Kidd G Coming To East Moline’s Rust Belt TONIGHT!

With a rare gift for turning his hometown experiences into natural melodies, Kidd G has found tremendous success by staying true to his roots. As a kid growing up in small-town Georgia, he first started creating his own songs at the age of 15, and soon arrived at a gritty but melodic sound equally inspired by classic country and hip-hop. On the heels of his chart-climbing breakthrough single “Dirt Road”—an October 2020 release whose video surpassed 5 million YouTube views in little over a month and now has 13M views to date—Kidd G has recently shared his debut EP; the powerfully heartfelt Teenage Dream. Now having surpassed 1.5M monthly Spotify listeners, his tracks have seen radio play from KIXX Country Radio in Australia, and reached new peaks on highly coveted country playlists including Amazon Music’s ‘Country Heat’ (peaked at #2), and Spotify’s ‘Hot Country’ (peaked at #10). Kidd G is now back in the studio and eager to share all new music that will continue to showcase his unique raw talent.

Celebrate The Lives And Music Of Jewish Composers With Ballet Quad Cities

Our Will to Live, a new presentation by Ballet Quad Cities, will be held October 8, 2022 at 7:30pm at Adler Theatre, Davenport, Iowa. A brilliant, bold-as-can-be, and, to our knowledge, precedent-setting program of original choreography by Courtney Lyon and Emily Kate Long celebrating and dramatizing works by Jewish composers who fled the Nazis or tragically died in the camps. The significance — and unfortunately, relevance — of this program is deep. Our Will to Live is a step toward a reset, resurrecting the music and vivifying it via dance. However, despite their tragedies, the meaning of these composers’ and artists’ lives — their iron-like determination, defiance, and courage in asserting their will to live as fully as possible — despite the most humiliating, debilitating circumstances — are profoundly inspirational and an eloquent, intense testimony of human dignity. We honor them with this performance.
