Freakin’ Weekend: 01.22-01.24

That was fuckin’ sweet.

My Dear Disco @ Physical Challenge / Picador / 10pm / FREE
You know about Physical Challenge, the Picador’s weekly installment of dance grooves and sleaze, but do you know My Dear Disco? The Michigan combo will be stopping off to play the upstairs of the club this week in support of their recently released sophomore effort Dancethink. Not your typical fare either - this band, which features six members on various instruments, promises to bring an intriguing style to your normal Thursday night routine. They’ll be back at the Mill in March, so get a free taste tomorrow night. $2 if yr under 21 (19+ only, kiddos).

Porno Galactica w. School of Flyentology, Cuticle, Single Indian Tear / Mill / 9pm / $6
Well, we’d be lying if we said this wasn’t the most excited we’ve been about a show in a hot minute, so full disclosure: Porno Galactica is playing this show in support of their debut mixtape, which is out on Mission Freak Records, calling this website home. In addition, Single Indian Tear features our own Craig Eley (with collaborator/genius David Z. Morris), so we’ve got a lot at stake in this electronica/out music show. Mainstays of Iowa City dance School of Flyentology and Cuticle make this a party. Download Porno Galactica’s Mixtape Vol. 1 right here.

The Parish Festival w. Twelve Canons, Olivia Rose Muzzy, Banjo Kellie / Mill / 9pm / $6
We will certainly head to the Mill again to nurse our hangovers with a much more serene evening of music. Davenport’s the Parish Festival are piecing together a string of winter shows across the Midwest to support their debut Handshakes and Heartaches. H&H is likely to please indie folkers and fans of traditional folk and bluegrass too. They are joined by an all-star lineup of Iowa City’s alternative yet acoustic movement.
