Concert Review: The Expassionates with Barclay Martin at Davey’s Uptown, 6/21/08

Expassionates, with Barclay Martin

Davey’s Uptown

Better than: Lung cancer

There’s no place I would have rather experienced my first smoke-free night in Kansas City than Davey’s Uptown. Many a night have I cursed the dive’s omnipresent smoke cloud, and just as many nights I’ve avoided it altogether for that very reason. Thanks to the great voters of Kansas City, I was stoked to experience my first (mostly) smokeless night in Kansas City. As an added bonus, Expassionates and Barclay Martin were set to perform – the latter joining the bill following an unfortunate last-minute cancellation by San Francisco’s The Botticellis (a great band well worth checking out despite their unexplained truancy).

More after the jump.
