Looking for something to do this weekend? Or maybe you're up for a short road trip to see some cutting edge artists in one of the coolest venues you'll ever see. Former Daytrotter man about town, Sean Moeller is celebrating his birthday by bringing you the gifts with GARP at Codfish Hollow Barnstormers in Maquoketa. Check out the video about the event. One of my favorite artists who will be at GARP is Lolo. She talked to NPR recently about her music and being herself while no longer being who others want her to be. Along with a long list of artists you won't see anywhere else in the area, LOLO will perform at GARP this weekend. Grab your tickets here. https://youtu.be/6T4U_Zeg2TI
