Deathtrap Audience Goes from Horror to Hilarity

Bob Hope sang, “Thanks for the memories,” but Deathtrap has me singing thanks for few memories. I’d seen the 1990 version at the Omaha Community Playhouse and the movie with Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve, but that didn’t spoil the suspense.

Pick: Yuppies & Solid Attitude

Brothers Lounge, 3812 Farnam St.
9 p.m., $5, 21+

Yuppies are going on hiatus after headlining this bar show, as bassist Jeff Sedrel is moving away. In their absence, Omaha will be missing out on an excellent slcie of angular post-punk garage rock.
