The Return of Fizzle Like a Flood

Doug Kabourek didn't look much different than when I first saw him slumped like a homeless college student in the back of Sokol Underground during a Her Space Holiday show, circa 1999.

I had just begun going to rock shows alone -- a big step for me, but one I knew I'd have to take if I wanted to continue seeing the indie bands I loved. I realized after finding Kabourek rolled up like a bum on...

The (Online) Calendar Hung Itself

Before we get started, full disclosure: I'm on the "board" of hearnebraska.org. Not that it matters -- I'm not involved in the website's day-to-day activities, and have little or no input on things like website content or fundraising events.

Live Review: Dancing in the Streets

I doubt the crowd at this year's Dundee Day rock show was expecting what it got when a sweaty, shirtless Darren Keen, a.k.a. The Show Is the Rainbow, jumped from the stage into the audience like a 250-pound Tolkien (or maybe, more suitably, toke-in') battle dwarf, his shaggy red beard blowin' in the wind as he performed his unique style of electronic funk-rock to a sheepish, half-drunk...

And Then There Was One: Homer’s to Close Its Orchard Plaza Location

It all comes down to one question: Why should people buy recorded music at Homer's Records or any other independent record store rather than order it online?

"In 2011, it's a 50-50 split between digital and physical," said Homer's General Manager Mike Fratt, referring to a music market split between digital music files and CDs and vinyl. "If people choose to buy a full album, almost 75...
