When Interpol makes its triumphant return to Omaha after an eight-year absence, they'll be one man down and two men up. Iconic bass player and fashion plate Carlos Dengler, aka Carlos D, no longer is a member of Interpol, having left just after the recording sessions wrapped up for the band's new, self-titled album.

River Rising — Omaha’s indie radio show moves to Sunday afternoons

Is having one good radio station in a city the size of Omaha — a city purported to be one of the “best places to live in America” — too much to ask? Apparently, it is.

World of ‘Wonder’

The title came first for the latest Plain White T’s album, The Wonders of the Younger. T’s songwriter and singer Tom Higgenson had just watched Cirque du Soleil’s “O” in Las Vegas when the phrase popped into his head. Higgenson says he didn’t quite know what the term meant, but he knew it was going to be the creative catalyst for the Chicago band’s sixth album. He says the...
