"LBF Preview - Omega Dog"

Saturday, 21 November 2009

Omega Dog has only been together for eight months, but the band has quickly played multiple shows around Des Moines. Their dedication to practice and songwriting has earned them shows at People’s Court, the Vaudeville Mews, El Bait Shoppe, the Longest Yard, A.K. O’Connors and the Briar Patch Festival.

Omega Dog’s music is “a psychedelic, musical multi-sensory experience,” says Jen Wiater, who plays keys, flute, djembe and provides vocals for the band. Other band members include Steve Pellow on bass, guitar, drums and vocals, Nick Loffredo on drums and Charlie Urie on guitar.

Each member’s unique musical background has allowed them to create music that is rich with layers of musical texture and emotion. They mostly play their own songs, but also do a few covers of musicians like The Grateful Dead, Sublime and Tom Petty. Omega Dog has already recorded their first album, for which they’ll have two record-release shows: December 11 at the Longest Yard at 9 p.m., and December 13 at El Bait Shoppe at 7 p.m.

Catch Omega Dog Saturday night at People's Court for Little Big Fest!
