On November 3rd, the Bros will celebrate a hometown release of our brand new self-titled, 8-song EP at The Brick Bar in KCMO. Our good friend and fellow songwriter Grady Keller from Old Sound will open the show followed by the magical dream pop duo Spectator from St. Louis. It's an early dinner show for the whole family and starts at 7pm. Can't wait to hear the new tracks? We've got just the thing for you! Mikal put together a video for our song "Almost Ready," a sweet little co-write about domestic life. She found some footage from a 60s "nudie cutie" in the public domain and thought it would compliment our hokey folky love fest perfectly. Let us know what you think!
"They aren’t a sibling act. But they are a Kansas City duet — Mikal Shapiro and Chad Brothers — who write jazzy songs and sing in the kind of keen harmonies that siblings are famous for. Their guitar interplay is equally impressive." - Kansas City Star
"Smart folk with beautiful harmonies. Fans of Neko Case and Dave Rawlings Machine will appreciate their eclectic chemistry." - Westport Roots Festival

Our annual benefit concert was founded in response to Kansas City musician Abigail Henderson’s cancer diagnosis, which prompted her friends and fellow musicians to raise money for her healthcare expenses. The first concert marked the birth of the Midwest Music Foundation, an organization dedicated to supporting musicians who lack proper access to health care. The event features live performances by notable Kansas City-area bands as a donation of their time and talents to their community; local businesses and artisans donate products and services to the event for auction. All monies raised during Apocalypse Meow go directly to Abby’s Fund for Musician’s Health Care and the production coasts of Apocalypse Meow. Performances, business donations, and services are purely voluntary.
