Event Details
The Casket Lottery
Whereas Kansas City’s favorite sons are defined by their traditional harmonious and abrasive bombardment of punk and hardcore tenacity, they have now created tracks which are entirely more fleshed out than previous releases.

Strapped with an arsenal of moody, abrasive guitars, precision bass lines and mathy drumwork, The Casket Lottery return with their strongest album to date, Real Fear; a beautifully cathartic, dreary-dreamlike swirl of grooving riffs that intertwine with singer Nathan Ellis' relentless vocals that transcend into a euphoric intensity for the dark horse album of the fall.

Maps for Travelers
Maps For Travelers Formed in the Spring of 2010 and is a collective of 4 musicians who have played and toured nationally in various bands in and around the local Kansas city area. Maps For Travelers have their eyes set on simply making music, writing records and taking it to the streets for people to hear live. With influences such as Braid, Hey Mercedes, Far, Quicksand, Fugazi, American Football, Brand New and many other bands.

Jar'd Loose
From a city of musical innovators, Jar’d Loose present the next
chapter in their hometown’s history of heaviness. Jar’d Loose’s sound
is all their own — thoroughly rocking yet left-of-center, totally new
yet aligned with the spirit of their musical ancestors, from The Jesus
Lizard to Entombed.

Hot Coffin (MKE)
