The Deastro show at the Crofoot this Friday, May 23rd — which was the tagline to Ms. Wendy Case’s excellent article on the dude (and which led to yet another shitstorm on one of the local Bozo blogs this week — which I may or may not address in the near future, depending on...

It’s Not About Anything…

The Jandek show in Ann Arbor last weekend has been the buzz of many sites on the Internet since Monday. Some have termed it “brilliant”; others have called it “the emperor’s new clothes.” At the very least, everyone thinks the show can be described as “interesting”… Here’s a first-hand, eye-witness report from local writer...

Got a nice e-mail from Big Wave Dave over at MotorCityRocks.com stating that he didn’t mean to suggest that there was some sort of conspiracy or purposeful reason for us not tagging this Friday’s Deastro show at the C.A.I.D. It was nice of him to write. I guess it was the word “neglects” that...

We already Night & Day-ed this event this week, but what the hell. It’s such a big deal in many ways, it’s certainly worth a double whammy. This one’s from our illustrious Arts Editor Rebecca: May 17th… What? No. Shut up. That doesn’t make sense. Screw you; no way. That’s what I said when...

May is the month that the music performing right organizations BMI and ASCAP host various annual songwriting award banquets in Los Angeles. The dinners are always a blast — and Detroit “garage rock” made a strong showing at the Ascap Film & TV Awards last Tuesday, May 6th at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly...
