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 […]

Top Ten Songs by Local Musicians

It’s that time of year. The Plaza has outlined their buildings with lights, the weather is (finally) changing, people are overeating and over-shopping. 2016 is almost over. And with the closing of the year comes top ten list. To end Local Week, I want to count down my top ten songs from local musicians. There […]

Aaron Alexander Redoes rAdiAnt

I came across Aaron Alexander at the first Shuttlecock Showcase. The young MC and his producer, BWILL, took the stage and without pretense unspooled some of the most developed Kansas City hip hop I’ve heard in a minute. With all the worldliness of groups like De La Soul and The Roots and all the visceral […]

Record Store Day Cometh

I know it’s over a month until Record Store Day descends from on high and graces us with all the exclusive ear candy we can handle. But since the list has been officially posted, I can’t help but write about. Whether you’re wanting a classic reissue, a contemporary rarity, or a first ever on vinyl […]

The Fog, Youth Pool, and Friends @ Mills Record Company

Tomorrow, Shuttlecock Magazine and Mills Record Company will host the concert to start 2016. Ranging from basement punk to rap, from shoegaze to guitar pop, this in store will definitely warm up this cold January. Killakee Kat makes some unforgiving punk. Sounding like a grimy version of The Locusts mixed with a quicker Menace Beach, […]
