The Des Moines Music Coalition has announced the show dates for its ninth annual Little BIG Fest, and this year marks the first time the event has been expanded into two days. This year’s festival will again be a multi-venue event, with shows taking place at the Temple for Performing Arts on Friday, Nov. 21, and Wooly’s and House of Bricks in the East Village on Saturday, Nov. 22. There will also be smaller, “pop up” shows taking place at local venues throughout the downtown corridor and East Village both days. Band submission ended this past weekend, and the lineup announcements should begin soon. In the meantime, check out www.desmoinesmc.com for more information.
This week’s Pick o’ the week is at the Des Moines Social Club on Friday, Oct. 17, for The Instants’ CD release party. Show starts at 9 p.m and, as always, you should bring a couple extra bucks with you and pick up a copy of the album. Mahalo. CV
