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, […]
Arc Flash‘s Carbon Copy is a debut that feels less like a debut than something that has always existed below the surface of this reality. The Lawrence duo makes music that hums at the weirder edges of indie pop–blending effect-grinded vocals, jittering guitar riffs, and unstoppable percussion with the ease of a much more mature band. Maybe […]
High Dive Records & Whatever Forever presents the release of the new Arc Flash album “Carbon Copy”. Shows starts w/ Chasm at 6 pm. Always all ages, always free.

This month, Mills Record Company is also going to make it the month of the most amazing shows. During the first full weekend, the store will host: Heidi Gluck and The Pony Show, […]

With 2016 in the past and 2017 freshly here, it’s time to ask the important questions, like what records will be on our want lists, which releases will be delayed, and when will that new Gorillaz album come out. Rather than review a record this week, I wanted to write about some fabled releases that […]

It’s graduation season, which also means it’s the beginning of summer for many. And summer is the perfect time for tube-warmed, garage psych vibes. Who better to fill this need than Psychic Heat and Arc Flash? Psychic Heat will be celebrating their latest High Dive release, Sunshower. Both of these bands make music that has […]
It’s that time of year again. SXSW is just around the corner, so all the bands we love around town are trying to get their finances in order so they can make a trip to the concert festival and show off the breadth and depth of the Kansas City music scene. It’s not easy–musicians have […]
This Thursday, The Brick will host one hell of a show bill. The concert will be a must attend for any fan of dirty, fuzzed-over punk. Whether it’s Arc Flash‘s mathy play, Lil Toughies‘ bouncing punk, Sneaky Creeps‘ wailing distortions, or Leggy‘s catchy garage rock, the show will offer something for everyone. This late show […]
House shows are the life blood of local music–especially in Kansas City. With venues closing, charging an arm and a leg for tickets, and only hosting shows that are 21+, with musicians that don’t play with local acts, house shows are the best way to catch some of the phenomenal music being made in the […]
I’ve been chronicling my top New Year’s Eve Concerts (here and here). The third (and final) concert that is causing me to make some tough decisions is happening in Lawrence. The show features rock n roll wizards Gnarly Davidson, punk weirdos The Fog, experimental cyborgs Arc Flash, and spacey funk-master Approach. In short, The Replay […]
