In the last year, Kansas City's Republic Tigers have toured Britain with Travis and the U.S. with Nada Surf, performed on the Letterman show, been featured on iTunes, and cracked the elusive commercial-radio charts. In short: they've "arrived." Thanks to hella spins on the Buzz and viral word-of-mouth, the group's success outside of KC is mirrored in its hometown. Whereas you might have caught the group alongside 50 people two years ago, you'll likely have to wait a bit longer for a drink this time around. Consider a bourbon press or another classy cocktail to accompany the Tiger's intricate and flavorful blend of rock, pop, and electronic sounds. And don't miss longtime scenesters Be/Non—who just released their first proper record ("A Mountain of Yeses") in 11 years—and newcomers Pet Comfort.
