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

Civil Soldier

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.

Gary Olsen: There Are Places I Remember

Posted By Bryce Parks on September 30, 2014

You’ll be hard pressed to find anyone in Dubuque who has more successfully balanced a creative existence between fine art and graphic design than Gary Olsen. In many ways, the lines are blurred, with many of his best artistic works coming growing out of commissions or charitable purposes and many of his finest commercial design pieces being worthy of framing themselves. It’s pretty difficult to engage actively in the Dubuque community and not encounter a Gary Olsen original design, whether it be a painting hanging in a business or a friends home, or a logo on the side of a vehicle or on a t-shirt. He’s painted, drawn, filmed and crafted his life into the canvas of Dubuque, which is only appropriate as the works he’s created for his latest show are a literal reflection of this community on which he’s made such an impact.
