The 3rd installment of Daytrotter‘s excellent Barnstormer tour comes by West Liberty tomorrow night with a strong line-up of current indie pop faves.

Corn-Fed Podcast: The Tanks

Corn-Fed Podcast: The Tanks

Below is a podcast of the worst interview I (or possibly anyone else) has ever conducted. On Monday, my co-host, Ben, and I never stood a chance. Once The Tanks walked into the KRUI studios, it was already doomed. We tried discussing the band’s new album (we played a few un-mastered tracks on air), their […]

Captured! By Robots: Robots Takeover Music, Enslave Human

Captured! By Robots: Robots Takeover Music, Enslave Human

When people say that JBOT (Jay Vance) of Captured! By Robots has a screw loose, they mean it literally. Yeah, the man is crazy — he’s been taken over by instrument-equipped robots and forced to tour with their human-hating band for 13 years.

The duo comprised of local concert fixture Ian MacMillian and Zach “Avery” Dowling (a/k/a Goldwater Marmalaid), has already put out a split, an ep, and contributed a new track […]

Preview: HOTT

Iowa City is a tough musical terrain. With a good portion of the young talent in the city only trolling our bars and venues because they’re also students at the University of Iowa, it becomes difficult to forge an attachment when artists, members and even full bands graduate and move on to “greener” pastures. But […]

Freakin' Weekend: 04.08-04.10

Freakin’ Weekend: 04.08-04.10

You recovered from last weekend? Yeah, me neither. Over here I think we’re all a little exhausted still, and maybe feeling a little relief that the main event is over and done with. I don’t blame anyone for laying kinda low this week. But a new weekend is upon us already, and the scene in […]
