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)
