Enso in the House

It’s a good time to be a DJ in Omaha. There are scores of venues available (the Waiting Room, House of Loom and even restaurants/bars like Blue and Roja, just to name a few), and the competition is getting cutthroat. So who is Enso?

All Systems Go for MAHA Music Festival

When the first band takes the stage at this year's MAHA Music Festival (at exactly 12:30 p.m. this Saturday), event organizers can take pride in knowing they've pulled together a program that not only tops last year's event, but also establishes itself as the area's premiere indie music festival.

Lord knows, it wasn't easy. Along the way, their difficult path was filled with unexpected turns,...
