Middle of The Map: The Riot Room

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 […]

Record Store Day: Live Music and More

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. […]

Record Store Day: Books, Bangerz, and Babylon

Record Store Day is basically two weeks away. For vinyl collectors everywhere, it’s a day to catch exclusive releases of past and future favorites. For those new to vinyl, it’s a day to meet other audiophiles and to catch some really great wax. Mills Record Company does the day up every year. With refreshments, fresh […]

Second Hand King to Reveal FRANKIE @ recordBAR

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 […]

Big Jesus, Existem, LAZAR WOLF, & No Place @ Riot Room

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 […]

Hyborian’s Release Party

The Company is killing it. Though young, the Kansas City record label is putting out some of the heaviest releases. From Gnarly Davidson‘s The Tape to Keef Mountain‘s self-titled debut, there seems to be no end to the punishing riffage coming from this label. And 2017 seems to promise more gold. Just a couple weeks after Curse […]

Valley Hush, Erica Joy, Dylan Guthrie, Modern Friend @ recordBar

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 […]

The Ovaries-eez, Teri Quinn, and Calvin Arsenia @ Mills Record Company

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. […]

P.O.S. and Ceschi @ Riot Room

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 […]

Sahavannes, False Brother, Justinxshon, Dead Dads Club @ Mills Record Company

Featuring Sahvannes, False Brother, Justinxshon, and Dead Dads Club, the in store will bring together pop, post-punk, beats, and rap for an eclectic night of great music. Dead Dads Club […]

This Friday, Too Much Rock will continue its 7″ series with Witch Jail’s debut on wax, Slimewave USA. To celebrate, Witch Jail will take the stage at Mills Record Company, joined by Shortsweather, for a night of danceable punk and distortion-rich dreampop. Is there a better way to kick off the weekend before Valentine’s Day (or any […]
