    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. …

    Sun 15 Mar – The Queers, Poison Arrows, Jetty Boys, The Daniel James Gang

    I am not sure what would possess me to start the week off with a show that is going to run this late, but there I was at Planet on a Sunday night seeing 4 bands. Now don't get me wrong, I do enjoy it, but I am getting too old for this shit when I have to work the next morning (and drive 2 hours in the middle somewhere).

    The first band up was the Jetty Boys. I guess they are semi local, from Sheboygan or some such. There were some problems during their first couple of songs (no lead vocals), but after the sound guy got that fixed they sounded good. I would label them sort of a power pop punk mix. They were definitely the pleasant surprise of the evening, and I will hopefully get to catch these guys again.

    The Jetty Boys were followed up by The Daniel James Gang and Poison Arrows. The Daniel James Gang is another local act, I didn't get into them as much as Jetty Boys. …
