Hyperopia in Concert

I wanted to post a quick note before I went to bed to say Hyperopia was wonderful at the Record Bar in Kansas City tonight. In case you don't know, the band features Lori Wray (formerly of Minneapolis, and Lawrence before that, think Von Bulows) and drummer Steve Eddy, formerly of the Micronotz, plus Steve Dahlberg (of Ricky Dean Sinatra fame) and Kirk Larson (ex-Random Aztec). They played for about an hour as the opening band and threw in a bevy of originals including my current fave "Last Goodbye". The show ended with a spirited cover of the Embarrassment's "D-Rings". I'll be tired tomorrow at work, but I'm glad I saw the band. Thanks!
More Good news: They play again in Lawrence on October 19th at the Jackpot Saloon.

For Your Ears Only - 2007

Plan to attend the annual Audio Reader media sale at the Douglas County Fairgrounds September 21st and 22nd. My advice: pay the cover charge and go Friday night. You'll get first crack at all the good stuff.
