<p>Joe Krown Trio </p>Full Of Giving

This is the final weekend of benefit activities for the seventh annual Lash LaRue Toy Drive for the children of the Pine Ridge Reservation. Last week’s events hit a couple of bumps in the road when the CDs did not arrive in time for the CD release party. Then the Huskers’ loss effectively killed the attendance at Saturday’s late night Waiting Room show. However, the Blues Society holiday...

Music Issue 2010: Brothers In Amps

How important is the work of Mike and AJ Mogis? The brothers have been involved with every significant indie music recording produced in Nebraska for the past 20 years. It’s that simple. Along with Saddle Creek Records (which they were involved in creating), their studio work is a common denominator that runs through the entire story of Nebraska’s rise as an internationally known hub for...

Music Issue 2010: In Memory — It’s True!

I’ve probably told you the story about the first time I heard Adam Hawkins play. It was in the basement at an after-hours party in midtown Omaha. I’d seen his ungraceful entrance to the party — somehow slipping and falling up the uphill driveway — and so I was perhaps even more impressed when he strummed an acoustic guitar and intoned striking lyrics to a soon-to-be rapt crowd in the...

Music Issue 2010: Top 20/Next 10

The process of compiling our fifth annual lists of the area’s Top 20 Bands and the up-and-coming Next 10 felt a little different this year. In a local musical landscape that’s seen an abundance of breakups, stalled ensembles and splintered side projects, it was tougher to make decisions. But there is still considerable talent among us, as our lists (in no particular order) reveal. Perhaps...
