“Happy Father’s Day, bastards.” That’s how Joshua Tillman opened his set at the Granada Sunday evening. Rather than offending the eager audience that chose to spend Father’s Day at a concert, Tillman was greeted by cheers. Lawrence had chosen to celebrate the holiday with a special Father — Father John Misty.

I hate to say it, but I had low expectations for Pitch Perfect. The initial premise of it sounded like something a little to late to come off of the Glee singing/comedy hype (Glee has made its mark and in my opinion isn’t as big of a deal as it once was, I am however a Gleek). [...]
In reality, it is theorized that backwards time travel would be impossible because of the grandfather paradox. The grandfather paradox proposes the situation of a time traveller who goes back in time to the time when his or her grandfather was unmarried and at that time. The traveller kills his or her grandfather, therefore making it so the time traveller is never born as meant to be. Of course, you don’t have a paradox if the time traveller is sent back in time and immediately killed. That’s how closing the loop works in the new Rian Johnson action thriller, “Looper.”
To borrow a line from the movie, “Pitch Perfect” is “accawesome.”
Most bands save their big hit singles for last…It’s a strategy that makes sense if you’re worried that people are waiting around to hear that one song and will leave if you play it any sooner. Yet Sunday evening, two’s bands took a gamble and played their “big” singles earlier in the set. And guess what? The packed house remained packed. That’s how hooked Imagine Dragons and AWOLNATION’s fans were on their sets. From the diehards to the casual radio-only listeners, everyone wanted to hear every second of this show; it was that good.

If you thought Supernatural teen adventure books-to-film were ending with Harry Potter and Twilight, you thought wrong. There’s a whole slue of adaptations in the works and the next one focuses on a magical girl and an ordinary boy. “Beautiful Creatures” is due out February 13, 2013 and tells the story of ordinary local boy Ethan (Alder Ehrenreich) and new-to-town Lena (Alice Englert).

Canadian alt rockers Metric are no strangers to Kansas City, but the popular band has mostly performed as an opening act for Kansas City shows. Finally, the band was playing the city in a much deserved headlining spot and the difference in this performance compared to the other ones in the last few years was astounding. This was Metric’s best Kansas City performance to date.
