If one thing has been made clear in this issue, it is that March is huge for indie music and culture in Iowa City. As we all patiently await the Mission Creek Festival at the end of the month, it might be wise to look to one of our neighbors for a tasty appetizer to tide us over. Grinnell College has historically done an exceptional job of bringing super cool and relevant acts to the middle of Iowa and this month is no different.

Lead singer and guitarist Jana Hunter got her start putting out freak-folk solo records alongside Devendra Banhart on his label, Gnomonsong. Her group is currently on the road in anticipation of their second effort, Nootropics, produced by Drew Brown, who has done work with Radiohead, Beck, Blonde Redhead and Sandro Perri.

Let March be a celebration of how totally awesome and hip the state of Iowa can be! Almost all Grinnell concerts are free and open to the public, so be sure to check their website for the rest of their spring lineup:
