The Show Report, 7/23: Homecoming in July

July 23, 2009

Tonight brings two Springfield residents–one past, one present–back to the city for a big show. Future Leaders of the World, fronted by onetime Springfield resident Phil Taylor and the band responsible for this hit song, headlines The Outland Ballroom tonight with Formant, Assembly Line Gods and Glass Bottom Boat Ride. Also back in town is FLOW bassist and Formant guitarist Erik McGreevy, who will be doing double duty during the last two sets of the night. It’s a triumphant return for both men, each of whom has strong ties to the city and both of whom have worked hard to make the return of FLOW a success. So consider tonight’s show a celebration of sorts, and prepare to party accordingly. We’ll be there, along with the crew from Z 106.7 FM and Ozarks Live Productions, and we all like talking music over a beer. Find us and partake.

July 20, 2009

That’s right, it’s Monday and you’re getting another Show Report. The Summer of the Show rolls on with concerts of both the one-night-only and weekly variety awaiting at the end of the day. You just have to make it through a day of work (ugh) to get to them. Consider these the carrot on a stick:

Future Leaders of the World returns to Springfield

June 18, 2009

Some may remember Future Leaders of the World from their huge 2004 hit “Let Me Out.” They reached top 10 on Billboard and thanks to the disintegrating record industry, they faded away. Phil Taylor (he pretty much IS Future Leaders of the World) has gone on to do A LOT of great things including starting a new band based out of Benton, AR called Machina with former Evanescence guitarist John LeCompt and drummer Rocky Gray. Phil also started a production company (Phil Taylor Productions), with which he produced a number of Springfield, MO acts including Tara James, Cinemascope and The Horizon is After Us. Phil and John also started RedRoom Studios. So, with a new band, production company, and recording studio going…he also started managing a few bands and booking for The Mustang Agency. Yeah, he’s a pretty busy guy.

On top of all this, he’s also been working on new Future Leaders music and spent most of the past 6 months recording the new Future Leaders album, titled “Reveal,” at The Brewery Studios in Seattle, WA. Having gotten the chance to hear a number of the tracks from the upcoming album…this stuff is REALLY freakin’ good. Lucky for us, FLOW is hitting Springfield in July…details after the jump.


SHOW REPORT: Ozarks Live brings Black Tie Vendetta

May 28, 2009


This Thursday hasn’t started out the best with FOG. FOG…srsly? Well screw it, there’s a ton of great stuff going on tonight to  tease us of the weekend. Get out of the house and enjoy a good show or two with some friends.

Our featured show tonight is a touring act out of Texas by the name of Black Tie Vendetta and brought to you by Ozarks Live Productions. These guys are like a more radio-friendly 36CrazyFists (which I am personally a big fan of) so this is going to be a lot of fun. Stop by their MySpace…we recommend checking out “Caught In A Crowd” or “Armed & Ready.” This show is ALL AGES and starts at 8pm. In support will be locals Formant, Assembly Line Gods and 7 Dollar Stereo out of Lebanon. At $10, you’ll get a great rock show worth blowing off “Must See TV” for a night.

Click through for a bunch of other great shows going on tonight…


The Show Report, 5/20: A what flex?

May 20, 2009

MAY20TH336x420ADMATBALLROOMNot a Soloflex, a Bobaflex, or rather the Bobaflex, though the band’s show at The Outland Ballroom tonight should still be good for a helluva workout. The metal act–which, believe it or not, has been together more than 10 years–comes to town tonight with Adakain and a bevy of good local openers: All Kills Aside, Six Shots Till Dawn and Troy. The whole Ozarks Live Productions shebang starts tonight at 8 p.m., but if you’re feeling particularly adventurous we suggest ponying up an extra three bucks to get in the High Life Live Martini Lounge door, as well. Then you can barhop between the upstairs bedlam and the smooth downstairs grooves of Urban Legend, the High Life’s weekly gathering of live musicians who improv hip hop tracks with the help of DJ Platinum. Now you can dance or trash your Hump Day doldrums away. Is there a better workout than that?

An Ozarks Live Productions update: Showbread and Trust Company coming back to Springfield, plus more

February 10, 2009

Expect to see more than a few of these at the Ballroom March 9.

The oh-so-prolific Ozarks Live Productions continues to proudly buck the less-is-more trend in booking touring acts in Springfield. A quick scan of the company’s schedule shows seven such bands coming through between now and mid-March alone. Among the highlights: Showbread March 9 with The Fold, White Collar Sideshow and Deas Vail at The Outland Ballroom; and Trust Company the next night (March 10) with The Dreaming, Eve To Adam and an as-yet-unnamed local act at The Outland Ballroom as well. It only gets better from there. Make your mouse do some work on the link below by pointing and clicking.
