Live Tonight: Week of June 6th – June 12th: Happy International Day of Slayer!

June 6th every year, as everyone knows, is International Slayer Day. It’s a joyous, festive celebration of all things Slayer, including (but not limited to) blaring Slayer albums as loud as possible for 24 straight hours, carving Slayer’s logo into any surface you can find and generally just being as awesome as possible.

Ranging from pared down minimal bands to full orchestras, the albums definitely highlight the exciting and ever-improving nature of music in Kansas City. Josh Berwanger bobs through his music like a 90s influences Bruce Springsteen. Sometimes endearing, sometimes erratic, […]


“Life Is Peachy”- Shy Boys

Kansas City surf rockers/psych poppers Shy Boys ostensibly love two things over everything else: a blissful jangle and burying emotions. Their stellar self-titled debut from January of this year frequently blended the two into a melancholic, but masterful swirl. You could hear that lead singer Collin Rausch was aching in a track like “And I […]

The video itself depicts the celestial dance of a woman headbanging in slow motion. Over […]
