STUDIO 13 IS THE PROUD HOME OF THE I.C. KINGS

Since debuting in April 2009, the I.C. Kings have been promoting individuality, creativity, and shameless disregard for gender norms. Our cast of characters includes heartthrobs, class clowns, bros, mysterious foreigners, and everything in between. Headlining monthly at Studio 13 since January of 2010, every I.C. Kings show is filled with variety. 
 

What to expect at one of our shows? Hit songs, swanky costumes, flashy dance moves, prop-laden skits, hearty laughs, big surprises, sexy reveals, and much more. The I.C. Kings shows provide a space for our community to join together for a carefree evening that is engaging, silly, and always fun.

Iowa's ONLY 19+ Nightclub

Studio 13 (previously known as the Alley Cat), has been the Corridor's favorite LGBTQIA+ nightclub for over a decade.  Located in a historical building in downtown Iowa City, S13 has become a foundation for the Iowa City LGBTQIA+  community as well as one of the most popular nightclubs in Iowa.

We work hard to be leaders and guide those in the LGBTQIA+ community leading by example.  We cannot control the actions of others but believe involvement and action are the best ways to bring about the change we all want and the best in everyone.  We all make mistakes and can be better people.  Get involved, be a mentor, lead by example.  Join us for monthly Pride meetings or PRIDE Potlucks.  We are always here for those who want to reach out and join us in making things better for all.

We are a place that welcomes everyone, from the college freshman who is just coming out, to the elder pillar of the community.  If you do not feel welcome or have an experience that is less than positive, we want to know and will do our best to address it.  We know we can't make everyone love us but we can be a place that, with the right attitude, everyone will have fun!

Sincerely, Webmaster - sthirteen.com
