THE TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! CELEBRATE BOULEVARDIA AND BOORISH KANSAS CITY FESTIVAL SEASON!!!
This weekend all of the Kansas City beer drinking $30K millionaires are celebrating their middle-management journey @ Boulevardia and local media is doing their best to hype the booze fest like it's the cure for cancer.
Whilst hot weather good times aren't a horrible thing, this Summer festival season seems exceptionally vulgar given the growing disparity betwixt rich and poor, a divisive election season and rising crime in Kansas City Proper. Sadly, local harsh realities confronting residents every day are well-hidden at KC Summer festivals dedicated to providing modern day Romanesque vomitoriums for the last vestiges of the fading American middle-class.
Sure, anybody reading blogs on a Saturday night probably isn't a social butterfly but we're hoping that there are other people in KC who can see through so many of these festival of gluttony dedicated only to fostering a false sense of community of booze guzzlers and eaters of chili-fries . . . Here's hoping that Kansas City is about more than mass consumption and some sense of social responsibility kicks in for the public at large or at least a reminder for the big-ass Midwestern extra-large public that this is an election year.
And so, tonight's playlist is dedicated to cowtown beer culture and the hope that Kansas City looks just a bit harder to more thoughtful entertainment than middle-aged locals pretending to do keg stands.
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night.
