“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.

Metric delivers its most memorable Kansas City performance

Metric delivers its most memorable Kansas City performance

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.

Kansas City tries to keep up with Childish Gambino’s lyrical tornado

Kansas City tries to keep up with Childish Gambino’s lyrical tornado

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.

Snow Patrol lights up Kansas City, Ed Sheeran wins the crowd

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.

Middle of the Map Recap – Fun is true to its name, locals impress

Middle of the Map Recap – Fun is true to its name, locals impress

| April 10, 2012 | 1 Comments

Whomever says that cool things never happen in Kansas City clearly has never been to one of the Middle of the Map Festivals. Middle of the Map is kind of like a miniature version of Austin’s SXSW festival, but with a spotlight on Kansas City/Lawrence bands. This year’s festival kept the Westport setting of last year’s debut, featuring over 100 bands spread across 10 venues. Middle of the Map expanded to include a third day to accommodate even more bands than last year. In addition to an extra day of music, an interactive forum with movie screenings was even added. Headlining bands from across the nation such as the catchy Fun., a reunited Mission to Burma, the chill Neon Indian and the wild Fucked Up were part of the draw, but a stellar local lineup featuring bands such as Quiet Corral, Cowboy Indian Bear, Making Movies and Capybara made the ticket price a steal. It’s with little surprise that the festival sold out nearly all three night.
