More than a decade after his only solo visit to Kansas City -- and 19 years since his band, American Music Club, played its only local date* -- Mark Eitzel is coming back to cry for you.

Since reuniting in 2004, AMC has changed rhythm sections, but Eitzel's low wail remains the same. And the man's songwriting -- bitter laments, scathing self-reproach, acerbic political reprovals -- has only sharpened. No one song conveys the cumulative effect of an AMC album or an Eitzel performance, but check this one out anyway and reserve May 5 on your calendar.
