“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.

AWOLNATION has played countless radio shows in Kansas City this past year, but this time they were here on their own terms and headlining a show at the Beaumont. If you thought that KC had their AWOL fill, you’d be wrong. If there’s one thing the sold out Beaumont Club show proved, it is that Kansas City pledges their allegiance to the AWOLNATION.

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.

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.
Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers took the stage at The Bottleneck (Lawrence Kansas music staple) on November 30th with John McLaughlin for the Boys Only Plus Girls Tour.

A sold out sign greeted fans outside the RecordBar for the Mates of State show, leaving a handful of people left outside with shocked expressions. Perhaps back in the day when Mates of State were just a mere local Kansas City/Lawrence band, there would have been plenty of tickets still available, but Mates of State have come a long way since their humble Midwest beginnings. For those with the foresight to purchase advance tickets, they were treated to a fun, feel good show with lots of dancing.

There must be something in the water in Liverpool because that city produces some of the most amazing bands. We all know that Liverpool has given us the Beatles, but the great city has also given the world The Wombats.

11.02.2011 is a palindrome day and there was no better way to celebrate this rare palindrome holiday than with a performance from a band clever enough to write a song about palindromes. Kansas City lucked out on Palindrome Day with a Beaumont Club concert featuring plenty of math and trivia-filled songs from They Might Be Giants.
Usually when music lovers show support for their favorite artist, they simply wear a t-shirt in support. But the fans of Deadmau5 take fandom to whole new level.
