New Duncan Imperials

Rock Island Brewing Company

Saturday, July 26, 8 p.m.

 

Hard as it is to believe, RIBCO is celebrating its 35th anniversary this summer. In honor of the milestone, the beloved District of Rock Island venue is hosting an outdoor concert with the equally beloved party rockers of New Duncan Imperials. The traditional 35th-anniversary gift is coral. So make sure you bring some when you arrive for the band’s July 26 engagement, because you can’t spell “New Duncan Imperials at RIBCO” without “coral.”

Ha! And people say I strain in these introductions!

The Oh Hellos

The Redstone Room

Thursday, July 10, 7:30 p.m.

 

Davenport’s Redstone Room hosts a July 10 concert with the folk rockers of The Oh Hellos, and the duo’s musicians, Tyler and Maggie Heath, are not only gifted singers/songwriters; they’re brother and sister. You may know the pair from its 2012 album Through the Deep, Dark Valley, which finds the Heaths crooning together to songs such as “I Was Wrong,” and “I Have Made Mistakes,” and ... .

Wait a second. Are we sure they’re brother and sister? ’Cause I’ve got one of each and they’re never that nice to each other.

Garrett Music

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.

Sena EhrhardtMusic

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.)
