Kansas City was in the first quarter of Gooch Palms’ nearly 40 show American tour. From across oceans and half a continent, they brought their own brand of mid-tempo silly-ish, sun-soaked punk with a strong flair for showmanship.
Each year, local Kansas City radio station 96.5 the Buzz hosts an “adults only” prom. Rather than booking a tacky cover band, serving punch and charging a fee, this prom was completely free, offered legal booze and featured a killer lineup of music.
Walk the Moon’s hit single is the definition of ubiquitous in Dallas — even going as far as getting radio play on a country station despite its very synth pop sound. So it was no surprise when the band’s upcoming tour date at House of Blues sold out so quickly that tour promoters hastily found a slightly larger venue, South Side Ballroom, to hold the throngs of eager fans decked out in their face paint and Coachella-esque headbands. The change to South Side Ballroom ended up being nice nostalgic throwback for the band, who held the opening slot at the same venue last fall when they came through town, and now they’re selling it out as headliners.
Each year, Kansas City celebrates Valentine’s Day with a much better gift than hard candy hearts: a free concert. This year’s free Buzz VD party featured Lights, Melanie Martinez, In the Valley Below and more.
Bronchitis couldn’t hold back Motion City Soundtrack from treating Dallas to a special performance of Commit This to Memory in its entirety.
In the case of Guster’s current tour, it’s in your best interest to get there early for opener Kishi Bashi, especially if you have never heard of this artist because you will fall in love.
Kansas City celebrated Thanksgiving with a homegrown concert. Local acts joined the guitar legend Johnny Marr at the Midland.
Walk the Moon embarked on their first headlining tour supporting their new record, Talking Is Hard. True to their first single off this record, “Shut Up and Dance,” that’s exactly what the sold out crowd at Dallas did for this Ohio four-piece.

Gaslight Anthem and Against Me! have always been a favorite in Kansas City, but when the punk rockers in Against Me took to the Uptown stage, technical problems plagued the set and the band walked off after just 3 songs. Dismayed fans were in for a treat though.
