Brave Bird and Trapper

So yesterday i went to yet another touring do-it-yourself band and some locals. Need i say more, im obviously to supportive of “non-pros”. Im telling you guys it is by far more talent and more friendly then the big dogs. Anyway the band that was touring was called Brave Bird and the locals i enjoyed the most were Trapper.

Brave Bird: Is an emo math rock band from Ann Arbor. They are beautifully executed, with precision plucking and collection of teamwork. If you get a chance to check out their lyrics you should as well, because i really enjoy them and their vocalist alone is phenomenal. Not really much else i can say, except worth buying their music and also very much made me want to dance.

Trapper: I got to the show a little late, but ended up talking to these guys outside before i heard their set. I had recently heard about them only through my friend Zoe, who has some art lined up for them. Anyway, they were super nice guys and when they started playing i wasnt sure what to expect. I had been told they were punk, and they definitely were in a sense. But they had more than one genre up their sleeve. These guys were super original with lots of nifty tricks and trades to keep a fellow to keep listening. They broke down into hardcore settings sometimes, but most often had a soft spoken mellow tone with groovy little get-ups leading into chorus singing and harmonic styles of lyics that hold some righteous meaning. They have a new addition with a keyboard player, but has not released him yet. Check them out for sure.

There was another band i missed called The Family Bed who are also really splendid from what ive heard on bandcamp.


Local Music Is Better

Diving

The emo group plays great!

The emo group plays great!

Hey folks! I go to allot of shows and concerts, if you didn’t know. I have to say when i use to start out with music i saw local artists to kansas city and they inspired me to listen to that style and genre of music. After a while i started forgetting about the locals and moving on to the professionals that had a “knack” for this talent of music. Dont get me wrong the pros are great at what they do, but recently i have attended allot of local shows again and honestly…thats where it all starts. The roots and souls of every great musician is when they are a diy group or unsigned and living on the simple passion to play. I love my signed music too, but sometimes they sell out or just feel completely corporate about how they play. This is definitely not always the case but, id rather support people that i can talk to and relate to for a cheap price then spend big money on the big guys. There is also allot of great venues, great crowd energy, and it just feels great to be a part of the community. Thats my two cents anyway. Yesterday i saw this band “Diving”, (from Austin, Texas) in Kansas city at the art closet studios. They are beautiful and actually the first group and show ive seen within the scene of the “emo” genre! I love emo music by the way, and these guys definitley did me some good.

With this being said i encourage you to check out the locals in your area. It makes me feel nice:)
