This Mortal Coil: Carcass Live in Lawrence, KS 07/17/16

Just under two years since they last played the Granada in Lawrence, UK goregrind pioneers Carcass returned to the scene of the crime Sunday night to kick off their latest tour, bringing along yet another stellar group of extreme metal bands to thoroughly put the Kansas crowd through the meat grinder. Opening the show was […]

Death Walking Terror: Cannibal Corpse Live in Lawrence, KS 02/25/16

The only things guaranteed in life seem to be death, taxes and solid performances from Florida death metal bands. Seminal extreme music group Cannibal Corpse, no stranger to the area, led a bill stuffed full of death metal to a near-capacity crowd at the Granada in Lawrence on Thursday night. One of America’s longest-running death […]


Massive Cauldron of Chaos: 1349 Live in Kansas City, MO 1/21/2016

From the frozen depths of Norway, veteran black metal group 1349 made a triumphant return to the similarly snow-covered Kansas City on Thursday night and brought as much Satanic riffing and blasphemous blastbeats as they could. Formed in 1997, 1349 has been pretty much a mainstay in the black metal scene since the release of […]

Sentenced To Life: Black Breath live in Lawrence, KS 07/13/15

Southern Lord, the music label responsible for crushing doom and sludged-out drone metal, started signing a plethora of quality hardcore bands a few years ago. Seemingly out of the blue, but the results have been nothing but fantastic. Easily the best pickup of the label in this time has been Seattle’s Black Breath. With their […]


Live Tonight: Week of July 6th – July 12th: We Can Go Back To Not Liking Soccer Now!

USA! USA! USA! The US women have won the World Cup! So can we please stop pretending we like soccer until the next time it becomes relevant? Like, I totally get that Kansas City is a great sports town (and our MLS team isn’t half bad) but damn. Luckily, while the World Cup fever is […]

Father John1

Father John Misty and King Tuff at the Granada

I’ll admit that I originally bought the ticket for this show strictly for King Tuff—yeah, I knew of Father John Misty, and heard his newest album was expected to be one of the best of the year, but I’d never really given him a full listen. King Tuff, on the other hand, put out one […]

Pop Punk’s Return To Life: New Found Glory live in Lawrence, KS 03/17/15

In their 18th year as a group, fresh off the release of “Resurrection,” their eighth full-length album and for the first time as a four-piece, seminal pop punk kings New Found Glory showed a passionate and rowdy St. Patrick’s Day crowd at The Granada in Lawrence that pop punk’s not dead and it’s made a […]

Suffer The Children – Napalm Death live in Lawrence, KS 02/26/15

There aren’t very many bands like Napalm Death left in the world. Going into their 34th year as a band, the UK group has left permanent marks on the formation of grindcore, death metal and extreme music as a whole. Their constant touring over the least 30 years has all but made them a household […]
