Trumpet Blossom — Friday, June 20 at 9 p.m. (free)

Daddy’s home! Josh Hoffman, former bass player for Supersonic Piss, organizer for the White Lightning Wherehouse, and Little Village writer (among many other things) is back in town for a minute. To celebrate his return, a collection of Iowa City’s finest will be playing a free show at the Trumpet Blossom Cafe this Friday at 9 p.m. Foul Tip, Error, and Alex Body will be performing, followed up with DJ sets from DJ Sit-Ups (Adam Luksetich) and DJ Daddyhoff (Hoffman himself, if you couldn’t guess).

This marks Foul Tip’s first show in Iowa City since Mission Creek, when they (Adam Luksetich and Ed Bornstein) opened for Dead Rider at The Mill. The group has been playing some of the best angular post-punk Iowa City has ever seen. It’s tricky to catch them since they’ve relocated to Chicago, so make sure to catch their set.

If you made it out to the “Daddyhoff Block Party” last year, in which nearly a dozen acts played at College Green and the patio at Gabe’s, Friday’s show is going to be a fun (and less rain-soaked) reminder of that crazy show — even without the bouncy house.
