Tonight is the first night of Blow Out the two weekend long music festival of pretty much every band in the Detroit area worth a damn (and then more). Every time I talk to outsiders (people who don't see local live music, not to be confused with The Outsiders), they have no fucking clue what the "Blow Out" or "Metro Times Blow Out" is.

Michigan has 2 seasons: too hot and too cold (also known as SO COLD). And boring people only talk about the weather, so it is with great pleasure that I pronounce it summer. YES and this is your (first) summer jam!
Cayucas pronounced "zRfE-444" is the project of Zach Yudin, a Californian who has spent the last few years working at an independent jazz label ?! I[...]

To catch your last terrestrial sounds of praise (in his name) be sure to appear at Small's tonight 8pm, bring $8 dollars. Amino Acids and Carjack headline. Tell your pink loved ones good bye. No need to pack a suitcase. We've packed it for you.
Morrissey, former lead singer of the Smiths and current second coming of Christ, has been hospitalized in William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, MI. Morrissey's show scheduled for Jan. 24 in Flint, MI was cancelled and a rep for Morrissey has said, "he is undergoing tests for a suspected bladder infection."
