Will "The Truman" Spark Concert Renaissance In Kansas City East Crossroads?!?!



The East Crossroads will soon host a new venue that has high hopes of cashing in on a trend that exists mostly in the minds of Kansas City real estate developers and politicos.

Rather than focus on boring biz dudes Chris Cobb & partner, Josh Billue along with the snoozy deets of their million dollar entertainment gambit that hopes to compete against small to medium sized venues. . . Here's their pitch:

The Truman

Originally built in the 1930s, The Truman celebrates the look and feel of the concrete and steel building reborn as a music venue and event space. The Truman features a large main hall, separate bar & lounge at the main entrance, open air patio, and second story VIP that overlooks the stage and has downtown Kansas City views.

Conveniently located just 2 minutes from Downtown, The Truman is located in The East Crossroads. The Crossroads Arts District is a vibrant and diverse community that welcomes all walks of life and all forms of artistic expression. Home to more than 400 local artists and 100 independent studios, the Crossroads Arts District is one of the most concentrated gallery districts in the nation. Beyond the galleries, restaurants and storefronts, you’ll find an equally impressive collection of professional design studios, architectural firms, advertising agencies, and other innovative businesses.

Stretch has had some luck with his outdoor mud puddle that manages to offer some notable acts. BUT the market might be getting over-saturated.

Is the East Crossroads is ready to be KC's new entertainment hot spot???

Other than tech, the first week line-up is kind of weak.

Young people would rather play video games.

All depends. Will they let black people ruin it?

Can't wait until it becomes the new Erotic City.

Right now there's nothing there- even if this business doesn't last, it's better than nothing. The developers are practicing their right in a free market economy to have their own business just like the ShoMe Institute likes to talk about. But as usual Tony is hating on anyone who steps foot outside their mom's basement and tries to accomplish anything other than losing a libel lawsuit.

Great. Grab mom and the kids and get down there as fast as possible.

Count down to another tax break. The whole district is tif'd to hell. It's welfare project. Report THAT.

Ha. Most of these comments are from geezers who go to bed by 6:00PM and haven't been out of the house at dark in decades. This isn't for you.

You can put lipstick on a pig but it'll still wind up looking like Bannister Mall and Indian Springs.

Hopefully they can clean the stench out of the place after the Tech 9 show in time for Slowdive.

Geezer Hater is pretty feisty this morning. He must've slapped around a bunch of old people eating breakfast at Denny's this morning.

Geezer Hater is just a wigger that can't get a job still living in mama's basement. Has no hold on what it takes to get ahead in life. Jealous of what older generations have built for themselves (and he'll never achieve) and is pissed because his liberal kind nuked the middle class during Obama's reign and sees no hope in sight.

Concrete and steel, oh great for their acoustic qualities.

Sounds like a great place to get robbed or killed after seeing a show.
