Scenefest 2 Hype

You gotta hand it to Tery Daly, the guy behind Lincoln website Star City Scene. No one, and I mean no one, is as successful as Tery getting his events play in the local newspapers. With Scenefest II, he repeated what he got done media-wise with Scenefest I -- preview articles in Omaha's major daily and all the local weeklies for a show that features all Lincoln-based indie bands. Tery, how do you do it? It's gotta be volume!
Anyway, Tery bugged me, too. So here's some hype for his sequel to Scenefest, three days of Lincoln bands playing at Duffy's starting tonight, where the three stand-outs are The Terminals, Dave Goldberg's (ex-Carsinogents) new band, Charlie Burton (local legend) and Ideal Cleaners (former Drive By Honky people with a new single on Speed! Nebraska). Saturday's line-up, uh, I haven't heard any of them before. Sunday's show closes with Marianas, who have created a buzz in Omaha with their EP Onward + Upward. Scenefest is $6 a night or $15 for a three-day ticket. Find out more at Starcityscene.com.
