Record Store Day has come and gone, and while there are still some exclusives gracing the racks of your favorite local record joint, the Kansas City music train will not stop. Jumping from wax to stage, the next event on the horizon is Middle of the Map. The festival announced its line up almost two […]
Middle of The Map is next week. The three day festival turns the entire city into a veritable music factory. From Thursday night to Saturday night, national and local acts share stages across Kansas City–which, coincidentally, makes for a perfect weekend of discovering new favorite bands and venues and bars. The line up for Middle […]
So Record Store Day is only a few days away. I’ve written about some of the amazing exclusive releases you’ll find at Mills Record Company (too many to list; just type “record store day” in the blog’s search bar), but I want to focus on something just as good as limited edition pressings: live music. […]
This Friday at recordBar, Second Hand King will debut cuts from his forthcoming album, FRANKIE. From what has been posted, FRANKIE will move in a different direction than Second Hand King’s second album, Almost Blue. Whereas Almost Blue brooded and coiled around its melancholy, this album bounces lighter and more upbeat (even when it focuses on the less savoury […]
Wednesdays can be the worst–the past weekend is a phantom memory and the next weekend is still very nebulous. But this Wednesday will not be one of those thanks to Big Jesus, Existem, LAZAR WOLF, and No Place. These four bands will take Riot Room’s stage for a show that will rock the mid-week into […]
In case you missed it, the line-up for Middle of The Map 2017 was announced last night. The three day festival features over 100 bands (national and local) in venues all over the city for an event that is THE music fest in not Kansas City but also the Midwest. And this year, Middle of […]
Tito’s Sound Machine is at it again. This Friday at recordBar, Valley Hush, Erica Joy, Dylan Guthrie, and Modern Friend will take the stage for a night of electronic (ish) pop and stunning performances–seriously, if you’ve seen any one of these bands play, then you know just what I mean. It’s basically spring, so let these […]
I don’t think there’s a better time for folk music than the early Spring. Something about the combination of fallen leaves and budding branches, the temperature fluctuations, the electricity of it all lends itself to banjos, acoustic guitars, and stunning melodies. And this Saturday, Mills Record Company will turn into a hotbed for folk music. […]
Sat. Feb 24th we welcome Atlas to the Mills stage for a stripped down set. Show starts with opening acts Andrew James & Aaron Hale. Music starts at 6 pm!
Temples, an English four piece indie rock band, will be doing a live performance in celebration of their upcoming album “Volcano” out in the US via Fat Possum Records (released March 3). Entrance is guarenteed with pre-order purchase of the new cotton candy pink indie vinyl LP or CD, in store only. Your favorite band performing in […]
Without P.O.S., there wouldn’t be Death Grips or Clipping or anything on Anticon. The Minneapolis native is able to charge a line with such an intensity that even the most mundane sentiments, when spilling from his mouth, have a punch few MCs can match. Joining P.O.S. on stage will be Ceschi Ramos, who splices lightning […]
