  1. 'MUSIC MAKERS * Marilyn Manson, the rock act kids love to freak their parents out with, opened his Mechanical Animals tour in Kansas City, Kan., Monday. The previous night's warmup in a Lawrence, Kan., nightclub drew a pre-show demonstration that lasted 45 minutes and included a placard, God Hates Fags. The protesters were ID'd as members of Topeka's Westboro Baptist Church, which sent a delegation to Wyoming to protest homosexuality at Matthew Shepard's funeral. Manson did a 70-minute, 13-song set in KC's 3,000-seat Memorial Hall before a stagewide sign flashing: Drugs. There's been adult agitation to halt Manson's appearances in Syracuse, N.Y., and Charlotte, N.C.' - Philly.com Music Makers section.
