It's graduation weekend and it's depressingly cold outside. What's going on this weekend besides massive traffic jams at 23rd and Louisiana?
Wakarusa Fest is dead but Festy Fest lives on in the woods outside LFK. The hippies took to the frigid woods last night for the pre-party.
Let's hope the Replay kicks the patio lamps and fire pit into high gear for their weekend patio events: B-Side Players tonight and Spring Into Summer tomorrow. As near as we can tell, the only media outlet covering the B-Side Players big 20 year anniversary tour is INK KC.
Our friends in Wells the Traveler are at the Jazzhaus tonight. And 40 Watt Dreams is having a CD release there on Saturday. These are very good bands. Apparently very good bands are playing at the Jazzhaus again these days.
There's a staged reading at Theatre Lawrence on Saturday. We don't know anything about it, but there are some talented folks involved, including Kip Niven, who can currently be seen in Kevin Wilmott's Jayhawkers.
Wye Oak is at the Granada on Saturday with Braids opening. It'll be good. Has Granada slacked off on social media lately, or do we just not pay attention very well?
And there's a Tom Petty tribute band at Frank's on Saturday. We can't find any real info or a flyer. We think it might be the Magentlemen? If so, it'll kick ass.
