Hello, fellow music fiends! This site is directed to all you other cheapskates in the Iowa City area that are on a student budget and are looking for something other than spending another night of being pushed around an overpriced, sticky, loud bar that usually turns out to be a bust. I am a student at the University of Iowa and am also an athlete, a swimmer. Swimming has consumed my life since I was about six and so has music. My parents took me to a Pearl Jam concert when I was eight and whether they intentionally made that move or not, I could not get enough of live music after that. Whether it be a big name band, like Pearl Jam, or an underground group that not a soul has heard of, the thing that I am most interested in is seeking out artists with genuine talent and love doing what they do despite what their naysayers have to say. So get up and get out to check out some of these local shows!
