• HAVES: KC/Lawrence (& more) Music: L-Z

    1. This is a journal containing bands and albums I have recordings from on my computer. Though I try to support local music as best as I can by attending shows and buying albums, not all of this music I am in direct physical possession of through purchase.
    2. Not all of the bands below are directly from the KC/Lawrence area. Other cities and towns I keep in this collection are Topeka, KS, Columbia, MO, Wichita, KS, Warrensburg, MO, Manhattan, KS, and a few other, more rural areas of the region. Essentially, it contains everything east of and including Wichita in Kansas, and everything west of and including Columbia in Missouri.
    3. In addition to the previous point, you will notice that not all of the bands here are current residents of the region. Many bands (Mates of State, White Rabbits, etc.) unfortunately decided to move away to a larger metro area. Others (The Appleseed Cast, Namelessnumberheadman), were started in different regions and then relocated here at some point, usually early in their career. …

  • Lyrics Quiz--The Ashes Will Scatter

    Apr 13 2007, 3:19 di alfvaen

    Here's another lyrics quiz, still from my favourite songs selection. At least one artist is on here more than once.

    More than I can hold in my hand
    Running through the gaps like water

    Love is not too logical, hearts are not infallible you know
    Mine is working overtime to save me from your eyes

    The more I know, the less I understand
    All the things I thought I'd figured out, I'm learning again
    The Heart Of The Matter

    The more we think we know about, the greater the unknown
    We suspend our disbelief, and we are not alone
    Mystic Rhythms

    So I got myself on a streetcar and it drove right into someone
    The driver said, "I was looking straight ahead!"
    My Baby Loves a Bunch of Authors

    For the Nobel Prize, atoms in disguise
    Dressed like electrons, speak through microphones
    The Particle Song

    Well I ain't got no money, I'm just walkin' down the road
    Said I ain't got no money, I'm just walkin' down the lonely ol' road

    Clouds and eclipses stain the moon and the sun
  • Concerts I Have Seen

    Lug 28 2006, 16:00 di PMaz

    OK, my friend Lee (therolemodlin) made a list about a month ago and so I decided to sit down and write what I can recall seeing. By no means do I claim to have seen a lot of concerts, although I am sure I am forgetting someone. But here is what I remember as close to chronological as it gets.

    Starship/Night Ranger - This is probably the first major concert I saw. I believe I was in 9th grade. Night Ranger was touring for 7 Wishes and they were the real reason I went. My friend Dave was along at the time, along with my sister and her husband. We were too young to drive there I guess. I bought one of those shirts with 3/4 sleeves and had the band on the front. Probably cost me a week's worth of pay.

    The Rainmakers - This was Nathan's favorite band at the time and Casey, Nathan, and I journeyed to the University of Kansas to see them play in some ballroom. A totally different experience. I would see them again at a Kansas State Welcome Back concert.
