Last night's Midwest Mayhem brought seven stages, a dozen-odd bands a crowd we're going to say was comfortably in the thousands to the City Museum. KDHX knows how to throw a party, but don't take our word for it: We brought our Flip camera along and asked some folks what they thought of the evening.
Fair warning: This was a first attempt at this sort of thing and I clearly have some improvements to make in the system. Sorry for a couple errant shots. If you are featured in one of these videos: First of all, thank you so much. Second: If I have spelled your name incorrectly, let me know and I will fix it.
Kat had good things to say about Funky Butt Brass Band and went with an enthusiastic leap to describe the evening. I am a terrible videographer and spent a few seconds filming her chin by accident.
Mark loves Sleepy Kitty but not counting. In fairness, I am the one asking obnoxious questions like, "Describe Midwest Mayhem in three words."
Sarah Bell came from yoga class and is feeling very stream-of-consciousness about this whole Midwest Mayhem business.
Tom and Peggy are relatively new to KDHX and this sort of attendant mayhem, but they like what they see.
