Fullbloods

What's new?

We're currently recording our second full-length album, scheduled to be released in late October on Golden Sound Records. We also released a single titled "Heavily Drugged" in April on the Golden Sound Records/the Record Machine vinyl LP split Secret Handshakes.

In a perfect world, how would music critics describe your band?

"I saw them live and I really enjoyed the music. They all make weird faces but are still incredibly handsome."

Who are some other nominated acts you're a fan of?

Shy Boys, the ACBs, Ghosty, the Caves, Hearts of Darkness, Max Justus, Hidden Pictures, the B'Dinas ... I'm sorry, there are too many.

What do you like about KC as a music town?

I've always been kind of a hometown-turf guy. If it's your city, invest in it. The music community here is getting bigger, and I'm really liking what's coming out of it. Now get off your butt and go see a show.

Radkey

What's new?

Putting the finishing touches on some new songs. New EP coming in September.

 In a perfect world, how would music critics describe your band?

In a perfect world, they'd say we have a catchy beat and you could dance to it.

 Who are some other nominated acts you're a fan of?

Deco Auto, Soft Reeds, Dead Girls and Mouthbreathers. They all rock.

 What's your favorite KC venue?

RecordBar because they have great sound, awesome food and good people. The Riot Room is a close second.

The Cave Girls

What's new?

We are about to play the P&L District for the first time ever. Hopefully we can lure some of their clientele into some local establishments in the future! Released our first EP on Cave Out Records last winter.

In a perfect world, how would music critics describe your band?

"The Cave Girls hit you like a club to the head!!"

What do you like about KC as a music town?

The Kansas City scene is on fire! Every time we play, we are seeing other bands kicking ass! It's a great moment for Kansas City music!

The Clementines

What's new?

We are are now a four-piece band, with Travis Earndshaw on bass and Stephanie Williams on drums. They make up a phenomenal rhythm section, and we are much more rocking in general now.

What other nominated acts are you a fan of?

We are huge fans of the Cave Girls. They are a lot of fun, kind of classic Who meets the Kinks with a little bit on the Bengals thrown in. Plus Stephanie is their bassist. She's in about 900 bands.

What's your favorite KC venue?

Tough to say ... the Trouser Mouse in Blue Springs has been very good to us — we got our start there, and their initial acceptance of us was very important. RecordBar and the Brick are always fun to play. The staff at both are super nice, and they are pros when it comes to live music. We got the chance to play VooDoo a couple of times recently, and the stage lighting and sound system there are amazing. It's a blast to play.
