There's some good shows going on this weekend, all of them local.
Who's going out this weekend?
• Omaha rapper Jimmy Hooligan takes the stage tonight at Slowdown. $10 tickets
• See rockabilly band the Blacktop Ramblers tonight at the Waiting Room. $7 at the door.
• It ain't a concert, but O'Leaver's will have its Men Of O'Leaver's 2012 calendar available on Saturday. I've seen some of the images and they are both glorious and disturbing. There's a release party/signing at 9 p.m.
• Also at the Waiting Room this weekend is the Hootenanny on Sunday. A bunch of local musicians will be playing and jamming to raise money for the Gifford Park Teen Market Garden. $5 at the door.
• If you like the Doors, you should head to Slowdown's front room on Sunday. The Lizard King, a Doors tribute band, features a lot of talented, local guys. $7 tickets.
