TKC MUST SEE!!! THE OUTHOUSE 1985-1997 MOVIE DEBUTS OCT. 14TH!!!



While the MSM morning newscasts feature middle-class locals smiling at one another and acting mostly FAKE . . . Here's a bit of #TBT goodness that speaks to REAL local music history . . .

THE OUTHOUSE MOVIE MIGHT BE THE BEST KANSAS CITY AREA DOCUMENTARY OF 2017!!!

A quote from one of the film's producers . . .

“The Outhouse was more than a place to see bands. It was a weird community. Marginalized, weird kids from all over Kansas and Missouri would meet up and for several hours run our own little equivalent of Burning Man. The music was real, raw, vibrant, energetic, angry and fresh.”

TKC is guilty of seeing The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Fishbone, Helmet and Gwar at this venue while staying far away from the mosh pit and making sure I didn't share the same fate as that Native-American dude who was killed around the early 90s.

Really excited to see this movie and readers are encouraged to brag about their visits to this venue by leaving a story in the comments or by telling their lady friends and bros that they read about the flick FIRST on TKC.

L7 was the highlight of the outhouse if only because they spit o all the guys in the front row of the concert and took a few of them backstage as groupies.

One of the last dangerous places. Every show was an adventure. Little known fact: The Dead Milkmen wrote Punk Rock Girl about a girl they met from the Outhouse. Good times man. Good times.

Several times was going to go there and the plans fell apart. But I know of many who went and the stores are insane. Looking forward to see this.

Random memories...

My friends and I carried the flag of skate punks in Emporia during the late 80's. We would tell our parents we were staying at various friends house only to sneak up to see shows at the Outhouse and The Bottleneck. D.R.I, Fugazi & The Dead Milkment to name a few. We thought we were punk until we went to the Outhouse. Our eyes were opened wide when we walked up to that cinder block building. I remember thinking, "Okay, now these people are PUNK." Once in and the music started, all our fears were washed away. Guys swinging from rafters with their combat boots wailing around. You didn't know what to watch out for, him or the stage dives into the mosh pit. My friend accidentally slammed into another dude, breaking his nose. Blood was pouring down his face. My friend apologized only to have the guy wave him off, "It's ok man, it's cool." Another memory that made me admire and appreciate the Outhouse... If you fell down in the mosh pit you had 3 guys swooping you up from the wet, dirty floor and back on your feet immediately. To most outsiders it would appear the mosh pit was ruthless, but to those in it we watched out for one another. It wasn't about beating the crap out of one another. No it was just a bunch of people enjoying the band and the energy their music brought. All doing so in a sort of choreographed chaotic dance.

I have been waiting years for this movie to come out. As the years went by, I was thinking it may have become on of those uncompleted projects. Great to hear they finally got it done. Looking forward to the release.

Cheers!
