Jackson May’s Top Ten Shows of 2016

  Kansas City and Lawrence only seem to grow in terms of how many quality shows a year we get, and 2016 was no exception. These are my picks for greatest shows/performances in the KC area for 2016. NOTE 1: I like mostly heavy music, so don’t go into this expecting to see 96.5 The […]


Shock Me: Baroness Live in Lawrence 08/25/16

It must be fate – severe thunderstorms and torrential downpours hit Lawrence, absolutely soaking the line formed outside the Granada waiting for the Baroness show. Inclement weather on a weekday is enough to turn away most prospective attendees from a show, but Baroness (and Pallbearer) resonate deeply with so many people that despite the elements, […]

Top 10 Albums Of 2015: Jackson May’s Picks

HONORABLE MENTION #1 Baroness – Purple A big step up in overall quality from Green & Yellow and on the same level (maybe even a smidge better?) than the Blue Album. Purple is Baroness at their heaviest, yet most melodic. Opening track “Morningstar” and “Kerosene” sound like their best Mastodon impression, while “Try To Disappear” […]


Top Ten Performances Of 2015: Jackson May’s Picks

  Honorable Mention #1 WAYFARER 05/31 – Riot Room in Kansas City, MO These guys are so awesome. A really great, young atmospheric black metal group – like Agalloch but way cooler. I saw them at the amazing KC Blackdeath Fest​ and knew I needed to see them again ASAP, and luckily they played on […]


Stuff a Stocking with a 7″

There are only three days left until Christmas, and if you still have a name on your gift list, you might be getting a little nervous. Not to worry, 7″ are the perfect stocking stuffer–and you can mix and match if you’re unsure what music your hard-to-shop-for loved ones listen to. And if none of the below […]


Baroness’ Purple Burns Like Milk and Gasoline

Not even catastrophe could stop Baroness‘ rock. A traumatic bus crash in 2012 saw the departure of two founding members and facilitated the band’s frontman, John Baizley, to reevaluate life. While almost four years ago, the crash looms just under the surface of the band’s latest album, Purple,–the first since the accident. Purple stays consistent with the band’s […]

Baroness at the Granada

In the past year, Baroness have gone through things that would rip most bands apart. They released the double album Yellow & Green last summer that was initially met with divisiveness. Shortly after, the band was involved in a horrendous bus accident — similar in destruction to the fatal crashes involving Metallica and Decapitated that […]
