Scott H Biram Westport Saloon

Sunday, July 25th

We’re halfway through the summer and our show calendar is looking as hot as the forecast! This past weekend marked our first Sunday night show of the summer, with many more Sunday and Thursdays on the docket. Be sure to keep up with the Westport Saloon here on our site and across the socials so you don’t miss out on anything!

Autonomous Jook, the project of KC-based musician and craftsman A.J. Gaither, debuted a rad new one-man project to open up the night. His homemade instruments we all know and love are still in play, just now with the added bonus of some seriously cool looping technology. A.J. has been working tirelessly for months to hone this new skill, and boy howdy did it pay off! On top of some killer new originals, we got to hear old familiar favorites with whole new worlds of complexity layered in. You can catch his whole set below (and check out the new cameras we’ve got for the livestream—how bout those multi-angle views?). My personal favorite came in at the end of the set, with a funky story reminding everyone to keep that dirt shaken off your back.

Tearing down the house after AJ was the man of the hour, THE dirty old one man band… Scott H. Biram. Sunday marked his first time at the Westport Saloon with an in-person audience (he did a live stream only event in 2020 you can catch HERE) and KCMO showed up for it! I know it sounded like there was a legion of demon truckers on stage, but it was just Biram and his six guitars. He came out of the gate with a stellar Lightnin’ Hopkins cover, Blues in the Bottle. Biram’s Texas roots often shine through his music and I’m personally not mad about it. The set came careening to a stop with a wild ass version of his song TrainWrecker and a solid 3 minutes of freaked out feedback.

The highlight of the set, however, happened about halfway through with a sweet rendition of Wildside that bled beautifully into a raucous take on Plow You Under. Catch the medley below, or the full set HERE!

Thank you!

As always, we are eternally grateful for our patrons at the Westport Saloon. Without your support, we wouldn’t have a stage to keep the music alive on! You can find our full calendar of shows HERE.
