NYC blogger Brad Walsh thinks Kansas City is the "New New York City." Why? Because we spawned the Republic Tigers, Alicia Solombrino, the Ssion and "20 or so transplanted club kids with more original style than I've seen around here in a long time." Walsh made his bold claim in a May 27 post on his blog at junk-mag.com. Also in the post: a bunch of artsy pics he took of Solombrino and streams of "Touch Me" by the Beautiful Bodies and "Buildings and Mountains" by the Republic Tigers. A second post features "Golden Sand" by the Republic Tigers.

Just who the fuck is Brad Walsh, though? He's a photographer and founder of Junk Magazine, an indie hipster culture rag that went all digital in 2005. Walsh's other claim to fame is being the boyfriend of Project Runway dude Christian Siriano. None of that makes Walsh's opinion worth that much -- but, hey, it's nice to see well-connected out-of-towners lovin' on our city and its almost famous peeps.
