A rumbling all-ages crowd piled into a smog-coated Duffy’s Tavern around 8 p.m. Wednesday night when Lincoln ska band Mad Dog and the 20/20’s stormed the stage. The lineup also included Prude Boys and Histrionic.
The Second Annual Great Plains Fest took place on Saturday. This DIY Festival brought several genres together for a night of great music in the parking lot of Great Plains Cycle Supply.
It was a nice night for a concert on Thursday. This season of Stransky Park concerts are quickly approaching an end, but that didn't stop the massive crowd from soaking in the music provided by Emily Bass & The Near Miracle.
The annual two-day festival celebrates the anniversary of the legendary blues bar, The Zoo Bar. This year's ZooFest celebrates the 46th anniversary of The Zoo Bar. The lineup includes acts like Junior Brown, Mike Zito, Empire Strikes Brass, Mavis Staples and more.
Nikki Lane and Band Of Horses played to a sold out crowd at Lincoln's Bourbon Theatre. Both bands are here from South Carolina, (Nikki Lane from Greenville and Band of Horses from Charleston).
The Ghost of Paul Revere played a show at The Bourbon Theatre with Andrea Von Kampen. The Maine-based Folk group is on a small tour of the Central U.S. before heading to a couple of dates in Europe in August.
Minneapolis-based Band, Annie and the Bang Bang arrived in Lincoln for the last show on their Summer tour. The group is self-described as "grunge meets late '60s rock," and played the Duffy's Tavern stage with Lincoln's own Red Cities.
Not even the scorching summer heat prevented Salt Creek from engulfing The Bay in chill vibes on the night of its EP release show for “If You Were There.” The Lincoln-natives released the four-track EP Friday following and the release of the EP’s single “What You Would Hear” in June.
