I woke up on Friday morning with a bad case of what can only be described as Blowout-fatigue. In other words, I was knackered. These frantic late nights out on school nights soon start to take their toll. So as Day 3 of the festival loomed, I decided that I was going to take...

Shades Of Gary Numan

Thursday night at the Knights of Columbus (hall and lounge) on Conant was a-hoppin’.

With Zoos of Berlin, Daniel., Devilfish and Blase Splee...

It was a mistake on our behalf; we had only planned on offering the $10 wristbands on Saturday night since it is the last night of the festival. The $10...

Laura: So Blowout Day 2! The first official, “so many venues and bands, so little time” frenzied evening. Did you have fun? D’Anne: Yes. The highlight of Blowout Day Two was definitely, for me, the Juliets. L: Yes — Jeremy Freer‘s new outfit is tops. Reminded me of the Divine Comedy — one of...

Let’s All Make Love In Detroit

Yes, oh, yes, I’m feeling it. I watched interview and performance footage (“Astronomy Domine”) of Pink Floyd in ’67 before going out last night to pre-party Blowout XII, and did it for the unforgettable genius Syd B. and inspiration’s sake; I then rolled out to the Majestic just in time for the spoken word,...
