Today in KC’s Music History: The Record Bar Opens

Bookmark and Share

recordBar is celebrating a milestone this weekend with a series of shows. This important venue opened its doors this weekend in 2005.

Initially, the venue planned to do music only a couple of nights a week, but its music offerings steadily grew, and it’s become an important venue for local bands and national acts. Lots of locals play there to build a following and celebrate CD releases. National acts that have played there include: Joe Strummer from the Clash, Exene Cervenka, the Ting Tings and the National.

The Pitch’s music blog, Wayward Blog, has a great interview with one of the owners, Steve Tulipana.
