American Youth to share Bottleneck stage with local acts Approach, Radkey and My Brother, the Vulture
Brady Groothuis, an artist manager for American Youth and former member of the local band From Quiet Arms, tells me American Youth brings forth folky overtones and vocal prowess with plenty of emotion. Listen to one of their songs in its “rawest form” below:
Local MC Approach mixes hip hop and soul to create a funky, energetic show. Alex Garrison’s feature of him earlier this year does a nice job of highlighting his friendly, humble demeanor and years of musical experience and passion.
My Brother, the Vulture will be playing their final show—not ever, but under the MBTV name. The band has a new bassist and will be playing under the moniker Sovereign States in the future. They’ll continue to host the weekly emo/punk karaoke event Taking Back Mondays at the Bottleneck.
The young brothers of Radkey, the St. Joseph, Mo., punk band, will also be playing. I can’t tell you how many people I’ve seen be completely awed seeing them live for the first time. If you haven’t seen them yet, why not?
Doors open at 8 p.m. and the show costs $7.
