McCarthy Trenching with High Up

Holland Performing Arts Center | Scott Recital Hall

For a decade, the duo featuring Dan McCarthy and James Maakestad has been a staple of the city’s music scene and a purveyor of songs that are quintessentially Nebraskan. The evidence is in five celebrated albums of easy acoustic melodies chronicling the likes of Dorothy Lynch and the Ogallala Aquifer.

Joining this 1200 Club performance is High Up, a new Omaha band featuring sisters Christine Fink and Orenda Fink (Azure Ray, O+S, Art in Manila). The band draws from a wide variety of influences, from Sam Cooke to Dead Kennedys, from Screaming Jay Hawkins to Velvet Underground, and blends the genres to create a frenetic live show and sound that is at once old and new.
