    Local bands & Live Venues

    Does anyone follow local bands in the Des Moines/Ames area? If so, who are they and where are the best local bars/venues?

    I don't live in the area, but I did see that the Josh Davis Band is on the CD sampler that comes with my favorite music mag, Paste. I thought it was just an OK track, but it's good to see good music come out of Iowa.

    Matt Woods is good if your into Blues! He use to play solo on Thursday at The Continental, and pretty often at Blues on Grand!

    Ask Cotlar, that seems to be one of his strongsuits, local music. Too bad he's supposed to have a sports show.
