Temples rolled into Kansas City to play an in-store at Mills Record Company and people were lined around the block to see the band in action. The band mostly played material off of their new album Volcano which comes out in March. They also stuck around after the performance to meet their fans and sign poster and albums. Here is what I documented.
I traveled over to St. Louis for the weekend to see what LouFest was all about. I had seen quite a few of these acts fairly recently but for whatever reason every time LCD Soundsystem has been around I have missed them other than catching a few songs back in 2007. So a couple of us drove across Missouri to see what LouFest was all about. Drinking beer and listening to live music in 80 degree weather isn't a terrible way to spend the weekend. Here are all of the acts that I caught. (click on images for full screen view)
This ghost town is located near the Kansas/Oklahoma border was dis-incoporated as a town in September of 2009. This was due to cave-in risks of local structures and groundwater contamination caused by years and years of lead and zinc mining. These are a few photos from what is left of this decaying town.
I loved being able to get out and capture images in such a lively city. While visiting friends this weekend I made it out to the Chinatown, Wicker Park, and Ukrainian Village neighborhoods. I'm also a sucker for the train so of course I had to get a few quick flicks on the tracks as well.
