The next day I got up early and headed down the street for a little local festival parade that the kids were appearing in, then it was another late night down at Kabal for some Frisky fun with local legend DJ Pat Nice.
Rinse and repeat, for another early morning and a full day out at the Renaissance Festival. One of the kids was an actor during the season. It was quite a bit of fun, and we mused over all there was to offer from beginning to end, then down to the Beach Club for a little DJ Battle I found out about at the last minute. It was really kind of a charade, if I recall correctly. There was no scoring, just whomever got the loudest cheers. Seemed a little silly to me, so I vowed to do it up right the next chance I got.
I dropped in Evolution a couple of times, but attendance was relatively flat. The same was true for a new Thursday night at Segafredo with Steve Thorell. That one showed a little more promise, but then again Davey's was always kind of a hit-and-miss on Monday nights. They were, and probably still are, a terrible night for events in Kansas City.
Another new weekly popped up mid-Month at Kabal, Ritmo promised to serve up some of the best DnB/Jungle on a regular basis. There was a good showing of support, but not a lot otherwise. I am not sure how long that event ran, but I do have a couple of more related sets of photos.
Along with several other artists, my photos made an appearance at a showing at Kabal the next night. It was quite a bit of fun for everyone involved, but a little nervy the way some of the folks were leaning all over everything. We were supposed to leave stuff up for a week or something like that, but I think most of us removed our stuff after that night.
Later in the month, I stopped in for a quick birthday wish to DJ AmJanda, while Kourtney bounced out to St Louis for Booty Halloween. It looked as though she had a blast, and probably more fun than anyone back home.
That same night in Kansas City, I dropped in on a party VJ Ones threw down at that dirty little place on Guinotte. The music was good, and quite a few came out in support, but poor promotion ensured the night would fall somewhat flat. We all had a great time though, and it was the perfect warm-up for what was left in the month.
The highlight of the month, and the party everyone had been waiting for, landed Halloween night at a relatively new space down in the West Bottoms. Inhibitions were lost, and musical nirvana attained in the costumed fray that was Phreakz! II. It was not quite the insane event the original had been, but no less fun. The sequel is never quite as good as the original anyway.
Until the next round is ready... keep the fire burning!
