City Sounds 4/12: Omaha by krkuchta

Listen to WERW's sounds of Omaha this Monday from 11pm-1am

PREVIEW: VISIT WERW’s Blog

I never thought that any location in Nebraska would be considered a paradise. But in the realm of music, Omaha, Nebraska is an indie paradise. Home of Conor Oberst, Saddle Creek Records and…Conor Oberst (again), who almost hyped up the Omaha scene all by himself. But, of course, one man can’t do it all.

Besides Conor Oberst’s many projects like Bright Eyes, his solo career and the Mystic Valley Band, there have been other huge acts from Omaha. Dance-punk’s The Faint along with the alternative funkiness of 311 have thrown a bit of variety into the Omaha sound. But Omaha’s roots are fairly well planted in alternative, indie and emo. From Cursive to Broken Spindles, it’s heaven out there for any music lover.

That’s not all of course. There’s Digital Leather and the lead singer from Iron Butterfly from the capital of Nebraska! So there isn’t anything you could possibly dislike.

I figured we deserve a trip back to the States after our gig over in Stockholm last Monday. For some good old fashion American emo, listen to City Sounds Monday night from 11pm-1am on WERW.
