Photo Gallery: Hi-Lux/Mentira/False Brother at The Snake Tank

Julia Haile of Hi-Lux
Oddities Prints hosted an all-day open house on Saturday that showcased work from over a dozen Kansas City area artists. The day's festivities concluded with a free three band show in the basement. The show featured dazzling soul stylings of Hi-Lux, outrageously fast punk tunes from Mentira -- briefly known as Anseidad, and post-punk perfection by False Brother.

Photo Gallery: Lawrence Invasion at Mills Record Company

Treet Ward of Young Bull
Three Lawrence groups invaded Kansas City on Saturday night for a Shuttlecock-endorsed show at Mills Record Company. Young Bull demolished the record store's modest stage with glorious solos and fist-pumping metallic madness. Hip-hop collective Vivid Zebra linked up for their first collaborative set since Post Malone earlier this year; Ricky Roosevelt, Tione, Raymond, and Alccalh all got some shine. The show was opened up with a gorgeously punishing set from Aprilmist.

Thank you to everyone who attended and performed, as well as the amazing staff at Mills Record Company for hosting.

Photo Gallery: Mac Miller at Uptown Theater

Mac Miller
Pittsburgh stoner rap icon Mac Miller has undergone a surprisingly graceful transition over the past few years. Formerly known for being something of a dopey Mickey Mouse character, ridiculed by hip-hop elitists, his newest material has borrowed heavily from the genres of neo-soul and R&B. Miller's "Divine Feminine" tour stopped at Uptown Theater on Tuesday night and allowed for the raspy-voiced rapper-singer to croon several newer, smoother tracks as he stood stationary at the microphone. An elegant mirror, blue sky backdrop, and technicolor light show aided in keeping the show visually stimulating while Miller showcased his new album. The fans that grew up listening to Miller's music and spacing out to it in the back of their high school algebra classes were still rewarded, however, with several throwbacks to the rapper's earlier, more lighthearted mixtape catalog. Miller bounced across the stage on songs like "Loud," a rowdy "Macadelic" track, serving up every line with vigor and employing a hypeman to back him up.

816 Music Break 006: Thor Harris

On this week's episode of 816 Music Break, Cameron and I talked about Young Thug and 21 Savage's show at The Midland last week, a new song from Lymerrick, and the upcoming Oddities Prints Expo & Open House.

This week's interview was with Thor Harris (of Thor & Friends and Swans). We discussed how his most recent project Thor & Friends came together, some of his carpentry work, notes on dealing with depression through art, and his decision not to tour with Swans this year.

Photo Gallery: AGENT/Wet Ones/The Drippies

Devin McKernan of AGENT
The wrecking ball that is Kansas City d-beat band AGENT released its new cassette EP titled "Endless Disposal" at The Blind Tiger on Friday night. After a charming introduction from Lumpy & The Dumpers frontman Martin Meyer, the band took the stage to playful heckling from a room filled with friends. Quickly after the first song began, the basement transformed into a beer-spraying, slam dancing madhouse that could not be tamed for the remainder of AGENT's set. The show was opened by fellow Kansas City punk bands Wet Ones and The Drippies.
