Darkness arrives in Kansas City as teenage goth, Emily Kzany, emerges from the shadows to share her pain and poetry. Hailing from Yukon, Oklahoma (birthplace of Garth Brooks), Kzany's "cutting" edge poems are inspired by cemetery picnics and sleepovers at the local detention center. This interactive show includes a goth haiku contest: send your most depressing haiku to email@example.com at least four hours before showtime. And don your blackest black to enter the goth fashion contest.
Grant Maloy Smith
Grant Maloy Smith presents his new album DUST BOWL - AMERICAN STORIES as a one-man show. Take a trip back to the American Great Plains during the 1930s, when enormous dust storms ("black rollers") rolled across the prairie, turning day into night, and leaving a trail of sickness, devastation, and heartbreak in their wake. Over-farming combined with a seemingly endless drought combined to cause the Dust Bowl. Grant Maloy Smith will bring this world back to life with his one-man show, and songs written from the heart of this episode of American history. Come experience it!
If you have seen Jelly Rose and her four-piece band live in concert before, you know she can flat out bring it! That will not change with this performance. What will change is that this year’s performances will each have a unique theme. Relationships, Resolution, Spirituality & Potpourri. The setlist of each show will reflect the theme. Additionally, Jelly Rose will utilize a "storytellers-like" format to explain various aspects of the songs: i.e. the catalyst/inspiration, meaning and lyrics. Jelly Rose performs an eclectic mix of original music with sounds and textures from various genres including Pop, Jazz, Country, R&B, and Rock. There is plenty to enjoy for a wide range of music taste.
