2014 EVENTS

May 7
Sioux City Farmers Market
The Farmers' Market is truly one of the most important events during the year. It brings together all the people of the surrounding area to enjoy the bounty of the locally grown produce, delicious baked goods and beautifully hand crafted items. Everything that is for sale is grown or produced by the person selling it. That makes this market unique. There are plenty of opportunities for people to discuss how the product was grown or made. This exchange draws the community together and makes it a better place to live. Nearly 20 area farmers sell home grown produce, but the market is more than just produce! Live music, coffee and sweets draw the Siouxland community to the Marke


Location & Hours:
The Market is located in the Tyson Events Center Suite Parking Lot located north of TriView Avenue at the corner of TriView Avenue and Pearl Street .The Sioux City Farmers Market will be open between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., local time each Wednesday and Saturday from May 7, 2014 through October 29, 2014.

Show starts at 8PM at Anthem


EVERCLEAR (http://www.everclearonline.com/)
(Art Alexakis, lead vocals/guitar; Dave French, guitar/vocals; Freddy Herrera, bass/vocals; Sean Winchester, drums/vocals; Josh Crawley, keyboards/vocals)

With hits like the modern rock radio staples “Santa Monica,” “Everything to Everyone,” “I Will Buy You a New Life,” “Father of Mine,” and “Wonderful,” Everclear has sold more than 9 Million albums globally. Fronted by Art Alexakis, Everclear remains a potent force on the touring circuit. The band released Invisible Stars in 2012, their first album of new material in six years, as well as cover songs and re-recordings of past hits albums, which they named Return to Santa Monica. Everclear plans to continue touring and recording, and of course, Art Alexakis will continue the Summerland tour in years to come.

SOUL ASYLUM (http://www.soulasylum.com/)
Born and bred in Minneapolis, MN Soul Asylum formed in 1981 and since their inception the band has delivered heartfelt and passionate rock n’ roll. They started out on independent label Twin/Tone Records, before scoring major hits on Columbia Records with 1992′s Grave Dancers Union that included the Grammy winning single “Runaway Train”, followed up by 1995′s Let Your Dim Light Shine.

Soul Asylum consists of Dave Pirner (guitar/vocals), Michael Bland (drums), Winston Roye (bass) and Justin Sharbono (guitar). Their last full length album Delayed Reaction, produced by the band and John Fields is melodic, anthemic, well-versed in the art of classic song-craft and was well received by both fans and critics. They are currently in the process of recording an album of all new material to be released in 2014.

EVE 6 (http://www.eve6.com/)
Southern California’s Pop-punk trio, Eve 6, are most well-known for hit singles “Inside Out” and “Think Twice” from their 1998 debut self-titled album, and their prom-MTV anthem, “Here’s To The Night” off of 2000′s Horoscope. Eve 6 exploded onto the mainstream with RCA records before they were of legal drinking age, but called it quits in 2004 shortly after their success.

Eve 6 reunited in 2012, and released Speak in Code through Fearless Records. The band’s lineup remains the same; Max Collins (vocals & bass), Jon Siebels (Guitar), and Tony Fagenson (drums). After their eight year hiatus, Eve 6 returned to the music scene more energized than ever before. Frontman, Max Collins, states that Speak in Code is the strongest collection of songs they’ve had on one record.

SPACEHOG (http://www.spacehog.com/)
Formed in 1994 during the peak of grunge-rock, Spacehog came out with a more unique sound than what was popular in rock music. Their debut album Resident Alien was heavily influenced by artists such as T.Rex, Iggy Pop, Queen, and David Bowie and The Spiders. On top of their “glam-rock” sound, they added some distorted guitars to create their own individual sound. The result: over a million copies sold, the number one single “In the Meantime” and a completely unique identity.

After two more successful albums, and some time apart, Spacehog is together again using their separate musical journeys as inspiration in writing original material. The band once again released an album produced by Bryce Goggin in 2013 entitled As It Is On Earth, which is now available.

Curtis Salgado
Award-winning vocalist/songwriter/harmonica icon Curtis Salgado sings and plays with soulful authority, never giving less than 100 percent. He plays each and every show like it’s the most important gig of his career. He recalls the time when his friend, the great chitlin’ circuit singer Buddy Ace, put on the show of his life, singing his heart out, making three costume changes, all while playing at a casual house party. Salgado was floored. “I was just there playing with my band, hanging out in cut-offs and a t-shirt, and there’s Buddy treating the gig the same as if he was performing at the Apollo,” he says. From that moment on, Curtis vowed that every time he got on stage he would deliver his very best shot.

Royal Southern Brotherhood
Show starts at 8PM at Anthem

Two years have passed since 2012’s self-titled debut album, but the genre-splicing all-star Southerners, Royal Southern Brotherhood, have barely paused for breath. There’s been the roof-raising world tour, taking in twenty-plus countries. There’s been the classic Songs From The Road live album. Cyril Neville, Devon Allman and Mike Zito have all found time for critically-acclaimed solo releases, while Yonrico Scott and Charlie Wooton have lent their talents to the hottest artists around.

But HeartSoulBlood is the big one. The main event. Released 2014, this much-anticipated second studio album is set to rubber-stamp Royal Southern Brotherhood’s reputation as the boldest creative force in the game, and give an adrenalin-shot to the band’s setlist as they scorch the tarmac this summer.

HeartSoulBlood. The album title says it all. In a rock industry increasingly driven by sales charts and demographics, this second album is the sound of five world-class musicians following their guts and playing tug-of-war with their eclectic influences, whether that’s funk, soul, old-blues or hard-rock. This is not an album made to satisfy the suits in boardroom playbacks. It’s an album made to soundtrack people’s lives.

Trampled Under Foot
Show starts at 8PM at Anthem

When Trampled Under Foot arrived in Memphis for the 2008 IBC they were followed by huge, wildly enthusiastic throngs of hometown supporters, eager to cheer for their favorite musical family. And when TUF took First Place in the competition and Nick won the Albert King award for best guitarist, it was a sweet victory for the Schnebelen family and for Kansas City itself. TUF has been on a roll ever since, becoming popular repeat headliners at clubs, festivals and cruises around the world.

While watching their fan base grow world-wide, the trio released multiple CDs and DVDs under their own label, TUF Records, including the highly acclaimed 2011 album Wrong Side of the Blues. The success of that album caught the attention of many throughout the music industry and in 2013 the band partnered with Concord Music Group to release their major label debut, Badlands. Hailed by fans and critics alike, Badlands revealed a musical sophistication well beyond the band’s years and provided further proof that Trampled Under Foot was the real deal.

Aug 22
LoCash Cowboys
Show starts at 8PM at Anthem

Though the high energy, roof-raising spirit of LoCash’s live shows (and over 10 million YouTube views) tends to brand them as a party band, LoCash Cowboys, as the new album proves, are super-focused musicians and songwriters. Here, they showcase their light-hearted, fun-loving edge (“Little Miss Crazy Hot,” the redneck anthems “Hey, Hey, Hey” and “C.O.U.N.T.R.Y”), as well as their emotional side (“I Hope,” “Best Seat in the House,” Chris’s tribute to his late father, and “Keep in Mind,” a parent’s loving farewell to a child venturing into the world).
