What better way to arrive back in town from Mardi Gras than to find out a little rave had been planned at a new space downtown known as The Stray Cat.  It was a grimy little place, but nobody really seemed to care, and the place turned inside out, throbbing with beats all night long from Pleasurehead, St Marc, Mike Pierce, Blue Skeiz, FitzRoger, Atom Bryce, JD Staley, and Overpour in the Main Room.  In another room, Breakbotix led things off, with support from Mike Scott, Mike McGrath, & cQuence.  Joe helped photograph this one too.

chakra feb.04

Chakra hosted a small preview night down in the West Bottoms prior to their club opening, featuring some local talent.  It was hard to draw folks over though, with an all-out rave going on just a 1/2 mile away.

how memphis got its groove back

Making her way down to Memphis Kourtney shot the place up and learned how Memphis got it's groove back.  She traveled along with a crew of folks heading to see KC local DJ Bobby Duracel play support for a lineup featuring D:Fuse, Dave London, Johnna, as well as Mike J and John Clark.

mardi gras 2004

This set of photos includes  a few from the parades prior to Mardi Gras day from krewes Endymion, Mid-City, Bacchus, and Orpheus.  Mardi Gras day started with a quick morning cocktail at Buffa's, and then a full day roaming the streets enjoying the festivities and costumes all around.  It was a another fabulous day in the Crescent City, and we didn't stop until we found our way back to Buffa's near midnight for a shirtless dance to close out the season.

zoolu 10 all-stars

After Orpheus, there was no better way to spend the rest of the night than partying at the State Palace with the Zoolu All-Stars, featuring Charles Feelgood, Danny the Wildchild, Dieselboy, MC J Messian, Micro, Monk, Nigel Richards, Phantom 45, Tim Walsh's Laser Music, Ballzach, Zach, Trent Cantrelle, and J. Andrew.

We only stayed for a few hours after the parade, but caught up with all of Charles Feelgood, and whomever else was playing upstairs.

zoolu 10

I had waited all spring for this event, and made the 13 hour drive for no other reason really.  Well, that and the All-Stars two nights later.  Zoolu 10 was the place to be just before Mardi Gras and the crowd turned out massively for Fully Cycle featuring Roni Size, Derrick May, Dave Seaman, Miguel Migs, Tortured Soul, Demonix, Oktane, Stryfe, and Cease.  It was truly awesome experience and the best way to kick things off prior to Mardi Gras.

This was definitely the Valentine's Day event to be at, featuring Ming & FS, with support from Ces Cru and Game, DJ Sku, and Oscar Slugworth at The Granada.  Joe covered the event early on while I was interviewing the guys before the show, then let me close the night photos out, so he could just enjoy the show.
