Vedera  

Thursday, February 9, at The Bottleneck.

Vedera Just when the general populace of Kansas City was getting used to Veda, the little indie darling had to go and change its name to Vedera. Keep in mind that it wasn't exactly the band's idea — a Los Angeles band with the same name and an angry attorney decided on its behalf. Still, the abrupt name revision makes the band sound like a gas station or a reasonably priced German sedan. The best that can be said about the new name is that it's a strong advocate for running a spell check. But though the moniker may have changed, the elements that made Veda successful — the pixielike look, siren call and rock-steady stage presence of singer and guitarist Kristin May — are still front and center. And with a 40-city tour under way and one of last year's best albums under its belt, Vedera is a name few will soon forget. — Aaron Ladage
