The venues are starting to fill up for October and November, and there are more shows coming in the following weeks. We will see what December has in store—hopefully some good local lineups and a few shows of interest beyond the holiday-themed events. You will notice another January show on the list as 2024 begins to creep up on us and take hold of our ticket wallets.
I am very excited that Emily Nenni will be performing at Reverb Lounge on September 13th. I am a huge fan of her album On The Ranch and have been digging back into some of her earlier work. She opened for Charley Crockett at The Slowdown last year, and to say she was charming on stage would be an understatement. It was one of my favorite performances of the year, and I cannot wait to see her headline at a venue like Reverb Lounge. Tickets will be on sale at Etix.com
Atmosphere, the Minneapolis hip-hop duo, will be at The Admiral Omaha on November 21st. Atmosphere have over a dozen albums under their belt, and The Rhymesayers artists are touring on their new album, Many Other Realities Exist Simultaneously, which finds them further expanding their sound. The tour is billed as Atmosphere and Friends, and people are wondering who the friends are. I am holding out hope for one of my favorite hip-hop artists in recent years, Sa-Roc, who appears on the new album and is a labelmate of theirs. The pre-Sale starts at 10 a.m. today at AdmiralOmaha.com.
Grammy nominated Reggae band Common Kings will be at The Slowdown on September 24th.

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie is at Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln with Toosii and Kaliii on October 5th. Boogie Wit Da Hoodie is my second favorite current rap name after Young Boy Never Broke Again.
