Mousetrap w/ Mercy Rule, Noah’s Ark Was A Spaceship and The Stay Awake

Dec. 29 Mousetrap w/ Mercy Rule, Noah’s Ark Was A Spaceship and The Stay Awake Waiting Room, 6212 Maple St. 9 p.m., $8, onepercentproductions.com While attending Central High School in the mid ’90s, all the cool kids had Mousetrap 45s, attended their shows or sported a sticker on their notebooks. They were the indie-rock band back then and a part of the very beginning of Omaha’s then-blossoming local music scene. Formed in May 1988, guitarist Pat Buchanan, bassist Craig Crawford and former drummer Scott Miller became known for their intense live shows. A stripped down, punk rock aesthetic and driving rhythms made them irresistible. Combined with Buchanan’s charisma both on stage and off, they were a formula for success. Unfortunately, they disbanded in 1998 after a couple of break-ups and relocation to Chicago. Luckily for Omaha, they will reunite this month with Lincoln legends Mercy Rule, another innovative trio that helped shape the basement rock scene in Nebraska. Anyone who was a fan of both bands back in the day will not want to miss this show.
