Recently, LA band Them Howling Bones was in town on a short tour with support from locals Rev Gusto and Nicholas Saint James. We caught the Rev Gusto set and Them Howling Bones. Them Howling Bones was great. Loud, fuzzy, garage rock complete with retro style and sound made for a great set. We’ve got audio of the entire set for your listening pleasure. Rev Gusto was also performing with a new slimmed-down lineup. Check it out:
Here’s a few images from the last Electric Lungs show at Harling’s with Nuthatch 47. The Electric Lungs just finished up recording a new album but a release date hasn’t been set. There’s audio of their entire sets at these links: Electric Lungs Set and Nuthatch 47 Set
Back on February 27, Not a Planet headlined a show with Florida duo Teach Me Equals and KC’s own Aussie led rock group Kangaroo Knife Fight. This was Not a Planet‘s final show before heading out on a southeastern US tour on their way to SXSW in Austin, TX. Not a Planet debuted several new tunes at the show and we got a couple of them for your listening pleasure if you follow the links below.
Teach Me Equals was also an interesting duo in that their instrumentation consisted of a cellist, and female vocalist who played violin and guitar. Their sound was rounded out with a drum track. It was pretty interesting.
We managed to get down to the opening night of the Folk Alliance Conference, dubbed “Planet Folk” at Westin Crown Center and Sheraton Hotels 2015 edition. We’ve got audio tracks and images from the event. There was a great turnout with many rooms full of musicians, music lovers and folk fanatics from all over the world in town to see everything we can bring to a music party. It was a good showing KC!
The sheer volume of musicians and music acts from around the world performing showcases throughout the hotels, impromptu jam sessions and meetings were simply staggering. Just trying to get a handle on everything that was happening at any given time was mind-boggling. I hope next year the day gig will be a little less crazy so I can spend more time down there. Looking forward to the next time Planet Folk’s orbit crosses KC next February.
