Black Friday With Mike Doughty

The weather’s getting cooler, the leaves are falling, large men are smashing into other large men for large sums of money. So that can only mean one thing: Thanksgiving and the holiday season are almost upon us. And after we stuff ourselves with turkey/tofurkey, we can fight the masses for deals on Black Friday. At Mills […]

The Body, Tongues, and Faultfinder Live!

Kansas City will not slow down when it comes to live music. Coming off the smorgasbord of indie that was Middle of The Map, the city is shifting things to a heavier place. The next few days will be full of concerts that showcase Kansas City’s doom/noise/metal scene. Whether it’s 34 and friends on the […]

MOTM - Psychic Heat - 4

The First Two Nights of Middle of The Map

So Middle of The Map has begun. Mills Record Company started the music portion of the multifaceted fest with Be/Non, Jorge Arana Trio, and Monta at Odds on Wednesday and kept the party going with Psychic Heat, The Conquerors, and Shy Boys last night.      But Middle of The Map spilled all through the […]

Gallant’s Ology is Something to Ogle

Part of the perks of writing reviews is the recommendations people give you. A few weeks ago, Barrel Maker, of BLKFLANL, recommended I check out Gallant. And since then, I can’t get his music out of my head. Gallant, who will be performing at Middle of the Map, has all the shimmering falsetto beauty of […]

Record Store Day Cometh Part III

Earlier this week, I previewed some of the heavier bands that will be playing Record Store Day. Continuing this series, I’d like to focus on the poppier bands that will take the stage, the bands who write vocal hook after vocal hook without seemingly breaking a sweat, the bands whose music is at home blaring […]

Record Store Day Cometh Part II

Last week, I started a series that will highlight the bands who will be playing in Mills Record Company’s new space on Record Store Day (4/16). The musicians in that post were on the lighter end of the sonic spectrum. But heavy fans need not worry–there will be enough distortion-fueled guitar riffs and pummeling drum […]
