Band of Horses and A Young Fan’s Big Bang

Last Sunday at Wichita's legendary Cotillion Ballroom, I witnessed history. History for one young fan, anyway. Let me back up. Sunday afternoon I found myself with an extra ticket to the Band of Horses/Bonny Doon show (thanks again, Billy!) and had no one immediately in mind to go with me. After a moment, though, I … Continue reading Band of Horses and A Young Fan’s Big Bang

Pink — Intrust Bank Arena, Wichita, KS 03/03/2018

Not to brag, but I've been to an awful lot of concerts over the years. It'd be hard to put a number on it, but I'd estimate maybe in the 100-150 range.

Their massive world tour, promoting ambitious … Continue reading Concert Review: Avenged Sevenfold/Breaking Benjamin 02/06/18—Intrust Bank Arena, Wichita, KS

Concert Review: Reverend Horton Heat/Fishbone 09/30/17—The Cotillion Ballroom, Wichita, KS

You could make a lot of assumptions about the city of Wichita, KS. You could assume it’s a flyover state hellhole devoid of any culture or art, but you’d be (mostly) wrong. You could assume it’s a city full of hayseeds and rednecks who don’t take kindly to outsiders, but you’d be (mostly) wrong. You … Continue reading Concert Review: Reverend Horton Heat/Fishbone 09/30/17—The Cotillion Ballroom, Wichita, KS
