Band news! So, a week after parting ways with
their lead guitarist, Hath No Fury has gone
on hiatus. After playing their last show obligation
as a four-piece, singer Kristin Sauvago and
bassist Jeff Stone decided to pursue other projects.
On its Facebook page, Jen Allen said that the
band isn’t dead and has already put out a call
looking to audition “talented, enthusiastic,
patient and bad ass” guitarists and bassists.
In the meantime, Allen said she has a solo project
she’s working on as well as a couple of promotional
gigs. Speaking of…
Jayde Henry was selected as this year’s “Ms.
Wheelchair Iowa” and is gearing up for the Ms.
Wheelchair America 2013 Pageant in Rhode Island
this August. To help her cover the expenses
for the trip, Jen Allen has put together a fundraising
concert and raffle at House of Bricks. The event
is Wednesday, June 20, and starts at 5:30 p.m.
Your $5 cover will go toward getting Henry to
her pageant, and raffle-goers will be treated
to performances by Little Ruckus, pride of Winterset
Blue Haven and Brother Trucker, as well as Allen
performing with a couple special guests.
The final lineups and set times have been announced
