Downtown Saturday Night presented by the Downtown Association of Iowa City returns to the Weatherdance Stage, right outside the Iowa City Sheraton Hotel, this Saturday night at 6:30 with performances from William Elliot Whitmore and The New Bodies.
Hailing from a horse farm along the banks of the mighty Mississippi River, William Elliott Whitmore has developed an intense love and spiritual understanding of the land, which he flawlessly conveys through all of his records. With live performances that will leave one completely stunned in silence, and albums full of songs from the heart and the heartland. Whitmore is one of the most interesting contributions to today’s diverse collection of musical ingenuity.
Natives of Des Moines, The New Bodies play a brand of Rock that blends punk sensibilities and a strong alternative influence with catchy hooks. These guys are the real deal!
