Re: “Jeff Tweedy delighted his fans last night at the Uptown

"While a horde of semi-trucks were required to bring in the massive stage and sound construction for Kanye West and his giant performance at the Sprint Center last night, Jeff Tweedy took the opposite route and kept it simple, bringing only himself and two acoustic guitars to the Uptown."

Well, then clearly Tweedy is no "creative genius" like Yeezus is. Just kidding.

I've never really understood the Tweedy/Wilco cult following. I never heard anything from any of them that rose above the level of bland mediocrity.

That being said, one of the ballsiest performances I've ever seen was Dan Fogelberg warming up for Linda Ronstadt and the Eagles at a packed Arrowhead Stadium with nothing but a microphone and an acoustic guitar because his band's bus with all of the band members and their equipment broke down en route.

So I admire any performer who has the balls to bring nothing to the stage but their voice and guitar and entertain a crowd of paying (exorbitant prices) fans and send them away happy.

Re: “Is Oklahoma Joe's the most iconic restaurant in Kansas City?

Oklahoma Joe's doesn't even have any locations in Kansas City. They are all over in Johnson County. Their name pays homage to an entirely different state. Oklahoma Joe's IS NOT a Kansas City BBQ joint. They are an upscale BBQ wannabe that caters to a bunch of dainty JoCo elites who are too frightened of their own shadows to come on down to 17th & Brooklyn in KCMO for some REAL barbeque at Bryant's. Plus, Oklahoma Joe's seating policy SUCKS! Oh, I suppose it's OK if you just have a couple of people. But if you have a group of 20 who want to sit together while they eat you are out of luck and THE STAFF DOES NOT CARE! I ate there once. Never again.
