THE BURNING PEPPERMINTS / DRESSY BESSY / PSYCHIC HEAT @ recordBar! I like to describe Dressy Bessy’s music as crunchy, fun pop. I just love this little band. If you want to learn more about them check out their allmusic.com page. I don’t know the other two bands but I suppose I will after this […]

Jenny Lewis’ voice is a personal favorite. I typically have music playing most of the time. I like Google Play Music’s radio station approach and Rilo Kiley Radio – a Jenny Lewis project – is a favorite. Most of her projects get ear-time on this “radio station” along with other similar and favorite artists. Her […]

moe. is back on tour! It is EXTREMELY important that I see them this time. Their first set at Summer Camp 2017 got washed out and that entire festival ended up being a huge disappointment. In fact, the Summer Camp 2017 experience was so poor it soured me on the festival entirely and I don’t […]

Leo Kottke @ Liberty Hall – this is about as good as it gets! He’s the greatest steel-string guitarist and Liberty Hall is about the perfect venue for him. Here are the Liberty Hall details. You can also buy tickets through our “friends” at Ticketmaster. If you’ve never seen Leo Kottke live buy your tickets […]

Neko Case is touring in support of her new album (is it still OK to use the term “album”?) Hell-On. She’ll be at one of our favorite venues – The Uptown Theater. I get pretty excited about the artists I follow and Neko Case is no exception. Join us… I dare you! As usual, my […]

Touring in support of their new album, The Cactus Blossoms will stop by Knuckleheads to share the new tunes with everyone. I saw these guys as the opener for Jenny Lewis last year at The Truman and really enjoyed their sound. These guys may be The Everly Brothers reincarnated (no chop-busting about Don still being […]

Please join me for one of the best acts ever – The New Pornographers.  If you haven’t seen them live seize this opportunity. They are as awesome live as they are on their studio albums. This is some top-shelf music created by some of the best musicians around. Please note – I’ve lost my objectivity […]

Bob Mould isn’t coming to Kansas City this year. The closest he’s getting is Iowa City, IA of St. Louis, MO. I’m choosing the St. Louis show because its about 100 miles closer. Why would an otherwise sane person travel 260 miles to see a solo show? Because its Bob Mould! The last time I […]

This is one of my absolute favorite bands and I’m so glad they’re not playing at that venue they used to play every year! They are always great live with jamtastic versions of their own material along with some fun and challenging covers. They will not disappoint! Umphrey’s McGee Bio @ allmusic.com Read More & […]
