The Show Report, 7/11: CDReleaseapalooza, Day Two: Get your boots on

July 11, 2009

We promised you more CD release party madness tonight, and, oh, are you getting it. The Bootheel is finally ready to present its six-song EP Gold Tops (album review coming shortly) to the masses tonight, and it does so with a shindig at The Outland Ballroom with Cooter Brown and Washington Irving. As if a show with that three-band package deal isn’t reason enough to brave the Ballroom heat, let’s expound on a couple of other details:

1. There is a fresh batch of Bootheel BBQ Sauce ready for sale at tonight’s show. See if this rings a bell:

2. You’re running out of chances to see Washington Irving in concert, so friggin’ do it already. Seriously. We just deployed the word “friggin'” for emphasis. Nineties-tinged indie rock is in your midst and going away soon. Get out and enjoy it.

That’s not even close to all that’s happening tonight:



Time for your history lesson: The Short Histories of Powerful Nations CD release @ The Warehouse 6/19

June 2, 2009

the-short-histories-of-powerful-nations-the-underground-42509-by-thefourfourcom-springfields-music-blogThank God this show is a little more than two weeks away. We need psych-up time. Lately The Short Histories of Powerful Nations have been putting on some of the most intense concerts we’ve seen in Springfield in quite some time, mixing heavy, fast music with wild, flailing performance art. In short, it’s like watching hardcore on speed and having every band member do his best Jim-Morrison-if-Morrison-played-an-instrument impersonation… with an occasional horn interlude. It’s fantastically chaotic stuff; it also hasn’t been committed to record–until now. The band finally has its EP, A Brief Treatise on Land Ownership Vol. 1, ready for public consumption, and a killer CD release concert ready to roll June 19 to celebrate. We’ll tell you more about it after the break.


Rock Talk’s One Year Anniversary Show: Now longer, with an intro song (again), and with about 700% more profanity

December 8, 2008

kzrqrocktalklogo1True story: To celebrate the one-year birthday of Z106.7’s Rock Talk, we bought birthday cups, blowers than somehow didn’t make noise, party hats (yup, we even wore them), an enormous Star Wars card… and a fifth of Wild Turkey. What ensued is arguably the funniest, most zany and engaging show we’ve ever done. BIG thanks to the show’s former co-host, J.R. Top of Sweetwater Abilene, for coming back from the Great American Wilderness to sit in and take things off the comedic (and FCC) charts.

Not only that, Do Tell & the Rumors came in and played two phenomenal acoustic jams during the broadcast ahead of their show at Sparrows this Friday night. Oh, and did we mention the show is now expanding to TWO hours, with more songs by local artists and big-ticket acts passing through than ever before? We think that leaves no good reason not to click the link below and partake in the madness.


This Sunday: Rock Talk turns one. Yes, we’re playing in the ****ing frosting.

"Stoma! Save some for the other boys! Simon, is the clown ready yet?!"

"Stoma! Save some for the other boys! Simon, is the clown ready yet?!"

Remember when you turned one? Of course you don’t. Not only is that experience purged from your memory, those photos are buried in the back of your parents’ sock drawer, waiting for the next embarrassingly bad time to come out and be shown.

Z106.7’s Rock Talk has no such need for shame, and it’s been proving it weekly for the last calendar year. Ringleader Stoma and his cohosts, J.R. Top of Sweetwater Abilene and, later on, DeRosh and Scott P. of the Four Four, have been talking up local music in all its facets for a full hour every Sunday night at 10 p.m. This week, in honor of the show’s first anniversary, we’re pulling out all the stops for a birthday party. Hide the camera, the liquor cabinet and all sense of censorship. We’ve even got a few surprises, which we’ll tell you about after the break.
