Love was in the air in Kansas City Saturday night. A rainbow arched over the Crossroads stage with promises of a good night as fans waited for ZZ Ward and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes to take the stage. ZZ Ward’s bandmates came out first, dropping a beat and amping the crowd up before […]
The cancellation of Kanrocksas could have meant a dull weekend for Kansas City music lovers, but thankfully a few bands had faith that our city still wanted to rock out. So Imagine Dragons, Capital Cities, Twenty One Pilots, Family of the Year and Churchill teamed together for a special show under the stars at Kansas City’s Starlight Theater. Even with the short notice, these bands managed to pack a full house and deliver a wallop of a show.
Friday was ripe with musical options in Kansas City. Matt & Kim were playing a free show downtown, dozens of local bands were scattered at venues throughout the city and O.A.R. was kicking off their tour at the Crossroads. Despite the heat and the dozens of other options, an eager crowd packed the outdoor venue in the Crossroads for O.A.R. and they brought their dancing shoes.
“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.
An ominous forecast greeted us the morning of May 30, but my friend Ashley and I were feeling bold and intrepid as we braved our way through the storms to Columbia (our starting point was Springfield, MO, about three hours away). I mean, The Hush Sound is back after a five-year hiatus. A little rain and tornadic wind wasn’t going to keep us away.

With their own mix of alternative rock, ska, reggae, and bohemian jams, Boston natives, State Radio, brought their hometown passion to the Bottleneck on Thursday November 15th. People of all ages took shelter from the cold and warmed up with beer. Lots of it. In fact, the majority of the audience appeared to be adults, […]
For a place called the “Music Hall,” the Kansas City venue rarely sees a live band performance (it usually hosts theater productions). It’s a pity that it doesn’t pursue musicians more because it was the perfect setting for the Regina Spektor and Only Son concert.
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.
