Today Post is Linkapalooza

It was a very good weekend For music in this part of the Coutry.

First i should tell you about the Detroit Story and for me it was about the hugh Mega show with The Flaming Lips, Sonic Youth, And the Go Team who played a very Excenlent Show at the State Theater on Friday Night and i was lucky because ticket was sold out i think the day of the show, but it was a good show, i half was y thought writing a review of the show, and then after the show when up to the Stick Complex to see the Tale end of the Dials and SSM one year annuversier gig(there first gig was at the Garden Bowl), It was nice to Catch up with the girls from the Dials Who got away from Chicago and Lollpalzooa as far as possable, and did go to the Detroit Urban Craft Fair for a little bit on Saturday, Not a big Craft guy but Check it out.

And After that did nothing for the entire week end, did Typing and watching Lolly in the Blueroom. and doing a lot or working some post and Following the World Seriers of Poker on-line.(There olny 36 players left as of this typing)

but there was not some rock action in the Detroit area at the same time as that mega show at the state, The Detroit News did Semi-Final No.1 of the Sonic Summer: A BAttle of the bands as three Bands pefrom to the Judges Cobalt Party Revolution, Free Element, and Search Party all tried to impress the Judges which include Angelique Brown, owner of Take A Look Artistry; Maria Garcia, a promoter for Urban Organic, a Detroit soul/hip-hop music promotions company; and Ben Beverly, an artist development representative for EMI Records.

And After all three band played there was one winners and that band who is going on to the Big final gig on Sept. 1 on The Detroit News/Comcast stage at the Chrysler Arts, Beats & Eats festival in Pontiac is

The Five peice Band for Detroit rock City Free Element (Andrew Perry, vocals; Brian Carney, bass; Dan Rosenberg, guitar; Jake Bayer, drums; Randy Roberts, guitar)Accroing to today detroit News they won the Crowd with there similar to the modern pop punk fashioned by nationally known band Fall Out Boy, stole the show with the high-energy melody "Next to Me."

"I think that we came out and played like we wanted," said lead singer Andy Perry, 24. "We showed everyone what Free Element is about."

Final Band No.2 will be pick on Thursday at the Magic Bag(22920 Woodward Ave., Ferndale) as Detroit Classic rock and soul band Jive, Berkley Power popster The Prime Ministers, and Dearborn Pop/rock Sunday Painters will do battle for final spot Numbers two.

It not been a good weekend for begin a fan of Canadian indie music, First st the begin of the weekend Death From Above 1979 thur in the towel for the last time as they announced that Bassist Jesse F. Keeler and drummer Sebastien Grainger goes there separt ways that copled with the news from that the blues-punks band the Deadly Snakes have also call it a day.

"The main reason is that it's been like 10 years's not fun like it used to be and it's not enough of a career to justify the lack of fun that we're having," Maxwell McCabe-Lokos aka Age of Danger said to the on-line Mag. "It's not excruciating by any stretch, but I think that we're all getting a little tired of going on tour and playing in Ozona, Texas for two or three people. Some people can do that until their eyes fall out.

"I think we went about as far as we could with this band...and we're all still friends and the main thing is that we were friends before, and we wanted to remain friends after, so we decided to call it a day.

There last show will be in Toronto on August 25 ay the Horseshoe Tavern, their last album, 2005's Porcella was is currently up for the Polaris Prize (Canada's version of the Mercury Prize), They may released a recording from the upcoming Horseshoe gig with some B-sides tossed in as there final released.


And spaking about Break-up Last week Sleater-Kinney did play there Final ever Washington DC gig after there 48-hour delay from there secuald show was postphone becasuse of a blon Trasfromer cause by last week East coast Heat wave in the DC and Balitmore area, But Ted Leo did one up the girls last week according to several Pitchfork reader Ted Leo was playing Wednesday night at Baltimore's Ottobar, the power went out 3/4 of the way through Leo's set. one Reader Ira wrote in E-mail to say that as soon as the lights went out, Leo led the crowd in singing "Since U Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson, "Maps" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey. "Then he grabbed an acoustic guitar [and] played 2 songs by flashlight."

Another reader, says one of those songs was a Lungfish cover, and that after it was over, Leo "promptly fell off the stage."

"I've never seen anything like it at a show before. He literally fell off the stage, there was a huge crash, the crowd gasped because there were no lights on or anything, and then you heard the acoustic guitar strumming again. Incredible...

"At that point, everyone was asked to leave the club, so Ted took to the streets and gave an impromptu concert out in front of the Ottobar for his fans."

Now that is deacationt big time.
