We had a blast last Friday, October 26, during our first ever KPR Live Day, where we featured an entire day of live classical music from KPR's live performance studio and the Lawrence Public Library. If you missed it, here are some of the highlights. (Unfortunately, we had technical difficulties which prevented recording of the first and final performances.) Thanks for listening!

Description: Here Come The Mummies Special Guest Tropidelic December 10 The Here Come The Mummies show has been rescheduled for December 10. Tickets already purchase will be valid for the new date. If the new date does not work for you refunds will be available at your point of purchase. We appreciate you understanding and your patronage. Thanks, The Cotillion Staff Doors 7pm Tickets on sale now! Here Come the Mummies is an eight-piece funk-rock band of 5000 year-old Egyptian Mummies with a one-track mind. Their "Terrifying Funk from Beyond the Grave" is sure to get you into them (and possibly vice versa). Since their discovery HCTM has been direct support for P-Funk, Al Green, Mavis Staples, KC and the Sunshine Band, and Cheap Trick; rocked Super Bowl Village; become a regular on The Bob and Tom Show; played massive festivals like Summer Camp, Common Ground, Voodoo Fest, Musikfest, Suwannee Hulaween, and Riverbend; and sold tickets by the thousands across large swaths of North America. Maybe that’s why the ladies (and some dudes) can’t stop losing their minds over these mayhem-inducing mavens of mirth. Some say they were cursed after deflowering a great Pharaoh’s daughter. Others claim they are reincarnated Grammy-Winning studio musicians. Regardless, HCTM’s mysterious personas, cunning song-craft, and unrelenting live show will bend your brain, and melt your face. Get ready, for Here Come The Mummies. HCTM “‘KILLED’ it… Not only did they pack their stage - they were the hit of the night when they jumped on stage with moe. in front of 20,000.” - Jay Goldberg, Summer Camp Music Festival “Here Come The Mummies are one bad-ass band, a hybrid of Idris Muhammad, George Clinton, Ohio Players, and Earth, Wind & Fire.” -Blurt Magazine “A band unlike any other.” -examiner.com “That’s the most fun I've had in 20 years.” -Bob Kevoian, The Bob & Tom Show “Cock wobbling brilliant.” -Joe Elliott of Def Leppard www.herecomethemummies.comwww.facebook.com/herecomethemummies twitter.com/hctmummies
