17 days Untill
Dally in the Alley

well it been a quite day in the newsroom with a bunch a local news stuff which i will get to but if you have been noticed this blog sight it a little bit diffence, It still the same blog site at itcamefromculture.blogspot.com, it look the same but there is a slight diffence, because late sunday night it switch over to a new updated version of blogger.com which i quite like because you have to create HTML and CCS but since i dont know how to do that it was tought to do a a group of links on the side,so with the new interface will be more easy.

And a new feather that will be helpful for the daliy and weekly post you can now lable post on the blogger sight which will be good for this sight like The Main Story post and the regualr post like Gig Gudie monday, New Music Tuesday, and Film Gudie Friday, also there will be tags for Breaking Culture News and the speacl live and local post of the big event like this week prime time Emmys awards and if i ever write one the live review so this week end i may or may not update all the post since i started this blog on May 8th.

So this sight will get slightly better over time.

Now that i explaned the slightly differcen like (Which is not much)

Like i say there is no local news but there is this story that was is today Detroit Free Press because there was problums at the second show for Dave Chappelle's at the FOX, yes it was the second show at the fox, the first show (The 7:30PM Show,which was sold out a few weeks ago) went well, but the second show was a little tought accroding to today Free Press that fans at the 10:30 PM Show turn it into a heckler fest.

a E-mail told the Free Press "The loud drunks shouting things and the people in the front row standing up and talking to him. He only got through maybe 40% of his material. I felt bad for him. I don't know how the early show went but if I were him I would think twice about coming back.", that smae E-mailer say that "The 10:30 show was the worst I have ever seen,"

The Free Press was specaltion that the 10:30 Crowd was pleantly lubricated before the show and also the 10:30 Crowd was having trouble finding parking because the crowd for the first show and the tigers game was getting out and headed home that delay cause Chappelle second show to go on at midnight, Ouch

well my advice to anyone hosting a musicical act or a comic at the State Theater, Fox Theater, City Theater(Old Second City Downtown location), Dertoit Oprea House, or the Gem Theater when trying to book two show on the same night check the lions and tiger schucel so you wont have traffic problme with fans who going to the show or gig and fans coming or going to the game.

And i forgot about two gig i forgot in yesterday post

one if you save $52.50 it will by you a ticket to the 40th anniversary of the Grande Ballroom at the Royal Oak Music Theatre in Downtown Royal Oak, The Card for that show which will begin at 6 PM will have 3rd Power (with Drew Abbott, who went on to play with Bob Seger's Silver Bullet Band) will "kick out the jams" a la another Grande attraction, the MC5. Then comes the Crazy World of Arthur Brown followed by Big Brother and the Holding Company ( Joplin's band) with Canned Heat rounding out the musical tribute.

Dave Miller (Grande's original emcee) returns to Detroit to host the scheduled seven-hour event. Original Grande artists Gary Grenshaw and Carl Lungren will also appear, and there'll be a tribute to Russ Gibb --the "Paul McCartney is dead" guy and counterculture legend -- who ran the Grande.
