The Midwest Music Foundation’s showcase, Midcoast Takeover, raged all week at Austin’s Shangri-La. Friday night was no exception when KC boys Clairaudients took the stage after going on a mini-tour, stopping in Tulsa, Ok to play at The Shrine.

The moody darkness of their songs was an interesting foil to much of the indie-pop stylings of the Midcoast Takeover. To hear more of these guys head over to their Reverbnation site, and don’t miss them at Middle Of The Map Fest at The Riot Room, April 6th.
