A night without bass!

3 acts -- Family Van, Wire Hangers, Liberty Leg.

Family Van is a new project from Dave H, who has been in several notorious noise bands in Iowa City. I think they're brilliant -- dave plays noise boxes and never-tuned guitar, liz plays never-learned-to-play, guitar, and lisa on clarinet and laura on drums can actually play. This is only approximately music, and not safe for work over speakers. "Shit from my ass? I declare art."

Wire Hangers are from Minneapolis -- no link or contact info. The recording is good but doesn't capture the entirety of their sound. They play 2 acoustic guitars through gigantic quad 12" speaker cabinets, and so there's a 'third instrument' sounding through their set -- echoey overtones and racketing countermelodies.

Liberty Leg are a longtime Iowa City band that moved to New Orleans, and then back to Iowa City after the recent destruction of the city. Guitar, Drums and Vocals. Ethan the singer has a really distinctive, deep voice, and their live performances are intense experiences.
