The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, Kansas City's newest and most-anticipated live-music venue and skyline addition, still has several months to go before the two-day grand opening on September 16 and 17. But the Kauffman Center Encore group isn't letting that stop the new center from getting in on some summertime celebrations, and thus is kicking off a grand-opening season this Saturday by sponsoring Throwback 2011.
The event, which will take place at The Terrace on Grand/Luna Nightclub (1520 Grand), will feature a mix of jazz music and modern electronic beats, courtesy of DJ Scott Kaiser. Also on hand for the fête galante will be the Burlesque Downtown Underground and spoken word poetry from Glenn North. So bust out your cocktail dresses and your drinking jackets and get downtown for some speakeasy punch and smooth conversation.
