Like a Hurricane
Here’s a peek into the magic of The Hurricane's men’s room for those who fail to qualify for entry. And to be fair, as people pointed out here, there are far more repulsive places in town. In fact, if the Hurricane would just make soap available, I wouldn’t even flinch.
I opted for The Hurricane on Tuesday, which was one of Kansas City's most promising nights in recent memory for live music of the "alternative" flavor. Other choices included the mighty Wilco, who starred at the Uptown. El Torreon hosted a big punk show. Honky tonker Rex Hobart, buzz band Two Gallants and freak-folkers Pink Mountaintops performed at the Record Bar. Austin’s This Damn Town and Seattle’s New Fangs made noise at the Brick.
Unfortunately, the van of Hurricane headliners Marah broke down in Oklahoma. Saddened patrons heard Lawrence’s OK Jones preview their Zombies-influenced new material and Pendergast blast their muscular barroom laments.
Still, disappointment hung heavy at the Hurricane, especially for the members of OK Jones and Pendergast, all fans of Marah.
It was a real pisser.
