Re: Misc Crossroads News

"I don't think Peggy's retaining her lease. There's a rumor that Birdies will also relocate. In the article, the developers claim to be getting 'hate mail' but don't elaborate. Actual reporting would enlighten this- and perhaps Sight Commercial Realty could be more transparent about their vision/pl...

https://cityscenekc.com/kismet-on-18th-street-yjs-reopening-soon/ The new location for the Snack Bar will be 1746 Washington. The restaurant staff themselves are doing a good amount of the finish, interestingly enough. There's a fair amount of personal reportage on people's social media, but no sati...

The article really shorts Ford's pioneering efforts and business savvy. I'm proud of him for going on the record with rare, actual, passionate opinions. Better journalism had better be forthcoming.

Re: Kansas City Music

I'll check out Psychic Heat's recording, I was at their first show in KC at a defunct place called Outpost on the Lower Westside. I could tell then that they were good. I didn't listen to much local music this year, was hoping for a year-end retrospective that might help with the catch-up. First mus...

The Conquerors' - "Wyld Time" Tongues - Self Titled There were a lot of good, small releases. It's hard to say what the "best" was. Unfortunately our world is a hierarchical one and I just need to contextualize my opinion for discussion. If I could give the children a world without rankings and lis...

Lets start compiling a year-end list. The best Kansas City record of the year is Umberto's 'Alienation.' Yes, Umberto now resides and records in LA. Anyone have any contributions?

Re: Kansas City Music

A long-running matinee in town is at the Holy Cow Market and Music at 31st and Cherry. I was in attendance today, in fact, and saw Abandoned Bells. I spoke with an old acquaintance about matinees being more amenable to our current lifestyles than nightlife. So goes Gen X https://www.yelp.com/biz/hol...

Re: Downtown Entertainment

Big demographic changes need to occur before you're getting a 1000-person venue operating weekly shows. Around 200K people need to relocate into the metro, and lets assume 20K of them are interested in nightlife, and maybe half of them are interested in live music. Keep heart, this critical mass of ...

Re: If you HAD to move to the Kansas side, where would you m

Yeah, to be fair, there are a couple of non-freeway routes through the bottoms. But there's no route that you could walk or bike without feeling complete out of place. Partly that's the desolation of the riverfront and the West Bottoms, but it's mostly just the completely car-only design of the con...

Re: Westport's fate post-P&L

Snipping the thread here for one comment. I saw some Facebook chatter regarding Ca Va, today: "If Cava has to close because the city can't keep up with the times..." Anyone know a rumor about this bar closing? Gotta assume its parking-related.

Videos are likely outmoding writing about music in terms of importance to a community. Video is better for the musicians & viewers

Can anyone link to a story, essay, recollection of the Startup Village experience? Its a fascinating concept, curious to know more. I'm not in Tech and couldn't find a way to utilize the place. I thought the day fees were too high
