Re: “Going off the grid with five scene players at their favorite low-key venues

Calling someone is a "hipster" when you don't like something is the easy way out. Start your own publication, open your own venue, host your own event, anything but complain anonymously on the internet about people doing things you don't know or actually give a shit about

Re: “Cowboy Indian Bear's latest release wouldn't have happened without a mishap

Did they get the "frozen yogurt" at Grinder's? Because if they did, I think it's probably my product that Grinder's sells - Foo's Fabulous Frozen Custard. It ain't yogurt...

Amazing lyrics and sound. These guys are true musicians. You'll realize how empty your life has been after you hear them live.

Re: “Going off the grid with five scene players at their favorite low-key venues

I quit going to Kenny's Newsroom in the late 90s. I used to shoot pool in the backroom. Are all the classic KC dive bars turning into hipster joints??

Re: “Going off the grid with five scene players at their favorite low-key venues

@LarryDavid: Just as a general FYI, Mac Lethal is not the only hip hop artist we've covered. In fact, here are a couple recent ones:

Gee Watts: http://www.pitch.com/FastPitch/archives/20…

Stik Figa: http://www.pitch.com/FastPitch/archives/20…

I'll be the first to admit that there is only so much room every week for so many artists doing great things, but that doesn't mean we are actively ignoring artists based on - per your insinuation - race or genre.

Re: “Going off the grid with five scene players at their favorite low-key venues

Can we get some hip hop coverage in this bitch? Natalie Gallagher will cover a punk rock house show but turns her nose up to local rap music. One of the few times she wrote about a show, she trolled it by putting the words super-group in quotations before the group's name ( Yawn Johnson). We're not dumb, but sadly we are used to disrespect. This city has a lot of talent. Ces Cru/Strange Music producer Info Gates just released a new album (Make things,do stuff) last night! And Brett Gretzky, Dutch Newman, and the Abnorm all released classic albums within the last year. If you want, I'll buy and mail you copies of all three. I guarantee you'll like Brett Gretzky, because they're not only talented but white. I'm not even a part of the local scene, but it's fucking disgusting how little respect this paper shows to the most talented musical artists this city has to offer. Mac Lethal on Ellen does not count as hip hop coverage. The only reason I read this hipster doofus article is because Britt Adair is a nice person. Going off the grid? Jesus! Put down your hula hoop and do some reporting that doesn't involve your own social circle and comfort zone, because contrary to popular misconception - black people and hip hop Stans do read.

Re: “Barry Lee shakes things up at KKFI 90.1

I wish Barry well. His is one of the few shows I will make an attempt to listen to. Its an example of what a DJ can add to a show.
KKFI is a dinosaur; old people playing old music to old people. The DJ's and the audience are dying off, and a lot of the music died a long time ago. I hope the Board listens to Barry, even when he's stepping in their territory.
KKFI has a lot of possibilities. It hasn't any competition. The AAA the Bridge plays is the most banal format ever; and I don't even need to talk about commercial radio. But I turn KKFI off more than I turn it on. Endless blather of public affairs mornings and evenings, and Saturday afternoons are a complete waste, then Tex-Mex, R&B and blues doing the same boring covers over and over. Most of the songs are: "I'm in love, he/she makes me high/hot or breaks my heart." Two verses, lead plays the melody line, chorus or refrain, then climax, played with I, IV, V chords. Please, local song-writers, don't you think listeners are smart enough to see the laziness this shows. Nothing more than templates to fill in the blanks.
Two of the best shows are Dr Mike's classical radio show and Tom Crane's world sound; especially Dr Mike's, because he plays contemporary works composed today.
Maybe Barry would want to consider adding well-engineered You-Tube clips of their live shows. Canned music tends to be dull. Music isn't any different than stage or dance; it needs to be visually experienced. A good example of using video is NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series, one of the best shows on the radio.
