This third installment, entitled “Shine A Light,” will deviate from the formula the initial KC Uncovered shows have followed. In those cases, bands would draw a CD from a hat and then have a month to learn another local act’s songs. The first KC Uncovered was May 22, 2010 (also at the recordBar), and featured the likes of American Catastrophe covering Federation of Horsepower, and Federation of Horsepower covering Bleach Bloodz, and so on.
The particular reason for “Shine A Light” is to celebrate the music of the late Abigail Henderson, who passed away from cancer on August 27. Henderson, in addition to her work as musician, was the co-founder of the Midwest Music Association, which raised money to help provide musicians with access to health care.
