Eight Gigs: Kansas
Tues., Sept. 8, 7:30 p.m.; Crest Theatre, $39-$195
When you've got a hit like “Carry on Wayward Son” that's been openly loved by bros and secretly loved by everyone else for more than four decades, it's safe to say you've achieved a bit of timelessness. Further bolstering Kansas' claim of immortality is Will Ferrell's character in Old School famously belting out “Dust in the Wind.” A No. 6 Billboard hit in 1978, the song has been and will continue to be played at funerals until the end of time. But the five-piece classic rock band isn't content to stop there: it's currently touring in the wake of a documentary about its history, Miracles Out of Nowhere, which came out in March of this year. 1013 K Street, http://www.kansasband.com.
