From Kansas Town to Los Angeles, Hembree can make desire pop appear true


Dreams are difficult currency in pop music.

Fleetwood Mac mines the gap among their sparkling visions and residing, respiration, aching reality, hoping to place goals of loneliness up for auction. The Eurythmics sift sweet substance, declaring goals are created of this — whatsoever “this” is. And to The Cranberries, dreams are a supply of shock “under no circumstances fairly as it looks,” but built manifest in a lover’s existence.

For Hembree, a band whose users stretch from Los Angeles to Kansas City, goals maintain coming real. But as their Irish forerunners testified, they materialize in unconventional, surprising means.

Earlier this month, the band took the stage at Kansas City’s Uptown Theater to enjoy Thundergong!, a advantage for the Measures of Faith Foundation, whose mission is “turning prosthetics into opportunities for uninsured amputees.” Also on the bill: “Saturday Night Reside” alums Jason Sudeikis, Will Forte and Fred Armisen as properly as Wynonna and customers of British band The Darkness.
