For electronic dance music to work in a concert setting – as a live spectacle that you would actually pay concert prices to see – the bar, in my mind, is pretty high. You need good mixes and well-wrung beats, sure, but the music can’t stand on its own – especially seeing as it’s […]

The weekend consisted of a Celebrity Wiffle Ball Tournament on Friday, June 23rd at Kauffman stadium before the Royal’s vs. Cardinals game (see photo gallery below), Saturday morning was The Big Slick […]
Chris Pine and Elizabeth Banks have a new movie out Today, “People Like Us”. And while it’s not the worst movie I’ve ever seen, it’s absolutely nowhere near the best. Chris Pine plays Sam, who, when we first meet him, seems to have everything going for him. He works facilitating barters and in the opening […]
“Pete” from The League, “Nick” from New Girl, and “April” from Parks and Recreation all in one movie. What’s not to love already?? I’m sure the actors would not like reading that I am labeling them as their most popular roles, but let’s be honest, those are some great role predecessors to their characters in […]
Upon seeing the trailer for Seth MacFarlane’s first foray into film writing and directing, “Ted”, a few months ago, I immediately thought to myself, “Oh man, this is going to be great.” Ladies and gentlemen, let’s give Seth MacFarlane a giant round of applause.

A movie about male strippers starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey? Something told me not to take this one too seriously. Oddly enough, (I mean, who could have seen this coming?) it was a great idea to not go into the theater expecting much of anything, because boy, oh boy, not much of anything is exactly what I got out of it.
Kansas City’s Crossroads got glamorous Monday. Rapper Rye Rye and Electro rockers Scissor Sisters performed together at the outdoor venue and photographer Scott Spychalski captured the event. Check out his photos!
Love her or hate her, Lana del Rey knows how to get people talking about her.
Her new video “National Anthem” will definitely be another discussion provoker with her portrayals of famous historical figures Jackie O, Marilyn Monroe and more. Starring opposite of her is ASAP Rocky acting as figures such as JFK.
Locals who missed the Heartless Bastards’ show at Lawrence’s Granada Theater on May 29 will get another chance to see the rootsy Cincinnati rock band late this summer. The Bastards recently tacked on eight additional September dates to their summer tour, including a stop in Kansas City for a show at the Riot Room on […]
Does anyone else’s idea of perfection consist of dancers waltzing and twirling around a stage set to the background of Adam Levine’s falsetto ringing through the air? Just me? Awkward. Please appease my whimsical mind and let’s pretend we live in a world where music is judged by its dancing quality, or in other words, […]
Chicago’s Wicker Park was the place to be this warm weekend as it hosted the free Green Music Fest.
