Bouncing the balls around for Labor Day



This past weekend Kansas City had an excuse to get a little crazy for Labor Day.

Local alternative radio station 96.5 The Buzz, put on their annual "Buzz Beach Ball" at Capital Federal Park at Sandstone. Past line ups have included: 311, 30 Seconds To Mars and Dashboard Confessional. So this year's festival followed suit in the caliber of bands. For an evening of music, locals heard the likes of: Taking Back Sunday, The Von Bondies and headliners Weezer and Blink-182.

Thousands came out to the amphitheater and had a great mixture of music to enjoy. From pop-punk of the headliners, to the classic rock of the Von Bondies and even a bit of hip-hop with Kansas Citian artist Mac Lethal. If those weren't enough, you had other local artists The Republic Tigers, to gently wisk away with their ambient rock sound.

It was a perfect way to not work, in celebration of the holiday that celebrates...not working.
