May Day Music Recap at the Blue Moose Tap House (VIDEO)

Posted by Drew Bulman | May 4, 2010 | Arts & Entertainment

Local rock legends of Iowa City–accompanied by The Fret Rattles of Minnesota–took over the Blue Moose Tap House Saturday night to blow our collective minds. Fresh off his Wednesday performance on Little Village Live, Sam Locke Ward and the Boo Hoos hit the stage earlier in the night to play us a few songs. Check out the following video to see the ever-eccentric Sam setting the tone.

Following Sam Locke Ward and the Boo Hoos were The Fret Rattles, a southern-style rock group that hail from the north. Its members, having been involved in such bands as the Norsemen, Six Six Crush and The Viceroys, boast solid rock resumes. The following clip is short, but oh-so-sweet.

Finally, Iowa City rock prophets Hott topped off the night, playing their final show before taking a three month break. Action Man, E. Boom, Big Daddy and Hott Stix were in excellent form, putting on the most action-packed–no pun intended–performance of the evening. Hott is one of those groups you need to see to fully appreciate, so make sure to check out the following video to see what got the crowd out of their seats and onto the dance floor.
