Iowa City’s 2016 Summer of the Arts winds to a close this Labor Day weekend with their final installment of the free Friday Night Concert Series (located on the Weatherdance Fountain Stage in the Ped Mall). On Friday, Sept. 2, Des Moines-based artist Christopher Ford, better known as Christopher the Conquered, sends the series out on a high note, with his engaging, endearing one-of-a-kind musical milieu.

Christopher the Conquered’s first full-length album, I’m Giving Up on Rock & Roll, dropped earlier this year, showcasing both his joy and his introspection, his pop hooks and his lyrical acuity. Head down to the Ped Mall early to score prime seating for this 6:30 p.m. show. Christopher the Conquered is the perfect choice to usher Iowa City from the fun and fervor of summer into the thoughtful calm of fall.
