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, […]

A Look In The Local Bin: Arc Flash

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 […]

Where I End and You Begin: Radiohead live in Kansas City 04/05/17

Amidst a 2 1/2 hour set spanning nearly 3 decades of material, UK genre-defining and genre-defying megaliths Radiohead sang, danced and entertained a sold out crowd at the Sprint Center down in Kansas City on a cold and rainy Wednesday night. In a bit of a departure from their high-energy set openers from last year, […]

Swing of the Axe: Power Trip live in Kansas City, MO 03/16/17

In the few months of 2017, one of the most talked-about releases in the world of extreme music has undoubtedly been Nightmare Logic, the 2nd full-length release from Dallas crossover thrashers Power Trip. Since their Southern Lord debut Manifest Decimation on the Southern Lord label, Power Trip has made a name for themselves with relentless […]

Capable of Anything: Ben Folds & the KC Symphony live 03/11/17

Just sticking a symphony with a performer doesn’t always yield the best results. For every “The Wall: Live in Berlin” from Roger Waters and “Concerto for Group and Orchestra” by Deep Purple – albums that deeply incorporate symphonic elements without overpowering the original music – there’s “S&M” from Metallica or some god-awful Kiss symphonic mess […]

From Chaos They Came: Inquisition live in Kansas City 01/26/17

Extreme metal has always been a violent genre of music since its inception, but some bands take it to the limit. Two-piece occult black metallers Inquisition, on an off-date from their tour supporting the legendary Norwegian black metal group Mayhem, hopped on a diverse bill at the Riot Room on Thursday night and what followed […]
