Last but Not Least
There seems to be a natural relationship between ghosts and exits: See a specter; sprint for the door. But fans who see the Ghost at El Torreon on Friday, June 7, might want to stick around to see the Exit's take on the warped emo-indie sound the groups share. Ph Balance, an Atlanta-based fusion outfit, is made for a woman -- specifically, singer and spoken-word artist Pam Howe, who alternates between wispy vocal hooks and poetic interludes. The group rolls on into the Hurricane on Tuesday, June 11. Club Chemical (1111 Grand) continues to cement its reputation as downtown's dance destination, inviting another impressive international lineup (DJ Keoki and Hawaii's DJ Kekoa headline) to an all-night party on Wednesday, June 12. Kansas City's DJ Nitro and DJ Booth open the affair. Running on the fumes of the recent One Love Fest, Black Uhuru and the English Beat's Dave Wakeling power another outdoor reggae extravaganza in the parking lot across from the Beaumont Club on Saturday, June 8. Secret Machines, whose piano-pounding antics and cathartic blasts roused fans two weeks back when the trio opened for ...Trail of Dead, returns to split a bill at the Hurricane with the Feds on Saturday, June 8. Earlier (6 p.m.) at the same venue, Shiver celebrates the release of its latest disc. Under Skin takes more of a raw, bar-band rock approach than the group's polished previous work, maintaining a persistent percussive stomp. Shiver reprises its big chills later that evening, holding a listening party at Tanner's, 12906 West 87th Parkway in Lenexa.
