Mama, I'm Swollen
These grizzled veterans of Omaha's Saddle Creek Records, whose roster of flagship, heart-on-sleeve punk rockers includes alum and founder Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes, put angsty, guyliner-wearing arena rockers to shame. Tim Kasher's hyper-literate, journal-entry tales of domestic strife continue on the band's sixth full-length, Mama, I'm Swollen. Capgun Coup and Caddywhompus open. Tickets $12.
