The Raccoon Motel, a haven for intriguing live music and performance in the Quad-Cities up through its closing in 2019, is re-opening in a new spot in downtown Davenport.

The Motel’s founder and event promoter, Sean Moeller, released the following message today regarding the venue:

Santa Claus has a ringed tail this year! He’s swooped into the Quad Cities to announce a new Raccoon Motel coming to Davenport sometime in the spring of 2021 and to drop some fresh new Motel merch just in time for the holidays! These hoodies, stocking hats and tees can serve as a cozy hand to hold until the music returns all raccoon-style, as soon as we can possibly make it return. Thank you so much for your vibes and support! We can’t wait to be BACK, bigger and better than ever! Soon. Happy holidays!
ALL of the new wearables are available HERE!! If you live in the Quad Cities, there will be a local pick-up Wednesday, Dec. 23 at The Drawing Room in downtown Davenport.
ALSO, please keep an eye on our co-promoted live streams :
As we all continue to navigate this bummer of a live music year, we here at the Raccoon Motel want to keep providing the best opportunities to experience some form of live concert performance until we can all get back to being in the same rooms together. All of the following Motel and Codfish approved artists have ticketed live streams available in the coming weeks. Please give the listings a look. For every ticket purchased to any of these streams, a portion of the ticket price comes back to our venues and will help us get through this quagmire and back to doing what we all want to be doing in the barn and the future Motel. THANK YOU!!
Upcoming live streams:
Jan. 9 — JOAN BAEZ (the living legend is celebrating her 80th birthday with an intimate live stream)
