The Gas Lamp in Des Moines will host a blues doubleheader tonight. The early show is the venue's weekly Friday Work Release Party with Bob Pace and The Dangerous Band. The nightcap will feature Davina and The Vagabonds. Here are all the details.

Iowa Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Iowa Blues Hall of Famer Bob Pace leads Des Moines into another weekend with the Gas Lamp's weekly Work Release Party from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Pace and The Dangerous Band, bassist Tom Murphy and new drummer Jon McCutchen, will play three hours of blues, rock, soul, and funk while the Gas Lamp offers free food 'til it's gone. The party is always a good time and has a cover charge of just $5.

The nightcap finds Minneapolis/St. Paul's Davina and The Vagabonds taking the Gas Lamp stage starting at 9 p.m. The quintet fronted by vocalist and pianist Davina Sowers has played blues, roots, and jazz music at festivals all over the world, including the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, the Thunder Bay Blues Festival in Ontario, the Monterey Jazz Festival, the WC Handy Music Festival in Alabama, the Rawa Blues Festival in Poland, the Sierre Blues Festival in Switzerland, and others. The band has shared the stage with the likes of Pinetop Perkins, Aaron Neville, Robert Cray, Los Lonely Boys, Booker T and The MGs, and a host of other big names. DATV released their latest album, Black Cloud, in 2011. The show will have a $15 cover. Check out Davina and The Vagabonds in action in the embedded video.
