The Warehouse in Des Moines has lost yet another show. The fledgling venue is still struggling to open its doors and has now moved a third concert to another venue. The Stitched Up Heart “Skeleton Key” tour stop scheduled for tonight has been moved to Whiskey Dixx (215 4th Street, Des Moines), and the start time has been moved up to 5 p.m. (originally 7 p.m.) All advanced tickets for the concert will be honored, and tickets may also be purchased at the door for $5.
In other Central Iowa music news, Des Moines jazz singer Max Wellman announced details on Wednesday for the return of The Songbook Project, a yearly music subscription service featuring 50 exclusive recordings of The Max Wellman Trio’s interpretations of Great American Songbook composers from the 1920’s through the 1960’s. The 2014 version of The Songbook Project will feature hits from Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, and many more great jazz artists. This year, for the first time, all tracks for The Songbook Project will be recorded in front of a live audience at The Temple for Performing Arts. The performance will be on Wednesday, November 13 at 7:00 p.m., and all attendees will be able to take advantage of a 20% discount on a subscription to The Songbook Project. Digital and CD subscriptions may be made through Wellman’s website, and tickets for the Temple show are available for purchase through TicketLeap. Recordings will be distributed to subscribers on the 15th of each month starting in January.
Wellman also mentioned in the same email press release that his new album, You Must Believe in Spring, will be released at his 4th Annual Home for the Holidays concert in December. Details on both the album and the concert will be announced in the coming weeks.
