Fall Out Boy triumphantly returns to Kansas City & New Politics brings the dance party

Fall Out Boy triumphantly returns to Kansas City & New Politics brings the dance party

| June 27, 2013 | 0 Comments

Kansas City’s Uptown Theater had a line already forming the day before Fall Out Boy was set to perform a sold out show with New Politics. A few hours before showtime, that line was wrapped around the building and several blocks past. Fans were wearing homemade shirts professing their love or ‘I survived the hiatus’ messages. Others were singing along to the band’s music blaring from their phones. The show hadn’t even started and already you could see the eagerness and love these fans had for this Chicago pop punk band. Fortunately, Fall Out Boy would not disappoint the high expectations of these waiting fans.

Matt & Kim with Oberhofer deliver an untypical, but spectacular performance in Kansas

Matt & Kim with Oberhofer deliver an untypical, but spectacular performance in Kansas

It would appear that nobody told Oberhofer they were just the opening act for Matt and Kim. The Brooklyn band behaved like they were headliners…and in return the packed Liberty Hall crowd treated them as such.

2012 seems to be the year of the feel-good folk music and as long as that means we keep getting bands like Colorado’s The Lumineers, then that’s a really good thing.

Imagine Dragons & AWOLNATION leave Kansas City fans feeling ‘On Top of the World’

Imagine Dragons & AWOLNATION leave Kansas City fans feeling ‘On Top of the World’

Most bands save their big hit singles for last…It’s a strategy that makes sense if you’re worried that people are waiting around to hear that one song and will leave if you play it any sooner. Yet Sunday evening, two’s bands took a gamble and played their “big” singles earlier in the set. And guess what? The packed house remained packed. That’s how hooked Imagine Dragons and AWOLNATION’s fans were on their sets. From the diehards to the casual radio-only listeners, everyone wanted to hear every second of this show; it was that good.

Metric delivers its most memorable Kansas City performance

Metric delivers its most memorable Kansas City performance

| September 17, 2012 | 0 Comments

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.

Rufus Wainwright’s Chicago concert like a ‘religious experience’

Rufus Wainwright’s Chicago concert like a ‘religious experience’

| August 26, 2012 | 0 Comments

The Rufus Wainwright show at the Vic Theater in Chicago can probably be described as a religious experience. The lights are off and the this turn of the century building is sitting in an apprehensive silence. Out of the darkness a voice starts singing, “I’ve tried to do what I can, but the churches have run out of candles.” Church has begun and the choirs are singing.

The All-American Rejects show that touring can still be fun & fresh even after 10 years

The All-American Rejects show that touring can still be fun & fresh even after 10 years

| April 5, 2012 | 0 Comments

For ten years, The All-American Rejects have been touring & putting out new music. Most bands get burnt out pretty quickly & it either shows in their performances or they break up. That’s not the case for the All-American Rejects; not only are the original four still playing together, but they’re all playing together and smiling. That’s right – these guys still have a fresh attitude and genuinely enjoy still being on the stage. Lucky for them & most importantly lucky for their fans that came out to their performance at Kansas City’s the Beaumont Club.

Despite skanky offerings, bands remain the main attraction of Afentra’s VD Party

Despite skanky offerings, bands remain the main attraction of Afentra’s VD Party

| February 12, 2012 | 1 Comments

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.
