brought a mega-watt arena rock video screen to provide visuals for their packed Stir Cove show at Harrah's Casino Sunday, August 4th. Those visuals provided most of the visual stimulation for fans as the band marched through a...
