Spring 2013 Kansas City Concert Roundup


The time is here. We’ve all been dormant for far too long this winter, now it’s time we all start packing venues and watching our favorite bands. There’s quite a bit of goodness coming to KC this Spring, and what better way than to start it off with Sigur Rós, who’ll be bringing their brand new revamped stage show to Starlight, as well as plenty new tracks from their upcoming album. Not to mention that the Sigur Rós show also kicks off our Middle Of The Map festival featuring appearances by Grizzly Bear and The Joy Formidable. It’s exciting to see MOTM grow bigger and bigger each year. Who knows, in a few years time, maybe it’ll turn into the second SXSW! So as you can see, plenty of bands to throw your hard earned money towards, so hope y’all are saving up, because SPRING BREAK FOREVER, BITCHES.
