Event info

 
Outer Reaches is a music festival based in Kansas City that showcases ‘out there’, left-of-center artists pushing boundaries in their respective genre. Regional acts as well as national and international touring acts are a part of the festival’s spirit, celebrating the variety of freethinking music around the globe.

The Friday lineup features a night of dark electronic music. Nebraska’s leather-clad industrial noise / body music project Plack Blague headlines the night, joined by Des Moines, Iowa Halloween-themed synth duo Night Stories. A quintuple of Kansas City artists round out the night: psychedelic synth group Monta at Odds; dark electronic / witchwave project Morgue VVitch; electronic “soulgaze” /“garage disco” outfit Collidescope; queer dark-pop group Boxknife; and mysterious electronic artist, Loqsa.

The Saturday lineup features two warhorses of the Midwest rock music scene; Chicago’s eclectic art rock band Cheer-Accident and Kansas City post-hardcore noise-rock band Season to Risk. Joining them on the night are Los Angeles’ experimental voodoo blues group Peculiar Pretzelmen and another quintuple of Kansas City artists: psychedelic rock group The Moose; twin sister sparkly witch-rock band The Black Mariah Theater; experimental psychedelic indie songwriter Jacob E.chord; looping vocal exorcist She Speaks in Tongues; and experimental dance project Composition of Dance. XO Blackwater provides the video projection / visuals for both evenings.
