WHOOP DEE DOO A SMASH AT THE BEMIS CENTER

The only thing more colorful that the eye-popping sets and costumes was the crazy cacophony of characters that flocked to the Bemis Center last Saturday for the taping of the faux public access TV show Whoop Dee Doo...

The Bemis Center was packed tighter than a Tokyo subway car as Kansas City artists Jaimie Warren, Matt Roche and a posse of prevaricators filmed Whoop Dee Doo, a kid-friendly experiment in social swirling that included the unlikely likes of Omaha indie sensation Tilly and the Wall, the Salem Stepping Saints, Carnal Torpor, the Omaha Pug Club and the Dancin’ Grannies colliding in a cross-generational, cross-cultural connectedness that reminds us once again that art is for all.

Featured on both KETV and KPTM news programs, film crews came to cover the memorable mash-up of merry madness that is Whoop Dee Doo.
