Doin’ it for Sugar and Bette Swanson

The musical Sugar sports one song with a fighting chance to send you home singing its title, “Doin’ It For Sugar.” Change that slightly to “doin’ it for Bette” and it comes closer to the spirit of a preview performance at the Bellevue Little Theatre.

A pre-show tribute honored Bette Swanson, its producer who is stepping down from that role after producing 27 years at the BLT, including two earlier goes at this...

Pick: Now, Now

April 12
Now, Now w/ The Lonely Forest, Millions of Boys
The Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St.
9 p.m., $12, onepercentproductions.com

Minneapolis indie pop act Now, Now first call to mind similarly put-together alternative pop acts like Tegan & Sara, but there's a coarser, rockier spirit on the band's 2012 album Threads that morphs the band's sound towards the sort of smoldering music written by the likes...

Pick: The Pines

April 13
The Pines w/ Brad Hoshaw
The Slowdown, 729 North 14th St.
9 p.m., $8 in advance/$10 at the door, theslowdown.com

A New ‘King’ at the Box Office

Slam poetry festival to hold team finals

As the Louder Than a Bomb Omaha Youth Poetry Festival draws to a close after weeks of preliminary bouts and last Sunday’s semi-finals, it appears slam poetry is a new outlet for that rite-of-passage known as adolescence.

The 2013 team finals pitting defending champion Duchesne, Lincoln North Star, Lincoln High and Omaha Central are April 12 at 7 p.m. in the Hixson-Lied Auditorium at Creighton University's Harper...
