I've never had the chance to go to Omaha, Neb., but from what I've gathered over the years, the city is a bit of a music mecca. Thanks in large part to the success of Conor Oberst and his many projects over the years, there is no shortage of bands to satisfy the population's indie-rock needs, and as in many scenes, you'll find that there is a lot of cross pollination between bands and projects.

Such is the case for Tilly & the Wall, with several members having played with Bright Eyes or other known Omaha acts. They have all of the elements of indie cool, including a tap dancer in lieu of a drummer, theatrical performances and costuming. The band has been around for just shy of a decade but if you're a Sirius listener, you've definitely heard them frequently on XMU.

You can catch the band in all its glory at the Casbah for Anti-Monday League. With Y La Bamba and Icky Blossoms rounding out the lineup, you're in for a Monday night treat.
