Dec. 26 Mal Madrigal w/ Our Fox, The Bruces and Before The Toast and Tea Slowdown, 729 N. 14th St. 8 p.m., $6, Winter beckons two of Omaha’s sons, Mal Madrigal’s Stephen Bartolomei and Our Fox’s Ryan Fox. Mal Madrigal headlines with an experimental acoustic indie sound that jumps from slow-burning builds, to shuffling, quasi-tropicalia guitar rock. Bartolomei has continued the band in New York, where he also runs his record imprint Bocca Lupo Records. Bocca Lupo has expanded beyond Mal Madrigal’s vinyl-centric releases by hooking up with Before The Toast and Tea. Meanwhile, Our Fox is more of a Crazy Horse-inspired indie rock band, with touches of Pavement and other slacker indie bands forming Our Fox’s sound.
