TKC SATURDAY NIGHT PLAYLIST!!! EPIC KANSAS CITY ST. PADDY'S PARADE: ALWAYS POLITICAL, DRUNK AND SNARKY!!!
Kansas City hosts the fifth largest St. Pat’s parade in America, attracting more than 200,000 attendees for the route down Broadway Boulevard.
The old school denizens of Kansas City will pay tribute to the legacy of Mike Murphy and his tradition that started as a bar romp walk through Midtown . . . And then back to the bar. In his later years, as the parade gained popularity, he famously rode in a garbage truck more than a few times in order to taunt his compatriots.
Today, talk of inclusion, immigration and the American melting pot will resonate among politically motivated locals.
However . . .
TKC'S FAVORITE PASTIME IS LOOKING FOR SMALL SIGNS OF IRISH LIBERATION RHETORIC FROM ALL OF THE DIE HARD KANSAS CITY IRA ADMIRERS FROM AFAR!!!
Well there's that . . . And then all of the KC "Irish" gals getting really friendly.
Nevertheless . . .
If you really know KC's Irish community . . . This rhetoric typically ramps up from now until around Irish Fest in September and with small signs that Kansas City still glamorizes IRA dead end life from the relative safety of a bar stool in Midtown.
Still all this talk of "The Troubles" is just a little ethic local secret that proudly separates the local Irish from their boring white bread neighbors in the suburbs.
Example . . . TKC's favorite local Irish singer doesn't want his American citizenship and holding out on getting his papers right is a favorite bragging point that actually helps him stay "authentic" on this holiday weekend wherein EVERYBODY is Irish.
And so, because the celebration started on Friday at about 2:39 PM . . . Here's tonight's Irish rock playlist (with a few notable exceptions and confusion) dedicated to this KCMO party that always hosts more than a few fights, DUI arrests and flashing o'theboobs . . .
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun St. Paddy's Day.
