Styx – Rocking the TPAC

“Rocking the Topeka Performing Arts Center” might not roll as smoothly off the tongue as “Rocking the Paradise,” but that’s exactly what Styx did on Saturday night. Though the theater was not sold out for the performance, the energy from the crowd filled it well beyond capacity. The last time that I saw a show at the Topeka Performing Arts ...
