LouFest is a great festival for first-timers. The festival is conveniently located in the heart of the city, fest food is affordable and vegetarian friendly, there are plenty of shady places to sit and chill out and the weather should be good. Still, here are some tips for the first-time fest crowd.
As Dallas packed into the House of Blues for an evening featuring Passion Pit and Atlas Genius, the attendees discovered the perfect reprieve and way to celebrate a break from labor. The next few hours transported attendees into a blissful plane filled with dancing, clapping and more.
Kansas City’s Power & Light District has been packed with music fans all summer looking for a reprieve from the heat with good music and a cold beer. Canada’s Metric was the latest band to join in the free music summer series in the entertainment district with San Francisco’s Panic Is Perfect opening.
A 40-minute rain delay didn’t dampen spirits as fans patiently awaited the effervescent Walk the Moon, though it did add a few smears to the fans’ carefully painted faces.
In Kansas City, the pinnacle of all the summer alternative music shows seems to be Buzz Beach Ball with the who’s who in “now” bands playing a big venue like Sporting Park.
The acclaimed book, Paper Towns, by author John Green (The Fault in Our Stars) is coming to the big screen Friday, July 24. But first, Green and stars of the film stopped by Dallas for an exclusive fan event and sneak peek at the movie.
Everybody wants to rule the world, and this summer Tears for Fears is well on their way to global domination. At least, they are if their Kansas City show is anything to judge by.
96.5 the Buzz kicked off their Buzz Under the Stars concert series at the Kansas City Power & Light Live stage.
Each year, local Kansas City radio station 96.5 the Buzz hosts an “adults only” prom. Rather than booking a tacky cover band, serving punch and charging a fee, this prom was completely free, offered legal booze and featured a killer lineup of music.
Walk the Moon’s hit single is the definition of ubiquitous in Dallas — even going as far as getting radio play on a country station despite its very synth pop sound. So it was no surprise when the band’s upcoming tour date at House of Blues sold out so quickly that tour promoters hastily found a slightly larger venue, South Side Ballroom, to hold the throngs of eager fans decked out in their face paint and Coachella-esque headbands. The change to South Side Ballroom ended up being nice nostalgic throwback for the band, who held the opening slot at the same venue last fall when they came through town, and now they’re selling it out as headliners.
Sleater-Kinney is one of those influential bands that everyone should see at least once in their lives.
