ColoradoHusk forced me to go down memory lane talking about the old days of hitting concerts.
In Omaha, I used to hit Ranch Bowl, Lift Ticket, Peony Park, Cog Factory, Sokol, few others I cannot remember. In Lincoln, Duffy's and Drumstick Bar had good music scenes though I do not remember much (alcohol).
The shows that I recal vividly:
Seeing Nirvana for free at the Lift Ticket with less than 100 people. Showed up by accident. Never liked the band but awesome show.
Red Hot Chili Pepper's at the Ranch Bowl. Also at the Ranch Bowl, had a beverage with Mike Watt after Firehose show. Years later, I worked with Ed from Ohio's (lead singer) cousin who happen to be at the same show. He didn't remember me but he recalled an underage kid drinking with the band ;-)
Fugazi at Peony Park and hung out with Ian Mackaye afterwards. Straight edge so nothing illegal
What's your memory of concerts and/or venues in the area? Hard to believe so many are no longer around...
