Hyborian’s Release Party

The Company is killing it. Though young, the Kansas City record label is putting out some of the heaviest releases. From Gnarly Davidson‘s The Tape to Keef Mountain‘s self-titled debut, there seems to be no end to the punishing riffage coming from this label. And 2017 seems to promise more gold. Just a couple weeks after Curse […]

About a week after the new year, Gnarly Davidson will celebrate the release of their 7″ on Replay Records by playing a show at Mills Record Company with Sons of Mourning and Keef Mountain. The event will start […]

Local Week: Keef Mountain

There is not a sound system big enough to contain the riff wizardry that is Keef Mountain. The Kansas City duo makes some of the hardest hitting, stony songs this side of the Mason-Dixon. Their self-titled debut on The Company is chock-full of riff worship, pummeling beats, and addled lyrics–the makings of a perfect stoner […]

Between bars (and even between shows), you can hear hip hop metal, indie pop, punk, folk, country, jazz, and any off-shoot/hybrid genre you can think of. We have a number of […]

Keef Mountain, Godmaker, Moon Tooth, Sharp Weapons @ recordBar

This Thursday, recordBar will host four explosive metal bands. Landing in different spots along the metal spectrum, the bands will guarantee a show that is as varied as it is heavy hitting. From Sharp Weapons‘ southern-grooved metal (think Every Time I Die covering Windhand) to Moon Tooth‘s progressive complexities (think Mastodon meets Between The Buried […]

Live Tonight: Week of January 19th – January 25th: Happy MLK Day!

Happy Martin Luther King day! I would tell you to use the holiday to treat yourself to some live music, but it doesn’t look like there’s much going on during MLK Day this year. Which is okay! Take some time to get ready for the rest of the week, which looks to be just as […]

Live Tonight: Week of August 18th – August 24th: Meet Your Idols!

Have you ever met one of your musical idols in person? I feel lucky that I’m so invested in the Kansas City music scene because it’s opened my eyes to smaller shows where there’s not really a “backstage” area and the bands are more approachable after their set and some just plain like mingling with […]
