Abe Goldstein, host of Jazz at Caspe Terrace, has announced that this month’s performance will be cancelled. Shelia Jordan and Cameron Brown were scheduled to perform at the Waukee venue’s Bucksbaum Auditorium on Tuesday, Oct. 18. Unfortunately Jordan and Brown’s tour has been plagued with problems, which has resulted in cancellation of the date. Caspe Terrace’s next Jazz performance is slated for Dec. 13, so drop Abe a line at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to order tickets.
House of Bricks hosts two monthly events this week. First on Thursday, Sept. 27 is Singer/Songwriter Night. This month’s performers are B. John Burns, Scott Cochran and Strum Thurmond. That event kicks off at 8 p.m. and is free to attend.
Then on Sunday, Sept. 30, HoB hosts its Musician’s Swap Meet. Bring your music equipment to sell or trade or just bring some money and buy stuff. The meet runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and is also free to enter.
On Thursday, Sept. 27, Vaudeville Mews plays host to Japanese psych rockers The Zoobombs. The all-ages show kicks off at 5 p.m. and is $7 at the door. Wolves in the Attic, Dhobi Flats, The Morning Electric and SSIC also perform.
Then on Friday, Sept. 28, Martin Sexton plays at People’s. That show starts at 8 p.m. and is reserved cabaret seating. Tickets range from $20 to $30 and are available through midwestix.com.
Also on Sep 28, Wooly’s is the site of Trouble Lights’ CD release party. In honor of the CD title — The Endless Prom — the Maximum Ames crew is throwing themselves an actual prom. Wear your prom-appropriate gear and don’t forget a corsage for your date. There will be special guests, door prizes, a photo booth and, at the end of the night, a couple will go home with the title of Prom King and Queen. Five dollars gets you in.
Sound Notes Pick o’ the Week: Randy Burk and The Prisoners bring “Cash 10” — their tribute to Johnny Cash — to the Gas Lamp on Saturday, Sept. 29. Tickets are $10 at the door, and the show starts at 9 p.m.

While it’s not a musical show, Sound Notes would be remiss to not mention that Henry Rollins will be at Wooly’s on Monday, Oct. 1. With his new talking tour, “Capitalism,” Rollins is hitting up all 50 state capitals in the run up to Election Day on Nov. 5. His Des Moines Appearance starts at 8 p.m., and tickets can still be had through www.ticketfly.com for $25.
