A California to KC cross-genre connection!!!
Four acts’ hands will all be on deck for a High Five Revival!!!
Kansas City, MO, July 19th, 2010: Kansas City and San Francisco have more in common than underachieving baseball teams and trolleys. They also both have vibrant music scenes. The two cities will circle up the third week of August to prove this to a KC crowd at Crosstown Station
(1522 McGee). High Five Revival
, an Electrogruve/Grunge outfit, will make the trip out from the Golden State to join Clay Hughes
for the “Crosstown Traffic” show on Thursday, August 19th at 9pm. Patrons must be 21 and accompanied by an “Abe Lincoln” ($5 bill) to enter. The five-man group (affectionately called “hi5”) released their debut album, Grey Goose Drug Use And Spousal Abuse
in March of 2010.
When the lights go up for “Crosstown Traffic”
The Revival’s lead vocalist Andrew Witt and Reach won’t exactly be Perfect Strangers. The two have been musical collaborators for over a year now. In fact, Reach flew Andrew Witt, known as 616pm as a solo artist, to Kansas City for his “GoodButta” podcast in September of 2009 (he’s actually the voice of the show’s intro). Reach has taken a serious interest in collaborating with live musicians over the last calendar year. This show’s lineup boasts everything from the aforementioned Electrogruve, to Folk, to Rock, to Blues, to Reggae, to Hip Hop. Such a diverse assemblage of artists is sure to find just about everyone’s wheelhouse. Ladies are welcome free of charge before 9pm. “Traffic” on Thursday, August 19th promises to be a great night of music and much less daunting than drive-time in the Grandview Triangle. Vroom…vroom.
