Apocalypse Meow 13

Apocalypse Meow was established in 2008 to raise medical funds for local musician Abigail Henderson, who had been diagnosed with cancer. Compelled to give back to the community, she co-founded MMF to connect musicians to health care resources. Though she passed away in 2013, Abigail’s mission continues — MMF provides financial resources, educational programs, health clinics, and events throughout the year. Abby’s Fund dispenses emergency health care grants to KC-area musicians,

Record Store DAY has been extended to THIS Weekend October 24th

The vinyl record renaissance over the past decade has brought new fans to a classic format and transformed our idea of a record collector: younger, both male and female, multicultural. This same revival has made buying music more expensive, benefited established bands over independent artists and muddled the question of whether vinyl actually sounds better than other formats.

Vinyl Nation digs into the crates of the record resurgence in search of truths set in deep wax: Has the return of vinyl made music fandom more inclusive or divided? What does vinyl say about our past here in the present? How has the second life of vinyl changed how we hear music and how we listen to each other?

Buy tickets from Mills Record Company in KCMO, OR at the Fine Arts Group (Glenwood Arts & Rio) in Overland Park.

New Music – Essenger – Empire Of Steel (feat. Scandroid)

NEW MUSIC VIDEO

WATCH NOW!

Essenger stands on the cutting edge of electronic music, blending an array of influences for a sound that pays tribute to modern alt rock, EDM, and synthwave. The artist marks his highly personal songwriting style with striking lyrics, and the result is a singular creative style that opens new possibilities for both retro and future synth music.
The artist’s adept compositional skills and production chops helped his early singles attract a significant following while racking up hundreds of thousands of streams on individual songs. Essenger soon connected with prominent labels including Seeking Blue and Monstercat, and those early successes led to an album deal with independent synthwave label FiXT Neon in late 2019.
