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

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

While Dubuque no longer has a big downtown department store decorated inside and out for the holidays with those traditional window displays celebrating the coming of Christmas with a sparkly winter wonderland of toys and other gifts, it does have the Roshek Building, which once served that purpose. For those old enough to remember, Roshek’s Department Store, decked out with Christmas trees and other holiday decorations still exists as fond memories of a more innocent time.

Jubeck New World Brewing

Posted By Mike Ironside on November 06, 2014

“Members got us open. People coming in just buying beer is what’s going to keep us open,” says Jay Jubeck, co-owner and namesake of Dubuque’s first “nano” brewery, Jubeck New World Brewing. It’s an important point. Because Jubeck and his partner Dan Caraway used a fundraising plan based on the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model to raise funds to start their CSB (Community Supported Brewery), some people might mistakenly think they are not welcome to stop in and try the beer at the brewery’s tasting room. They couldn’t be further from the truth.
