Feature Interview: Oui Bandits; The Stay Awake, Derrick Higgins tonight...
Just placed online, an interview with the incomparable Oui Bandits (story here). This Sunday night at Slowdown Jr., the guys are celebrating the release of their vinyl-only debut, Mattress in the Afternoon, on I'm Drinking This Records, the used-to-be-cassette-only label that's released tapes by a ton of locals including Talking Mountain, Flamboyant Gods, Flowers Forever, even Tilly and the Wall. Now they're branching out to vinyl. Can CDs be far behind? Well, as I mention in the story, every copy of Mattress… comes with a CDR (I'm surprised that it didn't also come with a cassette copy). Check it out.
Barring a major ice storm, there are some good shows going on tonight:
At The Waiting Room, noise-punk-math band The Stay Awake take the stage with fellow noise-punkers Techlepathy. 9 p.m., $7. Meanwhile, just down the block at The Barley St. Tavern, Derrick Higgins Band headlines a show that features Omaha escapees Drakes Hotel and Sleep Said the Monster, $5, 9 p.m. Finally, down at Slowdown Jr., three bands that I've never heard of -- Theanti, Kate Davis and Uncle Ghost -- play a show with Omaha darlings Honeybee. $7, 9 p.m.
--Got comments? Post 'em here.--
