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. Yuppies quickly evolved from keyboard-laden lo-fi fuzz-pop to a heavier, meaner twist of noise-rock. Iowa City garage punks deliver a sneering, hurtling take of early hardcore with lean guitar riffs and trashcan-sounding drums. The band's previous shows in town have built up a small cult, thanks in part to their sweaty, shirtless frontman who often ends up sprawled out in the middle of the crowd. Their latest, limited edition LP, BB Gun Picnic, just got a glowing write-up in underground punk zine Maximum Rock'N'Roll.
