One of my favorite festivals in the Quad Cities Area is Alternating Currents.  It takes everything the QC's are known for and spreads it all over downtown Davenport for one weekend of Music. Film. Comedy. and Art.

Alternating Currents has grown into one of the largest, most anticipated cultural events in Downtown Davenport. Since its inception, the festival has grown exponentially, both in terms of attendance and overall artistic quality.  Alternating Currents has firmly cemented itself as one of the Quad Cities premier summer festivals that offers something for everyone interested in live music, film, comedy and cutting-edge art installations from all over.

August 19 – 21, 2022 make plans to be in Downtown Davenport for a seriously one of a kind event.

Right now, they are accepting submissions for the Film portion of the event.

Our festival is open to all genres. Our goal is to help the filmmaker promote their work, to meet new contacts and create a new audience. This is about you and we want you to use our stage.

 

In late August, downtown Davenport will be brimming with energy as over a dozen venues host a wide variety of original live music, film screenings, comedians, and visual artists.

Quad Cities Live Music Venues That Aren't Live Music Venues Anymore

Nostalgia Alert!.

We've compiled a quick list (by no means comprehensive) of venues in the Quad Cities that are no longer music venues but to us will ALWAYS hold a special place were we saw some great shows and made some incredible memories.

To many of us the live music scene wasn't just a concert here & there. It was an every weekend affair. And it didn't matter if it was a touring band or your buddy's band. We were going to be there with a beer in hand and scream along with guitars that were way too loud in a room that was improperly treated acoustically and make some bad decisions.
