Middle Western
« on: Apr 24, 2018, 05:01 PM »
My newest obsession is a local supergroup, Middle Western. Co-fronted by William Elliot Whitmore (bass/vocals) and David Zollo from here in Iowa City (keyboards/vocals), this 5-piece evokes The Wallflowers, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, The Band, Little Feat, and countless other influences.

I can only find one live video, from last year.




Here's audio of the track "Help Me" from their debut album, When Your Demons Are Underground and You've Got To Dig Them Up.




The album is great, but the vinyl pressing of 200 sold out online and is only available at shows. CD may be out soon. Tour is also limited to Iowa, except for a date in Chicago.

4/14 Iowa City,IA at Gabe’s - I was at this amazing album release show, historic!
5/18 Dubuque, IA at Dubuque Fest
5/19 Des Moines at Wooly’s - I'll be there, and it falls on my birthday!
6/16 Cedar Rapids at Indian Creek Nature Center - hoping to bring the whole family
6/29 Chicago, IL at Reggie’s
7/14 Lone Tree, IA at Camp Euforia
8/11 Lone Tree, IA at Flat Black Studio’s Grey Area - waiting for details...
Close enough!
