Nighttime Mayor Monthly Spotify Playlist:

Currated monthly, this playlist serves as an appetizer for the ears; featuring performing acts coming to The Iowa City Downtown District during the current month. If something tings your ear just right, come out and support these artists virtually or in person!

This one is a little bit country, a little bit death metal, and a dash electronica.  #MaskUpIA
