The rumors are true. The one and singular David Wayne Reed will return to the Podium of Power for the second year in a row as host of this year's Pitch Music Awards Ceremony on Sunday, August 16, at the Uptown!
David Wayne will explicate sexyback. He will discourse upon the ontology of membrane insanity. He will interpret the Lacanian gaze through rose-colored glasses of metal fury. He will palpitate his shingaling and parse your rainbow in the dark. And when he asks Que Pasa, Morena? you will cry out Tu! Tu! (or possibly Hoy! Hoy! because I really don't know what that phrase means). In any case, DWR will. Blow. Your. Fucking. Mind. Comma. Dawg. And he will also give out the awards to the winners of all 21 categories of the music awards. (VOTE!)
As for the musical entertainment, taking the stage at various points throughout the evening will be local acts...
Come to the ceremony just to watch DWR and those bands kick it: $5
Come to the ceremony and hob-nob beforehand and eat and drink with the Kansas City rockerati (a.k.a. "VIP"): $20
Busk outside on the street because your band didn't get nominated: $7, plus we get to laugh and throw bags of leprosy at you.
Come to the VIP and the ceremony and go home with DWR: Unless your last name is Trump or Budweiser, you can't afford it, bitch!
Tickets for the first two items above can be purchased at the Uptown (816-753-8665) or the Pitch office (816-561-6061). The VIP party starts at 6 p.m.; ceremony begins at 8.
