Co-headlining Motion City Soundtrack & Relient K tour offers a taste of each band

Co-headlining Motion City Soundtrack & Relient K tour offers a taste of each band

| November 19, 2013 | 0 Comments

A co-headlining tour causes a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand, each band gets decently full sets. Yet on the other hand, no matter who you came to see, you can’t help but wish for more. In the case of the other night’s Relient K and Motion City Soundtrack co-headlining show at Emo’s in Austin, I was happy to hear so many great songs from each band, but call me spoiled; I couldn’t help but wish for even more. With three bands on the bill playing 45 minutes each, it was a great taste of each, but not quite enough to satiate my appetite.

The Midland was packed Sunday night for a strange, but good night of music from the Strangeland tour. The UK’s alternative pop rock group was set to headline the evening with big, motivational singalong numbers, but first the audience was introduced to an energetic new rock band from California, Youngblood Hawke.

Regina Spektor & Only Son put the ‘music’ back in the Music Hall

Regina Spektor & Only Son put the ‘music’ back in the Music Hall

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.

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’

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

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.

Happy Even When It Rains: Buzz Under the Stars fans brave the storm for Garbage, fun., Silversun Pickups & more

The summer in Kansas City, much like the rest of the country, has been sweltering. For the first two bands at 96.5 the Buzz’s Buzz Under the Stars, that sweltering heat showed no signs of going anywhere. But Mother Nature felt like testing the music fans’ dedication to the show and rolled in a very large storm. Nearly two hours later, the storm passed with a double rainbow apology and the show would go on, making for one of the most memorable Buzz Under the Stars to date. And no, the irony of it raining just before Garbage played was not lost on anyone.
