If you went, you might have heard
If you're not proactively ignoring local music in Lawrence, you've surely noticed their name on fliers, if not seen them on stage several times already. The Volunteers - Rustine Leonard on bass, Andrew Kissel on keys and vocals, Tyler Jack on guitar and vocals, and Austin S on drums - combine indie-rock chops with Kissel's broad strokes of Hammond organ and Wurlitzer piano. Not to be pigeonholed as alt-folkies, the group also displays a penchant for Built to Spill-sized guitar solos and actually good harmonies.The exclamatory Thunder Power!!! is a female-fronted, indie-pop sextet from Omaha that should be tops with fans of Belle and Sebastian and Camera Obscura. Besides occasionally busting out a recorder solo, the band enjoys drinking and fighting amongst themselves. They'll be joining by fellow Omahamaniacs Capgun Coup and a band called F*ck Fest from f*ck-knows-where.
