Weekend Shows: Ladyfinger album release, Benson First Friday and The Menzingers

As always, there are plenty of good opportunities to listen to live music this weekend. These are my picks for the things that you should check out.

• Ladyfinger’s release show tonight with The Seen will be a good one at The Waiting Room Lounge. As mentioned in my column, Ladyfinger will hopefully add a keyboard and/or organ player. Plus their new album rocks. It’s a 9 p.m. show. $8.

• It’s also Benson First Friday, so there’s lots of events and shows going down in the Benson neighborhood. Should be some good stuff to find out.

• Hot Water Music plays with The Menzingers and La Dispute on Saturday at Slowdown.  HearNebraska.org’s Bryce Wergin has a lengthy interview with The Menzingers’ Tom May. It’s an 8 p.m. show and a hefty $20 to get in.

• Also on Saturday is the Omaha Symphony’s “James Bond and Beyond” concert. I did a lengthy write-up over at Omaha.com.

• Sunday is the Super Bowl, and (though some of you will mock it) most of you will be watching that. In fact, I can’t find a single show going on Sunday night. Enjoy the football.
