Megadeth Breathes Fire And Life Into I Wireless Center

The monsters of the music industry have been entertaining the Quad-Cities in that building called the IWireless Center in Moline, since long before I moved here 22 years ago. Some of these bands are popular for a time and some of them have an epic feel. Some of these nights, one knows they are in the presence of greatness. Last Friday night was one of those moments for me and a stadium packed completely full of metal heads. It was an AWESOME crowd, my friends. Rock and Metal band t-shirts, beautiful women with black lipstick on, mohawks and the occasional nerd (me, I wore pink.) made up an amazing... Read More

Rock & Roll For A Great Cause In Muscatine Saturday

    By Tony Tone Locosole When the crisis phone line rings in the middle of the night at the Muscatine Center for Social Action (MCSA) Domestic Violence Shelter, it is never a good sign. What is good is that someone on the other end of that call is available day or night to help. For the last 18 1/2 years, the shelter has done just that for local women and children in need. MCSA Domestic Violence Shelter Coordinator Judy Yates stresses the significance of having a local option for women in need. “It is important for the Muscatine community to have this resource available to women and... Read More
