, The Black Keys, A Perfect Circle, The Flaming Lips, Kid Cudi, D12, Girl Talk, Flogging Molly and more are headed to the Kansas Speedway on August 5th and 6th for the Kanrocksas Music Festival
I've heard of stupid names before for concerts, Yallapalooza, etc. but Kanrocksas
is without a doubt THE dumbest name for an event that I've ever heard
. How in the hell did THAT name get out of the meeting room? It's like a tribute to illiteracy
. Well, it makes sense since given the bands that will be on stage will certainly draw Kansas City's biggest morons. If they posted up a police checkpoint
at the front gate and checked everyone for outstanding warrants, they would need 50 buses to fit them all in. This will be the biggest gathering of white trash that Kansas City has ever witnessed in one place.
is expected to draw near 100,000 attendees and they are providing camping grounds for fans to stay overnight. This is NOT a good idea. The kind of people who would want to hear bands like the King of White Trash himself, Eminem
, are not the kind of people who will all get out of this alive. I'm going to guess that there will be at least 3 deaths at Kanrocksas
, and at least 1700 babies conceived. I'm going to take another wild guess that Crystal Meth
will be the substance of choice among these well educated and sophisticated fans, giving them the opportunity to stay up for the entire 48 hours of the concert without needing sleep or food. The last concert that hosted this many white trash attendees was the 2010 Warped Tour where there were only about 2500 people and 1 person still died of dehydration
. This time there will be 100,000 drunk crystal meth heads in the dead heat of August, you do the math.
There is one shining light for Kanrocksas
in that it will definitely be a good place to people watch. There will definitely be some camo shorts, steel toe boots, the over sized man earrings that make the earlobe stretch out (those are so cool), various trashy tattoos, and some classic white trash girls who look really cute.........until they speak, that is......... think Mallory from Natural Born Killers
