SHY BOYS: 

INTRODUCE YOURSELVES! ARE YOU A NATIVE OF KANSAS CITY/SURROUNDING AREAS?

     Yeah, we were all more or less raised in the area.

 

HAVE YOU PLAYED MANOR FEST BEFORE? IF SO, ANY GOOD STORIES/EXPERIENCES FROM PAST FESTS?

     We played years ago when it was just a weekend party at Shawnee Manor, which I think was the Momma’s Boy band house? I don’t remember a whole lot other than it was literally like 105 degrees outside, and hotter in the basement where the music was happening. So everybody was so fucking sweaty and stoney, drinking warm beers because water didn’t seem to be a thing there. The memory isn’t super clear for me, but I remember being around a bunch of folks tripping and screwing around upstairs, while aggressively drunk people are smashing beer cans against their foreheads outside, while like chill pop is wafting out of the basement. Strange place.

 

WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT FOR THIS YEAR’S FEST? CERTAIN ARTISTS? 

      I’m excited to get to play with Dreamgirl again. Our bands seem to be cosmically intertwined somehow, but it’s been awhile since things have aligned. Also can’t wait for Mini Bar on night one with our buddies Paul Cherry and Fullbloods.

 

SHOUT SOME GOOD LOCAL BANDS OUR READERS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT!

        Every local group that’s a part of Manor Fest this year :-)

PALE TONGUE: 

INTRODUCE YOURSELVES! ARE YOU A NATIVE OF KANSAS CITY/SURROUNDING AREAS?

      Hi, we're Pale Tongue. We're all OG Kansas boys but we're based in Lawrence.

 

HAVE YOU PLAYED MANOR FEST BEFORE? IF SO, ANY GOOD STORIES/EXPERIENCES FROM PAST FESTS?

     We have not! We're really eager to dive in this year, especially since we released our debut EP almost 1 year ago with Manor Records, so gotta rep that #manorgang life.

 

WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT FOR THIS YEAR’S FEST? CERTAIN ARTISTS?

     I think we're probably most excited to be playing again with The Phlegms [Fayetteville, AR] and their sister band Bambis. Both bands are absolutely f*cking bonkers and Kansas City definitely needs to know about them.

 

SHOUT SOME GOOD LOCAL BANDS OUR READERS SHOULD KNOW ABOUT!

     The Golden Fleece [Peoria, IL]! They're our best friends and road dawgs and anyone that likes what we're doing will love them. Also Buckle Up Baby from [SPFD/STL] are such a fun time so catch them if you can. Also, every band we mentioned (including ourselves) is playing Day 2 of the fest so you'll have a chance to see everyone all around the West Bottoms!
