Dead Words

Dead Words (Dallas, TX) play East Bay styled pop punk inspired by the likes of Green Day and The Descendants. They’ve been touring heavily for the last few years, fine tuning their guitars to carve their sugar coated hooks into your skull. This young and diverse band enjoys pizza and video games. If you give Dead Words pizza they will give you hugs. If you let Dead Words play your video games they will not sleep. I know this from experience. They served as the backing band on the first Pac-Away Dots tour and this mixtape would not be complete without them. They will be contributing their song “3 for 3” to the kickstarter mixtape.

After about 10 months  Kansas City has grown on me in surprising ways. Here is my list of 5 Things I Love About Kansas City. 1. This is sports town. I get to go to Kansas City Royals games for a reasonable price. I can’t think of a better way to relax after a long day than watching a baseball game. I hope I can make opening day 2014. 2. The art scene is very vibrant here, more than I ever imagined. There is a lot of fine art (world class ceramics, free museums – the Nelson Atkins Museum) and the music scene is small enough that is easy to get to know people. 3. Our friends in Bent Left said this is a town you can make things happen in and I agree. If you want to build something in …
