For whatever reason, Magnolia Electric Co. has decided to grace the Kansas City area with its second show in as many months. The big difference this time is that you'll probably know all the words by heart from the group's latest release, Josephine. Beginning under the alias Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric was established in 2003 and named for the last Ohia record. Band member Jason Molina has spent the past 13 years proving himself one of the premier songwriters of his generation; the songs on Josephine, as with his previous releases, prominently feature ghosts, highways, the West, heartbreak, and the myriad rootsy elements that make him the guiding light of alt-country these days. In tow are San Diegans and Lawrence frequenters the Donkeys, who will most certainly deliver their laid-back, surfer-friendly, Rhodes-piano-enhanced brand of poppy alt-country. Make sure to say hi after the show — the Donkeys are probably the coolest touring band you're likely to meet.
