Middle of The Map @ Mills Record Company

Record Store Day has come and gone, and while there are still some exclusives gracing the racks of your favorite local record joint, the Kansas City music train will not stop. Jumping from wax to stage, the next event on the horizon is Middle of the Map. The festival announced its line up almost two […]

Middle of The Map: The Riot Room

Middle of The Map is next week. The three day festival turns the entire city into a veritable music factory. From Thursday night to Saturday night, national and local acts share stages across Kansas City–which, coincidentally, makes for a perfect weekend of discovering new favorite bands and venues and bars. The line up for Middle […]

Middle of The Map: The Tank Room

Middle of The Map is fast approaching. The three day music festival that turns all of Kansas City into a venue is, in its 7th year, stacked with such talent. It would be impossible to write about every single act worth seeing this year (which is all of them to be honest). Instead, I want to […]

Record Store Day: And The Beat Goes On

So Record Store Day has come and left. In its wake, there are far fewer records in the racks at Mills Record Company and so many exclusive releases nest in milk crates across the Kansas City area. That said, at Mills Record Company, Record Store Day is more than a single day. The party continues […]

Record Store Day Compilation

Record Store Day is just days away. This year is the tenth anniversary of the event, and both Record Store Day and Mills Record Company are doing it up. The former releasing some of the most bombastic exclusives in a minute; the latter augmented that new vinyl smell with freshly arrived wax, refreshments, live music, […]

Record Store Day: Live Music and More

So Record Store Day is only a few days away. I’ve written about some of the amazing exclusive releases you’ll find at Mills Record Company (too many to list; just type “record store day” in the blog’s search bar), but I want to focus on something just as good as limited edition pressings: live music. […]

DAMN., Kendrick

There’s a temptation for any artist who achieves success to repeat what works, not so with Kendrick Lamar’s latest album, DAMN.. Ditching the live band and heavily jazz and funk influenced sound of To Pimp A Butterfly and untitled unmastered, DAMN. burns through its 55 minutes with an intensity that is lyrical and physical. The album begins properly with “DNA.” […]

A Look In The Local Bin: Record Store Day Edition

Record Store Day is on the horizon, and I have been writing a lot about some of the sick releases that will be found at Mills Record Company on Saturday. That said, the day isn’t just about records. Yes, it’s also about live music, bringing vinylphiles together, shopping local, coffee and donuts, and, most importantly, […]
