The crossroads is an excellent arts district in Kansas City. I have enjoyed going to First Fridays on several occasions, walking through the galleries and shopping. I especially love Birdie's lingerie shop! Friendly people and gorgeous lingerie. There are a slew of great restaurants here, though I haven't tried many yet. Grinder's has great pizza.
The concert venue is really different from what I'm used to but I really liked it. It is a fenced in outdoor area covered in mulch. It is more comfortable to stand on than cement! They offer bar service and Grinder's opens a window to sell pizza and drinks as well. It is pretty easy to see from most areas because the ground is sloped in places. Port-a-potties... the usual. Exiting was pretty strange. Rather than opening up the gates where you enter, they filter everyone through Grinder's small restaurant. We felt a lot like cattle. Also, I've noticed the tickets are a little more overpriced than they should be. Not sure why. Even lesser known artists have expensive tickets here.
Overall: Great district. Great venue.
