This time around we take a deeper dive into the lineup for Middle of the Map Fest 2017. Hear BRAND NEW music from The Sluts (it’s so good) and also music from a newer KC band named Mess. There will be music from two bands that make their way to KC after they play Coachella, Zipper Club (NY/LA) and Arkells (Canada). Also, a couple acts that Chris thinks could be sleeper picks for your new favorite bands after you see them at Middle, Ro Ransom (NY) and CAAMP (Ohio), plus music from the Atlanta band Big Jesus and the great Stik Figa out of Topeka. Then, for good measure we’ll throw in some music from our headliners: Jason Isbell, De La Soul and Talib Kweli.
