Great interview. Jordan's a great guy. I wish HS all the success they can handle.

Re: “Streetside: Kanrocksas hits the self-destruct button

This is stupid but interesting. Just because 2011 fell well short of anticipated sales, it was a fun and good festival, it did come out of nowhere and could have been a building block to establish something. I thought the reasoning for no 2012 show was the construction at the Legends. They always said they'd be back for 2013 (article does not articulate this). So, they had to knock it out of the park in 2013 to establish credibility. They did not. It would have been nice for KC to have a yearly event like this.

Dancefestopia Music Festival... electronic like Kanrocksas, hip-hop like Kanrocksas, 40+ local artists unlike Kanrocksas, but no mention in the article? It's a Kansas City music festival. http://Dancefestopia.com for reference

Re: “Streetside: Kanrocksas hits the self-destruct button

At least you guys are only charging $10 to see Everclear, Sponge, Live and Filter. Was Better Than Ezra not available?

Maybe he and Robert Moore can have a turntable duel.

Re: “Hot Club of Cowtown singer and violinist — and KC native — Elana James on her band's latest, Rendezvous in Rhythm

What makes me cringe is this quote. "I think this creepy obsession with new, new, new, personal 'I wrote it' stuff is a kind of plague on American traditional music". Huh? This is disrespectful to those who write original roots music. There's nothing wrong with doing standards but does she have to insult those who are forging their own path and choosing to write their own music?

@William

Delta blues? ...no. Pokey Lafarge mostly plays western swing, with elements of hot jazz and blues, and is infatuated with Steinbeck. I thought it was analagous to this interview because Elana said that "Our music basically sounds like if you were out driving in Texas during the late 1930s" which would be right in LaFarge's wheelhouse. His band also dresses up in the style of that time period

Great interview. You don't describe "Hot Club's" music, you experience it. We can't wait to travel to Texas from New York, each year, to "experience" Hot Club @ The Continental. The first time I heard them, I closed my eyes and tried to figure out who they sounded like. After the 4th tune, I gave up. Elana isn't Nataile Mc McMaster, Whit isn't Tony Matola and Jake has no equal, period. Now put them together and the chemistry is pure fun and musical heaven. Can you tell, I'm a true fan?
