Hear Nebraska takes over public television

On air this May

* Catch some local music on Nebraska's public television outlet Nebraska Educational Television throughout May. NET will air three installments of "Hear Nebraska - Live at the 1200 Club" with each new episode premiering Sunday evenings. The first half-hour episode featuring a full-length set by Americana indie folk act Kill County aired Sunday, May 4th. Indie rock husband-wife duo Big Harp will be featured May 11th and Digital Leather's noisy synth punk will take the stage May 18th. All episodes will be available for streaming on YouTube as well as airing statewide on NET. A hourlong recap special on the concert, which was filmed at Omaha's Holland Center in June 2013, will air May 20th. NET and Hear Nebraska, a nonprofit media outlet that highlights Nebraska's music scene, co-sponsored the production. Check show times at netnebraska.org.

* Mitch Gettman now has a new music video to help spread the word about his just-released new album Stop Living Like It's the End of the World. The clip for the album track "Stay a Little Longer", which is available online via YouTube, features Gettman nearly shrouded in saturating sunlight. It's a perfect fit for the fuzzy, power-pop gem of a track. For more on Gettman and his new album, visit mitchgettman.bandcamp.com.
