Concert Announcements: The Hold Steady, Mastodon & more

A few concert announcements that I wanted to throw up here quickly. First off is The Hold Steady will be appearing at the Midland Theater in KC for 96.5 The Buzz's Halloweenie Roast show on Thursday, October 27th. Headlining the show is the always great Social Distortion. Also on the bill are Viva Brother and local favorites The Architects.

Here are the rest of the shows I'd recommend that have been announced over the past week or so:

Tue 10/25 Helmet @ The Riot Room, KC
Thu 11/03 Future Islands @ The Jackpot, Lawrence
Sat 11/12 Guns N' Roses @ The Sprint Center, KC
Mon 11/14 Mastodon/The Dillinger Escape Plan/Red Fang @ The Beaumont Club, KC
Sun 11/27 Peter Murphy/She Wants Revenge @ The Beaumont Club, KC



New Song: Lana Del Rey - 'Video Games'

Lana Del Rey is the moniker of 24 year old New Yorker Lizzy Grant. I heard this song for the first time tonight and now I've listened to it about a half dozen times in a row. The song is reminiscent of a mix between Stevie Nicks and Chan Marshall and will be featured on a digital single and a limited 7" out on October 9th. Lana Del Rey is currently working on a full length that's expected to be out early next year. Check out the video for the hauntingly beautiful track below:



Concert Announcement: Wilco

Another JoC all-time favorite Wilco will be making an appearance in Kansas City this winter. They'll be at the Uptown on Saturday, December 3rd. They drew over 3000 to the Crossroads back in 2009, so this will certainty sell out in minutes. No word yet though on when tickets go on sale. Wilco's 8th studio LP, The Whole Love, will be out on September 27th.
