Well, hello there. A little update from your What a Load of Craft posse. The winter brings the crafters of the world a good chance to hibernate and get to work. Currently I am wrapping up my winter projects and looking forward to making spring wear and spring wares. Last night I worked on a […]
Thanks to all three bands for helping us kick off our series from PS1. Unforgettable sets from all three acts in the performance space combined with the PS1 silent auction–which turned out to be one of the coolest group shows to hit IC in recent memory–made this an event we were truly proud to be a part of.

JTrey are an Iowa Hip Hop Group that has been making CDs for some time, but the CD “Blue|Soul” is on a whole new level. They’ve progressed from an electronic beats + rhymes setup to a full band, and incorporated the amazing Jasmine as a third featured vocalist. I’ll save most of my praise for a full review in the next LV, but suffice it to say tonights CD release party is an event worth being a little sketchy tomorrow morning at work for. […]
Another lovely Tuesday Night Social Club at the Mill has come and gone. This week offered a lineup of great local singer-songwriters that I am sure you will have many opportunities to catch in the future. Maybe you should just start coming to Tuesday Night Social Club every week so you don’t miss anything good…ever. […]

Topping off the Yacht Club’s day-long anniversary festivities was the ever-faithful Dead Larry. You know, your funky friends. The kind of friends that can plant a hook so deep in your musically-inclined subconscious, you’ll catch yourself singing the choruses for weeks. […]
The Yacht Club celebrated its eight year anniversary Saturday, and helping the venue celebrate were the gentlemen known as Lick it Ticket.
It just rolls right off the tongue, doesn’t it? Regardless, this experimental group from Cedar Falls took the stage just before Dead Larry capped off the day-long celebration. Check out video of their performance below, and stay tuned for the Dead Larry goods. […]
This is a bit of a slow weekend in Iowa City. There are a lot of sports events this weekend, but that’s not the focus of this column. They don’t pay me in beer and chewing gum to talk about sports. They pay me in real (paper) money to talk about culture and the arts around this fair city of ours. Let’s do that! […]
Ain’t no party like a Detroit party at Gabe’s — Sophistifunk w/Kris Wadsworth.
DJ Jethro & DJ Uplift (Jeff Ryon & Brandon Richerson when the cops pull them over) are starting a new monthly dance event at Gabe’s they call Sophistifunk. Veteran DJs who’ve rocked the stage at Gabe’s back in the day many, many times, they’re bringing Kris Wadworth from Detroit to headline. […]
