The Kinetiks' reputation for a fierce and playful live set was enough to pack the dance floor at the Bottleneck. Last night, new KU grads forgot about the upcoming job hunt, school loan payments and mapping out the rest of their lives. Instead, they lived in the moment; dancing to the loud, wild and spunky sounds that helped them survive their college years.
Live, loud and local: rockin' out with American Catastrophe and other indie bands for the Sonic Spectrum Anniversary Showcase in Kansas City.
Staying up late on a week night to catch rockin' performances by the Thermals and their Lawrence counterparts at the Bottleneck on Tuesday night.
A cozy night under the stars with out-of-this-world electronica and indie pop goodness.
For folks just coming down from the Wakarusa buzz...or for others who couldn't afford to join the throng of festival goers....the Bottleneck offered up headliners who straddled the border of indie rock and Christian pop.
I didn't want to miss a minute of the local up-and-coming indie pop band Ghosty. I was looking forward to this concert after listening to Lawrence locals hyping the group, who have academic roots at KU.
Moody prog rock and soulful indie pop warmed up the brave souls who ignored weather and finals in order to make it out to the Jackpot Saloon on Friday night.
I expected a good time. I didn't expect to get the wind knocked out of me.
