The Show Report, 6/26: For James

June 26, 2009

Tonight many music-scene veterans will converge on Nathan P. Murphy’s for a show to support one of their own. James Davis, son of MK Ultra gutarist Kevin Flannery, died recently, and tonight The Murph Dome puts on a monster concert in his honor with Plasticity Switch, Pillbox, About Time, Allie Catz, Ilijah and Tokyo Sauna. It’s a big night for the acts involved–hell, Allie Catz reunited just for this show–and, hopefully, a moment of solace for the grief-stricken parents. All proceeds go toward the James Davis Foundation, so come out in droves and enjoy a good show to help out a family wanting to give its son the sendoff he deserves.

Elsewhere around town you’ll find the following:

The Show Report, 5/8: Word to your moms. This weekend came to drop bombs.

May 8, 2009

tn_strangelove 03

This week has already been absolutely absurd. We’ve already had SOJA and Girl Talk in Springfield, and now the weekend arrives with more concerts than one person can possibly take in. Your local clubs, concert promoters, radio stations and onstage talents are out to blow your mind these next two days, and they’re bringing the big, mean warheads to do it. The only thing missing is Slim Pickens riding them on the way down. It’s a preponderance of shows so enormous our own Scott P. has coined the phrase “South By Southwest Missouri” in its honor. Call it SXSWMO for short. Your latest installment of shows awaits you after the break.

(Down)Homegrown: Chance Ray Band and Brian Lumley & Red Dirt Underground this Friday

April 14, 2009

homegrownWe’re not sure how or why, but Q102’s Homegrown shows have a way of sneaking up on us. Has it really been a month since Superstring Theory, Assembly Line Gods and Knife*Death at The High Life Live Martini Lounge? It certainly has, and the next installment is upon us. This time, Q’s feeling a little bit country: The Chance Ray Band and Brian Lumley & Red Dirt Underground descend upon Lindberg’s this Friday (April 17) to give local country and roots rock a little extra push into the public consciousness. It doesn’t need a big push, given the proliferation of Red Dirt shows at the Ballroom and Remmingtons Downtown, to say nothing of emerging local roots acts such as The Cropdusters, Bottlefish and The Bootheel. It just needs the attention of local radio, and Friday it’s getting it. The show costs $5 and should start around 10 p.m.

Ready for more Homegrown? March 28 w/Super String Theory, Assembly Line Gods, Knife*Death

March 24, 2009

homegrownQ102 is on a roll. The last Homegrown concert with Levee, Berlin Drop and Bender drew a raucous crowd to Nathan P. Murphy’s to rock out like it was 1976. To keep the momentum going, the station is taking its monthly rock show in another direction: free-range prog rock. Let’s get experimental, shall we? Super String Theory headlines this month’s edition of Homegrown, along with metal up-and-comers Assembly Line Gods and the barely controlled madness known as Knife*Death. They’ll all pile into the Outland Ballroom High Life Live Martini Lounge Saturday night (March 28) under the sweet lighting and audio system. Trip-the-light fantastic? Quite possibly.

Q102 Homegrown goes classic rock: Levee, Bender, Berlin Drop and Armada @ Nathan P. Murphy’s 2/28

February 18, 2009

homegrownQ102’s Homegrown concert series is finally resurrected, and it’s wasting no time in bringing a show that will knock you back a few decades. Retro-rock powerhouse Levee, back from the dead itself, will headline only the second show of its comeback Saturday, February 28 at Nathan P. Murphy’s. Accompanying them are Bender, one of the scene’s most talented and broad-ranging cover bands that is–get this–also working on originals now; Berlin Drop, a group that tips its hat to the bluesy psychadelic rock of the early ’70s; and Armada. Q102 will be on-hand the night of the show with live remotes and to introduce a true old-school balls-out rawk show at one of the city’s historic clubs. Tickets are $8 ($10 for minors) and the show will begin at 8 p.m. When you wake up Sunday morning, it will be 2009 again. Promise. But we can’t guarantee you won’t have a hangover from the ride.

It’s Official: Q102 Homegrown Returns December 6

November 8, 2008

homegrownWelcome back to the way we were. Q102.1‘s lauded Homegrown concert series brought legions of music fans to the station’s well-promoted-yet-oh-so-cheap shows, paying little more than a dollar to see the live-music party of the week. It all comes rushing back to life November 21 December 6 at the High Life and the Outland.

Hold the phone, DeRosh. What’s with the line-through-the-text thing? Didn’t you give the full lineup before?

Sure did. Get the full breakdown after the clickthrough.
