Local boys Alien Jones wooed the replay Thursday night with their indie harmonies and warm vocals. Actors and Actresses out of KCMO hit the distortion hard and played their driving shoe-gaze rock with beautiful musicianship. Maps For Travelers capped the night as true rock stars, destroying the stage after their deafening post-hardcore set. These pros brought their own light set up, ran out into the crowd multiple times, and basically killed it.
