Musically and culturally, Nebraska is a state that can continue to surprise visitors on each return.

It's easy to discover Omaha's punk and hardcore scenes, as well as a thriving hip-hop and indie music culture. The alternative "Omaha sound" has made its way around the world through contemporary bands such as Bright Eyes - including Conor Oberst's solo catelogue - The Faint, and Cursive.
