About the Bands:

Your Robot Friends- “Your Robot Friends is an alternative rock band from Kansas City, drawing its inspiration from folk rhythms, rock riffs, and blues melodies. The resulting combination yields a dynamic, genre bending style that will have you tapping your foot and asking for more. The band recently released their demo tracks for streaming, and is currently preparing their debut album with growing anticipation. 


On an evening in Fall of 2013, Bryan Klote (Guitar) and Clay Beasley (Guitar/Vocals) ran into each other after 10 years. While catching up, they discovered both had been writing independently for several months. The two exchanged some tracks via email, and shortly after decided to get together to see what, if anything, would come out of it. The contrast between Clay’s folk based songs and Bryan’s rock roots led to an intriguing combination. After months of writing, and honing their style, the duo was ready to add members. After a few changes, the group settled into the current lineup. Brett Woolley (Drums) answered an ad put out by the band. Brett brings an immense amount of prior music experience, and his hard hitting beats bring an added element and drive to the tracks. A fellow musician and friend introduced the guys to Steven Cochran (Bass), and things clicked immediately, both musically and personally. He adds the much needed bottom end grove to the group. With the lineup complete, Your Robot Friends set out to refine their tracks, and fully define their sound.”
 Dead Country Gentlemen- 

“The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?” -Edgar Allan Poe

Expelled from the electrified womb of a city that never sleeps, nursed at the tit of alcohol induced delirium, baptized in a river rock n roll, Dead Country Gentlemen is a construct of raw emotions intermingled with hope, loss, love, failure and redemption – a window onto a landscape of broken dreams and scattered illusions.

DCG is a nightly opportunity for things broken to be fixed, a place to hang, discover, disappear and be re-born – a country of sight and sound, pleasure and pain. Halleluiah brother.

Presented for your consumption; fuzz, feedback, distortion and reverb that explodes in a maelstrom of blues driven riffs, heart pounding rhythms and mind-pondering lyrics. A duo of sound and fury coupled with true authentic blue-collar stage ethics distilled from miles of blacktop road and relentless touring. Each show is a real live breathing thing, an uncontrolled beast set loose, a pulse quickening experience that brings the edge dangerously close, close enough to see and maybe fall over. Like life, DCG is meant to be felt and experienced live – like hot breath on your neck they’ll crawl over you and get under your skin – in a good way, like a shot going down – warming, exciting, intoxicating.”
