RADDERDAZE: Maiden Mars, Busey, and The Ultrasounds at Ed’s (no name) Bar
RADDERDAZE is every first Saturday of the month at Ed’s (no name) Bar bringing you rad bands for less clams.
Iowa City, IA
Maiden Mars is an all-female witch (redudant, I guess) band that is self-proclaimed, “Wiccan as Fuck”. And don’t you start mumbling “gimmick” to yourself because they’ll put a spell on you and not give two cares about it. But enough about their religious leanings—these ladies wail. They’ve got gritty guitars, poppy three-part harmonies, and songs that kick you in the teeth while they’re getting stuck in your head. Three is a magic number when the maidens come to your town…so, sick nasty!
Here are 4 dudes fueled by classic ’90s cinema and total debauchery. None of them are strangers to the Twin Cities music scene. Dan once jammed with Puddle of Mudd—just ask him if you don’t believe me. They arose from the ashes of the late San Dimas when mutual friend and fellow rock ‘n’ roller Jonny Matthew joined them to form Busey. Watch yourself—they’re big and loud and they’re not messing around.
(sludgy garage pop)
The Ultrasounds used to be 3 chicks and 1 dude playing sludgy garage pop and drinking Steel Reserve. And while they still are—now they drink more gin and craft beers than before, and one of them became an art teacher. Don’t think they’ve lost sight of what’s actually important though. They’re still playing noisy rock ‘n’ roll music and as many shows in as many cities as possible.
