Keeping the Beat 

If you're not into drumming, Wes Faulconer's shop at 8050 Wornall might have escaped your attention for the past two and a half decades. "We pretty much sell A-to-Z percussion equipment," Faulconer says, meaning that Explorers Percussion stocks standard rock-and-roll cymbals and drumheads, gear for high-school drumlines, and exotic shakers and skins from Brazil to Africa. The shop has earned a national reputation and serves some huge names in the realm of rhythm. Three — Tool drummer Danny Carey, Missing Persons and Frank Zappa drummer Terry Bozzio and Indian drum master Aloke Dutta — are in the area today to help celebrate the shop's 25th anniversary. The three lords of the beat perform individually and together from 2 to 6:30 p.m. at Shawnee Mission South High School (5800 West 107th Street in Overland Park). Order tickets at explorersdrums.com for $20, or pay $5 more at the door. Call 816-361-1195 for more information.
Sat., Sept. 19, 2-6:30 p.m., 2009
