A few days later, one of two fantastic events hosted by DeepFix Records, that month turned out even more. The second in the Designer History series featured two huge names in counterbalance with one another. The entire night was crazy, with the main stage held up starting with local sounds from DJs Danny Ward and Joe K, before being taken over by Deep House sensation Tim Shumaker from Chicago. Tim kept the groove moving along solid until my personal favorite, Techno giant Gaetano Parisio from Naples, Italy took the stage to roll out the rest of the night. An additional room featured local up and coming Drum and Bass talent, Sara Lee, Ben Fuller, cQuence, and Krillin, along with Traci Dub, just in from Warrensburg. Folks everywhere where dancing hard, sweaty and with an intensity rarely noted elsewhere in the city; a fine night indeed.
The date 4/20 spawned other events too. The night before Soul Glow saw a return to what I will likely continue to refer to simply as the ATM; not because of cost or anything like that, but it is shorthand, and the host will easily recognize it. This was the second in a line of what would be rather infamous house parties, and the photos were quite a lot of fun, and I got chance to meet a few more new DJ faces, like Synnister and then NastyNate; later Frooky. The day after that house party, but before Soul Glow, was another odd little even known as the 420 Olympics. It is probably best to leave the line-up of activities for that particular show to the imagination. There were a few photos, which are now relegated to the "randomness" album.
The remainder of the month was not quite as intense, but no less fun. We returned to Club Evos a couple of more times; once to celebrate a birthday for local DJ Malcolm816. That was a night utter drunken silliness. There was also a return to the regular old Monday night full of cheap drinks and good music, which again, had become The Standard for Local Underground Sounds in Kansas City, at Club Evos; the quaint dirty little hole on the corner of James & Central we all loved so well.
