Inaugural post and such

Hello, and welcome to Riot on the Plaza. My name is Greg, and I created this blog over a year ago to document my infatuation with music from the Kansas City area. Like so many other projects I have taken upon, it unsurprisingly went absolutely nowhere. Since then, a few respectable Lawrence-based blogs have popped up to keep tabs on what is going on over there, and, seeing as most people assume I run a music blog anyway, I (with a bit of pressure) decided to give this another shot.

A large majority of the posts here will essentially be longer, more detailed writings of what I often tweet about over at my personal account (@GregoryStitt), with links to new album pre-orders, streams, or free downloads from bands in the general Kansas City/Lawrence area. In addition to this, I plan on creating a calendar of noteworthy local events/performances… and hey, if I feel like it I may even rip some old locally released records and stream them (with the permission of the bands, of course).

Fun fact: the name of this blog is taken from a Tanka Ray song, and this space was created exactly one month prior to the incident that occurred on the Country Club Plaza in April of 2010. Guess I missed my chance to get a flood of search results.


About Greg

The purpose of Riot on the Plaza is simply to get some names out there that may have otherwise been overlooked, both from today and from years past. This blog is just a place where I can nerd out about bands I enjoy, and I hope you enjoy it as well.
