The Oh Hellos are at the Bottleneck tonight

In 2012, a virus infected pockets of the country that led to a frenzied craze for spirited banjo tunes and earthy harmonies. English imports Mumford & Sons led the outbreak, releasing one of the year's top-selling albums, and the group's cause was helped along by the Lumineers, whose self-titled debut gave us the eye-twitch inducing "Hey Ho." Then there was Texas duo the Oh Hellos, whose Through the Deep, Dark Valley, despite all the sonic similarities, didn't shoot it into the Mumfordian stratosphere.

Well, this sucks: Cowboy Indian Bear, one of the area's most reliable and promising acts, has declared itself dead.

A post on the band's Facebook page this morning broke the news (and offered some music to ease the pain). It all sounds pretty amicable. See the whole thing after the jump.

Katie West's ceaseless creative output is a little unnerving. When she isn't writing songs and performing with her husband, Mike West, in the quirky duo Truckstop Honeymoon, she's churning out spirited folk tunes for 40 Watt Dreams. What began as a solo project about a year ago has now been fleshed out to include four other band members (including her husband), with songs that rock a little harder than Truckstop Honeymoon's backyard jams.

When songwriter Jeff Black left Kansas City for Nashville in 1989, he hoped to make it as the classic Music Row writer — Alison Krauss, Sam Bush and many others covered his songs. But before he knew it, Black had a double handful of his own solo albums (including two collections of B-sides). This year, Black, on his own Lotos Nile imprint, set loose Folklore, a wide-ranging collection of acoustic tales of family, friends and other characters captured in song, including his grandmother in the title track and “emo rockers at the Costco” stocking up on powdered milk and diapers in “Tom Domino.”

Temples with The Districts
Riot Room, Kansas City
Tuesday, Oct. 14

Coming off a late Royals ALCS win there wasn’t really a need for more energy in the packed Riot Room, but Temples brought it anyway, sizzling off an action-packed – if short – burst of songs from their acclaimed debut album, Sun Structures.

Fifty years ago in London, Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle and Keith Moon united to form the Who. More than three decades after the band's first farewell tour, the group is rousing itself once more. Well, sort of - only Daltrey and Townshend remain from the founding four, and they tour these days with a full band. "The Who Hits 50!" Tour stops at the Sprint Center on Tuesday, May 5.

It wasn't that long ago that Temples was in town, playing to a sold-out crowd at RecordBar. The English band is back Tuesday, this time at the Riot Room, continuing a tour in support of its debut, Sun Structures. When that album was released in February, music critics and fans fell over themselves to praise it.

Solo acoustic shows can be quiet old things, but last night Glenn Tilbrook shattered that stereotype. From the moment he pounced onstage and invited the crowd to sing along with “Best of Times,” Tilbrook played like a full band - and much to the joy of fans, that band was Squeeze.

Squeeze frontman Glenn Tilbrook has a solo show at RecordBar tonight

In March, Squeeze frontman and guitarist Glenn Tilbrook released a solo album, Happy Ending, which I assumed was a euphemism. (C'mon, you did, too.) But Tilbrook isn't that jaded, and his songs end up pretty fluffy without Squeeze partner Chris Difford to write lyrics for his melodies.
