I Found My Thrill
I attended events at Kansas City's best and worst performance spaces last night. The Kauffman Center For the Performing Arts is so striking that "I felt this thrill going up my leg" while I explored the facility. I felt sweat streaming down my leg as I tried to hear a country artist sing "I Love Black People" at the Power & Light District's outdoor stage. As I've noted elsewhere, the space's sonic problems could be dramatically improved if the surrounding bars and restaurants would stop blaring music while performers were on stage. Power & Light had Kauffman beat in one regard last night. The former served cookies and water while the latter offered draft beer.
