Overnight Town Bands

I hope it’s not too early to talk about the entertainment. What bands/acts are on your wish list this year? Last year (on my 10th RAGBRAI), I finally saw Hairball in Centerville. I was blown away. I am hoping that Hairball performs in Clear Lake. That would be phenomenal.

I kind of figured he wasn’t the headliner.

I believe Gary Clark Jr. will be playing at a music festival in Iowa the week after RAGBRAI. Maybe one of the overnight towns could bring him to IA a little early?

Algona has a band similar to Hairball called Snake Oil. Looks pretty good!

So, it doesn’t look like Hairball will be back this year. Well, at least they will be at Nightfall on the River here in DSM in June.
