The Lincoln rock scene will invade downtown Omaha when The Zooeys with The Credentials and A Band Called Hemingway play at Slowdown on May 14. Starting off the night will be A Band Called Hemingway and their infectious 2000s pop punk sound. In addition to a pair of EPs, the group’s most recent release, a cover of “Jingle Bell Rock,” might make an appearance. Next in the batting order are The Credentials, who have grown as a local favorite in the past few years. Bringing a grittier sound, the four-piece is ready to play songs off their 2020 debut album Natural. Headlining and closing out the night are The Zooeys with their offering of familiar and vintage rock and roll. These three young bands with sounds influenced from past decades are on the rise. This is the perfect opportunity to see them all under one roof. The all-ages show costs $8 a ticket and will be played in the venue’s main room due to COVID-19 restrictions. The show starts at 8 p.m. and is expected to end at 11.
