Somasphere added to Maha’s local stage

Somasphere is the latest addition to the Maha Music Festival's line-up. The Lincoln-based electronica band presents its dance-flavored sound with the muscle of a live rock band. The band has cemented its regional appeal with appearances in Colorado, Nebraska and at the Wakarusa Festival in Kansas. Maha has yet to announce a final main stage act.

It’s fairly hard to believe it’s been 15 years since an underdog band from Sacramento did the unthinkable, going way outside the box and turning a head-shaking disco anthem into a head-nodding alternative rock jam. But that’s what CAKE did, because outside the box is what CAKE does. Underdogs no more, next Thursday CAKE will be inside the loveable box you know as Sokol Auditorium to play...

Williams unraveled tales of heartbreak from her early career paired with gracefully wise odes to late-life love that’s marked her past two releases, in front of a...
