Capgun Coup

Capgun Coup first broke out into the Omaha music scene in late 2006 when they signed with Conor Oberst’s label: Team Love.  Immediately the band decided to take their material to the recording studio and lay some tracks down.  So, in late 2007 the band released their first full-length record entitled Nebraskafish and made indie rockers toes tap and bodies shake with their high intensity pop-rock beats.

What’s really awesome about this band is that fact that the members of Capgun Coup: Sam Martin, Greg Elsasser, Eric Ohlsson and Andy Matz have all lived in Omaha for a majority of their lives and all attended Millard West High School.  Once they graduated, they all decided to live the lifestyle of a want-to-be rock star, by moving into the legendary Hotel Frank (which is a shabby house on the corner of 38th and Farnam where The Faint, Conor Oberst, and other epic bands started off). It is at Hotel Frank where the band initially grabbed the attention of the underground Omaha scene.

From the Slowdown, to Hotel Frank, and any basement in-between, you can catch a Capgun Coup show in a venue near you since they just started touring again on September 2nd!  To checkout a lineup of their shows you can look-up their schedule on their MySpace page.
