From the ethereal to the angular, the Kalamazoo Institute o’ Farts will be covering many forms of folk and folk influenced tonight.
DEAR RABBIT - jangly gypsy vaudvillian onslaught traveling from Colorado.
LINCOLN COUNTY WAR – local folk punk duo, meshing gruff and distraught with beautiful violin.
DEEP WATERS – a band of folk players making dreamy spacy and (potentially) keyboardy sounds.
ARMS AKIMBO – a one man band of dwelling on the past while simultaneously getting up and moving on.
This show is at 8:00 PM. Bring a couple of dollars for the touring folks.
For the address, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Oh, Dear Rabbit, not deer rabbit. Sorry, Jackalope!
A grand old night of progressive, post-hardcore jams coming up this Wednesday (5/15) at The Courthouse. Post-hardcore has long been a staple of the local music scene here in Southwest-Michigan and we’ve got four touring acts bring their own twist to the ever expanding genre, with Kzoo’s Pro Con Pro closing the show out. Not to limit any of the artists by a single label, the variety of sound pumping through each act is monumental. You should expect to be lulled melodically one second, only to find yourself in a mosh pit the next, with many experimental flavors in between.
The doors are at eight and the show will start sometime after nine – bring the bucks for the touring bands – bring some respect for all – and bring the dancing shoes.

Come bang your heads this Saturday (5/4) at Touchdown City for an event hosted by three very special (and totally rockin’) musical crews. Headlining the show will be Kalamazoo’s very own George Costanza, a three-piece Math/Emo punk band.
Joining them will be two favorites from Philadelphia–Cassilus and Point Breeze–who have been touring the Midwest together this Spring. Cassilus has been navigating the hardcore scene since ’08, and has released one album through Slow Growth Records. It also has released several demos through its Bandcamp, which can be located below.
Point Breeze is an unsigned, heavy punk band. Its Bandcamp is embedded below.
There is no cover, however our friends kindly ask you for donations.
