...at the new Voodoo Lounge at Harrahs Casino in NKC. They sucked hard and long. They kept claiming technical difficulties throughout the show, and this was after almost a 45 minute delay of opening their set. I don't know how much merit goes into them saying they had difficulties (they DID have roadies walking around the stage all night, fiddling with this and that), but even with that, they just didn't put on a good show at all. The crowd halfway got into their mainstream songs, and not so much with their other stuff. All in all, they sounded like Nirvana with a forced edge to their sound. Big effing thumbs down.

On the plus side, their opening band, "The Sound and the Fury", kicked ass. They are a local KC band that has apparently been around for a few years that I have never heard of. They are playing at the Hurricane in Westport Nov. 19th, and I would encourage those who like the hard rock to go check them out.

And also, the Voodoo Lounge is an awesome venue of about 2,000 to watch live shows. The setup is perfect, and the waitresses walk around in leather short shorts (bonus!). Very cool place to watch a show.

Yep, they played it. It was one of the two or three songs that sounded good.

Seriously, they sucked sweaty balls in concert tonight. Good thing I got drunked up.

I don't go to concerts for this very reason. I've been to two and they both ruined the three bands I saw and previously liked. Live albums and music videos do the same thing for me. Musicians should be heard, not seen.

If a band is good they're just as good live, if not better, than on a CD.

You should be a fan of less shitty bands, maybe.

Good thing it was a free ticket, although I still almost demanded my money back.

I'm not sure if the equipment belonged to the band or Harrahs. Either way, the show blew.

I was thinking of trying to get tickets to see Blues Taveller there. So it was a cool place, shitty show aside?

Absolutely. The place only holds 2,000 or so, but the venue is great. It kind of reminds me of the Uptown, only much, much nicer. Two levels, with two bars downstairs, and one upstairs. The upstairs has tables and lounge areas you can sit at, and have a great view of the show. we lucked out and ended up front and center on some couches on the upper level. Plus, the waitresses all have these skimpy leather dominatrix outfits, which is never a bad thing.

I'd go back to see a concert there. Very enjoyable time, crappy bands aside.

I saw Puddle of Mud a few years back at the Cheyenne Frontier Days. This was right after they came out with their 1st album. They put on a good show then. I'm not a real big fan of their music but it's not bad. I lump them in there with 3 Doors Down and Nickelback. You're right they pretty much are a Nirvana clone. But hell it's at least R&R. With as many shitty bands that are out there now you'd think some smart kids would be honing up on their guitar skills. But nah.. They'd rather master the art of abusing LP's on a turntable. ROFL

It was awesome.

If you hurry, Fire Me Boy! might be able to scrounge up another ticket to Les Miserables for you.

yeah puddle of mud gives KC a bad name for the most part. There is this new band with a chick lead singer that is about ready to make it big.

Meh... there's only one guy from the KC Puddle of Mudd in the famous Puddle of Mudd. I don't really see them as a representative of KC at all.

It bugs me because when I start talking about different music scenes people make fun of KC my bringing them up.

Very cool, thank you.

I picked up their CD last night after the gig. Haven't had a chance to check it out just yet. They had a song, "Psychoman", that must be on their first CD. If I like this CD, I'll just have to get the other.
