Feeling a little emotional lately? Connecticut emo/indie/pop punk powerhouse Sorority Noise will bring their feel-good/feel-sad brand of catchy rock to the Jackpot in Lawrence tomorrow – May 9th. Their sound gets them lumped in with groups like Modern Baseball, Tigers Jaw and The Front Bottoms, but Sorority Noise choose to incorporate louder and heavier moments […]

Free Event Alert: Black metal documentary BLACKHEARTS screening

Ever since the mid-90s, Norway has been musically associated with black metal – the most controversial subgenre to emerge from heavy metal. Fraught with church burnings, murders and suicides and the ever-present Satan worship, it seems like the best place on Earth to start an evil rock and roll band, right? Blackhearts is a documentary […]

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 […]

Second Hand King to Reveal FRANKIE @ recordBAR

This Friday at recordBar, Second Hand King will debut cuts from his forthcoming album, FRANKIE. From what has been posted, FRANKIE will move in a different direction than Second Hand King’s second album, Almost Blue. Whereas Almost Blue brooded and coiled around its melancholy, this album bounces lighter and more upbeat (even when it focuses on the less savoury […]

Big Jesus, Existem, LAZAR WOLF, & No Place @ Riot Room

Wednesdays can be the worst–the past weekend is a phantom memory and the next weekend is still very nebulous. But this Wednesday will not be one of those thanks to Big Jesus, Existem, LAZAR WOLF, and No Place. These four bands will take Riot Room’s stage for a show that will rock the mid-week into […]

P.O.S. and Ceschi @ Riot Room

Without P.O.S., there wouldn’t be Death Grips or Clipping or anything on Anticon. The Minneapolis native is able to charge a line with such an intensity that even the most mundane sentiments, when spilling from his mouth, have a punch few MCs can match. Joining P.O.S. on stage will be Ceschi Ramos, who splices lightning […]
