  • Happy Pazcki Day!

  • Hamtramck will be lit up with people getting lit today--gorging on pazcki and alcohol. Various bars throughout the city (remember there is about a million) will be holding events packed with bands and drink specials. Check out the New Dodge, Whiskey, Belmont, and Kelly's for some of the best day drinking. Then, take a nap and get back out there for a night time of gluttony.
  • Odd Hours Seeks New Drummer

  • Solar Plexus Power of Babooshka by Odd Hours Hey everyone, As you may know, Odd Hours is looking for a new permanent drummer BUT for now, we are asking our friends for a TEMPORARY replacement to fill a couple of live shows and a studio video shoot at a TV station.

  • Bad Indians keeping busy, playing with puppies

  • Ypsilanti outfit Bad Indians have been keeping busy by playing with the same group of puppies for three weeks straight. Band members were uncertain where the puppies came from, noting they just seemed to ‘roll in with the fog’. “I think they showed up just as we were starting a practice,” explained band member Autumn Wetli, “And they’re puppies—so it’s not like you’re going to not play with [...]

  • Federal prosecutors in the Kwame Kilpatrick corruption trial are prepared to enter into evidence proof that the years long probe of Kilpatrick, subsequent trial and—consequently—all of our known reality is just a dream. “It started off when we realized that no God would ever put into motion such a torrid set of circumstances,” explained Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Bullotta, “Then we thought[...]
  • Study: Nation’s Blacks Increasingly Fearful of White Males 18-30

  • A new study finds African-Americans are increasingly fearful of suburban White males. In the study, conducted by the Pew Research Center, 65 percent of those surveyed responded favorably to the statement: ‘I, or my children, will likely meet their mortal end at the hands of a White male 18-30’. The study focused on 30 to 55-year-old African-Americans living in urban centers. “I’m not saying [...]
  • Back From Vacay. Go Time For 2013.

  • Kind of an update of things around these here parts. The most daunting and arduous weekly was the Top 5. I'd like to keep it going but with a bit more diversification. I really want this site to remain locally focused. In other words, promoting the bands and shows from here, in here, all here. I only like the National Acts that are sweet and are giving out free stuff. Anyways, Mitten[...]
  • Romney Loses; 'I Really Was Looking Forward To Killing Some Iranians'

  • Mitt Romney conceded that he had lost in the national competition to see who would get to kill, or direct others to kill, Iranians. "I'm bummed," Romney said as he spoke in Boston, "I really was looking forward to killing some Iranians. I thought: I'll kill some with drones and maybe order others to be shot. I planned to abduct some and just hold onto 'em for as long as I felt like." The wi[...]

  • Why No Top 5 This Week!!!!!

  • Oh my god!!! What the fuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!! Please remember, in doing the Top 5, we are dealing with musicians. As a subculture, musicians aren't really the most reliable bunch. This being the first occurrence wherein a requested Top 5 was never submitted as promised, I decided to put this up rather than scramble and get something rushed and contrived. Anyways, sorry, and Weekend Lowdown will b[...]
  • Romney and the 47%: A Non-Issue In Progress

  • For the next few weeks we’ll be hearing about Presidential candidate Romney and his most recent ‘gaffe’. Whether this is a story is highly debatable. In fact, if there is a story in this it is the press and their fascination with the obvious. The basis for the criticism being tossed on Romney is: he talked about something he actually believes. Now, to clarify, Romney doesn’t believe what he sa[...]
