It features more than 120 bands from the Midwest. The Midcoast Take Over began in 2010 as a group of musicians and music lovers gathering for a Kansas City-focused showcase at the nation’s largest music festival in Austin, Texas – South by Southwest. The showcase has grown into a four-day, two-stage event. Taking musicians to Austin reflects attention back on the vibrant music scenes in Kansas City and throughout the Midwest. This weekend you can help send local bands there to perform. Chris Meck and The Guilty Birds explain what the fundraiser is all about.
