Tori Amos is at the Midland on Saturday

It doesn't matter that the reviews for Tori Amos' 14th studio album, Unrepentant Geraldines, released this summer, haven't been especially thrilling. The 50-year-old chanteuse has always done things her own way, and more often than not, the Tori Amos way is weird and alienating.

Warped Tour
Cricket Wireless Amphitheater
Thursday, July 31, 2014


At 34 years old, I think I'm finally too old for Warped Tour. This is despite the fact that, with the weather Thursday afternoon, it was likely the nicest Warped in years. Granted, it's still in a parking lot in direct July sun, but not as bad as it has been. Still, spending my afternoon wandering the Cricket Wireless parking lot where the festival was held, I couldn't help but feel lost.

Justin Timberlake oozed charm last night at the Sprint Center

Sprint Center, Kansas City

For the full slideshow from last night, go here

The charm and charisma of Justin Timberlake is inarguable. The 33-year-old artist dominates on just about every creative outlet he finds, whether he’s giving a blockbuster performance for the big screen, goofing off with Jimmy Fallon or delivering a two-plus hour music marathon at a nearly sold-out arena. He dominates not necessarily because he is an amazing actor (he’s not) or comedic genius (eh) or a heart-stopping singer (though his falsetto is positively golden). It’s more because, in addition to those pieces of higher-than-average talent, Timberlake has a very particular combination of good looks and self-awareness.

Matthew Sweet played 53.33% of Girlfriend last night at Knuckleheads

Just when it seemed like we might be in for a fairly ho-hum run through the hits, Matthew Sweet turned out a truly electrified version of “Evangeline.” And from there it was on.

That song is from Sweet’s eternally awesome 1991 album Girlfriend. It probably would’ve been cool with everybody there if Sweet had just played that record start to finish, as he did on 2011’s Girlfriend 20th Anniversary Tour. But he didn’t come through Kansas City on that jaunt. Indeed, in Sweet’s words: “It’s been some time between electricity and computers since the last time we were in Kansas City.”

Nick Waterhouse gave a modern twist to an old sound last night at Riot Room

Nick Waterhouse definitely deserves a bigger crowd than the one that flocked over to the Riot Room last night for his show, but he couldn’t have asked for a better one. In a little over an hour, the Los Angeles artist had driven the comfortable crowd to enthusiastic heights, shaking and dancing like it was the weekend and that show was a highly anticipated annual sock-hop.
