Lawrence Concert Calender

I’ve been trying to figure out a way to do this for some time. Now, thanks to the power of and the ingenuity of the iCal standard, I am happy to bring you my two mashup calenders for the music scene in Lawrence, Kansas. To some, this may seem very unneccesary. I just didn’t like subscribing to 26 different calenders, cluttering up my calender. Now, you can just turn off one calender if it is too much to bear. Simple.

As I said, all credit for the collection of these events goes to the brains in the basement at the World Co. All I did was take the individual venues and mash them together into two options, all venues and venues that host national/regional shows.

I would recommend the latter, but if you feel the need to stay up to date on the happenings at Aimee’s coffee house and Solidarity! Revolutionary Bookstore, knock yourself out. Also, if you have a request for another reduction of the full list, let me know in the comments section. Enjoy and spread the word that these are here!

Why is The Granada so middling for bands?

I checked out the Of Montreal show at The Granada in Lawrence on Feb. 20. While I certainly enjoyed myself, I must say when I saw them play The Bottleneck in ’05 (Sunlandic Twins tour), it was a better show.

I can’t decide if it is the multiple levels of the Granada that are to blame, but shows there rarely bring out the best in a band. Two exceptions: The Urge (jumping off levels always helped their shows) and Rusted Root. I will ponder this further and get back to you.
