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.

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 middle...

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...
