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.

Kasey has always been great! I am so glad she has got to follow her dreams and make this world a better, more musical place.

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.

Re: “Making Movies celebrates the next phase in its career with an all-day block party

You should probably learn the difference between race and ethnicity. You can be Latino and still be considered white.

Re: “In the early '70s, Kansas City was young, high and horny, and everyone went to the Ballroom

I too grew up at Volker park, what a wonderful time. I remember every Sunday listening to the band's of the time and passing the hat to gather money to help pay the current band. Amazingly, my sister and I would go to see a great rock band at Cowtown Ballroom tripping R asses off on good mescaline. Afterwards we mellow out at Volker Park at nite with other concert gower's throw out the ole sleeping blankets and drink some cheap wine and smoke some pot. Those were the days my friends and I hated too see them come to end! Ahh, youth... Gofast.

All you old KC hippies from the late 60s, early 70s should check out my novel Last One to Kansas City is a Hippie, available on Amazon.com. It's a tragicomedy set in both 1970 and 1993 with KC as the centerpiece. Enjoy!

Re: “Radkey’s opening slot on a major tour is just the ticket

The KC area music scene needs more young bands like Radkey. It seems that the scene is saturated with a bunch of bands whose members are middle aged, or reunited bands from the 1980s and 90s.

They (Radkey) opened for The Stranglers in Chicago last year. Still kicking myself for missing that show.
