Dead Dads Club
South Hyde Park DIY storefront space Roller Dog was set to host Olympia indie folksters Oh, Rose on April 5, but word was handed down hours before the show that the band wouldn't be playing in Kansas City due to an injury. Music fans in search of something to do were not completely let down though, as the show pushed on as an all-locals bill. The newly-full-band Dead Dads Club extended their triumphant opening run and acted as the night's fill-in headliner. Alice Ryan and her boys played to a friendly crowd of a few dozen folks, which cheered her on and at one point presented her with a hot dog from the venue's roller, which she proceeded to tuck into the collar of her windbreaker. It turned out to be one of the best DIY scene fashion moves in recent memory.

Fraydee Cat was the night's second performer. The one-man-band cooked up an endlessly busy set of synth-y dance pop and experimental introspection that featured a constant shuffle between keys, drums, and fervent guitar strumming. The 30-minute performance proved, however, to be a bit lengthy for several attendees who retreated to sit in the back before its end. The show was opened by singer-songwriter Ingrid Ingram, whose pop-centric powerchords and pure enthusiasm put smiles on faces of all those inside the Dog.
