Hadiza is a Kansas City-based artist who has been playing music for most of her life. Despite this, it wasn't until last year that she released her first full-length album. Shadow Weight is a record that achieves exceptional levels of depth, both lyrically and musically, weaving together themes from African traditional religions and Hadiza's own personal life, set to an eclectic mix of soul, blues, folk, and jazz instrumentation.

Sittin' Down, Talkin' 'Bout It is a new comedy/talk podcast from Shuttlecock hosted by Sophie Hart and Amanda Roseman. This dynamic DIY scene duo will be interviewing local musicians and showgoers about music and topics far more wacky and gross (this podcast is NSFW, unless your boss is cool as hell). Be on the lookout for appearances from some special characters, too. Wish you had cool rocker friends to hang out and drink beers with? Just tune in to SDTBI every two weeks to pretend like you do! Guests on this episode included Speed (Tommy Sanders a.k.a. Chuck, Bennett Weaver, Jude Cash, and Jack Marsh played by Jacob Martella), Gurt (vocalist of St. Louis punk band Dentist), and friend of the pod Rocky. Discussion included visiting the Gateway Arch, making out with your bandmates to piss off homophobes, puking in your family's minivan after doing some underage drinking, shaving one half of your body, and, of course, another contentious game of Hot or Not. Intro music: Born To Be Wild by Speed Sponsored by the Vinyl Underground at 7th Heaven, offering new and used vinyl at 76th and Troost in Kansas City, Missouri.
