March 25 The Envy Corps w/ Thunder Power, My Pal Dragon, & Lonely Estates The Waiting Room, 6212 Maple Street, 9 p.m., $8, With the convergence of indie bands over the last few years, even the most brilliant of artists can be swept under the rug only to be rediscovered in record store discount bins. Such can be said for Ames, Iowa’s The Envy Corps, a band with a legit, yet small national and international fan base who have yet to break through the mainstream ceiling like some of their peers. “It’s almost more about your association with other bands or your Twitter feed or your perception from the indie blogosphere,” divulged lead singer Luke Pettipoole. Whatever the case may be, they are due for a breakthrough soon with their exceptional blend of shoegaze instrumental rock similar to early Coldplay. With their frequent visits to Omaha, the band has acquired a family here that will no doubt help propel them into bigger success.
