Last night, Kyle, Allie, Chelsea and I went to the Buzz Beach Ball here in Kansas City.  Jeff Julian (sporting his very GWB appropriate geek shirt) and Doug Butscher (who I think I saw crowd surfing) were also there.

I really liked Life In Jersey, the opening band.  They sounded like Senses Fail and were really excited to be playing.  Come to find out they are a local Kansas City band.

Shiny Toy Guns stole the show in my opinion.  They kind of have a Lords of Acid meets Roxette feel to them.  Their whole set was high energy and they even threw a Depeche Mode cover in for Kyle.  They are playing in Wichita in couple months.  Hopefully, I'll get to see them again.

Plain White T's did not show up because they are tools.

There is not much to say about a band with a lead signer on a 20-year coke binge, I wouldn't have been disappointed if Satellite Party did not show up either.

The Used have been one of my favorite bands for a while, and I was really excited to see them.  They didn't really disappoint, but they didn't exceed my expectations.  They just didn't sound very crisp.  At times, I couldn't tell if the lead signer was gargling mouthwash or singing.  It was still The Used though, and they still rock.

Yeah, I love Shiny Toy Guns , they definitely put on a good show. Caught them out here in Portland a couple times.

If you ever get a chance to see She Wants Revenge jump on that. They're incredible live.

Bummer about Plain White T's, I would have liked to have heard how they were live....

Shiny Toy Guns rocked the Granada a few months back. I think they're playing somewhere else in the Topeka-Lawrence-KC area in the next month or so. I really love 'em.

Tim and I rock the Shiny Toy Guns at work quite often. I have to say that a smaller indoor venue would have suited them better live, but their short set was worth the price of admission. I love that they covered Depeche Mode who unfortunately cut their KC show extremely short last summer at Starlight. She Wants Revenge opened that night and they were fantastic.

Great pic. Gotta love "Stripped". Plus, the two Jane's flashback (Been Caught Stealin' and Jane Says) were flippin' awesome.
