When: 9 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 2
Where: O’Leaver’s Pub, 1322 Saddle Creek Road
Led by Landon Hedges of the Good Life and Desaparedcidos (Conor Oberst, et al.) fame, Little Brazil is a no-BS independently minded rock and roll band from Omaha that never disappoints.
The band has been around for more than a decade, and has never wavered in its approach to crafting music in the vein of mid-90s alt-rock that is close to this Gen Xer's heart. I said "Rock for Gen Xers" in the headline above, but really, Little Brazil's fan base is probably more in the Generation Y set.
Bottom line: Little Brazil is a non-partisan rock band that can reach across the aisle and appeal to all generations. OK, enough out of me on this one. Go see Little Brazil tear it up at O'Leaver's Pub, 1322 Saddle Creek Road, on THURSDAY, Jan. 2.
Warming the stage beginning at 9 p.m. will be See Through Dresses, Dan Mariska & the Boys Choir and Gramps. Cover is $5.
