A well-known Kansas City venue, The Beaumont Club, is shutting its doors, numerous reports say.

“We’re going to get smooth. Real smooth.” -Friends
If there was one word I had to pick to describe Thursday night’s concert at the Beaumont Club, it would be “smooth.” The show featured Two Door Cinema Club, Friends and Guards and each of the bands brought their own level of “smooth” to the evening.
Missy Higgins’ Razzle Dazzle tour with Katie Herzig and Butterfly Boucher stopped by Kansas City’s Beaumont Club Saturday for a night of singer-songwriter music.
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.

This was Metric’s best Kansas City performance to date.
Alright, multi-instrumentalist Ray Suen. It’s official. I’m jealous of you. First you got to perform as part of The Killers’ band and now you’re touring for Childish Gambino. One person should not be allowed to have that much awesome to himself. It’s not fair! But despite all my envy, I’m also really impressed. You see, The Killers, as an alternative rock group, do not really have anything in common with a rap/hip hop artist, but just by your presence, you’re a reminder that Childish Gambino is not your normal rap/hip hop act. It’s because of Childish Gambino’s unusualness that this indie rock fan found herself at a concert a little outside of my usual genre…and Childish Gambino’s sold out Beaumont Club show was worth stepping outside of my box.
New york duo Sleigh Bells brought their wall of sound (literally a wall; their set up consisted of a series of stacked amps) and wild strobe light show to Kansas City’s Beaumont Club. Check out photographer Scott Spychalski’s photos from the performance.
Kansas City’s Beaumont Club had quickly sold out when Snow Patrol was announced as coming to town and the venue was already packed with people scrambling for a good spot well before opener Ed Sheeran started. But when the lone singer with an acoustic guitar humbly took to the stage, one thing was clear. These people had come for one thing and one thing only: Snow Patrol. Sheeran would have his work cut out for him to win this crowd. Fortunately, Sheeran is a one man superstar band.
