Leggy, T-Rextasy, Westeners @ Replay Lounge

Tomorrow night, Replay Lounge will host three bands that collide pop, indie, punk, and garage to make music that absolutely rips. Leggy and T-Rextasy will be joined Lawrence’s own Westerners for what guarantees to be the best way to start the week. While all the bands use similar threads to create their music, the way […]

The Philistines Album Release @ Replay Lounge

In case you missed it, The Philistines put out their debut on The Record Machine about a month ago. The TL;DR of it is┬áThe Backbone of The Night rocks. Layering classic tube-warmed psych-tones with slick indie pop hooks, the album unfurls equally as a meandering jam and a collection of tunes that stay stuck in […]

Gnarly Davidson, The Sluts, Young Bull Tour Kick Off

This Saturday, all the heavy will be located at The Replay Lounge. Gnarly Davidson, The Sluts, and Young Bull will kick off their tour with a night of distortion thickened guitars and unrelenting percussion. While each band occupies a different area in the heavy spectrum–from bluesy hooks, to classic metal, to stoner riffage–, they all […]

My Gold Mask, FEE LION, & La Guerre @ Replay

This Saturday at The Replay Lounge, La Guerre, FEE LION, and My Gold Mask will put on a fantastic show. Whether you’re a fan of stripped down electronic pop, slick indie pop, or anthemic dark pop, this show will have something for you. Plus, each act puts on a stage show that is not to […]

Momma’s Boy and Scruffy & The Janitors @ Replay

Some of my favorite shows ram together aesthetics. The harmonies and dissonances between bands on eclectic shows do well to spark connection. In a sense, the disparity between genres helps to define and blur their lines simultaneously–a necessary thing for any art to do. This Thursday at Replay Lounge, one of those shows is taking […]

Eyes of Iolite, Hossferatu, and Inner Alter @ Replay

I’ve written before how diverse and great Kansas City’s heavy scene is. Specifically about Ignis Gratis’ shoegazy, heavy punk and Hossferatu‘s blues influenced stoner metal. As phenomenal as it is listening to some of the heaviest bands on wax, it is even more gratifying to see those bands pour out their aural doom from the […]

Ebony Tusks and Netherfriends @ Replay

Ebony Tusks is a force when the trio takes the stage. The way the three dudes spin out their grimy, industrial beats and heavy-hitting lyrics makes their shows visceral and raw. Likewise, Netherfriends can command a stage like no other. The Chicago based musician combines the neo-hippie vibe of Mac Demarco while delving into something […]

New Year’s Eve Concerts Part III

I’ve been chronicling my top New Year’s Eve Concerts (here and here). The third (and final) concert that is causing me to make some tough decisions is happening in Lawrence. The show features rock n roll wizards Gnarly Davidson, punk weirdos The Fog, experimental cyborgs Arc Flash, and spacey funk-master Approach. In short, The Replay […]

Red Kate and Vedettes @ Replay Lounge

Friday the 13th had an epic reputation. From bad luck to dark magic, the day, nay the phenomenon, has lived in a type of infamy. This iteration of it, however, will be a little less unlucky and a bit more magical. That said, this Friday will be every bit as pummeling as its name portends–especially […]

Psychic Heat, Arc Flash, Phantom Head and Wides @ Replay

Tomorrow at Replay Lounge, Wides, Phantom Head, Arc Flash, and Psychic Heat will take the stage. Moving from the grimiest end of the psych spectrum to the poppiest, the bands will offer a sound for everyone and a live show that is as heated as their songs. The Thursday show will truly be something never […]

From indie pop to classic rock to doom metal and everything in between, there will be no shortage of great live music to dance to this Saturday. Joining the many great concerts, The Bottleneck is curating one hell […]

Whether you’re into indie pop, garage rock, metal, country, or anywhere in between, there’s a concert happening this Halloween for you. Each venue from Kansas City to Lawrence is putting together some fantastic shows, and Riot Room is no exception. Its Halloween bash will feature some uber-heavy bands whose music might actually summon Satan this […]
