The Show Report, 7/18: MAYLENE!!!

July 18, 2009

Talk about shows…boy do we have a lineup tonight! You know, it used to be that in the middle of summer, there were maybe a small handfull of single shows worth catching over the entire summer. That is obviously no longer the case. As we keep trying to work in float trips and weekend escapes to go see some Cards or Royals games…we look at the lineups each weekend and are blown away as we once again cancel our plans and look forward to another night of amazing shows.

Tonight you get some of the best names in rock, metal, blues, and indie. We’ll get to as many as possible, but be assured…we’re planning on attempting to hit EVERY show on this list tonight!

  • Emery, Maylene & the Sons of Disaster, Secret & Whisper and Kiros at Remmingtons Downtown (Be sure to get there EARLY…like 7. This show will be over by 11–most likely.)
  • Chris Thomas King at Nathan P. Murphy’s. Chris Thomas King is a Grammy award winning blues musician (over 20 ablums), actor (Ray and O Brother Where Art Thou?) and revolutionized music with the genre-mashing creation of blues-hiphop in the early 90’s. If you want to see a true music legend in a very rare small scale show you only see in movies and hear about on VH1’s Behind the Music…this is your chance. Bring some friends for an extraordinary night. (Wiki) Not only do you get to see Chris Thomas King, but a local legend of sorts…King Clarentz!
  • The Road Kings at Lindberg’s
  • The Short Histories of Powerful Nations, Loose Lips Sink Ships and Washington Irving (one of the last chances to see Washington Irving) at The Outland
  • Nocturnal Nation, Tripleshot, Taking Down Heroes and Archaic Deity at The Outland Ballroom
  • DJ P at The High Life Live Martini Lounge
  • Ben Miller Band and Jalopy at Patton Alley Pub
  • Trash Angels at Archie’s Lounge

Rock Talk 7/12 with Nocturnal Nation, Berch and Dan Magnum of Forever Endeavor Productions

July 14, 2009

kzrqrocktalklogo1Rock Talk, Z 106.7 FM’s weekly local-music radio show on Sunday nights, is all about bringing the unknown artist to the listener. Sunday night’s episode was all about never-been-on-the-show artists: Nocturnal Nation came by to talk about its upcoming Outland Ballroom show on July 18; new college-rock group Berch came by for two jaw-dropping acoustic performances ahead of their July 16 show at Nathan P. Murphy’s and the Four from The Four Four was comprised entirely of FourFour Fest submissions by artists who haven’t been played on Rock Talk before. In with the new, people!

Okay, there was once exception to the never-been-on lineup: Dan Magnum, head honcho of local showbringers Forever Endeavor Productions, returned to the program with a slew of upcoming must-see shows for local music lovers. It’s gonna be a huge summer. Hear it all by performing familiar clicking activities on the link below.
