February 5, 2009

While the Iowa City music scene is in pretty good shape these days, it’s rare when four great shows land all on ONE weekend.  There will be many tough decisions to be made.  To help you, here’s a run-down of what is going on.

First off, here are the show offerings:

Sat, 2/7 — Diplomats of Solid Sound featuring The Diplomettes w/ The Parlour Suite @ the Mill

Su, 2/8 — Tilly and the Wall w/ Porno Galactica, datagun @ the Picador

Su, 2/8 — Beati Paoli w/ Olivia Rose Muzzy, Live Ghost @ Public Space ONE

Su, 2/8 — Titus Andronicus, The Envy Corps, Birth Rites @ the Mill

Click more for a complete analysis:

Su, 2/8 — Tilly and the Wall w/ Porno Galactica, Datagun @ the Picador

Midwest darlings Tilly and the Wall return to Iowa City.  Featuring tap-dancing percussion, they never fail to provide a fun show.  Rounding out the bill, locals Datagun and Fairfield based Porno Galactica — who released a new mixtape a few weeks ago.  You can download it here.

Su, 2/8 — Titus Andronicus, The Envy Corps, Birth Rites @ the Mill

Titus Andronicus is one the “it” bands right now.  Loved by Pitchfork (review link), so it has gotta be good.  Ames based The Envy Corps and KRUI favorites Birth Rites are playing as well.  In related news, Birth Rites have a new track – “Beringia” – up on their MySpace right now!

Sat, 2/7 — Diplomats of Solid Sound featuring The Diplomettes w/ The Parlour Suite @ the Mill

Do we need to say more?  One of Iowa City’s institutions, The Diplomats of Solid Sound + a special guest – The Parlour Suite.  The Parlour Suite is out of Minnepolis, and if you you are not familar with them – you need to fix that ASAP.

Su, 2/8 — Beati Paoli w/ Olivia Rose Muzzy, Live Ghost @ Public Space ONE

Beati Paoli is out of Des Moines, and they rock (literally and figuratively).  KRUI’s own, Olivia Rose Muzzy, is playing as well.  If you like Joanna Newsom, you should check her out.
