I made a couple of trips out to Lawrence in February 2003 again. It was becoming routine to make at least one journey out that way. The first, a fantastic show at a venue that should have probably seen a lot more shows than it did, Abe & Jake’s Landing. Hypersonic, a relatively new promotion group was kicking off a new regular Thursday night, this one featuring Kid Icarus. The main room was a great spot, and the adjacent rooms provided a few more unique sounds.
A few shows of the Gothic/Industrial sort littered the rest of the month. Mid-month witnessed an intimate performance by Emergence, who played a fierce set to a small group of folks. A few days later, I dropped in on the Pigface “Easy Listening” CD Release Party, featuring performances from Voodou and Chris Connelly. There was a second round of the rave-style gone Industrial at the El Torreon on too, with a very special performance by Necrovox. Of course, as had become a tradition, I returned to Davey’s at the end of the month for a show from the performance troupe Inferno de L’Impur.
Access to photos from these events is not available through the story archive, which is really the only access point for the photos at this time, and where further detail about these events appears. I am eventually closing down the off-site archive too, but I am bringing back the “collections” in their larger format. Stay tuned.
