The Englert Theatre opened in Iowa City, Iowa on September 26, 1912 as a theatrical venue, known for its state of the art film equipment. In 2012 The Englert has once again established notoriety, as it continues to provide quality theatrical events, gaining a following of small venue minded artists and attracting attendees with superb hearing.
Steve Earle is scheduled to make his second appearance in 11 months at the theatre 8/7 and Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett come back 9/2 “plugged-in” with their band Little Feat. I have seen Steve Earle at the Englert each time he came to Iowa City, always a sold-out show. My highlights thus far are the two Drive-By Trucker shows and Jeff Tweedy’s sold-out solo show during the 2011 Mission Creek Festival.
The Englert holds special significance to me as my first concert shoot was Dark Star Orchestra in 2010 at the Englert. iamnotjerry.com came of age as a concert/music related website due their willingness to allow me to shoot numerous shows, all of which are posted on iamnotjerry.com. Thanks to the Englert I went on to shoot at the Mill, University of Iowa Memorial Union SCOPE shows and will do my first show at Gabes in Iowa City in July.
Englert Box Office: Monday – Friday 12:00 to 6:00 PM CST (319) 688-2653 221 East Washington St. Iowa City, IA 52240
