Live Tonight: Week of March 28th – April 3rd: Play Ball!

The only college basketball team around these parts (or it at least seems this way), the Kansas Jayhawks, had an unfortunate early exit from the NCAA tournament on Saturday. Sad face. But look on the bright side – this frees up time to go see some amazing shows! Just don’t forget to make it out […]


Weedeater’s Goliathan is Heavy

I can’t think of a better name for Weedeater‘s latest album. Goliathan is adjectival form of Goliath, yes, but there’s a bit of portmanteau hiding in the word. When I first saw Goliathan, I thought Goliath + Leviathan. And after listening to the album, it didn’t seem so far fetched to combine these words. Weedeater’s […]

God Luck And Good Speed: Weedeater Live in Kansas City 04/07/15

“It’s good to be back in Misery,” enigmatic Weedeater bassist/frontman Dixie Dave Collins said through a cloud of ringing feedback, “I never left.” Weedeater is a band that is so loud, it messes with your equilibrium.

Earth: Primitive and Deadly Review

Earth‘s stony drone came on the scene in the late 80s and early 90s–pioneering the beginnings of drone-metal. Since the band’s formation, they’ve put out a steady stream of albums, all of which incorporate looping, minimal structures and distorted sustained chords. Their latest, Primitive And Deadly, is no different. The record creates heavier than air […]

New and Local: Dream Ritual’s Debut EP

Dream Ritual‘s self-titled debut harkens back to a time when guitars were heavy and vocals slurred, when a palm mutes and spacey solos coexisted in the same song, when rock moved from arenas to basements. The six song EP is a mix of stoner-sludge and technically proficient noodling. The band’s sound stays centered around a […]
