I went to college with this guy named Andy Norman. We weren’t best friends by any means, but we worked at the Daily Nebraskan together and he was always so nice and friendly and just fun to be around.
I haven’t gotten to meet Andy’s wife, Angie, yet, but from everything I hear she’s just as cool.
Anyway, these two awesome people are now running an awesome website all about local music.
Go there. Go there now and often. It really is awesome. Concert reviews, CD reviews, music videos, a calendar of events, profiles of local musicians (do you know how many talented local musicians we have in this town? Lincoln, too? It’s unbelievable). I’m so happy hearnebraska exists to give this music scene the attention it deserves.
In fact, if hearnebraska had a paying gig right now, you better believe I’d be knocking down their door.
That’s how much I believe in what they’re doing.
So when Angie Norman offered up today’s giveaway, I was THRILLED.
Up for grabs: A copy of “Hear Nebraska, Vol. 1,” the first in a series of compilation CDs planned by Andy and Angie and crew AND free entry to Saturday’s CD release party at the Sydney in downtown Benson. More event info here.
Only 150 CDs were printed. They’re on sale for $15 apiece. Entry to Saturday’s show is $5.
AND leave a comment about your favorite musician/song/artist on this post to be entered to win! I’ll draw the winner Saturday late morning.
