So here’s what you looked like on Saturday. And also here’s how the Casket Lottery looked…had to be here to hear how they sounded. Thanks to Zach Bauman for the photos!
You know Red Kate. You love Red Kate. You will go see Red Kate. For those out of the know, Red Kate is one of Kansas City’s best live bands. Blending punk and rock and roll (what more do you need?) with a swift dose of politically charged lyrics, Red Kate is like a kick […]
Kansas City has their own Black Sabbath and they’re named Inner Altar. While Inner Altar has only existed as a band for a few years, the impact they’ve made on the local heavy metal scene is immeasurable. Combining the heaviness and psychedelic groove of early Saint Vitus and the aforementioned Black Sabbath with the riffs […]
If you were lucky enough to catch Aprilmist alongside Young Bull and Vivid Zebra at our place around this time last year, you’re well aware of just how promising a group they were. Combining elements of atmospheric black metal with a more modern take on the sound incorporating elements of progressive metal, shoegaze and post-metal, […]
Weezer’s eleventh studio album Pacific Daydream is out today.

Shuttlecock Music Magazine is quickly becoming the best place to find news, reviews and musings on the Kansas City underground (and aboveground – sometimes) music scene. Shuttlecock’s 4th Showcase is yet another eclectic pairing of grooves, jams and slams. First up is Solomon, a KC-based rapper guaranteed to kick the show off with high energy. […]
