videodrome 4

The fourth in a series of events featuring Dietrich Schoenemann from New York from Danceteria and Communion at Limelight fame.  Local talent Tactic (Ben Fuller & DJ Candlewax) opened the night with DJ Ataxic holding down the upstairs.

An event put on by the video artist v.j. Ones, the event promised a " fully immersive video installation inspired by the marvels of modern technology and multi-media.

For some odd reason, I did not capture but a sliver of that.  It was definitely a fun night of good music though.  One that won't be forgotten soon, since we rarely see Dietrich in Kansas City.


donkey show 6

Dropping in on the Fahrenheit Ballroom for a variety show of sorts, we definitely got a good start to a long evening with a diverse collection of performances.

The lineup featured a host of different acts including Malachy Papers w/ Earl Harvin doing some free-form Jazz, it's over playing acoustic alternative oldies, singer/songwriter Kasey Rausch, Bio-Chi performance artist, The Dirty Q-tips break dancers, Buttermilk Boys Bluegrass, Temper Tantrum burlesque, and IFC Short Films "Love & Mr. Beap," Gilda Lilly doing a little burlesque, a George W Bush impersonator, and the Rocky Flamingo's Fabulous Follies Vaudville routine.

secrets don't make friends

Quite a little lineup for a Knights of Columbus Hall in the southeast part of Kansas City on this night, with Paul Anthony headlining "Funked up house, on 3 decks."

As the flyer says, "There's a reason why Paul is one of the hottest DJs out of Chicago right now.  Just coming back from stop in Bulgaria, Macedonia, and Instabul he has plenty of nwe secrets to share with us during his next visit to KC!

Supporting cast included Anti-Spy, Andrew Boie, Jared Maib vs Kidd-napped, Blue, and another wild night with all the kids new favorite, Timid.  He has been in high demand since Digital Playground.

Between the three of us, we captured just about every moment of the event, and Jason brought a slightly different perspective.  As always, look for more images through the link at the bottom.

essential saturdays on the nineteenth

Some of the bunnies from the party down the street spilled over into this party, which turned out just as wild as the other with DJ Steve Thorell at the helm.

The #bunnies were out, but the billionaires remained to be seen in this set of photos from Kabal in 2005, featuring DJ Ataxic upstairs with most of the action, and Paul DeMatteo holding things down in the basement.

wednesday perk w/ j.phoenix

Stopped in long enough to catch the set by J.Phoenix for slightly different perspective from occasional contributor Sherri.  We must have missed Murderbot and AntiSpy, but had chill short visit at one of our favorite spots.
