Lawrence Field Day Fest: Night Two

In any city you go to, the people of that city claim to have the best music scene in the country. So, when I first started going to shows in Lawrence, I was inevitably surrounded by LFK residents saying things like, “You’ll never find a music scene as wonderful as this one.” In one ear […]

Middle of the Map Fest (Friday Night) Review

Fellow Kansas Citians, consider Friday night at the well-curated Middle of the Map Fest to be revenge straight from 1985, a night when denizens of Missouri’s other major-city came into town and took the 816 by storm.

MOTM 2014 Artist Preview: Jorge Arana Trio

One of the first things you’re likely to notice when listening to KC experimental-jazz/rock group the Jorge Arana Trio is their laconic songcraft.

Bears and Company Release Video for Carroll A. Deering

Just two days ago, Kansas City’s sweetheart indie band released an acoustic video for their track Carroll A. Deering. The band, recently home from touring Japan and just off of a west coast tour, made a pit stop at Lake Tahoe to shoot this video. It’s subtle, it’s simple, it’s just really good. Bears and […]
