It was Day two of the Hamtramck blowout
after getting wipe out after day one and writing my own account of day one and checking for photo and video of Day one, it good to know that the blow out was in my hometown for the next three nights.
the best part about this that i could goes out in my back year to see some great local bands.
and Since Thursday is a Work day this year the promoter push back the start times for Thursday about a Full hour and they speard the set times meaning the first band stated between 8-9 PM, this is good in past year where they all start at the same time and you have to split time two bands.
Not only that the weather which in past years have been snowy and cold with the temps on some years at about 10 with the wind chill at about -2, well yesterday i was in the low 50 with the same for tonight help with the hi at 64 and nice.
But it going to rain on Saturday, but it will rain early so i will be no problem, i Hope.
it was kind of quite no drama, expect for one drunk lady who was upset because she did not know there will be cover for the next three night for the right to get wasted too much.
Among the music highlight from Night two well it was all consertaed the kinght of Columbus hall in the city West Central side highlight by last year buzz band "The Silent years" but this was not your usual Silent years show it was a show with the five core member( Josh Epstein, Mike Majewski,Cassandra Verras,Ryan Clancy,and
