go (no exclamation)
Today's paper has a copy of the go section. Pick up a copy of the World-Herald today, or look for free copies of GO at bars and restaurants tomorrow.
You may also check it out online, also for free. Here's what we got this week:
• The Maha Music Festival is an all-day concert on Saturday. Headliners are Dashboard Confessional and G. Love & Special Sauce. I also have interviews with Appleseed Cast's Chris Crisci and Justin Kennedy of Army Navy.
In the Appleseed Cast article, Crisci also told me about his new project, Old Canes, which is releasing through Saddle Creek in October. He's "dying" to tour, and I'm pretty excited to see Old Canes when the band finally hits the road.
• Also this weekend (starting tonight, I believe) is the Nebraska Pop Festival, which has a bunch of indie bands from Omaha and Lincoln and around the country. A few bands are also stopping by from overseas.
• I know you're all dying to see Hall & Oates, so I also wrote a little something about the bands at the Nebraska State Fair. I probably wouldn't drive to Lincoln to see any of these bands, but maybe you live there. Or maybe you got dragged to the fair and seeing Steppenwolf is better than going on the Ferris wheel again. Or maybe you're just a huge Tony Orlando fan. Whatever floats your boat, dude. I won't judge.
