    Valindria The Concert Promoter:

    This Friday at 9:30pm at the House of Bricks in Des Moines Iowa will be the first concert I have set up (minus shows setup for my band to play).

    The show will have Inept as the head liner. I love this band. After I booked them they got on a nation wide tour with Trapt and Red! (http://www.traptlive.com/)

    The bands I have booked are:
    Inept (http://www.myspace.com/ineptband)
    East Eighteen (http://www.myspace.com/east18)
    Thoughts of Crossing (www.myspace.com/thoughtsofcrossing)
    Albino Spiders (http://www.myspace.com/albinospiders)

    This event is open to the public but you must be 21 or older to get in. It costs $10.

    Pretty much Wren is the only person I could think of that visits these forums and is is Iowa. Anyway I thought I would let you all know about it. Even if you don't come to my show you should check out Inept. They are amazing live.

    Damn, I would love to go, but I'm still stuck here in Georgia for some reserve training until the 15th of June. Been here since Jan 23rd.

    No worries. Plus to drive from CR to Des Moines on a Friday night for a show this small kinda seems dumb to me. I just wanted people to know about it. Hurt is the smallest band I drove to CR for. They played 1st street live on Valentines day '06? I have gone to Iowa City for Inept though.

    I was visiting my girlfriend in Wisconsin, which we drove from there to Chicago to see my cousin play live. I live in Ontario.

    So you can say I travelled a looooong way to see her live :p

    We should chat sometime. I book a lot of entertainment in Southeast Iowa and am always looking for new bands to bring in, and shows for bands I have routing through.
