Event details

Samuel Locke Ward is a humorous songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist from Iowa City. Eclectic? Yes! Prolific? Way! Lo-fi? Sometimes. RIYL: Roky Erickson, The Frogs, Daniel Johnston, Eugene Chadbourne, et al.

Lawrence's The Ants play American music rigged against massive mainstream acceptance or insular indie rock success. Their status as veterans of bible-belt strip mall culture enables them to feel at home in dilapidated drinking spots, all-ages house parties, or busking on downtown streets. They have traveled the country many times winning the hearts and minds of the Iraqi people. The Ants are not easily labeled and revel in their contradictions.
