G. Love & Special Sauce

The Redstone Room

Thursday, July 3, 9 p.m.

 

On July 3, Davenport’s Redstone Room hosts a special evening with the alternative hip-hop and blues artists of G. Love & Special Sauce, performing in support of their recent album Sugar. On that recording, you’ll find the song “Too Much Month,” the band’s ode to being desperately short on funds. And among its lyrics, you’ll find the following: “I got too much month for the end of my money / And not enough money for the end of the month.”

This is ordinarily when I’d make some crack, such as “And boy, do we Reader employees know what that’s like!” But I’m angling for a raise, so the timing doesn’t seem right.

The Sena Ehrhardt Band *

Rascals Live

Friday, June 13, 7:30 p.m.

 

This year, Father’s Day lands on Sunday, June 15. And two days prior, when Minnesota-based singer/songwriter Sena Ehrhardt performs her concert at Rascals Live, she’ll actually share the stage with her own dad Ed Ehrhardt, who’s the guitarist for his daughter’s blues ensemble the Sena Ehrhardt Band. In other words, this Father’s Day, Sena will be able to give her pop the one gift all parents most want from their children: a paycheck.

Mississippi Valley Blues Festival

LeClaire Park

Thursday, July 3, through Saturday, July 5

 

It makes perfect sense that the very first musicians to play 2014’s Mississippi Valley Blues Festival in LeClaire Park – which begins at 5 p.m. on July 3 – are the members of the Johnny Kilowatt Band, because this year’s lineup of artists is downright electric! (Okay, granted, that’s a terrible joke, but if you’ve been reading me for a while now, you know they can get way worse.)

High on Fire

Rock Island Brewing Company

Thursday, May 29, 8 p.m.

 

On May 29, the Rock Island Brewing Company hosts an evening with musicians who, according to the UK’s The Guardian, “have been blowing amps and minds for more than a decade.” AllMusic.com declared that their music “rolls like sinister thunder across the landscape.” And SputnikMusic.com called their most recent album “a ferocious and captivating listen that twists and turns through the deepest, darkest depths while pushing forward into new sonic territory.”

Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for ... the Osmonds!

Whoops. I mean High on Fire. I keep getting those groups confused.

Laura Jane Grace

Rock Island Brewing Company

Friday, May 16, 8 p.m.

 

On May 16, the Rock Island Brewing Company presents a special concert with Laura Jane Grace, the lead vocalist of the punk-rock ensemble Against Me! who famously came out as a transgender woman in 2012. But anyone who worried that the band might have consequently softened its touch on the songs for January’s Transgender Dysphoria Blues needn’t fear. “Two Coffins”? “F---mylife666”? “Osama bin Laden as the Crucified Christ”? Sounds pretty damned punk to me.
