Blowout thoughts (and poetry)

Posted By on Sun, Apr 28, 2013 at 6:06 PM

Guest blog by Paul Clos (Thursday/Saturday), Anthony Anonymous (Friday), Ryan Roy (haikus) Thursday was a good start to the days of fun ahead of us. It was a good change for me, instead of having practice and drinking until I was in a stupor I got to see other people...

Firsts: Blowout

Posted By on Sun, Apr 28, 2013 at 2:30 PM

The first time Noah from the Craycrays pinball-punched his body with wild abandon out from the floor-level "stage" inside the Polish National Alliance lounge and into the crowd, it was brief, as a lightning strike, and didn't cause too much of a mosh-ish dust-up. The second time...during the last song......

Saturday At The Hangout-The Story Of My Second Blowout w/ Sponge

Posted By on Sun, Apr 28, 2013 at 1:52 PM

  CrayCray's at Blowout 16 For my second Blowout, I better understood the happenings in Ham-Town, and (sort of) had a plan to catch as many bands as possible. Arriving at the Polish National Alliance (PNA) hall just short of 9 o’clock, I was able to jump into the...

The ladies are painted at Blowout Day 3

Posted By on Sun, Apr 28, 2013 at 9:26 AM

It’s very strange to think that the Saturday evening of Blowout is done, and we’re only halfway through this great beautiful thing. Apparently, some people still can’t get a handle on the whole expansion thing and have been clinging to the idea that Blowout is ditching Hamtramck. This weekend proved...

The Hounds Below on Blowout Day 2

Posted By on Sat, Apr 27, 2013 at 4:56 PM

By Will A. Shattuck and Jason Stollsteimer (of The Hounds Below) Paychecks smells like puke And poop. I think the giant pile of orange cones outside the front entrance indicates a recent plumbing malfunction. (Will) Now on to the bands: Nam kook and the typhoon were great. The venue for...

Mathias Aduke on Blowout Day 2

Posted By on Sat, Apr 27, 2013 at 4:25 PM

My band #2, All The Wild Children played at the Whiskey in the Jar. It was a decent turn out, mostly close friends up front, and definitely a good energy. The sound was rough, as it was just a tiny "vocals only PA", but we made it work. We played...

Riffs, rap and bellies at Blowout day 2

Posted By on Sat, Apr 27, 2013 at 8:50 AM

The best laid plans and all that. When I get to the PNA tonight at 9pm to see out-of-towners Hunters, the first noticeable thing is that they aren’t in fact a two-piece, as I wrote in the blurb guide in the paper. Doh! To be fair, their press pics are...

(Running on ) Renewable Energy: Blowout 16

I don't know what came over me, but by the end of the set I was hanging off the edge of the stage. Bars of Gold -- Photo by: Kelly Bennett Part of that was due to the fact that there was no where to stand. Another part of...

Blowout 16 is on

Posted By on Fri, Apr 26, 2013 at 10:45 AM

Guest Blog by Frank Woodman (Caveman Woodman) I'm driving down 94 at 90 miles an hour. Just got out of work an hour early and I have Blowout fever. Trying to make Loretta Lucas, I fly up the back stairs of the Majestic with my backpack and have my first...

Big Guns at Blowout Day 1

Posted By on Fri, Apr 26, 2013 at 10:35 AM

Holy crap, last night was good. It’s Blowout time, ladies and gentlemen. It’s the time of year when we get to wallow in Detroit’s gloriously diverse and consistently awesome music scene like pigs in poop, pounding down tune after tune, fearing no consequence. We get to be greedy, gluttonous even,...
