2. Maeve Clark & Brian Johannesen

In our second episode, host Elly Hofmaier breaks down how #theshowmustbepaused movement, started by two black women in the music industry, was co-opted into what most knew as #blackouttuesday. The episode features recently retired librarian of 35 years, Maeve Clark, sharing her work and decades of amazing arts experiences in Iowa City. We also spoke with IC singer-songwriter and arts worker, Brian Johannesen, to talk about how the pandemic is affecting not only his work but the music industry, both locally and nationally. 

The episode features music by Alex BodyGossip Cult, and a new release from Purcha$e.

Best Show Ever is produced by the Englert in Iowa City, Iowa, and is supported by Friends of the Englert. Visit to support our programming.
