Destination Des Moines: December

Posted in: Iowa City Owl
You're thrashing your arms, alternating kicks with your legs,  while attempting to maintain your rhythm. The trumpet has your hips moving and you’re getting tossed around like one of the lotto balls inside a drum before a Saturday night Powerball drawing. Anywhere else  people might mistaken you for someone diagnosed with epilepsy. So what might be the catalyst for this bizarre behavior? It's not so much a question of what, but more a question of who. The who is Reel Big Fish, a ska band from southern California who’s fans come together to let loose while engaging in the unique dance form of Skanking. To get your skank-on come down to Peoples Court this Friday where RBF will be sure to show you why everything does not suck. 

Also at Peoples this month the Envy Corps and Euforquestra will be slapping strings on separate nights. The Envy Corps has been receiving a lot of local attention recently with the release of their newest album "It Culls You". While Iowa City natives Euforquestra will be hosting Home For the Holidays with proceeds going to the Food Bank of Iowa. 

If you’re skint, and need entertainment that is easy on the wallet then I recommend you head to 4th street’s Vaudeville Mews for the Christmas Comedy Spectacular. Where eight of Des Moines funniest comics will perform for FREE! Also the defending champion Iowa Energy will be hosting a 2-1 lower level ticket night.  This is a great opportunity to see the champs up close and personal as they continue their reign of dominance in the NBA developmental league.
