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

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.
