Third Base Brewery Presents:

Jim's Birthday Beer Week Blowout!

Punk Rock and Beers for a great cause!

We are using our Cedar Rapids Craft Beer Week event to raise money for Trees Forever and their replanting efforts in the area. We'll be just over a year removed from the Derecho and still a long way from having enough trees planted to get us back to some sense of normalcy.

Profits from the show will be donated to the organization

A special beer is being brewed for the event and a portion of each sale will also be donated to their replanting efforts.


Direct Hit! https://crownofnothing.com/

Fat Wreck Chords band Direct Hit! is a Milwaukee based punk rock band formed in 2007 by singer/guitarist Nick Woods. Its current lineup consists of Nick Woods, Devon Kay, Maura Weaver, Joram Zbichorski, and Logan Stang.

"Direct Hit! is a band that gives pop punk a better name. The angry vocals of Nick Woods and upbeat sound of the rest of the band outshine the run-of-the-mill bands that have taken over mainstream media . They have managed to create a great equilibrium between hardcore and pop punk" - Punkhouse Press

The Slow Death https://jessethorson.bandcamp.com/album/the-slow-death-punishers

The Slow Death, fronted by ex-Pretty Boy Thorson & the Falling Angels mouthpiece Jesse Swan Thorson and backed by a rotating cast that includes Falling Angel Dave Strait, Dillinger Four’s Paddy Costello, The Ergs! Mike Yannich, and a slew of others depending on availability any given night. It’s also a natural extension of Pretty Boy Thorson, featuring a confrontational-yet-personal blend of deep-seated emotion and punk fury and frustration. Pretty Boy Thorson directly mined the emotional backdrop of country music while playing gruff-drunk punk. With The Slow Death, it’s honed into the power chord format with more punch and bite atop those lyrical laments.

Death Kill Overdrive https://deathkilloverdrive.bandcamp.com/releases

Iowa City butt rock band featuring Oliver LaFave, Kane Edwards, Molly Enochson, Jeff Keyser. Who have been in 85% of Iowa City bands over the past 10 years. Their recently released album is full of catchy hooks and infectious melodies.

The Mimes http://www.themimes-suck.com/

Formed at the beginning of the government-issued mass quarantine as a result of the Covid-19 virus, Cincinnati’s The Mimes found solace in the shut down. As a group of friends living in the same building, as well as sharing a practice space/recording studio, it only made sense for them to utilize their newfound abundance of time together as a creative outlet. What started with simple jam sessions followed with dreams of what an interactive art collective could look like in the current pandemic, eventually turning into a full-fledged album complete with a collection of as many music videos they could make themselves. While each member has always kept a solid root of DIY ethos, their attempts to be as mindful and safe as possible left them no other option but to completely do-it-themselves, offering a uniquely intimate sound and image.
