Prior to co-headlining the KUNI Blues Blow Out 2.9.13, Ana Popovic played a blistering show in the Riverside Casino Show Lounge  in Riverside, Ia.  The stage was located at the back of the casino, equipped with state of the art sound and lighting equipment and served its attendees well, giving them access to a dance floor, seats and adult beverages. Did I mention there was no cover charge? Kim Reed  covered her at the Blues Blowout and reported another stellar performance from Ana and her band.  It was my first time seeing Ana and will definitely put her on my must see radar.
