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 for 80/35. Newly announced acts include Little Ruckus, DJ Eight Ten, Alex Brown, John Solarz, Mark Mallman, K-Holes, Jade Reed, Jesse Aldridge and Brad Goldman. You can check out the full line-up schedule for specific times and stages at
