Join us and our good friends Slow Motion Commotion and Oh Dear Oh My, who are supporting Tulsa’s City Never Sleeps, for a Saturday night of great music. The musical adventure begins around 8pm.
CITY NEVER SLEEPS (TULSA OK) – Easycore band that combines pop punk with metalcore and synthized pop music.
SLOW MOTION COMMOTION (KANSAS CITY) – Accostic folk-punk. We’re just as pissed as you.
OH DEAR OH MY (KCMO) – Drum and synth duo that’s a little dancy, a little funny, and a little dark.
Join us for this Special Sunday Nite Show featuring Bryan McPherson, Dead Ven, Nate Allen and Slow Motion Commotion.Bryan McPherson (has toured with The Dropkick Murphys and been banned by Disney. His acoustic rock n’ roll is extra passionate and very worth experiencing).
“Playing political folk music is obviously reminiscent of icons like Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan, but what distinguishes Bryan Mcpherson from these songwriters is how emotion-centric his music is. His words aren’t just cerebral ponderings about the state of the government. It is one man belting — at the top of his lungs — his honest, emotional impressions of the world” — Aaron Carnes, San Francisco Bay Guardian
Dead Ven – KC working class songs (2 Piece Version)
Nate Allen & The Pac-Away Dots (of Destroy Nate Allen)
Slow Motion Commotion (fresh off their first tour!)
$5 // All-Ages // 7 PM
Come out and help Slow Motion Commotion celebrate the release of their brand-new album, ‘The Day’s Not Over Until You Fall Asleep!!’ We are so proud of SMC’s Ian, Shane and Taylor! The party starts around 6pm-ish. Joining them to rock the night away we have:
Thunder/Dreamer – A dreamy rock band from Somewhere, Indiana. You can find their self-titled EP and their first full-length, Lonesome Morning, at https://thunderdreamer.bandcamp.com/
Bobby Meader Music – Neither folk nor punk, 4 piece Bobby Meader Music exists in a realm of singer-songwriters entirely of their own. These twenty-something musicians hail from Las Vegas, Nevada with a creative mind and absolutely no fear about wearing hearts on their sleeve, which comes in handy when writing songs about love, life, and the impact chasing dreams has on both. Check ’em out at http://www.bobbymeadermusic.com
Rev Gusto – You know ’em, you love ’em, they’re Kansas City’s ass-kickingest garage pop around, and they want to bring down the house with you in it. In a good way. Hear some of their tunes at https://www.reverbnation.com/revgusto
And of course, Slow Motion Commotion, the folk-punk trio that’ll have you laughing, crying, and singing along the whole night through. We’re getting ready to hit the road in support of the new album, but we want to party it up here in our hometown before we go! http://www.slowmotioncommotion.bandcamp.com
This show is ALL AGES and FREE, but please bring a few bucks for the touring bands if you can.
We had a blast last night, with three very talented musician, who are Slow Motion Commotion. Enjoy the video below.
