Conduits shows have been hailed as captivating and remarkable up until the very last second of the performance. Their music will take you on a whirlwind, combining sounds of heavy basslines with entrancing vocals. The Omaha natives are playing at the Slowdown in Omaha this Wednesday. See for yourselves and be mesmerized.

After successfully reaching their ambitious Kickstarter goal of $35,000, local filmmakers Andrew Monbouquette and Dan Susman have now hired an editor to complete the final touches to their urban farming documentary, “Growing Cities”. When they’re not frantically compensating their loyal donors, they enjoy taking breaks alongside their tricked-out truck farm.

Since the first go-around was one hell of a ride, we’re too excited to contain ourselves about getting into the swing of things with the second installment of Benson’s First Friday. On Friday, July 6, expect the same amenities taking over the main drag of Benson, including a 30+ artist showcase, a catwalk fashion show, live music, after-dark street projections and booze. There will also be some new features to stir things up a bit, such as a fully functional kissing booth… YUM! See you out there, folks!

Hey daddy-o, be sure to save yourself some steam this weekend and jet on down to the House of Loom to twist and jive to Sunday’s sock hop. A host of retro clams will be spinning the sounds that emulate poodle skirts and malt shops of the 50’s. Also, Noah Sterba and the Cocktails will clog the stage with an umph-teen amount of musicians playing viciously and vicariously through the Yuppies frontman. It’s sure to be a hell of a gas. More info on the show here.

Hear Nebraska would like to send a big congratulations to the crew behind the local documentary Growing Cities about urban farming. Today, Growing Cities became indieWIRE's project of the month, which gives the filmmakers the opportunity to speak with Sundance. Growing Cities put up a tough fight to the bitter end to pull through with the most votes over several other international films. And to that, we congratulate you, Growing Cities!

Local artist Evan Crown poses outside of Jane’e Health Market with his own creative projections as the backdrop in this photo. Evan provided visual entertainment as the sun dropped into nighttime Friday at Benson’s First Friday. His visuals may have been so mesmerizing that it could have been the cause of a car accident on 61st and Maple. To us, that cause is still yet to be determined.

After multiple premature CD release shows, the wait is finally over for the new Capgun Coup release. “Contextual Doom,” the band’s third album on ORG Music was officially released yesterday and is available to the masses beyond Omaha. It’s a great rock ‘n’ roll cut and everybody should buy the album here. I’m sure we will start seeing these t-shirts available for purchase in the near future before the band takes off for a month-long L.A. residency in the next few weeks.
