Maha tix winner; Maha fest coverage
Congratulations to Brendan Greene-Walsh, winner of two tickets to the Maha Music Festival. And thanks to the folks at Maha for hooking him up.

As for Maha, I wrote a lot about it for today's paper. Here's the skinny:
• More from my exclusive interview with Spoon. Find the first part here.
• Superchunk plays Omaha for the first time and debuts songs from "Majesty Shredding"
• The fellas in The Faint are focusing on their other projects. But the band isn't breaking up.
• Rhett Miller from The Old 97's is excited about the band's new album, which comes out in October.
• Info on what's allowed, not allowed, tips, tickets, food and the afterparties at Maha.

Maha will be the last show for It's True (or the last two shows since they're playing the fest and an afterparty at the Waiting Room).
Everyone's wondering what's going to be next. Is it really the end? What's Adam Hawkins going to do?
First, they really are broken up. Saturday's shows are it.
And I'm sure someone somewhere will keep hearing those songs from Hawkins, but probably not around Omaha very often. At the moment, Hawkins is living in his hometown of Des Moines. And he's planning on moving to Denver in a few months. So if you're an It's True fan, get your ass to Maha.
