By Andrea Kszystyniak / World-Herald staff writer


Looking for something to do this week? We've got you covered.

Hear great local music, check out an arty party or take in some world-class fireworks.

» New Year's Eve Fireworks on Tuesday

Ring in 2014 with the rest of Omaha at this celebration, which starts at 7 p.m. at the Gene Leahy Mall. The fireworks are cued up with a musical score; if you bring your radio and tune it in to Star 104.5, you'll be able to listen along.

» Hear Nebraska Vol. 2 Release Show on Friday

See Universe Contest, Simon Joyner and the Ghosts, Conchance and Pleasure Adapter at this celebration of local music.

Hear Nebraska is launching its new vinyl compilation at The Waiting Room Lounge at 9 p.m. Tickets are $8.

» Murray X-Mas on Friday

Dress like Bill Murray from “Groundhog Day” or “Ghostbusters” and send the holiday season out in style at House of Loom. Make sure you look your best.

At midnight, the best Murrays get a free $20 bar tab. Get in free before 10:30 p.m.; it's $5 after that.
