Re: “Female DJs in Kansas City: A thriving new species

I'm a female & I was a club DJ in the 70's & 80's there were 2 popular after hours clubs on the KS side, Chapmans in Lenexa & AppleJacks on Merriam Dr in Merriam... I was the house DJ at Apple Jacks aka AJ's for 10 years!!! Back then MO bars weren't open late & people came from all over the metro area to AJ's I was playing the best artist/music of that time ...Michael Jackson, Prince, Kool & the Gang, the Gap band, Whitney, George Clinton lots of funk, R&B soul... what ever you want to call it... if it was funky, I played it all..Apple Jacks was the place to party & I was a big part of that scene .unfortunately I was way ahead of my time because today there's a handful making 6 figures today... so ladies your not a "new species" but keep up the work...radio personalities & many other nightclub jocks back then came to see & hear me & it was the best time of my life: to get paid for having a great time & doing what I loved most, playing great music, packing the dance floor & making people happy!!!

Re: “DJ Ray Velasquez has big plans for Kansas City

Glad to see him back in KC. He exposed me to a lot of massively trippy sounds in the 90s.

Re: “Black on Black, Firebrand (review)

This horrible band is illegal using the Federal Trademark "BLACK ON BLACK" owned by DARGI and the Legendary BLACK ON BLACK Music Coalition from Minneapolis who have been playing on everybody's Albums and Film and Television soundtracks since 1975.

You would think somebody in this band or their management would have thought to do a Trademark Search first before releasing a product illegally under a name someone else has owned and used exclusively for 40 years. I hope these fools have a lot of money because their ignorance is going to cost them a big lawsuit.

Re: “Music Forecast 12.11-12.17: Sean Rowe, Big Band Christmas, Knuckleheads Annual Christmas Show, and more

Dolls on Fire is worth checking out. Surprised there's no mention of Third Party's pre-hiatus show at RecordBar on the 17th. Joplin, MO has given us some amazing music recently.

Re: “Mike Doughty's Soul Coughing demons still haunt him

Just saw the Question Jar Show in Columbus and Mike was a self important douche. I've followed Soul Coughing since the mid 90s and never realized what an asshat he was. He played Columbus in a tiny over crowded club, and I took my wife there for our anniversary. After 20 minutes stuck 5 ft from the door due to too many people, we muscled our way to the side of the stage. I said one thing to my wife (literally "watch some 7ft tall guy come stand in front of us now") and he stopped the whole show to tell me to shut up. I've played hundreds of shows myself on stage, and the crowd was noisey, but never would I think to be so arrogant as to do this. It wasn't like I was screaming out shit during his playing, I honestly said one sentence worth to my wife and he stopped the whole damn thing. Also, his guitar playing sounded like shit in person, often slightly out of tune, and you start to see how little technical ability he has when up close like this. We managed to stick it out, mostly because this was our anniversary and I wasn't about to let this shitbag ruin it for us, but fuck me if I'll ever spend a dime on him again. I've been through the exact same shit with a lead singer/songwriter that refuses to give any credit to the rest of the band that wrote/arranged/produced music for a band, and his entire narrative is bullshit, if you ask me. Wish I would have done more research before I decided to attend this last show, but lesson learned.

Re: “Numero Group excavates Cavern Sound for a new compilation

I spent many an afternoon hanging out there. Listening to bands record. One was doing Fire for a contest on WHB.

Another time a big band was recording a song about Charlie Parker.

I didn't know anybody but they let me hang around as I never got in the way or made noise.

Re: “With its new album, Judas Priest welcomes back its congregation

I bought my ticket to this show months ago. Unfortunetly, it falls on the same day as game one of the World Series. But I'm not missing the Preist. I'll just start out watching the game at the Power & Light and then walk on over to the Midland and see a killer heavy metal concert.
