Weekender Eastern

Are you the type of person who wishes your day to day had a lot more "thous" in it? Good news - the Iowa Renaissance Faire is coming up this weekend in the Amana Colonies! If you're more into the modern era, there's plenty for you as well - enjoy the international reggae of Gizzae at CSPS, head out to Dubuque's Fox Den Motel for Unwed Sailor and Waldemar's Midwest indie rock, or hit Trumpet Blossom for a three-parter with mars hojilla, emily the band, and Bella Moss. Also not to miss - the final Iowa City Police Log reading this Saturday at Riverside Theatre, closing out ten years of sometimes-baffling, sometimes-disturbing, always-all-caps ICPL police logs on Twitter. All profits go to Shelter House Iowa City. Top pick for your Memorial Day Weekend: TrevorFest 2023, a celebration and memorial for Trevor Lee Hopkins, former Little Village staffer and Iowa City live music advocate. Two days of awesome bands at Gabes plus a free outside show by the Uniphonics on the Northside on Saturday - if you go to live music in Iowa City, this one's for all of you.
