Cold Cream 8/4: The Official Blues Brothers Revue

It’s a summer custom at the Omaha Community Playhouse to import a theatrical package of light seasonal fun. In recent years, they’ve brought us an entertaining scholastic nun and man as cave man.

3 Questions With Cold Cave

July 31
Cold Cave w/ Austra, Touch People
The Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St.
9 p.m., $10 advance/$12 day-of-show, onepercentproductions.com

There’s a sense of anonymity, of hiding, when it comes to Cold Cave. The album covers don’t feature principal member Wes Eisold. Instead there’s a picture of a woman on each. Inside, the starkness is present, but on the latest album, 2011’s Cherish the Light Years,...
