  • WANTED: KC/Lawrence (& more) Music

    8 Jan 2013, 01:39 by thisisahiijack

    1. This is an ever-growing list of bands and albums I am searching for. Much like the 'haves' journal, not all of these artists are current residents of the area, but all of them have called the region home at one time or another.
    2. This list will never be completely up-to-date, as there are so many musicians that have come out of the area and have released albums with multiple bands. I've also chalked it up to a near-impossibility that I will ever get all of these, but I can try.
    3. I'm open for almost all types of music. If you have something you may not see here, don't let that keep you from speaking up about it. The only types of music I make a general rule not to track down are those who lean more towards a sound of rap rock/nu-metal (downthesun, 8 degrees, Canvas), bar band/classic rock/hair metal/general guitar wankery (Puddle of Mudd fits into the bar band category, the others I don't care to list examples for), or bad rap (Tech N9ne, countless others).

    1. This is a journal containing bands and albums I have recordings from on my computer. Though I try to support local music as best as I can by attending shows and buying albums, not all of this music I am in direct physical possession of through purchase.
    2. Not all of the bands below are directly from the KC/Lawrence area. Other cities and towns I keep in this collection are Topeka, KS, Columbia, MO, Wichita, KS, Warrensburg, MO, Manhattan, KS, and a few other, more rural areas of the region. Essentially, it contains everything east of and including Wichita in Kansas, and everything west of and including Columbia in Missouri.
    3. In addition to the previous point, you will notice that not all of the bands here are current residents of the region. Many bands (Mates of State, White Rabbits, etc.) unfortunately decided to move away to a larger metro area. Others (The Appleseed Cast, Namelessnumberheadman), were started in different regions and then relocated here at some point, usually early in their career. …

    Fri 4 Jan – Locrian, I Love You

    It isn't much to complain about but it is something, and there is the ugly fact that in many ways we should have known. MPshows in Chicago is a sorry amalgam of half-assed booking who change the price (from $6 to $7) at the last minute, add acts to the bill that in no way fit, are notorious for having no one in charge at the venues(not to mention the person you've been corresponding with), and making it a miracle that at a well attended show the bands maybe get some $$$.

    Despite all of those things occurring, except everyone got paid something - more importantly the touring band I Love You - the show went very well. It started off, unfortunately, with our pals MIDSTS a duo who played 2 songs in 20 minutes. Men after our own hearts, nearing the post-rock but thankfully straying into more abstract and intense territory. A drummer, and a guitarist armed with some Moog Taurus pedals who can build a frothy mixture of equal parts Mogwai and M83 sans vocals.
