    Default Kanrocksas?

    'round here in Kansas City, out of nowhere this week, something billed as Kanrocksas started asserting itself as a major festival that will share Lolla's weekend, and more than likely some of its acts.

    Not much else has been announced, though it will have camping and they think they can sell 100,000 tickets.

    Lineup will be announced on Monday, and they're having a press event for the unveiling - is this normal?

    KC gets no love for festivals, aside from our annual "Rockfest" (think Godsmack, Seether, other awful sounds,) I'm really excited about this. Anyone hear anything about it?

    I'm going to go ahead and guess that Hinder is on a Rocklahoma lineup.

    My folks live in KC, so if the rest of the lineup is good and the tix are (relatively) inexpensive I might go.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    IF Muse is playing, they play Saturday. And probably close out Lolla sunday.

    Kansas has nothing to offer me. Unless this random festival just booked DFA1979. Then it's on.

    Midwestern folk like to ramble and give each other handjobs before they give out the news.
