Looks like I have some congrats to give to the owners of the Beaumont, Karma, Westport Beach Club and Grand Emporium. They've hired someone who's actually cool and in touch with the local scene. Her name: Cat Simpson. I run into her several times a week out and about, and so I personally know how super neato she is. Witness this posting from the Myspace she set up for her clubs:
This week I started my new gig doing a variety of jobs for the 4 clubs featured on this page, Beaumont, Beach Club, Grand Emporium, and Karma.
I am currently working on taking over booking duties for Grand Emporium, so feel free to contact me via myspace or send a press pack to the address on the main page under "who I want to meet". I am really looking forward to incorporating the eclectic KC music scene into a such a great venue.........stay tuned for exciting changes to the GE schedule.
Also, KARMA. This place is brand new and ready to get a little dirty! You probably don't know it, but they serve GOOD food til 11 (i think) and there is a great drink selection served by the hottest ladies in town. Right now we have some great local DJs (Rico, Metal Mark, Thorell, and Cyan) spinning regular weekly gigs (check the calendar on the main page!!), but look for some other xxxciting additions to the weekly roster......coming soon!
AND......if you're looking for something different to do in KC on a balmy summer night, hit up the Beach Club. It's a welcome change of pace to do some outdoor drinking with more local DJs spinning the tunes and hard bodies playing sand volleyball (again, check the schedule).
Did you catch that? "I am really looking forward to incorporating the eclectic KC music scene into a such a great venue." Um, fuck yeah, Cat!
Tonight brings Sonic Spectrum host Robert Moore, spinning eclectic beats at Karma, while Se�or Oz builds his exotic, Afro-Latin-funk-framed sonic tent over the Beach Club. And while you're out, drop by Buzzard Beach for the crazy-ass dance party they got going on there after midnight.
Having fun in Westport on a Wednesday night -- who would've thought it possible. Here's to you, Cat!
