Indie Rock in Omaha, Nebraska! No joke.

Thanks to Saddle-Creek Records, indie rock in Nebraska is booming. Some bands coming up in indie rock who live in or originated in Nebraska(specifically Omaha) are Bright Eyes, The Faint, Desaparecidos, Tilly and the Wall, Cursive, Broken Spindles, Azure Ray, Criteria, Sorry About Dresden, Beep Beep, Orenda Fink, Son, Ambulance, The Good Life, etc., etc.

If you've ever been to my homestate of Nebraska you'll know it doesn't seem like the place for this kind of stuff; however, the business is booming in Omaha, Nebraska.

Oh.

None of my buddies even believed me when I tried to tell them. And we live in Nebraska.

Sorry, didn't realize it was so well-known.

Hey I live in Omaha, we have a great scene. I have seen the following...

Bright Eyes..twice
Faint..3 times
Criteria...twice
Cursive...once
The Good Life...once
Orenda Fink..3 times
Mayday...once

The Faint by far the best, no one puts on a show like them. If anyone hasn't heard them I suggest you do.
