Hello, It's So Nice to See Your Face Again

Gross Domestic ProductTomorrow is the big day in Des Moines for Gross Domestic Product, a multi-genre local music showcase sponsored by the Des Moines Music Coalition that is not to be missed.

What: DMMC presents Gross Domestic Product
When: Friday, April 4, 2008
Doors: 5:30 p.m. Show: 6:00 - 1:30 a.m.
Where: Hotel Fort Des Moines, 1000 Walnut Street

Tickets: IowaTix $10 advance/$15 day of

Happy Hour: 5:30 - 7:30

After-party: Raccoon River Brewing Co.
The two big shows (that I'm most interested in) are Dirty Little Rabbits and Poison Control Center, who finish the evening in the Grand Ballroom. Most interestingly, DLR is a relatively new band with their roots in local and now international favorites Slipknot and is led by Stella Katsoudas, who has also performed (quite well btw) as Sister Soleil and Stella Soleil. More about their story here. I worked for the radio station mentioned in the article at the time we were pushing Sister Soleil and Slipknot so it's especially rewarding to see them in this interesting new band.
