There's a big music festival in midtown on Wednesday night



There's a new local radio station in town, Flood FM, and the night before Thanksgiving, six venues are hosting 30 (30!) bands to help spread the word about it. Flood FM's aim is to connect local artists and fans by providing digital tours of the service's online radio stations. Money collected at the festival will go to help launch the online music community.

Says Jenny Jones, Flood Fest coordinator: "The radio station is being developed by a team of people right here in Kansas City. Josh Nelson is one of the heads of the operation. Josh and I are the ones planning the festival together. The radio is an equal-opportunity station and will feature all types of unsigned bands of all genres."

Flood Fest will run from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. Wednesday, November 21. Venue and band schedule after the jump.
