Snow Day: Some venues closed, show must go on at others

Hey, it’s snowing. You probably haven’t been outside or been on the Internet if you didn’t already know.

(If you’re staying home tonight and still need to do something musical, I recommend a rental of Dave Grohl’s “Sound City” documentary or a download of a live recording from

Some shows are still on, some have canceled or postponed. I’m updating the following list as I get information. Here we go:

• Slowdown is closed today. The Pleasure Adapter show scheduled for tonight has been rescheduled to March 28. (Next door at Film Streams, all screenings from 7 p.m. on are canceled.)

The Waiting Room has rescheduled tonight’s show with Screaming For Silence. The show will instead place next Tuesday, Feb. 26.

The Barley Street Tavern canceled tonight’s show, which features Indiana singer-songwriter Mike Reeb. The bar will be open for drinkers.

The 21st Saloon has canceled today’s matinee show from the Dan Fowler Group. The Blues Society of Omaha says the bar will be open.

The Hideout will host a show from hardcore band Terror tonight. The band has been driving from Denver with no problems.

• Over at Pageturners Lounge, Dan McCarthy will play some ragtime from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. McCarthy Trenching was scheduled to play at Art & Soul in Lincoln tonight, but cited snow and the fact that “Dan is chicken” for canceling.

• Megapopular buttrockers Hinder are playing a sold out show at the Whiskey Roadhouse in Council Bluffs. The show is still happening.

• In Lincoln, the “Grind Hard Experience” show at the Bourbon Theatre has been canceled.

• Note: Mavis Staples has canceled her show Friday at the Bourbon Theatre for personal reasons (not snow). It will be rescheduled.
