KANSAS CITY MUSIC AND ART QUICK HITS!!!



Just a few artsy Kansas City items to note this evening regarding some of our favorite local sounds and sights that don't get enough recognition from the cocktail party set . . .

First up . . .

KANSAS CITY RAPPER KYLE JAMES RECENTLY CELEBRATED A B-DAY AND TKC SENDS BEST WISHES!!!



Here's a pretty cool shot of the Kansas City rapper in a Farshid Ovji studio probably working on his Finally Off Papers EP that has met with some pretty decent reviews . . .

A bit of teasing from friends, check the the KJ B-Day Cake . . .



Words of wisdom and kinda funny.

Next up . . .

CONTROVERSIAL KANSAS CITY ARTIST MARK ALLEN SOON TO DEBUT A WESTPORT POP-UP ART GALLERY!!!



Mark Allen has enjoyed a bit of fun with the local mainstream media along with making a powerful Black Friday statement amid reporting of the deadly shopping holiday.



About his Westport plans . . .

Mark Allen Seyz: "Upon my return to Kansas City, I will begin plans to open a pop-up store in the Westport area that will act as a bodybag store/ art gallery/ project space/ weird t-shirt shop. I will begin a Kickstarter in March and plan to open the doors this summer."

Certainly a project to watch and we hope to report what will undoubtedly be a unique debut . . .

Sound for Kansas City Sunday Night . . .

CHECK OUT KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY AREA PUNK BAND RADKEY!!!



Radkey is a band of brothers from nearby Kansas City who were homeschooled and have now earned recognition in the UK . . . Check this listing from a magazine across the pond naming these guys as a band to be excited about in 2014.

Take a look at Radkey in action:



Sunday evening is an excellent opportunity to take note of all these rising Kansas City area stars as working stiffs make their big plans for the week.

Hopefully, we'll have more BREAKING/EXCLUSIVE NEWS, discussion, debate, discourse, probably just a bit of hateration and all kinds of good stuff in just a few . . . STAY TUNED!!

No, Lube.

To make KJ's stay as the ward of the state nicer.

KC Musiq said...

Personally, I prefer jazz. Not the smooth kind though.

Taste The Rainbow said...

Apparently TKC prefers jizz. Why else would he promote the likes of KJ, Alonzo, And Craig.

Is that guy just going to lay around in his gallery?

I hope Mark Allen has investors with money to lose.
Good luck!

A black mother had the good sense to home school her children as so not to grow up into the thug life. Good for her. This is a proud moment.

Happy Birthday, Kyle.

Instead of "Stay out of jail", how about "Don't be such a nigger"??

Radkey's cool, KJ still a douchey richboy, and Mark Allen is a artsy fartsy dork.

Byron's dirty ass crack said...

Fill me up Kyle so I can leak all day!!!

Desperate pretentious performance art won't pay Westport rent. Can't Allen just go to Crossroads and join the others doing the same thing?
