And this week at Detroit Film Theatre at the D.I.A.


From Canadian wunderkind Guy Maddin (Brand Upon the Brain! The Saddest Music in the World) comes another joyously demented, deeply witty work; this time, it’s a personally narrated fever dream about young Guy’s childhood in the wintry hometown of his memories. Maddin describes My Winnipeg’s disarming blend of documentary and surrealism as “docutasia,” a singular vision that appears to be a long-lost artifact from a movie history that never quite existed. Winner, Best Canadian Feature, Toronto Film Festival.
The Creature from the Black Lagoon

In the beloved 3-D Creature from the Black Lagoon, a scientific expedition travels up the Amazon and encounters an astounding amphibian with humanoid features. The stalwart explorers (Richard Carlson, Julie Adams and Richard Denning) are amazed and terrified as they wrestle (literally) with the incredible Gill-Man! (79 min.)


Based on a story by Ray Bradbury, It Came from Outer Space stars Richard Carlson as a man who believes he’s witnessed a spaceship’s crash landing – though local residents (mistakenly) dismiss it as a meteor. One by one, their minds are taken over by “it,” and it’s up to Carlson and Barbara Rush to stand up to the one-eyed monster! Both films will be shown in the miracle of “anaglyphic” 3-D. Red and blue glasses will be provided! (81 min.)

Playing at the Discount theaher

Live and Local Review - 2008 Comerica Cityfest

JULY 6TH, 2008


Now don't take offence with the title of the post because Detroit got really Funk-a- Filed on the five and Final day of the Comerica Cityfest, never in my seven years of going to this event as a regular Joe fan or a regular Joe doing a indie blog site i have never ever seen the parking lot been this pack for a free gig in a long time, wired al was close but the closer on the final of the Mid-year gig put all the other acts i have seen over the years put all other to shame.

When i got the main stage at about 5:30 PM the entry point to the main stage near W. grand and third st. was fill up and it was tough to see the main stage from all the way in the back and it was crowed all the was thought on the parking lot, in the V.I.P. tent, all eight floors of the new center parking lot, on East portion of W.Grand, on West Grand Blvd. on the food court, Across the street from the other side on West Grand Blvd., on the Detroit city clerk Parking lot on the other side of the street, and Even on near by third st.

What ever power of the funk father brought in the massive in a crowd of what am i thinking between 2,000 to 4,000 in that one spot alone just to be close to, near to, or just to listen to the on of the Founding father of funk, the best view i got to see was the four floor in a nine story parking lot even that was three deep in fact almost every floor have fans watching and listen to the gig in almost mid 80's weather and withe the body heat it was in the upper 90's

After almost a full hour i gave up and when to the park stage, but before i when over to the park stage i got give my take of show before i left it was a great show over all as the stage plug in to WE-FUNK his band Parliament/Funkadelic warm up to the crowd for a good ten mintens and the Funkfather good up on stage and play a lot of the old school funk classic for two solid hours they play true the heat of the detroit crowd, now i talk to a few friends after the gig and really like the show some have good view so all around the George Clinton & Parliament/Funkadelic was a total smashing success in almost Evey way.

after i gave up after a hour i then when to the main stage to see "American Mars" who play a great set and was a good Plan B for those who couldn't the Funk Father also a good plan B was S.S.M. i only saw them for about 15 minutes and they was good, then even ask George Clinton to play with them, i don't if he hear them.

Also i got to see the local Family folk rock band "The Woodman" who have a great vibe and great tunes and was very good warm up for the act ahead and not after that i also saw the best crew in all of Detroit rock and roll Cetan Clawson, i only saw the last three song and sound great and meet up with 2/3 of his nice crew [Cetan crew is his two band mates and his girlfriend.]

After almost five days of going back and forth Covering gig and typing them and after a visit to the near by norther light lounge it was over and done as i warp up coverage of cityfest for avderher year as i come down after five days and get back to following live and local coverage of Indie music in and out of Detroit.



Today is July 8th and on this day in 1947 although the US government say it did not happend there was reports of a UFO Crash somewhere in Roswell, New Mexico, it was reported by redensent the government say it was a weather balloon that crash and you thought this blog site was crazy.

also on this not one but two important music event in history rock music, on this date in 1956 Bill Haley & His Comets hit no.1 with "Rock Around the Clock" which was feather as the opening theme to one of the most conserveral movie of all time and not only that started a rock and roll riot Rock came on to the scene and still rock and rolling ever since expect on Radio where they play crap and after 2 A.M. at leased in Detroit.

and 20 years Later on this day in 1976 for some unknown reason only know to them and anyone who follow as still asking to this day "Starland Vocal Band" reach no.1 on the pop chart with one of the sappy song i have ever here with "Afternoon Delight" out of there self-titled album and when on to win the Grammy for "Best New Act" in 1976 which mean one thing in music you will never get hear of aging and not even there own variety show the following summer did not help out much with a head writer who previous job was a weatherman at the then ABC station in Indianapolis WLWI-TV (now called WTHR-TV, which is the NBC Station in Indianapolis) [David Letterman]

Ed Sullivan and the Gateway to America

Tuesday - 5:33 PM EDT

Joan Rivers marks the sixtieth anniversary of the first-ever Ed Sullivan Show.

Ed Sullivan began his career with a newspaper column and radio show. He moved on to hosting CBS' Toast of the Town in 1948, and made it so popular that it was re-named after him.

The show introduced rock 'n' roll to the baby boomers, and became a vital gateway for British acts intent on breaking America.

Elvis Presley's appearance in September 1956 became notorious for his performance of Hound Dog, but also commanded the largest single audience in television history at 60 million viewers.

Likewise, the Beatles' debut in February 1964 effectively kick-started the British invasion and confirmed the group as a global phenomenon.

Sullivan's unprecedented success came at a time when it was possible for television to unite an audience. With the advent of the Vietnam War the show's ratings suffered, steadily declining until the final show in June 1971.

With contributions from colleagues, performers and critics, Joan will explore how television first captured a mass audience and made superstars of its guests.

Behind the Velvet Rope: Studio 54 Revisited

Saturday - 2:04 EDT

As part of BBC Radio 2's Dance Season, Boy George looks back on the most decadent disco in history: Studio 54.

The New York nightclub became symbolic of the disco era - and the world's first super club. Its hedonistic excesses were the stuff of legend, yet within three years it was gone.

Featuring interviews with Carmen D'Alessio, Nile Rodgers, and roller-skating drag queen Rollerena, as well as bartenders, dancers and a rare interview with the gatekeeper of cool himself, Mark Benecke.

Marc Riley's Musical Time Machine

Monday 6:30 PM EDT

Programme 4 - Nicky Wire

The Musical Time Machine journeys back to 1996, where following the release of the hugely successful album Everything Must Go, Manic Street Preachers were in the public's eye.

They were also famous for the disappearance of bandmate Richey James, the previous year.

Nicky Wire joined Jo Wiley on her Radio 1 show. Tired of speaking on behalf of his absent bandmate, Wire gave a frank and honest view of his experiences of the past year, and his hopes for the future.

Broadcasting extracts from that interview, Marc will also speak to Jo Wiley about her own memories of that show.

because if you have not read today Detroit Free Press
or not read the Detroit Free Press on-line at

Because in today Free Feather a Poem "White Stripes" and "Raconteurs" front man Jack White he wrote the poem for the Detroit Free Press in the Sunday entertainment section which have been the tried most E-mail story on the site today.

He pen the poem because he was frustrated by a sense that his thoughts about Detroit have been misrepresented since he left the town almost two years ago and ever since have been bashing in all the Music press ever since.

I have put a link to it right here and repost the poem this week on the sight.
But here the Link to the poem:

Live and Local Review - 2008 Comerica Cityfest

JULY 7th, 2008

Don't Worried Kids the real music being at 5 P.M.

well it great day to go to a festival enjoy ice cream, play tag around the park and sing-along song and then we when to the the stage and saw a very cool singing duo and play some some cool song and was asking in believed in world peace and go to school every day and become one of them and to rules the world, oh boy this is the best day ever.

O.K. the Above statement i wrote did not happened yesterday at cityfest, now just to start i have no knock at the new center council who have done a great job so far which this year cityfest mixing the difference music mixed.

But if you ever read this blog site over the last two years you probable know i write about the indie music etiher here in the 313 outside the 313 and some from the proud country of England, but a you know i try to avoid all the bad music like American idols, over-produce top 40 music and not only that kid music.

so i did not go to cityfest early on Saturday like in years past because this year the mix it giving the whole Saturday afternoon to family so mom and dad can thak the kids so and the band they have at the main stage was Disney music stars Aly and A.J. as you know if you get popular stars like it going to be a frenzy of music that i can not stand and not only that it a little too crazy some body told me that over 200 kids was at the stage at about 9 AM a near two hours before city fest open and almost five full hours.

all for a made for tv group, and i was thinking what will these you kids will be thinking about music in the Next ten years and they will be think did i listen to that, i should know Before i broke pre-teen phase of my life i listen to almost the same kind of music on TV and on the radio but after listing the same crap over and over aging finally i found my indie Garden angle in 1996 [Thanks Juliana Hatfield] and the same Stars who ruled the charts way back when have now been downgraded to D-list star on bad really show on VH1.

So in the instead of my own music taste i stay away for cityfest as far away as possible from the hours of noon to 6 PM and during that time i was typing the friday report and when to my friend Teri-Leyn moving sale [she moving to Poland] so i drop by and stay there for about two hours and move on i got to the 2nd downtown [new Center]at about before 6 PM and get ready to listen to real music for the day.

and i got to tell you the guy who producer the park stage Sterling know his music and his put on a great stage on this day as i saw for the first time the wonderful band from mid-Michigan called "Lighting Love" and there sound is so quirky and so fun and so lovely on stage there lead singer Leah Diehl remind me of Joanna Newsome without the Harp.

They won over the crowd sterling ask them to play a encore but they run out of songs so they play one of there 1st song over aging i thought there are a real good band will hear them over the years.

They have a very good warm up act was Sliverghost the band who made up Marcie Bolen and Deleano Acevedo and they were good but not at the level of there gig at the Hamtramck blowout, i not saying there was nothing wrong with the set they was fun to listen too with there mix with mix of Lo-fi new wave and rock style and was looking great up there not only that it was great to see marcie again up there in the Cityfeast stage which was cool.

but the crowd that got a great draw was Culture city under the radar fave "Great Lakes Myth Society" now i have seen them ten times already and there one of the best live band who know to put on a good show not only that this was a make up show because for a gig that was also wash out in Ann Arbor the same system that wash out Wednesday line up at cityfest.

also i saw the second half of the "the Beggers" who put on really great show as they was harming it up on the Pure Detroit Second Ave. Stage and they know who to have fun which there style of rock which have a frat party style to it.

One one more day to go at Cityfest before we all go back to work on Monday, it going to be a nice all around for the last day so enjoy it and i hear a crazy rumors that a Funkadelic Mothership will land in front of the mainstage at about 5:30 PM and what i have been told the mothership will bring in the funk, i did know what that mean but when i see it i get back to you.


Today live at Cityfest with today 4Cast

Well this is it, ther final day of the five day Free music and civic gig fest, now unlike the first four day today hours is a little bit diffence it close at 8 PM today so you will have a little bit of day light all day today
