Pop Free Radio Showcase
Kansas City-based Internet radio station Popfreeradio.com hosts monthly showcases at the Brick, and Thursday’s lineup of Joe Firstman, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin and the ACB’s makes a strong case for tuning in. Firstman hails from Los Angeles, but his easygoing, acoustic sound is more Midwest than SoCal, with its chilled-out feel that recalls both Harry Nilsson and Ray LaMontagne. SSLYBY makes the long trek from Springfield, Missouri, where the immaculate pop act has been working on a follow-up to its acclaimed second album, Pershing. Local anchors the ACB’s kick the party off with some handsome new jams that are anything but Pop Free.
