Friday concert features Feralings, Awful Purdies


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

To change things up in the seven-week long Iowa City’s Summer of the Arts Friday Night Concert Series, two distinctive bands, the Feralings and Awful Purdies, will both perform. The concert series usually features one group, but on Friday, the two bands will share the venue.

Nicole Upchurch, who plays clawhammer banjo and sings for the Feralings, said she looks forward to coming back for the concert series.

“We genuinely enjoy playing venues that welcome our community both young and old,” she said. “But most of all, it’s an opportunity to play a gig at a decent hour with a good sound person who really listens.”

Awful Purdies has also played previously in the series, and Katie Roche, who plays accordion for the group, agrees that coming back for Summer of the Arts is a worthwhile experience.

“I always get a little misty-eyed on that stage looking out and seeing so many people we know and love,” she said. “We really cater our set list to fit the community feeling of the event.”
