Jan. 8 Hear Nebraska Benefit w/ The Answer Team, Irkustk, All Young Girls Are Machine Guns and Djangis Khan O’Leaver’s, 1322 S. Saddle Creek Rd. 9:30 p.m., $5, 21+, hearnebraska.org Great things are in store on the web for the local music scene in 2011. Hear Nebraska takes it statewide, Jan. 24, with the launch of hearnebraska.org. (Before then you can find the group on Facebook.) The site will take on an ambitious schedule, covering a wide range of music topics and networking bands and fans statewide. This is one of a cluster of upcoming events for the site including a show Feb. 5 at The Sydney with Little, Brazil, Mercy Rule and Ideal Cleaners, and another Feb. 6 at Duffy’s in Lincoln with Conduits, Kill Country, Down With Ship and Manny Coon. Headed by Reader colleague Andrew Norman, the site just solidified its non-profit status, differentiating it from those sustained by advertising. Tonight at O’Leaver’s The Answer Team, Irkustk, All Young Girls Are Machine Guns and Djangis Khan come together to support the new initiative, with a portion of proceeds going to Hear Nebraska.
