Event History

Recycled Rockstar’s Invitational series originated at Club Mustache Nov. 6th and 7th, 2009. We hosted 16 bands over the course of the weekend and I remember it being one hell of a good time. The Gusto, In Defence, Hipshot Killer, Opossum Trot, and Them Damned Young Livers are only a few of the folks that helped us kick off this fine tradition.

It was the April 16th and 17th, 2010 when the Riot Room graciously agreed to host 24 bands, 9 DJ’s, 16 vendors, and a shitload of drunk people for the first Spring Invitational. It went off without a hitch and was a major step in the forging of Kansas City’s musical future.

On April 18th, 2010 the decision was made that Fall Invitationals should be low-key and Spring Invitationals should be extravagant. Nov. 12th, 2010 was the 2nd Fall Invitational and played host to an international line-up. Pericles came in from the Dominican Republic and Turdus Musicus from Norway. St. Louis’ The Disappeared and KC locals Bent Left, Under the Black Sails, and New Lost Souls filled out the bill. Six bands in one day was the perfect mixture of low-key set-up and extravagant turn-out we had hoped for.

All of us here at Recycled Rockstar Ind are rested up and excited to bring you another killer Invitational this Cinco de Mayo weekend. Mark your calendars and help keep the tradition alive.
