Honestly, the first annual Trip Metal Fest, slated to occur across Detroit on Memorial Day weekend, just keeps getting better and better as more is revealed.

Links to purchase tickets to individual events are here. Individual shows are $20, while Trinosophes events are $5, and Third Man shows are free.

Three-day passes are available right here. They run $75, which will get you in to all of the gigs at El Club, a special poster, the interview events at Trinosophes, one drink ticket, and all related events (with the sole exception of the Everything is Terrible! screening). I know that's some bank, but you'd spend at least that driving to Chicago and back to see just one of these performers on any other weekend.

Today we learn that Pauline Oliveros is participating—long distance, and via an interview—but still, she is such a deep practitioner of heavy and heady drone-based zones that this is seriously exciting. It also means that two founding members of the San Francisco Tape Music Center will be part of the fest!
And we finally get absolute confirmation that Marshall Allen and Danny Ray Thompson from the Sun Ra Arkestra will perform live with Hieroglyphic Being!

And Andrew WK will perform with Nate Young in a set that will probably be better than AWK's Blowout (RIP) performance of last year; certainly it will be a lot noisier, and Bulb-ier.

I adore the interactive, thoroughly plunderphonic collage films of the L.A.-based Everything Is Terrible! crew; the fact that there is now also a double set of their work is absolutely the cherry on the top of a lot of other cherries. That event will cost a little bit more money.

And then there's the sweet, late-night dance party at Menjo's; plus stuff that's already been revealed before such as the amazing Morton Subotnick, Tar Pit, Viki and Magas, Viands, Sick LlamaRubber (O) Cement (which is the newer project by Grux from Caroliner!), Creode, Wolf Eyes, Baltimore's genius person Lexie Mountain, and so much more.

This might be the most exciting new festival to hit in Detroit in a dozen years, friends. People are totally going to travel to town for this, so be prepared to fight for parking, or to have to wait another few minutes for your coffee in the morning at Anthology, Trinosophes, or Astro.
