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.

Tony Walker & Johnny Sendt

61st Annual Dubuque County Fair

Posted on July 21, 2014

Are you ready for that yearly event that screams,  “SUMMER!”? If you’re hungry for cotton candy, funnel cakes and lemonade, pumped for midway rides, livestock, and games, with live music, beer and a demolition derby all thrown into one weeklong celebration of Dubuque County in all of it’s glory, you’re ready for the 61st Annual Dubuque Country Fair!

Rock & Roll Rewind

Posted on July 17, 2014

It’s no secret that Dubuque and the surrounding area has a rich and vibrant live music scene. Pick up any issue of 365ink and look at the live music listings for any given weekend. Not only will there be multiple choices on Friday and Saturday nights (not to mention week nights) but even on Sundays, a music lover might have a dozen or more opportunities to find live music around the Tri-States. (We actually counted 20 live music events on a recent summer Sunday!)  

While part of this phenomenon is no doubt a result of the area’s general vibrancy and economic health, the richness of the current Dubuque music scene can be traced back decades to the 1960s, ‘70s, and ‘80s, when high school garage bands rocked teen dances and gymnasiums and rock, blues, and country bands entertained in all sorts of bars, taverns, and clubs. Whatever happened to those bands?

Dubuque Gran Fondo

Posted on July 07, 2014

Greg LeMond will be the guest of honor at the inaugural Dubuque Gran Fondo, a combination ride and race that begins and ends at the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium. The ride, which is described by organizers as the equivalent of a "cycling marathon"—some riders will race to win, others will ride to enjoy an unforgettable day on a challenging course that includes many signature Dubuque bluff hills and sections of gravel roads in Dubuque County. 


 

Summer Theatre

Posted on July 02, 2014

One only has to look at the cover of this issue of 365ink (or flip through the rest of the issue for that matter) to realize that Dubuque has a robust arts and cultural landscape. Check out the offerings for more great summer theatre offerings! But sometimes there is so much going on that we don’t always keep up with all the possibilities.
