Local artists earning cred


Last night David Cook (originally from the Kansas City area) was named the most recent American Idol and tonight a local band is going to perform on Letterman.  Not a bad week for area artists.  Wouldn’t mind to see the trend continue.

There’s always been a rivalry between Lawrence and Kansas City acts.  I naturally leaned toward most of the Lawrence bands, but I still like to see any area act earn some attention when it’s well-deserved. 

If you have the opportunity to catch The Republic Tigers tonight you might also want a little background on them.  I chose an article from the KC Star – talks about how they formed and what makes them stand out from the crowded number of bands that flood the internet.

The Tigers will be supporting Nada Surf and they’re getting lots of press & airplay.  Good job, guys!
