After paying over $260 on VIP tickets for my friends and I for their NYE bash, I am feeling extremely angry and ripped off. While waiting calling for our ride inside the breezeway at the end of our night, my friend and I were harrassed by their thug off-duty cops hired for security. Keep in mind, it is 16 degrees outside and there are at least 10 other people waiting inside the breezeway. After trying to understand exactly what the three cops (I'm not sure why that small space takes three security people) were yelling over each other, my friend and her boyfriend turned to walk out the doors to wait for our ride while I stayed inside the doors so I could hear the other end of my phone call. Two cops decided to follow her to the door and shove her to the ground outside, completely undeserved as she was already on her way out. One cop even fell on top her then proceeded to push himself up on her and leave her on the ground. I was so shocked I hung up my phone call and asked why that was necessary. The cop that fell on my friend then grabbed my shoulders hard and started shoving me out the doors. I had to push his hands off because he was grabbing me so hard it was painful. He said I was going to get a felony because of it. I'm pretty sure if you're an off-duty officer you're not supposed to pose as being on-duty, I will check on that though. We were later told by onlookers that what happened was completely undeserved. It's disgusting that we were treated this way and really a shame that nobody has done anything about it. Waking up on New Year's Day, my friend is covered in scrapes and bruises from the incident and we have photos to prove it. Happy New Year Slowdown, plan on hearing from us again.

Great shows, not too fancy but very nice atmosphere. Quality venue for local music and other fun stuff like the Science Cafe.

I was at the Slowdown to see Conor Oberst & the Mystic Valley band. I am a minor but my boyfriend is 21. Because he is old enough to drink, he bought a beer. The security guard thought he saw my boyfriend give me his beer, which didn't actually happen. He kicked us out of the show, and didn't even talk to us to hear what actually happened. Being half Native American, I feel as though I was racially profiled due to many stereotypes about my race. The security guard passed by at least 4 (caucasian) minors who actually had alcoholic beverages in hand and did nothing. But because of my ethnicity, he proceeded to kick me out without any question. I wasn't offered a breathalyzer test or even asked my side of the story. Instead, he kicked me out of the show based clearly on the color of my skin. Safe to say if you are going to the Slowdown to have a good time, beware. The Security guards are clearly bigoted and intolerable of other races. Being an Omaha native, I am sad to say this will be my last time attending any shows at this venue. It is sad to see race as an issue in 2013.

If you actually enjoy going to shows, the Slowdown is not the place to go. The employees are all really uptight. They like kicking people out for no reason. I get bad vibes when I go in there. Most of the people who go to shows here are stuck up and probably have never gone to a real show in their lives.
