Minus Story

with Winston Jazz Routine / Olympic Size

Record Bar

With Darkuary rearing its ugly head once again (and bringing with it the annual dry spell for live music), an occasional trip to Kansas City's uber-hip The Record Bar may be in order. This impressive three-band local bill is headlined by Lawrence indie-rock tinkerers Minus Story. The band will release a seven-song EP dubbed "Make the Dead Come" in January on the Jagjaguwar label. Haunting melodies collide with a home-recording aesthetic in the band's wonderfully warped world.Opener The Winston Jazz Routine hails from Nashville but partners with KC's Record Machine label. The band's low-key singer/songwriter sound has very little to do with jazz, moreso recalling Sufjan Stevens.KC's ethereal soundscape painters Olympic Size (featuring vocalist Kirsten Paludan) set the stage.
