The sun is out and Valentine's Day Weekend is getting off to a great start. There are a couple of things going on in Iowa City tonight if you're into live music, or perhaps like me you're an Agatha Christie fan, in which case The Englert is the place for you. This weekend the Iowa City Community Theatre is presenting And Then There Were None - Classic Agatha Christie, definitely a must see if you're a Whodunnit fan like me. Saturday's performance starts at 7.30pm and there's a matinee on Sunday at 2.00pm.
Getting back to the live music, we have a couple of options. The first is the Riverside Casino & Golf Resort at Riverside where the Bacon Brothers will be performing tonight. (February 12). Kevin Bacon and his brother Michael have been making music 15 years now. Long enough to be taken seriously and not held back by the fact that Kevin is also a very successful actor. Doors open at 7.00pm and the show starts at 8.00pm. The link is to the website and you can purchase tickets there. Phone number if you want to call ahead is 319-648-1234
On Sunday afternoon they have another pretty big name at the Riverside Casino with Righteous Brother, Bill Medley. He's half of the duo who sang one of the best love songs of all time, Unchained Melody. (And if you're drawing a blank on the title, it was used in the Patrick Swayze movie Ghost). That show is on Sunday, February 13. Doors open at 3.00pm and the show starts at 4.00pm.
Take it from me, it's an impressive place. I was there for the first time a couple of weeks ago. It has a great atmosphere and is SO much more than a Casino. If you haven't visited yet, this weekend may be just the time to check it out!
Downtown Iowa City has its own live music venues and I have two hot picks for you. The Yacht Club on Linn St and The Mill on Burlington. Sublime Tribute - Secondhand Smoke are playing at the Yacht Club and folk blues legend Dave Moore is at the Mill tonight.
To round things up. If you really want to party Wildwood Smokehouse & Saloon boasts the best party in Iowa tonight with Lost Highway hitting the stage at 9.00pm. Check out the link to their Facebook page for more info.
These are just a couple of things that caught my eye. If you have any to add feel free to put them in the comments. I'm sure other readers will appreciate it.
