Local Week: Chris Hazelton’s Boogaloo 7

Three things come to mind when thinking of Kansas City: barbeque, fountains, and jazz. This triangulation of the senses makes the city we call home precisely that, home. And Kansas City’s jazz tradition shows no sign of slowing down. Chris Hazelton’s Boogaloo 7 proves the jazz scene is alive and well with their live album, Soul […]

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 […]

Tandem and Mangosteen In Store

This Friday Mills Record Company will turn the lights down low and let the smooth stylings of Mangosteen and Tandem. While each band occupies different aesthetic spheres, there is one continuity: a hint of jazz that is slinky enough to get the stiffest fan to groove along with their songs. Tandem will heat you up, […]

Fullbloods, Beat Bums, Youth Pool @ The Brick

This Saturday, Fullbloods, Youth Pool, and Beat Bums will play The Brick. Each band strikes a different chord aesthetically, and together they represent a good smattering of indie rock. Fullbloods’ surfy pop is catchy and laid back; Youth Pool envelopes their listeners in waves of sound; Beat Bums collide sounds to create something totally unclassifiable. […]

Lucky for us, The Good Hearts and Abandoned Bells will spread that warmth to us all this Saturday at Mills Record Company. The two bands split the difference between the swampy murk of the […]
