Westport Meltdown 

Wednesday, July 7, at America's Pub.

Somewhere in the depths of the periodic table of elements -- beyond uranium, plutonium, and the mighty lawrencium -- is the heaviest of all the metals: Kilroyium. Its namesake -- local promoter Jim Kilroy -- is the stubborn smelting pot for all things hard and heavy in Kansas City rock. And now the man who brought you Club Wars and the Kansas City Rock and Metal Fest goes nuclear again with the latest edition of his Westport Meltdown. Eleven regional bands, including Everybody's X, Dbltap (pictured), Kung Fu Cowboys and the Koala Bear Syndrome, have been entrusted with the task of playing three songs apiece during a one-off that promises to heat up the dingy core at America's Pub for one night only. With a little luck, the resulting mushroom cloud of toxic radiation will clean up some of the funk in the men's restroom.
