If you want to check out our recap of January and February (the “normal” months), click here; if you want to read about... Read More

QuadCities.com Top Stories Of 2020: Part Two. MARCH. The Apocalypse Begins...

It’s time for our look back at the year that was in arts and entertainment, 2020. Every day between now and New Year’s Eve, Dec. 31, we’ll be posting a story painting the big picture on the year, a couple months each day.

This weekend, YouTube and the National Independent Venue Association are doing an awesome thing for local music venues nationwide, and I’m sure many of you have heard about the star-studded Save Our Stages Fest.
