Hi There,

My husband and I are visiting Omaha for the first time in a couple of weeks and we were looking for places to go out at night. Our tastes run to the punk/psychobilly/rockabilly type genres. Are there any bars or clubs that we should check out? Also, are there any particular neighborhoods that seem to cater to the tattoo'd and multi-colored hair set? Thanks!

Brother's around 40th and Farnam, The 49r on 49th and Dodge, and Bones on 10th near Pacific St all come to mind first.

I would say that The 49'r and Brothers are the best places for that type of music. O'Leavers also is a place you may want to check out, but they do more hardcore and indie music. Look at their website and check out the schedule.

Default Punk BillyRock bars

The Slowdown located north of downtown was started by Saddle Creek Music (Bright Eyes, Cursive etc).

The Waiting Room in Benson has many shows.

Not a bar but some of the best shows will be at Sokol Auditorium in South Omaha

1% productions <- omaha music promoter. This will tell you who is playing where

Ah psychobilly isn't what it used to be. Is it J.R.? God rest your soul.

Thanks for the suggestions and links! Hopefully something fun will be going on next weekend As for the Midwest psycho scene, well, it could be better. At least where I live in Kansas City, there are about 4 of us who are really into it and a handful of others who enjoy it. Mad Sin played here a couple years ago and there were maybe 15 people at the show. Very depressing and they'll never come back, I'm sure. Why would they when they can sell out shows on the coasts? Sigh...
