The eclectic quintet of female multi-instrumentalists known as Awful Purdies are celebrating their tenth anniversary as a band this year. Group members take turns stepping up as songwriter and lead singer when they perform. The Iowa City band played a live set at the Kum & Go Theatre venue of the Des Moines Social Club on Oct. 7, opening for Gaelynn Lea. The show was broadcast live on IPR's Studio One Tracks.
