Kansas City’s Power & Light District has been packed with music fans all summer looking for a reprieve from the heat with good music and a cold beer. Canada’s Metric was the latest band to join in the free music summer series in the entertainment district with San Francisco’s Panic Is Perfect opening.
Less than two years after a snowy night in Cleveland gave birth to a friendship, a band and a hit song all in the same night, SomeKindaWonderful already has the vibe and assuredness of a band in command of its sound and its direction.
“Despicable Me 2” is at least a notch below its parent film, but with the same directing (Pierre Coffin, Chris Renaud) and writing (Ken Daurio, Cinco Paul) teams as the first one, it’s in the same ballpark of enjoyability. Fans of the first “DM” won’t be disappointed.
