If you are looking for live music in Central Iowa on Wednesday night, here are two shows to keep in mind. Carrie Nation and the Speakeasy will be performing at the Gas Lamp in Des Moines, and The Steel Wheels will take the stage at The Maintenance Shop in Ames. Here are all the details.

High-energy "brass 'n' grass" band Carrie Nation and the Speakeasy (see embedded video) will headline the Gas Lamp in Des Moines on Wednesday night. The collective of roots musicians from Wichita, Kansas has released multiple albums and played festivals and venues all over the U.S. Also on the bill for the night are South Carolina Power Folk act Rachel Kate, Des Moines hardcore band Submerged, Des Moines rockers Skin of Earth, Des Moines pop act Doctor Dentist, and Des Moines singer/songwriter Matthew James. The 21-and-over 9 p.m. show has a $5 cover charge.

Fresh off of recording their Daytrotter session earlier in the day, Virginia roots band The Steel Wheels (pictured) will perform a special seated show at The Maintenance Shop in Ames tomorrow night at 8 p.m. The four-piece string band has played Merlefest (last weekend), Stagecoach, Bristol Rhythm & Roots, the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival, and others festivals all over the U.S., and the band will host their own brand new music festival, the first annual Red Wing Roots Music Festival, in July. The Steel Wheels released a new studio album entitled No More Rain last year and a 7" vinyl single/digital download for the songs "We've Got a Fire"/"Winter Is Coming" earlier this year. Tickets to the show are $20 for the general public and $15 for ISU students. Ticket prices will go $2 up tomorrow. This is an all ages event.
