Concerts You Can See This Summer in Kansas City, but Not in St. Louis

Summer will be here before you know it. We've starting compiling information on upcoming summer concerts for 2015. When we do this, we usually focus on concerts in St. Louis, since it is the nearest major city to us, and it's a city that many of the major tours visit. However, sometimes you have to travel just a little farther to see your favorite acts. While many of the same artists and bands will be performing in both St. Louis and Kansas City, there are a few that (as of this writing) only have Kansas City dates booked for this summer.

We Are a Mobile Society, So In What State Were You Born?

With the weather as hot as it was over the weekend, it turned out to be a "lost" weekend as far as doing the things I wanted to do. I did manage to make it to Blues in the District Friday night, and while there I ran into a guy from Hannibal who recognized me. Then I met a guy and his wife from Kansas who was there as well. Saturday, I ventured out for dinner and struck up a conversation from some people from Arkansas, Indiana and Florida. Just by chance these occurrences all took place. It almost felt like I was around more "outsiders" than "locals."  It got me to thinking about just how mobile our society is.
