DAVENPORT, IOWA (March 2, 2022) — It's a whole new month, but some things never change here at The Raccoon Motel. It's another stacked month of concerts, bingo and other goings on. We finished with a serious bang last night as Wilderado stormed into town and played a sold out show to start their month-long US tour!! It was one of the more special nights we've had in the new space and there are more of those to come, even just in the next week as we welcome The Arcadian Wild, Ryley Walker and the Bitchin' Bajas, The Lost Dog Street Band, and more to town.

We're excited to have Liza Anne bringing Izzy Heltai (one of the most buzzed-about new artists in America) with her for a March 18 show that will be just one of fourteen total dates she's playing on their tour supporting her exceptional record Bad Vacation! It's an honor to have both of them, and it's one of the coolest bills of the month. Another not-to-miss show is the March 7 Dale Hollow/Bnny show. Hollow recently supported Orville Peck on his West Coast tour and he's one to watch.

David Ramirez will be returning to the Motel June 8 — with tickets on sale Wednesday, March 2, at 10AM — and while you're at it, pick up tickets to a two-night stand with local heroes The Cerny Brothers, returning to town from Nashville for two nights only, May 27-28!

Until 5PM today, March 2, use the promo code TICKETTUESDAY and get 15% off any tickets currently on sale!

We are introducing Read Club, just another offering we'd like to throw out to the community to join in this cozy home we're creating here at the Motel. It's an open invitation, every Wednesday morning, 8-10AM. Bring your own book, bring your own coffee, and read with us. Feel free to bring any pre-loved books for a Read Club book swap as well. We are planning on working in special guests to some of these gatherings. It's a great way to start your Wednesdays! See you soon!
