Of course, you and your band burn some down at practice. (It makes everything sound better.) But did you know that if you get caught with the sticky icky in Kansas, the penalties for a first-time possession charge can include one year in jail and a $2,500 fine?
Fuck that shit, right? But own that shit, too.
Yesterday on Craigslist we found this ad for 420-friendly musicians:
The gory undead have long been muses for the heroes of punk rock. What better way to inspire local rockers than by donning some fake blood and sinking your teeth into
each other a night of zombie-themed romance?
On Saturday night, the Brick is hosting a party that's bound to be everything your senior prom wasn't. (Thank goodness, right?) Expect your zombie slow dance to have a soundtrack by girl-punk from Cuntalope, post-punk folk from Appropriate Grammar, and ... something from the Claire Katy Pete & Tess Show. (We're not exactly sure what.)
Do you eat, breathe and sleep music? Are you a confident, witty writer? Are you well-acquainted with Kansas City's local music scene? Well, bully for you! You should apply to be an intern for Wayward.
A highlight of last year's Murder Ballad Ball was Tony Ladesich's performance.
To quote myself: "Ladesich and his guitar played beautiful tunes, all originals in fact, except for the Bruce Springsteen cover he closed with. Looking at Ladesich, you'd never think he had such a resplendent voice. 'Dollar General' and 'Bellefontaine' were simple, formulaic songs about murder and vice in the Northeast neighborhood. After three and a half hours of murder music, Ladesich gave a delightful pick-me-up."
This year, I asked him about his creative process when constructing beautiful songs about ugly subjects.

Why lug cans to work when you can lug them to Knuckleheads, pop open a tall boy and rock out instead? The East Bottoms blues venue is hosting Going Hillbilly for Harvester, which brings together five local bands for one night of do-goodin'. Bring ten cans -- or pay ten bucks -- to see Miss Major & her Minor Mood Swings, Outlaw Jim & The Whiskey Benders, Rex Hobart and the Honkytonk Standards, the Fountain City Ramblers and the Slick Brothers.
For a list of what Harvesters needs, click here. It's on Wednesday night.
Prince, the Great Purple One, is hitting the road with our local girl Janelle Monae. (She's from Quindaro originally. Insider tip: Look for a more in-depth story about Monae in this week's Pitch.) He's also bringing along Mint Condition. This is what he said about the upcoming tour at the Apollo Ballroom in New York yesterday:
"If you've been to one of my shows, then you know what time it is," he told a press conference at New York's Apollo Theatre yesterday (October 14). "You need to come early and come often because every time we play it's always something new. I got a lot of hits. Bring friends, bring children, and bring foot spray because it's going to be funky."
