Shows I May Check Out – September & October

The main focus of this blog is to cover mid-week live music events in the Iowa City area — or that’s supposed to be the focus, anyway.  Some things have kept me from going to shows lately, but I thought making a list of notable mid-week shows over the next couple months may inspire me to get out more (and maybe others will find a few of the picks appealing enough to check out for themselves).  So here it goes:

(All shows are 19+ unless otherwise noted)

BATTLE OF THE BANDS (all Thursdays in September) – Yacht Club, 8 PM ($5).  Features lots of Iowa City-based bands.  Finals is on Saturday, Oct. 11.

Tues. 9/16: BLACK LIPS w/ The King Khan & BBQ Show, Younger – Blue Moose, 9 PM ($15).

Wed. 9/17: SHONEN KNIFE w/ Habibi – The Mill, 9 PM ($12 adv / $14 day of show)

Tues. 9/23: TWIN PEAKS w/ Ne-Hi – Blue Moose, 7 PM ($10/$12 *ALL AGES*)

Tues. 9/23: HEAVY GLOW w/ The Sapwoods, Milk Duct Tape – Gabe’s, 9 PM (Free)
