(or hate, as you please) Listenin’ William Elliott Whitmore | The Picador, IC | Saturday, Feb 21, 9pm and Sunday, Feb 22, […]

Iowa City Weekender – February 13-15

Last weekend was a lost weekend for the weekender. My usual Thursday morning weekender write up time was replaced with a trip to the hospital for the birth of my daughter. Sorry, priorities. But, we return this weekend with a Valentine’s edition. Lots of shows are sold out (including Dr. John) so if you still […]

Iowa City Weekender – January 30-February 1

There’s a little something going on this Sunday called the Super Bowl. 43% of all U.S. households watch the event and chances are that, even if you think football is for savages, somebody will invite you for a party. You should go for the guacamole if nothing else. And did you know that the Super […]

Iowa City Weekender – January 23-25

It’s cold outside. That means two things: bad global warming denial jokes, and more time spent inside.

Friday, January 23 The Thinkin’ Lincoln exhibit is gone from […]

The Weekender Nov 27-Nov30

Imagine that I’m telling you all these things while turkeys are getting slaughtered in the background. Or maybe not. This weekend’s entertainment pickings are a bit slimmer than usual. The Picador used to always have some sort of oddball townie one-off show on Thanksgiving, but not this year! The Mill has no entertainment, though you […]

In Which I Highjack The Weekender NOV 27-NOV 30

Hi, Kent Williams here. I kinda sorta talked to Melody about doing a Weekender post, but we didn’t really get beyond the ‘sure why not?’ planning stage, so I’m operating here on the principle that it’s easier to apologize than ask permission. Anyhoo… The Mill Thursday: Monroe Crossing. A Bluegrass outfit that tours nationally and […]

Iowa City Weekender – October 24-26

The weekend schedules are filling up again. In no small part because a number of CR based arts orgs are back from the flood. Likewise, Parkview Terrace, where I’ve owned an unoccupied house for six months is filling up again. My house is almost done and I’m getting ready to move this weekend. IT feels […]

Iowa City Weekender – October 9-11

When it rains it pours. As in the commitments I’ve had in the last two weeks. Other than a trip to see Kathy Griffin (hilarious) I’ve been in a cocoon. Thus, the weekender had to take a two-week hiatus. But, we’re back, and hopefully, we’ll never leave you in the lurch ever again. Let’s get […]
