Three Down, One To Go…

March 7, 2009

Man, I felt exhausted going into Blowout after putting all the editorial stuff together. and, today, finally, I’m an absolute zombie. But I figured I’d better scribble down a few random thoughts from these last three nights of my second-ever Blowout, which Brian Bowe once described to me on the phone as “Detroit’s South...

Thursday Night Blowout Hits

March 7, 2009
By

Started out by checking out the amazing guitar heavy pop of Citizen Smile at Small’s. Reminiscent of early Teenage Fanclub and bass player Adam Padden is arguably the Paul McCartney of Detroit. Besides, any band with a singer named James Brown is cool with me. Keeping the ridiculously good guitar pop alive at Small’s...

Hamtown Nocturne

March 7, 2009
By

March 7, 2009
By

One of the many epic Blowout 12 adventures last night was the Hadituptohere’s late set at Kelly’s Bar, which started like a punk rock insane asylum, and then came totally unglued from there. Bodies slamming, drums, guitars, arms, and elbows flying, along with a heaping helping dose of crowd surfing made this one a...

Holy Light

March 7, 2009
By

Love and fat kisses to the tubby push-tit with the beard/black-rimmed specs combo who continued to smash my toes with his giant size 12 or whatever boots whilst traveling in and out of the Atlas Bar. The tops of the feet this a.m. are hued in peculiar shades of crimson. Neat. Could only hope...

Bombed Out Of My Mind

March 7, 2009
By

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...
