Painted Saints is a band centered around the songs of Paul Fonfara, embellished by violins, cellos, clarinets, guitars, drums, pianos and basses played by the likes of Chris Hepola, Josh Granowski, Will Dockendorf, and Christa Schnieder. we describe the music as Eastern European tinged indie gutter blues/shimmering melancholia/sad bastard chamber country/spaghetti western heroin klezmer.
Nora Petran is a local Iowa City singer and songwriter. She is very adept at playing guitar and she has a very beautiful voice. If you have already seen her, then you will want to see her again, and if you haven't seen Nora yet then you should.
