Ghosts of Grandads Past, Gutter Demons

9pm: Ghosts of Grandad’s Past

Hailing from Kansas City, Ghosts of Grandads Past have spun their own tale on songs and stories of depression & murder, love & hate, Satan & sadness to come up with their own style on southern gothic tales while throwing in elements of folk, punk rock, goth rock and classic country.

Starting from the ashes of local band Whiskey Breath and not stopping by either health issues or members coming and going, they are quickly becoming a staple in the Kansas City music scene and have shared the stage with artists such as Amigo the Devil, Harley Poe, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, DBUK, Freight Train Rabbit Killer, Tejon Street Corner Thieves and many more. Together and collectively, the members of Ghosts of Grandads Past have played all over the country and festivals including Muddy Roots Music Festival, Farmaggedon Record Music Fest, Westport Roots Festival and Dylan’s Birthday Bender yearly in Kansas City.

Their mutual love of depressing tunes & stories has led them to this point. Members of Whiskey Breath, the Corpses, Box Herders, Still Shine Railroad, Adam Lee and the Dead Horse Sound Company, The Blue Boot Heelers.

Ghosts of Grandads Past are Patrick McGillicuddy, Dane Talley and Shawn Sweeney.

10pm: Gutter Demons

Since their unholy birth in 2001, Gutter Demons have been tearing up the scene across Canada, USA and Europe with their intense stage shows, raucous rock n’ roll music, red-blooded Rockabilly roots, Punk and Heavy Metal potency and downright dirty musicianship.

Gutter Demons are, without a doubt, among the pioneers of the Canadian Psychobilly scene. This Montreal-based three-piece has been burning up stages and melting faces around the globe for nearly two decades with their infectious brand of high octane psycho rock n’ roll. The band has paved the way for other great acts like The Creepshow, The Brains and Raygun Cowboys to create a strong, loyal and vibrant community across the country.

They’ve shared the stage with The Misfits, Rancid, The Reverend Horton Heat, UK Subs, Vibrators, Leftover Crack, Nashville Pussy (among many others). They’ve appeared on international festivals like Psychobilly Meeting (Barcelona), Wreckers Ball (LA), Drop Dead Fest (NYC), Bedlam Fest (UK) and have appeared on countless compilations, seven inches, video game soundtracks and splits.

The Westport Saloon

Located in Kansas City’s historic Westport District, The Westport Saloon has become a midwest haven for the underground. Roots, Honky Tonk, Bluegrass, Blues, Blues Rock, Folk, Rockabilly, and that Twang you live for.

Like the settlers of Westport, we work tirelessly to bring amazing names to our stage. Over the years we have hosted acts such as Wayne “the Train” Hancock, Dale Watson, Moe Brandy, JD Wilkes, Jayke Orvis and the Broken Band,  The Goddamn Gallows, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, Bob Wayne and the Outlaw Carnies, Luke Bell, The Hooten Hallers, Carries Nation and the Speakeasy and so many more.

Like the settlers of Westport, we are also known for our whiskey. Overtime, and as tastes have changed, we have amassed quite the collection to keep your glass filled and you coming back. Saloons predate prohibition establishments, when drinks were uncomplicated, not pretentious and hearty.  It’s alright to be heavy on the bourbon and Scotch – we don’t judge.
