Galvanized Tron and J. Stephens Music are holding an open casting call for Galvanized Tron’s next music video. The casting session will be at McFly’s, 4503 Center St., Saturday, March 19 at noon. You must be at least 18 to audition. Direct any questions to info@jstephensmusic.com. Glavanized Tron is a Jacksonville, Fla. hip-hop artist who now lives in Omaha. * Congratulations to Noah’s Ark Was a Spaceship on what appeared to be a very successful CD release party last Friday at The Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St. The band celebrated the release of their new album Hanga-Fang , out now on Slumber Party Records. The Waiting Room was more than two-thirds full most of the night, as Yuppies, The Answer Team and the Ideal Cleaners rocked the house. Then Noah’s Ark ripped through some of their best alternative rock reinventions. * The show of the week belongs to The Drive-By Truckers, who continue to expand their appeal to a cross-section of fans from classic rockers to jam band hippies and indie rock/alt.country points in-between. While Patterson Hood has cemented his role as the spiritual center of the band, Mike Cooley brought plenty of great rock moments to the Sunday night set at The Slowdown, 729 N. 14th St. The set’s highlight, however, was still Hood’s as he led into “18 Wheels of Love” with a spoken intro about how his mother inspired the song. Set opener “Used To Be a Cop” also verified its standing as the best song on the Truckers’ new record Go-Go Boots ; it set the blood-pumping pulse of the band’s entire 100-minute-plus show. * If you’ll allow me to be self-serving for a minute, I’d be remiss to not plug White Mystery and their Tuesday, March 8 show at the Barley Street Tavern, 2735 N. 62nd St. I helped set-up the show for this great two-piece garage duo from Chicago, who are on their way to the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. The show is $6 and features Peace of Shit and Snake Island!
