Omaha Rocks

The inside back cover of Spin Magazine’s July issue profiles “Omaha—Rock City.” It’s clearly an editorial segment from Spin, but the line between lifestyle content of this sort and a paid advertisement is pretty thin. Whatever the intention, it’s a Chamber of Commerce type listing for Omaha’s music business.
The feature mentions artists Simon Joyner, Tilly and the Wall, The Show is the Rainbow, Outlaw Con Bandana, Sarah Benck and the Robbers, Ladyfinger (ne), plus the city’s best venues, like Sokol, The Waiting Room, Slowdow, O’Leaver’s Pub and Barley Street Tavern.



About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
