The Fuss is a DIY Indie-Rock group from Des Moines, Iowa (est. 2015). Combining guitar-centric elements of ’60s garage-rock, poignant lyricism and buoyant vocal melodies, they’ve crafted an engaging and energetic live set with a sound that’s been described as “sonically adventurous*” and “severely catchy**”. Beginning as the solo project of songwriter Joey Lyons, The Fuss now features Matt Nelson, Ben Waldschmitt, and Nick Lucs and has set itself apart in the Des Moines music scene.

Diego Danger is foot-stompin’ blues from the heartlands!  Somewhere between traditional and modern, the sound projects an earthy aesthetic of blue collar America meets stoney laid-back vibes. Started 2007 in Colorado as a solo project of IA native, Adam Smith. Three albums and a lot of shows later, continues to grow into a blues machine with guitarist “Django Gypsy” Justin Snyder.

Markaus

Legends of Tomorrow
4PM

Markaus approaches hip hop as rebellion and revolution from a conscious rap perspective, drawing musical influence from TechN9ne, Nas, and Gucci Mane, accented with tinges of rock, soul and jazz. From growing up in Kansas City to making a new home and starting life as an entrepreneur in Des Moines, his message resonates with the public. Markaus’ music and lyrics keep in mind the struggles of everyday people, and calls for action and change. GENRE: Rap, Hip Hop
