This Man Would Starve In Kansas City



















His handmade nametag reads "Cpt. Earthman." He’s a vendor at Coors Field in Denver.

His antics include subverting every cheer for the Rockies into an anthem extolling beer, tying kids to the railing with licorice sticks and handing out cards with his cell phone number to especially thirsty fans. "What section and row?," he barks when his phone rings. "I’ll be right there."

Even if Kansas City fans could handle Cpt. Earthman, there’s no way Royals’ management would stand for it.

And in a nutshell, that's the difference between Kansas City and Denver.

I wrote briefly about last night's John Hiatt show at my music blog. It was my first exposure to Harrah's VooDoo Lounge. As others have already claimed, it's a great room for live music.

    I'm glad you had a good experience at the VooDoo Lounge. I hate that place with every fiber of my being. At every show I've been to at the VooDoo, the audience would rather talk than listen to the music. At Lucinda Williams' show there, they almost overpowered her at times.

    AM, the sound was perfect last night, and everyone around me behaved. (Of course, Hiatt's crowd is as tame as they come.) Usually though, people who won't STFU are omnipresent. A couple weeks ago, I was distressed by all the people carrying on like they were at a cocktail party while 90-something Honeyboy Edwards played at the KCK blues fest.
