Rock Island Brewing Company

March through May

 

This spring, the Rock Island Brewing Company is going to be a little bit country, a little bit rock ’n’ roll ... and yet, despite my continued pleas to management, Donny & Marie are still not on the docket. (Those of you under 40 may want to ask an elder to explain that joke.)

Amadeus Trio

Augustana College

Saturday, March 15, 7:30 p.m.

 

On March 15, the latest guests in Quad City Arts’ Visiting Artists series will present their public concert at Augustana College’s Wallenberg Hall, and all I can say to that is: Rock me, Amadeus! Or rather: Chamber-music me, Amadeus! (With apologies to Falco for rescinding the plug.)

Miles Nielsen & the Rusted Hearts and Chicago Farmer

The Redstone Room

Friday, February 21, 8:30 p.m.

 

Americana musician Miles Nielsen performs at Davenport’s Redstone Room on February 21 alongside his ensemble the Rusted Hearts, and in an interview in the Decatur Herald & Review, Nielsen said of his team, “I want the band to sound like guys who have experienced a winter.” Let’s hope, for his local set, that Nielsen also wants his audience to have experienced a winter, because otherwise, he’s totally gonna be at the wrong venue.

Griffin House

The Redstone Room

Thursday, February 6, 8 p.m.

 

Folk, pop, and acoustic rocker Griffin House plays Davenport’s Redstone Room on February 6, and from all accounts, music fans and critics alike are just crazy about the man’s Balls.

Which, of course, is the title of the musicians’s latest CD.

Which, of course, meant there was no way I was going to open with anything other than a Balls-related joke. (I mean, come on: How long have we known each other?)

Katja Loher: Videoplanet – OrchestraExhibit

Katja Loher: Videoplanet – Orchestra

Figge Art Museum

Saturday, January 25, through Sunday, May 4

 

The newest exhibition at the Figge Art Museum is titled Katja Loher: Videoplanet – Orchestra, and according to the exhibit’s description at the venue’s Web site, one of its more fascinating elements allows museum visitors the chance to see “androgynous, costumed dancers form letters that compose words and sentences to pose simple, thought-provoking questions.” In honor of Loher’s artistic endeavor, I considered employing exactly the same style for this What’s Happenin’ article, but my bosses were convinced that I’d never find the thousands of androgynous, costumed dancers necessary to pull it off. I told them they obviously didn’t know my friends, but whatever ... .
