blo prom night


The Empire Room turned inside when the weekly event BLO hosted their first prom night party. Everyone was dressed to kill, some even more so than others, with DJ Two Heavy behind the decks banging out the beats.

war protest on the plaza


As hostilities in Iraq intensified, protesters gathered on the Plaza to make their voices heard, so we dropped in for a few photos of the festivities.  There was quite a good turnout, but probably not quite enough to get the attention of those in DC.

kc st pats day 2004


In addition to numerous photos of the parade, this set includes a bit of wandering around, in and out of the parade route and oither nearby streets of Kansas City during the annual St Patrick's Day parade.  There was quite the police presence for whatever reason (likely ongoing hostilities in Iraq), coupled with reminders of incidents in previous years, and they were out in force to ensure everyone's safety... along with a few leprechauns.

snake saturday parade 2004


We dropped in for a look at the Snake Saturday Parade in North Kansas City for the first time.  A couple of participants were our primary interest, and it was good to chill at a plain and ordinary street parade after the chaos of Miami.

dj series: wet edition


Having run into the Afrodisiac krewe the day before, they clued us in on a little poolside gig they were involved with, along with Acid Flyers, just a few blocks down at the Shelborne.  It was the official screening party for the new movie "The Girl Next Door," starring Elisha Cuthbert. We popped in for a bit and caught Monk, as well as Ming & FS and Perry Farrell behind the decks as DJ Peretz.  It was a fun little affair, but camera space was becoming a commodity, so there were not a whole lot of photos, plus we had a plane to catch in the early AM.

tronic treatment


An annual must-see, according to DJ Solaris, we passed the late night and early morning hours with Christian Smith, Mistress Barbara, Marco Bailey, Christian Varela, dancing the whole night away. At one point, we ran into VJ Ones doing a bit of video on the rooftop during Adam Jays set and chilled with him for a minute in the cool Miami evening air.  Otherwise, it was the right front speaker for us all night, and a few photos here and there.

Also on the lineup: Alan Simms, Phil Kieran, Justin Robertson, John Selway, Filterheadz, Jamie Anderson, Matthew Dear, Vladislav Delay (aka Luomo), T-1000, Derek Plaslaiko, Dennis Rogers Bill Patrick, Punisher, Traxx, Mirko Loco, and DJ Alexa.






stir the senses


Somewhere along the way, we got invited to this little upscale event featuring Biz Markie, Doug E Fresh, and Slick Rick.  I really did not get many photos.  It got a bit crowded to do much in that little space.  By the time the after-party with ?uestlove of the Roots got started, it was impossible to move, much less lift a camera.
