Review: Bob Schneider at Knuckleheads

Bob Schneider couldn't get the line about Kansas City's "crazy little women" out of his head Tuesday. He made several references to the Leiber and Stoller song during his performance at Knuckleheads. Who could blame him?

The vast majority of the 200 people on hand were women. And a lot of them were, in fact, acting a little crazy. A handful of songs like "2002" aside, I could take or leave most of his stuff. Even my date, a woman compelled by the breathless ravings of her friends to attend, wondered what all the fuss was about.

"Bob Schneider is OK," she suggested, "But I'd rather see Howard Iceberg."

I agree.

I caught Julia Peterson, Sara Watkins, Carrie Rodriguez, Dar Williams and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals last night. Here's my review.

I've seen the likes of Mickey Gilley, Ray Stevens and the Baldknobbers in Branson, but I'm eagerly awaiting the day when artists like Aerosmith and Run-DMC run the town. It starts next month with Nelly.

Kansas City Click: Sam Bush plays a free concert Friday at Frontier Park in Olathe.

Hearts of Darkness perform Saturday at Crosstown Station.

E-40 headlines a massive show on Sunday that also includes The Jacka, Lee Majors, Rich the Factor, Berner and Ampichino.
