The QCA’s Only Free Press Can Really Use Your Support

We're the River Cities' Reader, and we've kept the Quad Cities' only independently owned newspaper alive and free since 1993. Now we find our ability to continue providing all the features you love in serious jeopardy without the financial support of our readers.


Help Keep Quad Cities Theatre Coverage Alive

The River Cities' Reader has long prided itself on our coverage of the area theatre scene. As a matter of fact, before theaters everywhere experienced closures in mid-March, we were the only Quad Cities newspaper publishing any local stage reviews at all.


Support Local Music Reviews and Event Coverage

For decades, the Reader has published Quad Cities live music event listings, plus hundreds of album reviews and preview articles on local and touring musicians.

Please help the Reader keep going with your one-time, monthly, or annual support. With your financial support, the Reader can continue providing uncensored, non-scripted, and independent journalism alongside the Quad Cities' area's most comprehensive cultural coverage.
