Lawrence had chosen to celebrate the holiday with a special Father — Father John Misty.

Happy Even When It Rains: Buzz Under the Stars fans brave the storm for Garbage, fun., Silversun Pickups & more
The summer in Kansas City, much like the rest of the country, has been sweltering. For the first two bands at 96.5 the Buzz’s Buzz Under the Stars, that sweltering heat showed no signs of going anywhere. But Mother Nature felt like testing the music fans’ dedication to the show and rolled in a very large storm. Nearly two hours later, the storm passed with a double rainbow apology and the show would go on, making for one of the most memorable Buzz Under the Stars to date. And no, the irony of it raining just before Garbage played was not lost on anyone.
Foster the People, 9 more bands bring plenty of surprises to Kansas City’s most memorable Buzz Beach Ball
I have to hand it to 96.5 the Buzz this year – they picked out a diverse and killer lineup for this year’s Buzz Beach Ball and with the surprises during Foster the People’s and Sublime with Rome’s performances, Beach Ball really felt like a festival this year and not just a really long concert.
What can you do with one album? Well if it’s the right kind of album it can secure you performances at Lollapalooza, MTV Video Music Awards and even The Grammy’s. And after just over a year on the market it’s apparent that Young The Giant’s self-titled album is totally the right kind. The group’s travels [...]
There are plenty questionable things going on at the annual Afentra’s VD Party at the Midland Theatre in Kansas City. Cock Ring Toss with inflatable penises (penii?), Spin the Bottle, Unhook the Bra Races and much more. Between the pot smoke and the borderline rape moves, you could almost forget to watch the bands. Almost. Fortunately, the one non-questionable thing about VD Party is that there is going to be good music, good enough to keep your eyes on the stage and off the sketchier behaviors of the audience. This year’s Buzz VD Party featured Middle Class Rut with Chain Gang of 1974, The Lonely Forest and local openers, O Giant Man.
Last week, 96.5 the Buzz took over the Midland Theatre in Kansas City for a series of Night the Buzz Stole Xmas holiday shows. Night 2 featured the ska-rap-rock of 311, the synth pop/dance rock of The Naked and Famous, Surfer Blood’s garage rock and also local rockers Soft Reeds.
Flogging Molly had to cancel their holiday Kansas City performance, but the other bands on the bill — Matt & Kim, Company of Thieves and locals Antennas Up — stepped up and made sure that no one would leave Wednesday’s Midland show disappointed. Wednesday was the explosive finale to the three-part Night the Buzz Stole Xmas radio show series.
Florence+the Machine, Two Door Cinema Club & Cowboy Indian Bear at 96.5 the Buzz’s Midland holiday concert easily the best Christmas present ever
The magic of the holiday season engulfed the Midland Monday night in Kansas City as dulcet sounds filled the air. No, there wasn’t a choir of angels singing heralds about the season, but the voice of Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine might be the closest thing to an angels voice that anyone could hope to hear. Sprinkle in opening acts Cowboy Indian Bear and Two Door Cinema Club and you have yourself a concert that’s the best Christmas present ever.
Good news for Kansas City music lovers: Wednesday, December 7, there will be a free holiday show at the Midland featuring Matt & Kim, Company of Thieves and locals Antennas Up.
Bad news for Kansas City music lovers: this free show comes at the cancellation of Flogging Molly.
