Omaha Music Gives featuring Rock Paper Dynamite, The Seen, Gordon and A Wasted Effort
Doors at 7:00pm
As part of the Omaha Community Foundation’s Omaha Gives event encouraging 24 hours of digital giving to local non-profits, we’re asking you to make a contribution to the organizations putting Omaha's music scene on the map.
To give this day the attention it deserves, we're celebrating the only way we know how! Join us at Slowdown for good friends, great music, and an incredible reason to rock.

The music committee met earlier this week and went through all 118 submissions for the summer showcase; our highest response ever!
This is going to be the biggest showcase yet going from 60 or so bands to almost 80 thanks to a couple of extra venues signing on and teaming up with Benson First Friday.
We are now in the process of putting bands in time slots in the seven venues over two days!
Mark June 7th and 8th down on the calendar...this one is going to be insane!

We are now accepting submissions from bands and musicians for the Omaha Entertainment Awards Summer Showcase which will be held June 7 and 8 in Benson at six to seven venues both nights.
This will be our biggest showcase to date. We are teaming up with Benson First Friday this year and will be announcing a visual artist submission process soon. This announcement is just for bands and musicians. Please submit your band (solo artist-etc.) info, website, link to music and any special day, time and age requirements to Oeashowcase@gmail.com. We will be able to answer questions through that email address also.
This is open to all bands and solo musicians in the Omaha and Lincoln area which includes outlying areas both in Nebraska and Iowa within reason. Spots are limited and we usually get twice the submissions as we have spots. It is not first come...but curated. Our deadline for submissions is April 18. We will email bands and artists the acceptance emails and time slots soon after with all of the needed information. One band or artist will be voted on by the public at this showcase to open the Maha Music Festival on Saturday, August 17.
Public nominations will open starting June 7 at www.oea-awards.com and run through the end of August. We thank all bands, visual artists, those in the performing arts and fans of Omaha culture for their support. 2012 was our best year and we are very excited to try to exceed that this year.
