Great news! One band gets a "redo" at Uptown Friday Nights on June 7.  But wait! THIS week's show is also going to be great!

Remember when you used to make a "mixtape", featuring all your favorite songs in one place? There are all sorts of sources for that now, thanks to technology (including one particular radio station and their free mobile app), but there's a local band that offers it live on stage everytime they perform. Their name leaves no doubt to what they are: "The Mixtape".

We're proud to partner with the Cedar Rapids Jaycees in hosting the event at the McGrath Amphitheatre this week, and we are super-excited to join you in enjoying everything from AC/DC to Madonna to Bruno Mars to Portugal The Man, Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac, the B52's, literally just about everything, according to their website.

Look for us, broadcasting on site and letting you spin our famous prize wheel for a variety of swag. Again, it's Uptown Friday Nights with "The Mixtape" on May 31.

The gates open at 5:30 and the music gets underway at 6. Admission is $5, and it's a 21-and-over show. You can win free tickets and food/beverage tokens for some great grub and cold drinks from Paul Revere's and  7G on our website.

We hope to see you there!
