Outer Reaches 2016 Lineup Announced!

Rebranded festival, Outer Reaches, launches this Fall at recordBar

 
 

KANSAS CITY, MO. – The organizers of the Kansas City Psych Fest, an annual live music festival in its fifth year, have announced an official name change, official dates, and lineups for their upcoming two-night event. On Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1, 2016, the festival Outer Reaches will take over recordBar’s new location at 1520 Grand Avenue in Kansas City, Missouri.

 
The festival began in 2012 at FOKL Center, a community art space in downtown Kansas City, Kansas and was organized by Dedric Moore of Monta At Odds, a local psych/experimental indie band. Adding Haymaker Records owner Brenton Cook and recordBar owner Steve Tulipana to the Outer Reaches crew, the trio have sought to include regional acts along with national touring bands. With the fresh moniker as part of the festival’s rebranding, Outer Reaches aims to include music outside the psychedelic genre.

 
“This new vision for the festival is really about experimenting within and pushing boundaries in every genre,” Tulipana said. “We want to showcase the ‘out there,’ left-of-center, under-the-radar bands putting on great shows.”

 
The music of Outer Reaches 2016 will be showcased on two stages over two days at recordBar on Friday, September 30th and Saturday, October 1st. Friday, September 30th will feature the local acts Gamelan Genta Kasturi, Freight Train Rabbit Killer, and Psychic Heat on the first stage, joined by the touring acts Open Fields (Little Rock, AR) and L.A. Witch (Los Angeles, CA). The second stage Friday features the local groups Salty, Youngest Children, Arc Flash, and The Deep End (Brandon Draper & Joc Max). Saturday, October 1st features local acts Emmaline Twist, Michael Angelo’s Dreamfeast, and Be/Non on the first stage, joined by the touring acts Gramps the Vamp (Chicago, IL) and Magic Sword (Boise, ID). Michael Angelo’s performance is just a week after his performance at the POP Montreal festival, marking the first times that he’ll have ever performed the material from his self-titled (and now famously reissued) 1977 album. The second stage Saturday will feature Kimmie Queen & Cody Wyoming, The Tambourine Club, Witch Jail, and HMPH!. Both days will have accompanying video projection provided by Cinemaphonic.

 
Sponsors for this year’s festival include Records With Merritt, Josey Records, It’s a Beautiful Day, 7th Heaven, Sound 81 Productions, Boulevard Brewing Company, Seen Merch, Haymaker Records, and C&C Drum Company.

Outer Reaches 2016

Rebranded festival, Outer Reaches, launches this Fall at recordBar

 
 

KANSAS CITY, MO – The organizers of Kansas City Psych Fest, an annual live music festival in its fifth year, have announced a name change and official dates for their upcoming two-night event. On Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1, 2016, the festival Outer Reaches will take over recordBar’s new location at 1520 Grand Avenue in Kansas City, Missouri. The fresh moniker is part of the festival’s rebranding, with aims to include music outside the psychedelic genre.

 

“The term ‘psych’ was convenient at first, but we’ve found it to be limiting,” said Brenton Cook, owner of Haymaker Records and festival organizer. “We really want to branch out from a particular genre, widening the base for adventurous music.”

 

The festival began in 2012 at FOKL Center, a community art space in downtown Kansas City, Kansas and was organized by Dedric Moore of Monta At Odds, a local psych/experimental indie band. From the beginning, Moore and partners have sought to include regional acts along with national touring bands.

 

“When we started, the intent was to bring a focus to bands and artists that wouldn’t otherwise have a stage or forum,” Moore said. “And we wanted it to be an immersive, interactive multimedia experience. So we’ve always had video projection and visual elements to lend to that idea. We plan to continue that as we move forward into the next phase of the festival’s evolution.”

 

In subsequent years, the festival expanded into other venues, finding a home at recordBar in 2014 and 2015, when recordBar owner Steve Tulipana became involved.

 

“This new vision for the festival is really about experimenting within and pushing boundaries in every genre,” Tulipana said. “We want to showcase the ‘out there,’ left-of-center, under-the-radar bands putting on great shows.”

 

The Outer Reaches full festival lineup will be announced in August and there are plans to host two stages in recordBar’s new space during each night of the event. The artists showcased over the years have been culled from a wide range of talent, with past acts including Gringo Star, White Mystery, Slim Twig, and David Hasselhoff on Acid.
