Lincoln Calling Staff Picks

Author: Writers Staff


An indie rock band from Omaha, this band brings a great, laid-back flow with melodic guitar and hypnotic vocals. This band came out with their most recent album titled “On the Mend” this year and every song gives me the urge to drink a craft beer by the beach. They play Saturday at 8pm at 1867 and, if you like them, they play again on October 14th in Omaha at O’Leaver’s with popular Colorado band, Slow Caves.


Andrea Von Kampen:

This Lincoln singer-songwriter sings with a pure, mesmerizing tone. Her easy-to-listen-to tunes, like “Trainsong”, have got our staff catching feels they haven’t felt in years. If you get a chance, we recommend seeing this beautiful artist on Saturday at 7:30pm at the Zoo Bar. You won’t be disappointed.


Acid Dad:

An alternative rock band from Brooklyn, NY, Acid Dad is a group of guys with a 90s energy that resonates through their music. This Nirvana-like band takes a punk twist and truly makes their music their own. Songs like “Fool’s Gold” and “Brain Body” encourage our inner angsty teen to move with the music and tell our parents that “it’s not a phase”. Check them out on Thursday at Duffy’s around 8pm and wear your most ripped black skinny jeans.


The Way Out:

This 4 piece alternative punk band from Ashland, NE is sure to at least get your head nodding to the beat. Editor-in-Chief Maura Gillan is a personal fan of lead singer Mari Crisler’s vocals and imaginative lyrics. Having just released a full album earlier this month, you can catch The Way Out’s debut album “Good Grief” along with their latest work “Automatic Writing” on Spotify. Or better yet, see them live performing for Lincoln Calling, Friday September 29th, 6pm at the Bourbon.


Mount Moriah:

This folkish country band from Durham, NC is always a treat to listen to while hanging out with friends or chilling by yourself doing homework. Their mellow sound and poetic songwriting hold within them an artful story uncovered with each line. Catch them tonight at 12:45 at The Zoo Bar and see for yourself.
