Studio One Underground

Gloom Balloon albums are known for their extensive production, and Gloom Balloon live shows are known for their unpredictability and exuberance. For our October trip to the Des Moines Social Club, Gloom Balloon gave us something special for Studio One Underground.

It's just about time for our monthly trip to the Des Moines Social Club, as we welcome Middle Western to Studio One Underground on June 1st!

Middle Western is the Iowa-based "supergroup" featuring David Zollo and William Elliott Whitmore, along with Stephen "The Kid" Howard, Brian Cooper and Stevie Doyle. This is Middle Western's second appearance on Studio One Underground: the band joined us last June as we highlighted artists participating in the Iowa Music Project.

This year's Studio One Underground series got off to a great start in January with the Surf Zombies, and we've got lots more great stuff happening in the coming months! In February, we're heading back to the Des Moines Social Club for another live broadcast, and we'll be joined by Max Wellman!

IPR's Studio One Underground series for 2017 has begun! On Thursday the 5th, we returned to the Des Moines Social Club for our monthly live broadcast, with our guests the Surf Zombies performing two terrific sets. While we were at it, we talked about the band's recent honors bestowed upon them by the Iowa Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame and an Iowa brewery. And as if all that weren't enough, the Surf Zombies were kind enough to help jump-start the IPR van at the end of an especially cold January night!
