Hello!

fireworks Thank you to everyone who came downtown on Tuesday for Red, White, and Boom!  The event was a huge success!   A big thank you also goes out to our presenting sponsors, Genesis Health System and the Riverboat Development Authority, as well as all of our sponsors and volunteers that made the event such a great evening.

 

The River Bandits are playing at Modern Woodmen Park this weekend! The Clinton LumberKings come to town for a three game series running Saturday through Monday.  Also along the river this week is Music on the Levee featuring free music in LeClaire Park.

 

Apache Relay One of the best performances and biggest surprises at River Roots last year was Apache Relay.  Apache Relay will return to the QC on Saturday for a performance at RME and tickets to see this up and coming band are just $10!   Additional shows at RME this week include Eisley, MASQC, The Tangents, River Prairie Minstrels, and The Olypmics.

 

Grafitti6 will bring its unique alt-pop to RME via the combination of singer/songwriter Jamie Scott and writer/producer DJ Tommy D. Scott.  Also don't forget to check out Friday Live at 5, RME Guitar Circle, Acoustic Music Club, and Open Mic Night.

 

David Plowden's Iowa features photos capturing small-town America over a twenty year period.  This exhibit at the Figge Art Museum features a wide range of great images, so don't miss your opportunity to see it.  Also at the Figge this week is a sold out Wine & Art event, Art in the Middle, and Figge member's Art Lovers Book Club.

 

The German Immigrant Experience at the German American Heritage Center demonstrates an immigrants' journey by sea, train, and foot to their final destination here in the Quad Cities.  Visit the GAHC to enjoy  Storyteller Brian "Fox" Ellis as Wilhelm Grimm performing Grimm's Fairy Tales on Saturday afternoon in the first part of a three part series.

 

See you downtown!
