Outdoor concerts will be in the parking lot east of Slowdown.

Downtown Omaha music venue Slowdown has been dormant for months.

But the venue is coming back for a series of socially distant outdoor concerts starting next weekend.

Launched in partnership with Maha Music Festival, which canceled its annual event, the series will host bands on weekends from Sept. 18 through Oct. 3.

The outdoor concerts will take place in the parking lot to the east of Slowdown. Distributed throughout the lot will be 10-person-capacity pods where groups of fans can stand or sit in lawn chairs. The sections cannot be moved or combined.

Face masks that cover the nose and mouth are required for entry and when moving about the venue, and masks are encouraged but not required within your pod.

Fans are asked to have their tickets and IDs ready when they arrive and follow markings on the ground. Bags or purses larger than 5 inches by 6 inches are not allowed. Reentry is not permitted.

Hand sanitizer is available throughout the venue and high-touch areas will be cleaned frequently.

Tickets for the concerts are available at

  • Sept. 18 — Clarence Tilton with Pony Creek.
  • Sept. 19 — Rhythm Collective with Ro Hempel, Dereck Higgins.
  • Sept. 25 — Kolby Cooper with Pecos & the Rooftops.
  • Sept. 26 — Andra Von Kampen with Matt Cox.
  • Oct. 2 — Petrock.
  • Oct. 3 — Mesonjixx with And How, Cameron Logsdon, Angi Sada, Those Far Out Arrows, DJ Kethro
