The Indie New Round Up

Now you talk about a day this is it.

Yes there was big news around the Detroit Music Secen today i dont know where to being, But if you are not in the know or just not insert, this is Big News, first let start off with the big news of the day.

De-tour the Locially Base pop culture Blog which start in May of this year and had there Launch party this September at the Stick compelx and at the CAID to a huge respond will do it aging, Next spring there are putting on the De-Tour Rock City Music Fessival that will be held next spring at the Majestic Theatre Center[Magic Stick, Majestic Theater, and Garden Bowl] . in what the press released put out today that the msuic Festival will echoing the music and mayhem of Detour’s now-infamous September ‘07 launch party.

The Detour Rock City Music festival will have over 60 local acts are scheduled to perform, and it will indie rock as alway but it will inclued other music gender as well and that inclued pop, hip-hop, noise music, metal, and more.

The Line up will not be announced untill December, but this part of the story is very, inserting as well, the dates for De-tour Rock City, it will be held on Wednesday, March 5th to Saturday, March 8th, now you are asking why is that insering if any one who know the Detroit Music as well that is the same exctic time as the Metrotimes Hamtramck Blowout which as you already know start on a wednesday and end on a Saturday and the Pre Party before the blow out in Hantramck is at guess where Majestic Theatre Center.

The Moment the PR came down to the Reguarl Press and the blogging Press [This One Included]many of the readers was posting commet began calling it the end of the Hamtramck blow out with Post like this:

"Taking one look at this and one can infer that the annual Hamtramck Metro Times Blowout has celebrated it’s final year."

Either that, or it’s going to be a head-to-head battle royal.

From the De-Tour Site

“Let’s ruin the other guy’s party by having ours on the same night. That way we can see who gets more people to come and who is the better magazine.”

From the Web Vomit Site

that leave a big question: and that is Will there be a Hamtramck Blowout this year? now i have Been reading the this on the Detroit Base Blog all day and that is a big question and one other factor to think off the publisher and co-founder De-tour is Anthony Morrow who was the Ad Market Dirctor for the Metro Times for a number of years, but after this year Blowout Morrow and Other MT staffer that include Ex-music Editor Johnny Loftus either Left, Quit, or Got Fired.

So one have to wonder have to wonder is this payback to the metrotimes?, I dont know because i did not contact either the Metrotimes or Detour For commet, but for one thing i know for sure they will not be going Head to Head on the same weekend because they made spilt the fans down the Middle.

One Possable that maybee the metrotimes may move the Blow out for a week later to March 12th to the 15th, but the bigger problum is would fan goes to the festival a week later, the Blowout have always been on the First weekend of March, would the music fans would go to two festival back to back.

I was wipeout back in Septmeber by going to Four Music Festival as yes they where all back[Hamtramck Festival] to back[Dally in the Alley] to back[The People Art Festival at the Russell insteral Center] to back[The Detour Launce Party].

Or have the last Note have been played at the Blowout, now just to let you know where only Four Months away untill the the event, so between Now and Early March keep up date as if we know anything on who playing the Rock City Music Festival, But for now you can check on the De-Tour web sight at
