Krist Novoselic has some nice pants, too.
Apparently, when the Fray played the Midland a few weeks back, the opening act was a band called Gravy and the Biscuits. G and the B are from Nashville, and while they were in town, they filmed a music video for their song, "Sauced." The song sounds like Black Keys if they spliced in hip-hop verses, and the video is a jokey dance-competition thing. The footage leans heavily on Plaza landmarks, and the closing scene takes place on the lawn at the Nelson-Atkins. Maybe it's something you're interested in watching; maybe it's not something you're interested in watching. Look, nobody's judging anybody here.
Wayward Blog gets a lot of press releases, but few have as much spunk as this one.
I received the following press release yesterday and wanted to share it because it made me chuckle, and chuckles are hard to come by these days. (Seriously. Just click over to The Plog.)
Subject: What's rarer than the Hope Diamond?
(A bar that doesn't serve Pabst? A DJ who spins original tunes?)
Body: An Elvis sighting? NO!! A Brooklyn band actually FROM Brooklyn!
(Oh, ho! They got me. Haha! Ah ...)
It would be really awesome if the metro had a legitimate claim on any of the artists nominated in the popular Grammy categories this year. Alas, even cheesy and puzzling candidates Lady Antebellum (Album of the Year??!!) and Michael Buble (Best Male Pop Vocal Performance) hail from hamlets other than Kansas City and its surrounding areas.
Thankfully, the Recording Academy recognizes the stars of all kinds of music scenes, even opera. And that's where the metro comes in.
Scottish noise-masters Mogwai will follow-up their recent live album and DVD with some tour dates in support of their sublimely titled new album, Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will. The release is due on Feb 15, 2010 on Sub Pop. They're not coming to Kansas City (dammit), but they're coming to Omaha on April 30 to make the Slowdown rumble off its foundation.
You missed this one: On Nov. 5, according to law enforcement officials, the wife of…
Happy Birthday Frank!! Have a blessed day!
@barkerr No. I typed the phone conversation as we had it, and missed that shorthand…
Well, it's a catch-22 situation isn't it? Why should public schools be able to use…
That last part sounds a LOT like a state version of the federal Hatch Act…
