‘WEIRD AL’ YANKOVIC - KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI 2018 - Starburst Magazine

When comedic musician and king parodist of our time ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic announced that he would be undertaking a tour wherein he dropped the costumes and video screens to concentrate on a stripped-down musical experience, it seemed like a radical idea. When Yankovic explained that the tour would focus primarily on older material – and … Continued

LKxRR showcase review in the Pitch

young_bull.5867cbcd2f31e
Last night's LKxRR show at the Granada, organized by Treet Ward of Lawrence's Young Bull, ably demonstrated that a solid bill can pull a hundred people out on a holiday weekend. The show was stacked top-to-bottom with the finest heavy music the Lawrence and Kansas City areas have to offer, and there was no finer way to starting kicking 2016 out the door than with a big, metal boot.

Live Review of Def Leppard / REO Speedwagon / Tesla at the Pitch

def-leppard-01
While the weather was turning downtown into a veritable series of waterfalls and small rivers last night, the inside of the Sprint Center was high ‘n’ dry. Sorry. But for the repeated flood warnings blowing up everyone’s phones, no one would have given a thought to the weather outside, because Def Leppard’s performance would’ve kept everyone fascinated, even if a tornado were attempting to destroy downtown. Despite some weird vocal quirks that saw the band sometimes sounding as if they were playing instrumentals, the English pop-metal band’s sound was robust and strong, thanks to a strong guitar work from Phil Collen and Vivian Campbell.

Heart / Joan Jett / Cheap Trick concert review at the Pitch

20160815 heart 02
Three bands, all Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame inductees of recent vintage, and of the rare talent undamaged by the ravages of time. Despite necessary reductions in range, last night's triple bill proved that there's at least three acts that can still kick it after three decades or more. Of the three, Heart might as well have stepped out of a time warp. While Ann Wilson said "times have changed," one would never know it from her band's performance. They might as well have come straight from recording "These Dreams" -- although, I'm pretty certain the original wasn't played with mandolin on lead as it was at Starlight, as nice a touch as it was.

Mills Record Co. feature at the Pitch

Music_MillsCREDITZachBauman.578e7b08eee37
Mills Record Co. feels like a Westport institution, even though the shop first opened next to Dave’s Stagecoach in May 2013. Less than a year and a half later, the shop expanded into a former vape store next door, doubling its size. Now, a couple of months after its third anniversary, Mills has moved into a much bigger space, around the corner at 4045 Broadway, the former home of Westport on Broadway Antiques.
