When it all goes to shit, grab a banjo [updated]

Posted by on Tue, Sep 14, 2010 at 3:54 PM

Don't fuck with the banjo.
  • Don't fuck with the banjo.

​Fuck rock, paper, scissors: we're all for knife, frying pan and banjo. 

Update: Tuesday, September 14, 3:51PM:  We've found the name of the knife-and-frying-pan wielder: Alexander L. Hilton, age 21. He's been charged with aggravated assault and disorderly conduct. But the question still remains: What band were they arguing about?

Monday night in Overland Park, a man was attacked by a guy wielding two classic weapons: a knife and a frying pan. The dude swung his banjo at the knife-wielder's head. 

Guess who won?

Axl Rose throws tantrum, storms off Dublin stage; sky blue, grass green, sun rises in the east

Posted by on Fri, Sep 3, 2010 at 6:30 AM

This fucking guy.
  • This fucking guy.

According to reports, Axl Rose and his band, which he lamely calls Guns and Roses, took the stage late, dicked around, and then, during second song "Welcome to the Jungle," Rose halted the music to reprimand the audience for throwing water bottles at the stage. 

"Here's the deal: One more water bottle, and we go home," Rose said, like the asshole that he is. The crowd booed, and the band exited the stage. Here, watch.

Tweedy: known curmudgeon.
  • Tweedy: known curmudgeon.

Ted Leo in a Funny or Die video with Paul F. Tompkins, playing Lawrence and Columbia soon

Posted by on Mon, Aug 23, 2010 at 1:10 PM

Ted Leo continues his awesome run of being awesome.
  • Ted Leo continues his awesome run of being awesome.

What we were greeted with today was not an American Idiot-like Broadway-style production, but a music video for Leo's song "Bottled in Cork" that parodies rock-doc musical theater productions like American Idiot. It features comedian Paul F. Tompkins as Reginald VanVoorst, plus cameos by John Hodgman and the guy from Titus Andronicus. It's really funny.

  • Dress like this guy, and you might win a prize

​You've gotta love an event where a 24-oz. "pounder" is handed to you as soon as you waltz through the door.

That's exactly what will happen at Pabst Presents: A Spaghetti Western Death Country Carnival on August 28 at Knuckleheads. As if the title of "Death Carnival" wasn't enough to wrangle your ass down to the East Bottoms, five bands are playing too, including beloved locals Adam Lee and the Dead Horse Sound Company and the Grisly Hand.

Paul Rudd: Kansas Citian, comedian, Bat Mitzvah MC?

Posted by on Wed, Aug 4, 2010 at 6:17 AM

Paul Rudd: Shawnee Mission West, Class of '87
  • Paul Rudd: Shawnee Mission West, Class of '87

Far before Paul Rudd ever slappa'd da bass on the big silver screen, he was air-guitaring his way to stardom here in Kansas City's own reception halls...as a Bat Mitzvah MC. The actor, who is from Shawnee, is currently known for his work with the Apatow crowd in I Love You Man, but he's a veteran in the comedy world (Clueless, Wet Hot American Summer). But, like all great stars, he comes from humble beginnings. Watch Rudd get paid to party professionally with thirteen year-old girls (and rock black shorts and hiked-up tube socks) after the jump.

Posted by on Wed, Jul 28, 2010 at 10:19 AM

​We take pride in reminding you that there's always something better to do on Friday than getting hammered and watching Degrassi on DVD. (That's what we're here for, brah.) This Friday: head to South JoCo (wait for it) to break a kazoo world record. Yes.

Farmers Insurance is putting on a charity event in hopes that more than 5,000 people will be play "Hey Jude" on the kazoo, and that world record will fall for the "largest kazoo ensemble." (What a glorious concept.)

But, wait: during the previews to Inception, there was a preview for Tron: Legacy, which I wasn't aware was coming out. And I certainly was not aware that motherfucking Daft Punk had done the soundtrack for the movie, which is one of the best ideas I've ever heard in my life. Today, some audio samples have surfaced on the web, and they're exactly what you want to hear. Check 'em out here
