Re: “Brent Tactic steps up with Think 2wice

definitely a ridiculous amount of talent not getting shine in the local press in this kc right now. it's inspiring honestly. because MORE coverage of it by publications like the Pitch will only fuel the creative inspiration and drive of these artists. what does the Pitch really have to lose by getting more dialed in with the current musically creative impulse of this city? it'll only increase the amount of people that pay attention to what they write about...that's for sure.

Re: “Brent Tactic steps up with Think 2wice

It really is great to see a story like this coming from this publication. Kansas City has an incredible amount of amazing local, national, and internationally recognized artists and musicians that do not see the exposure that they deserve. Brent Tactic and the Think 2wice camp are just the tip of that iceberg. Would really be cool to see more stories like this in the near future.

Great read.

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

My band spent a short time sharing a tour with Soul Coughing. There's no way I could know all the inner workings and dynamics of their band, but the Mike Doughty of 2012 seems to never have even met the M. Doughty of 1998.

Hey Mike, here's a psychology term you might want to do some research on: PROJECTION.

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

I would probably hate Mike Doughty's guts too if I was in a band with him. What a loser. To hear him slag off his former bandmates in such a way shows that he still hasn’t taken responsibility for his actions or resolved any of his borderline personality issues. That’s great that he’s no longer a crack head, but he’s still a delusional/arrogant asshole (and a lucky one at that).

To think he wanted to take all the credit for the Soul Coughing sound/songs is pretty ridiculous. Writing a simple guitar riff and putting some nonsensical words to it does not warrant getting complete credit for a band’s sound/songs. Gee, do you think the guy with the Masters degree in composition from the Mannes College of Music had anything to do with it? (Mark degli Antoni, keyboardist/sampler) or the other guys who had been playing for 10 years before they even met this clown with a cool voice?

It’s pretty obvious from listening to his solo mediocre coffee shop pop that Soul Coughing was a collective sound and his personality/rampant drug use made him more of a liability than an asset to the band.

It's so great that this article gets the other side of the story. It's pretty clear who the asshole is.

Re: “Mudstop Mondays is Barnyard's Pool Room party now

From the backyard to The Barnyard, Mike and Heath continue to make great beer and provide great music for all thier friends...and soon to be friends (thats you). Stop by and sample a Rooster Red, or one of Heath's other fine brews, while you catch show. No Show going on...stop by anyway. The beer is still on tap.

Cheers!

Re: “Mudstop Mondays is Barnyard's Pool Room party now

i have followed this open mic for years at different venues. no cover and good music makes mudstomp mondays hard to beat. as for kansas bluegrass, there are many original styles of kansas bluegrass other than the rock infused split lip rayfield variety. these styles take stage every open mic and keep it interesting.

Re: “Mudstop Mondays is Barnyard's Pool Room party now

I have watched this project from conception. The brewmasters, bartenders, FOH techs, musicians, and friends have clearly shown dedication to this venue and perfectly good reason to party on a Monday night. Kansas bluegrass as well as Barnyard Beer are here to stay. Rock Chalk.

Re: “Mudstop Mondays is Barnyard's Pool Room party now

The Barnyard Brewery is growing fast and catching the eyes of people. They have some of the best drink specials in town with no door cover on Monday nights and sometimes even good food. Keep your eyes peeled for Blue Collar Bar B Que a pint of Barnyards finest brews some good looking Barnyard Servers and some of the best damn music in the Mid West.

Re: “Mudstop Mondays is Barnyard's Pool Room party now

Barnyard is rapidly establishing itself as an indispensable member of the acoustic music community. They need our support! Keeping alive the tradition of American folk music by providing a venue for budding musicians is extremely important…and it’s also just a great place to grab a brew (the Porter is my favorite!)

Re: “Mudstop Mondays is Barnyard's Pool Room party now

We really hope to see new faces stop in to see us! This bar offers something that most bars don't. Don't expect to come in and just be another customer. As the Mudstomp Monday bartender, we welcome you with open arms. Stories and laughter are always share. You truly become family to us. We're close knit and always enjoy getting to really know each person who walks in the door. Look out for our awesome whiskey specials too!..after all, we love our brown juice in these parts.
