About the bands:
Dead Town Revival
http://www.sinistermuse.com/records/deadtown/
Dead Town Revival's driving melodic music speaks of love lost, hard luck and a complete disdain for authority. Hailing from the working-class streets of the south side of Chicago, Dead Town Revival is a self-described "punk-n-roll" band with a wide ranging list of influences from punk staples such as The Misfits and Social Distortion to rock legends Led Zeppelin and country hero Johnny Cash. Formed from the ashes of several Chicago bands, Dead Town Revival's musical influences have created a unique sound that stays rooted in the undeniable “Chicago punk sound” along the lines of Naked Raygun, Rise Against, and Alkaline Trio.

Bucket House Hooligans
 
 http://www.reverbnation.com/buckethousehooligans
“They wear black like coal, cap, shirt, jeans. Unshaven, stained fingers, smokey voiced young men on a rocket fueled sled to somewhere. They've been at it for a few years, together as a family for one. They have played Chicago, midwest, and Dubuque, their home. "We're perfecting a personna..." one says as if a group mind coalesced to bring it.  "We want people to know, we're kinda nuts..." "
Tim Trenkle, Dubuque Street

Joel Pingitore and The Playground of Sound

http://www.theplaygroundofsound.com/
A guitar oriented blues/rock band based out of Madison, WI. With a blend of original music and cover songs by influences such as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Cray and the Rolling Stones, we have become one of most entertaining bands in the Midwest.

Joel Pingitore is truly a unique talent on guitar; anyone who sees him perform comes away knowing they have witnessed something special. The rhythm section of Frank Queram on bass and Joel Brantmeier on drums is rock solid. Brad Reichert has a powerful and soulful voice; and his infectious personality keeps the crowd entertained throughout the show.

Six Shots 'Til Midnight

http://www.reverbnation.com/sixshotstilmidnight
A hard rock/heavy metal band founded in Dodgeville, WI in late 2009.  AC/DC, Metallica, Guns N' Roses, Godsmack, and everything in between.

2014 Julien Dubuque International Film Festival

Posted By Mike Ironside on April 11, 2014

April 23-27 in Downtown Dubuque

For those readers wondering why Abigail Breslin appears on the cover of this issue of 365ink, we’ll cut straight to the chase. The young actress will be visiting Dubuque later this month in the official capacity as “honorary chair” of this year’s Julien Dubuque International Film Festival (JDIFF). Like Breslin, probably best known for her role in “Little Miss Sunshine” (2006) and one of the youngest Oscar-nominated actresses in history, it seems the Julien Dubuque International Film Festival in just its third year has arrived.

Graham's Style Store Reborn

Ed Graham started working at Boston Clothiers in 1905. Who would have thought it would start a one hundred-plus-year family tradition? From there to Kraft’s Clothiers, where he became the General Manager, to finally opening his own store in 1936 across the street where the American Trust’s Trust Department is today. Ed was cementing the roots of tradition. His sons Joe and John Graham helped him open that first store in a long, skinny building that sat flush with the Cottingham & Butler building along Main Street. Though they eventually wanted to renovate, the building owners at the time purportedly did not allow it because he did not want to raise the building’s value and pay higher property taxes. Graham’s moved across and up the street in 1968 to the Fischer Building where Dubuque Religious Goods stands today.
