Middle Western & Brian Johannesen
February 8, 2020, 8:00 PM - 11:30 PM
Middle Western (Dave Zollo, William Elliott Whitmore, Stephen "The Kid" Howard, Stevie Doyle, Brian Cooper) mixes "New Orleans piano stomps, Crazy Horse-era guitar epics and proto-garage boogie" to create something entirely new, achingly familiar, altogether enjoyable. Their debut album, When Your Demons are Underground and You've Got to Dig Them Up, was recorded at Flat Black Studios in Lone Tree and released in March of 2018.
Iowa City singer/songwriter Brian Johannesen's new album, Holster Your Silver, is out this month on the Little Village label. Johannesen's "gritty, hopeful Americana" is a perfect foil for Middle Western's blues/country/folk/Iowa roots music.
Tickets are available at Weird Harold's in downtown Burlington and online at Tikly.co.
