A Small List Of Awesome Nebraska Live Music Venues

Sokol Underground
Shadows Fall at Sokol

1) Sokol Auditorium / Underground

City: Omaha, NE
Capacity: 1,500

The Sokol Auditorium is home to many events, but their rock concerts are classically awesome. Never mind the vintage pro audio system with blown speakers or the over priced alcohol at the bar, this place is magical.

I've seen so many shows here that I've lost count... Black Label Society, Shadows Fall, Lamb Of God, Stone Sour, Hatebreed, Terror... just to name a few. If you've haven't experienced a Sokol show, do it, you're going to love it.

PRO TIP: If you're attending a show downstairs a.k.a. The Underground, avoid the "Pole Of Death" in the moshpit.


The Otherside
The Otherside

2) The Otherside

City: Kearney, NE
Capacity: N/A

This venue has changed hands a few times in the past decade. I remember when it was The Garage, then later it was Nick's On The Bricks, and now it's The Otherside. Inside the venue you will find two floors of bars and an outdoor patio area.

Downstairs is where you'll find the stage, that's were the action happens. Let's see... I've seen Egypt Central, Slantpiece, MFS, TenDead, and more at this venue. It's a great venue located in Kearney and you should check it out.
