DAVENPORT, IOWA (October 15, 2021) One is a bit of a last-minute addition to the calendar and one is nearly six months out, but a sure-fire time-stopper. Philadelphia's great rock and roll band The Districts, who have played sold out show at the Village Theatre and co-headlined a Rust Belt show with Twin Peaks, are back in the Quad Cities this coming Tuesday, with Rookie.

In very big news, The Raccoon Motel will be hosting Joy Oladokun and Bre Kennedy, April 23, 2022, and we couldn't be more excited about this special booking. This will be the smallest place she plays on the entire tour and is poised to be a breakout superstar in 2022. Just give a listen to her pained and soulful songs and you will understand why. For fans of Adele, Tracy Chapman, Phoebe Bridgers and Frank Ocean. DO NOT MISS. Tickets are on sale today and going fast.

****THROUGH this Sunday night at midnight, use the promo code AUTUMN when checking out and take 15% off any ticket you purchase for any show. Thank you so much for your support of the Raccoon Motel. Let's have a great fall and winter.****
