The Ssion gets arty on Saturday night

​The Leedy Voulkos Art Center's lofts, down in the heart of the Crossroads District, were set aflame with neon and glitter this weekend. Back in town from New York with freshly dyed red hair and his signature makeup, Cody Critcheloe, lead singer of the glam-pop-rock band the Ssion (pronounced "shun"), treated Kansas City's artsy scenesters to a showdown of spandex, polka dots, and teased hair that likely shook the art center.

The show, which opened a little late and began with DJs Norrit and Fire for Effect, got off to a slightly awkward start, as all house shows do, until enough people filled the space and got to drinking and dancing. Critcheloe milled around all night, pre-show, and caught up with old friends and kept the crowd enlivened with his attention-grabbing presence. The only regret was that not enough people dressed to the neon nines and joined in the colorful, sparkling party. Check out some shots from the night below.
