Blowout is back! 

The largest local rock fest of the known universe returns for the 15th time

Our little baby Blowout turns a sweet 15 

That's 14 blows below the belt so far from the known universe's largest local 

rock fest, one that defies physics and civics and all manner of icks. To celebrate, we've profiled some new artists you should know, and included a 

killer Q&A with living legend and honorary Detroiter Kim Fowley. See the handy, carry-along Blowout guide inside for complete date, time, venue and artist info, all of which can be found at blowout.metrotimes.com. Blowout 15 runs Wednesday, Feb. 29, through Saturday, March 3.
