May is going to be an unbelievable month for Under The Radar, as John Todd has not one, but FOUR amazing local rock bands who have some pretty amazing stuff coming up in time for summer. This week features local band The Clementines, who are releasing their latest CD, Someday/Over, on May 9th at the Voodoo Lounge.
From the band’s Facebook page–
The Clementines began as an acoustic duo in March of 2011. They immediately jumped into songwriting, constructing heartfelt songs of an alternative rock & blues persuasion, with the occasional touch of jazz, folk, and pop. After a year of performing nearly every venue in the Kansas City area, as well as Columbia and Lawrence, KS, and receiving great critical praise from a variety of music reviewers, The Clementines decided to add to their sound. They expanded into a 4 piece group, adding a rocking new rhythm section to the mix. Now, just over a year later, The Clementines are finishing up a full length self titled album, booking gigs all over KC, and moving people with their music. The best has yet to come from these passionate musicians.
