The Yacht Club is set to host one of Iowa City’s very own throwback rock and roll groups, Velcro Moxie, this Friday at 9 p.m. Characterized as indie rock with a strong influence from guitar-driven bands such as Led Zeppelin, Nirvana and the Pixies, Velcro Moxie manage to cover a wide range of sub-genres within the standard rock catalog.
With three vocalists, Velcro Moxie have made it look easy to keep each song fresh, both with harmonies and shared lead vocal duties. This can be especially useful when covering the songs from their classic rock influences, with the group having the ability to put a twist on recognizable songs.
The group has been gaining a steady reputation in and around Iowa City for the better part of the last three years, and have become known as one of the premiere local acts performing no-nonsense rock and roll. The show marks the band wrapping up a session at Flat Black Studios, as well as the birthday of their bassist, so be ready to celebrate!
Soul Phlegm, Nalani Proctor, and Flannel Season will be filling out the rest of the bill.
