Crystal Stilts cancel Omaha show

* What appeared to be this weekend's marquee show is now cancelled. Thank you for stealing that Crystal Stilts show, Grinnell College. The New York indie rock band was originally slated to play O'Leaver's Pub, 1322 South Saddle Creek Road, Friday, October 11th. Local band Pleasure Adapter will still play the Eyeball Promotions show, alongside to-be-announced local acts.

* Junkstock's Harvest Edition will feature performances by 11 different local acts during the three-day event, which kicks off Friday, October 11th. The sprawling sale takes place on an old West Omaha dairy farm, 319 South 192nd St. The music line-up, put together by Brad Hoshaw Booking, features the Southpaw Bluegrass Band, Matt Cox, Sarah Benck, Orion Walsh, Prairie Gators, Belles & Whistles, ​All Young Girls Are Machine Guns, ​​​Brad Hoshaw, Midwest Dilemma and ​Ray Michael. Tickets are $5 at the gate daily or $12 for the entire weekend. Visit for more information about the event.

* House of Loom's dance-centric programming is getting a live music twist Friday, October 11th, thanks to a live performance by the Eli James Experience. James combines DJing with live drums and holds down the whole thing himself, crafting his own version of the "modern one man band." James, a drummer, DJ, producer and programmer, conjures up a custom light show that includes his LED-powered Glo-drum kit, which he uses to accompany his on-the-spot DJ selections.

* Local hard rock heroes Emphatic will unveil their second major label album, Another Life, with an in-store signing at Homer's Music, 1210 Howard St, Monday, October 21st at 6 p.m. The band played a hometown show at the Slowdown, 729 North 14th St., last month and currently don't have another scheduled local show.
