Monsters of Rock Chalk

80's era KJHK staffers and Lawrence music scene veterans will be gathering in the River City for two events on Saturday, July 5th. There is a 1pm daytime event for families at Burcham Park with music by DJ Ray Velasquez (flying in from NYC). Old friends and cronies will no doubt be trading war stories and remembering the bands, venues, and people that made the alternative music scene in Lawrence, KS what it was in those days. The evening event features music from an ever shifting lineup of stars that may include The Von Bulows (= Pedaljets + Lori Wray). Last I heard the music takes place on stage at the Replay. Fun band Gourmet Mushroom X is also scheduled to play. Sponsored by Leslie "Sunshine" Dunham, KJHK staffer from the mid 80's. Get the latest developments at her mySpace page dedicated to the event.
