Halloween Gets Strange @ Mills Record Company

When Halloween falls on a Monday, it’s both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, the day itself gets short changed when it comes to trick or treating and adult guising and mumming. But on the other hand, the celebrations last all weekend. We’ve put out a show calendar leading up to Halloween. […]

Royalphonic, Fire Dog, and Ayllu @ The Brick

This Friday, The Brick will host local soul jazz wanders Royalphonic, St. Louis pop rockers Fire Dog, and Kansas City’s own Latino traditionalists Ayllu. While each band occupies a different aesthetic space, they all find the sweet spot of technical proficiency and sloppy passion. These two elements come together in all three acts to make […]


BLK FLANL Plays Their Latest In Store

BLK FLANL is, without a doubt, one of the most exciting acts in Kansas City right now. Featuring Barrel Maker and Conductor Williams, the duo boasts some of the most intense flows and the lushiest beats I’ve heard in a minute. The first time I heard the duo was on The Record Machine’s compilation, How to […]

This Friday, Mills Record Company will be hosting an evening that straddles the line between experimentalism and at pop. The in store will feature Metatone and the duo Shawn E. Hansen and Sam Jones.

Dwight Twilley Poster

Dwight Twilley To Enchant Mills Record Company on June 3rd

Dwight Twilley may in fact be the non-fictional version of Jareth. And I mean that in the best way possible. His latest release, Always, is full of moody pop-rock. His instrumentals are hazy and gestural–giving their listener just enough to hook them into their next riff. His lyrics paint surreal situations with an ease that is enviable. Always, […]


Admiral of the Red and The Thunderclaps @ Mills Record Company

This Friday, Mills Record Company will continue their in store concert series with two grooving bands: Admiral of the Red and The Thunderclaps. Both bands feature chunky guitar riffs that bop along like surf anthems without losing the harder edge of straight-forward rock ‘n roll. Combining the two together will send this in store back […]
