This week is one of thouse weeks where one movie get all press because one something or one thing of greather important it get special attenion more the the surporrting cast, since a untimely event back in February the top released of this week have more meaning other than the script other than what it all about but who is in it

The early review that i have read it look like the heath protrail of the clown prince of crime [which have been play in the past by Jack Nickinson in "Batman" in 1989 and Cesar Romero in the 1960's tv seriers] is one of the best perfromnce of the joker ever on the on screen.

Tell No One [NR]
[description from Rotten Tomatoes at]

Francois Cluzet stars in this French thriller from director Guillaume Canet. Eight years after the heinous murder of his wife, doctor Alex Beck receives an ominous email from an unknown source. The message contains a video image of Alex's thought-to-be dead wife in real time.

Plauing at the DFT at the DIA


A smash hit in Italy, My Brother is an Only Child reunites director Luchetti with the screenwriters of his acclaimed The Best of Youth. Set in a small town in the 1960s and 70s, it’s the story of two brothers who want to change the world – one as a prime mover in the local Communist Party, the other as a Fascist. What begins as a simple tale of sibling rivalry becomes an indelible portrait of the social upheavals of those turbulent times, as well as an unexpected love story. An intensely satisfying cinematic work about dreams and disillusionments, My Brother harks back to the exuberance of the early classics by Bellochio and Bertolucci.

And playing on the Saturday Double Creaher
feather at 3:00 PM on Saturday


These sequels to the 1957 classic The 7th Voyage of Sinbad both feature fantastic creatures from special-effects wizard Ray Harryhausen. In The Golden Voyage of Sinbad, the fearless sailor (played by John Phillip Law) reconstructs a golden map that leads him to strange lands and amazing adventures. (105 min.)


Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger finds our intrepid captain (Patrick Wayne) saddled with the task of restoring back into human form a prince who’s been transformed into a baboon just before his coronation day. Harryhausen’s last film in the Sinbad cycle was nearly two years in production, and looks great on the big, big screen! (113 min.)

It's 9 O'Clock

and last night was the longest all star game in major league history where it took almost 15 innings until almost 1:40 AM in the morning

as Michael Young's sacrifice fly score in Justin Morneau as he beat the thrown to win the game 4-3 in the fourth and Final all star game at old Yankee Stadium's in NYC [they move into the new Yankee Stadium across the street next season].

Link to the Game Winning run

That is more fitting giving the music they used for ads for the game on FOX.

that is no surprise the used music with the word "waiting" in it conserding we waited for three hours since the last run that tie the game 3-3 but the game is a instant classic.

and for those of you want to know who the music on the ad's it was one of the ten best in the culture city festive 50 back in 2006 and there piloting the big time follow up.

The Band is name after convenience store in Silver Lake, CA and they are know as the "Silversun Pickups" and the song is Lazy Eyes.

The Live and Local Review

Gigs in Detroit
in-Between July 3rd - July 9th

in the last two weeks as i get off the Comerica Cityfest Beat including the last post which i posted last Sunday and in between i went to three shows away from the New Center Area, i was going to do three separt post but i have to little time to because i am doing a gig tomorrow night so i decied to lump together all in one big which each one getting three or four paragraph each, so here we go

The Dials
The Belmont
July 3rd

This was the only post cityfest gig i went to [if you count the last minuet relocation of the Wednesday[7/2] gig at the Garden bowl] all cityfest because they are my closest friends in Chicago as "The Dials" played there Detroit CD release gig for there New Album "Amoeba Amore" which is released on Ann Arbor No Fun Records

It was real good to see the all girls plus one guy group back playing aging new Music aging after a real tough couple of years after there drummer and the husband of the lead singer where killed in a awful car wreck, so the New record is really a fresh new star.

The show was a wonderful as they played mostly for there new fun recording which include "Antonio", "Bloodsuckers", "Aim and Shoot" and a Cover of Foreigner "Urgent" which is way better the the original which was cool.

The girls Rebecca Crawford (vocals/bass), Emily Dennison (Keyborad), Patti Gran (vocals/guitar), and Chad Romanski (drums) sound really great with there cool fun loving sound and not only that Rebecca Crawford look pretty good wheid Converse Chuck Tarloy [that shoes for those not in the know].

The Opened up with "The Coronados" as they play there way modern day version of glam rock with Rick Lappin haveing fun rocking out there, and Melody Licious giving some good vocals, also playing was "The Dialtones but i just came in from cityfest so i catch the tail end.

Outrageous Cherry with
Troy Gregory and the Stepsisters
Bohemian National Home
July 8th

Now i was so wipe out for almost five days of covering Cityfest, i was so beat but i had to go to a last minutes show in the middle of nowhere because one of my closet friend Stepsisters Teri Lynn Walker was moving away along with her husband [married last year]was moving to surband Portland, Oergan to stars a new life with a new Job[so mean a loss of a Michigan job.]

So the last gig for a wield [until the debut of Troy Gregory epic movie World war Love]was at a place that i have been there twice but it was at the middle of nowhere location on Detroit East side near the Michigan ave Mixing bowl near I-75 at the Bo House.

The gig was a very laid back affair as Outrageous Cherry step out of it shell to play for the 1st time to test out the new songs for there upcoming CD which will be released at the end of the year and there new song sound really great as well they played the classic songs we all know and love including from there awesome last album Our Love Will Change The World (2005) and Stay Happy (2006).

But Me and about the 20 friends of the scene came to see troy, Mary Alice and Teri Lynn played for almost the last time and it was a really good gig a perfit send off for one of my best friend in the scene who i know well for the last four year my 1st gig was i think 2004 at small in hamtramck.

Now despite report that was spearing around before the gig this would be the last stepsister show, there was a post that the will get together to do a west coast tour and perform for troy Georgy film "World War Love"

Les Breastfeeders
Lager House
July 9th

And the third and last gig on triple gig Parlay was also my 1st gig at the lager House since the change of ownership at the end of last year, i did made a brife stop after the St. Patrick day parade back in March and i was thinking that they over green it so i was thinking i would never go the the Lager until there was a act that i like, well i when to one.

it was the who i was a fan back in 2006 and was a fan when i saw there gig live webcast on CBC radio 3 "See Vous Play" live from the Kool Haus in Toronto back in 2006, it was the Montreal French-speaking band Les Breastfeeders and they put on a really awesome show.

now even the whole band sing in french you don't have to know what there singing there music is so fun to listen to they was fun to watch including tambourine man Johnny Maldoror now he was all over the place playing the tambourine and it was a little nut, also i like one of the best looking guitar out there Suzie McLelove she have a great voice.

if you wan to learn more you can pick there 2006 released 'Les matins de grands soirs' which was released on viney or the 2004 debut "Déjeuner sur l'herbe"

Now that i am all catch up with all the that happened since the end of cityfest, i be reporting on all the gig the best i could and don't for get stay tune for detail on my live DJ Night which is called "Culture City Live 3"

It 9 O'Clock

and it was on this day in 1956 the last of "the Ramones" Marky Ramone was born, he is the only Ramone that is left that is still alive today, But did you know he was born last of the four "Dee Dee Ramone" was born 1st, and then Johnny and then out friend in heaven "Joey"

Now for a moment some of the The Ramons "Pinhead"
Gaba, gaba, hey

on now on this day where former professional wrestler and Governor of Minnesota
Jesse Ventura[57] and comedian Eddie Griffin [40] was born let hope the Drive to the record store is much better than a than a drive around the track[see video below]

It's 9 O'Clock

And if you read my early post today i was going to mention i was going to a video post of a songs off one of the good album out this year.

I brought it at the Record time in Roseville after i brought a ton of CD on the last day at the Record time in Ferdale back in March because of who was in the CD

I mention two Clues,
a Video Post and this one clue

"Sister of Bones"

The Video which i found on youtube was the singing parts from the 2003 X-mas Comedy Elf staring Will Ferrell, it have been one of the cult scene of the film where the person in the shower sing "Baby, It's Cold Outside" wield Will Ferrell sing outside.

That singer is actress Zooey Deschanel who may remember her in films like Almost Famous (2000), The Hitchhiker's Guide To the Galaxy (2005) and the recent sci-fi The Happening (2008)which was released back in June

and she is the sister of Elimy Deschanel who played
"Bones" every Monday night of FOX
so that where the clue "Sister of Bones" come from.

This year she made her recording debut with the help of M. Ward released She & Him Volume One back in march of this year.

There have not been a video of the album until now

there 1st video is called "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?"

NOTE: if you do not like cartoon violent or don't like bad thing in a video
you don't have to push the arrow pointing to your right
But this is a really pretty video

Prisoner 46664 - Mandela at 90

Tuesday - 5:33 PM EDT

Michael Beurk pays tribute and marks the 90th birthday of the world's most famous ex-prisoner - Nelson Mandela.

Finally released after 27 years in prison, Nelson Mandela became the first President of South Africa in a fully-democratic election.

Since retiring in 1999, he has remained far from idle. With HIV/AIDS sweeping across South Africa, he has led the campaign to raise global awareness of the disease, beginning with the setting up of the Nelson Mandela Foundation and the Childrens' Fund.

Using music as the basis of his campaign, diverse artists from across the globe have held concerts to raise awareness - from the Soweto Gospel Choir through to Razorlight and Queen. As a symbol of the fight against the disease, Mandela has allowed his former prisoner number - 46664 - to be used.

Featuring contributions from Peter Gabriel, Annie Lennox and Yvonne Chaka Chaka. The Programme also includes interviews from those working at the Foundation, those closest to him and ordinary South Africans living each day with HIV and Aids.

Monday - 6:30 PM

Programme 5 - Captain Beefheart and Tina Turner

It's two for the price of one this week, as we revisit the years 1976 and 1980 respectively and feature interviews from two of modern music's innovators.

In the year that Agatha Christie died and Prime Minister Harold Wilson resigned, Tina Turner's life was in turmoil - both professionally and personally - following rumours of a split fom husband and singing partner, Ike. We feature extracts of her talking candidly about her life.

We then go forward to 1980, the year in which John Lennon was killed, Reagan beat Carter to become the US President, and war broke out between Iran and Iraq.

One of music's most daring, creative and infuential artists, Captain Beefheart, joined David Hepworth at Radio 1 to speak about his loves and passions.

Post Cityfest Coverage a week later.

I am Writing this on July 13th almost one week after the 2008 Version of this year Comerica Cityfest and i almost recover for the five days of live gigs on the street of West Grand Blvd. and Second street.

I have a Sore thorte For about last Saturday to the end of the week, but i am OK now, I think this year Cityfest was a big time Sessect with George Clinton &
Parliament/Funkadelic top them all with that concert which last almost two full hours Spill over to the parking deck to W. Grand and to near by tried street it look like almost everybody try to see George Clinton by with that size of a crowd it was thought to see, the sound was good but i gave up after almost after a hour because it was too hot.

The Whole weekend was full of people lineing up to buy food with there food tickets and it was pack with a lot of long line and which ask the question among some this if the festival outgrown the area [W. Grand Blvd. Between 3rd and Cass and Second between Lothrop Road and W. Milwaukee St.].

I don't think so i know it have grown over the years and it have a little out grown, but not that much.

the whole festival recover form a day one wash out when rain swept thur the area it rain so much it force "De La Soul" to cancelled and a lot of other bands to relocated there set to the garden blow at the stick complex after a bunch phone call and texting to stick management to play there.

After that day was wash out it was nice every day after that which was nice.

as for my top act at Cityfest
he are a few highlights

George Clinton & Parliament/Funkadelic

OK i gave up after almost a hour of tring to see the funk father, but i did hear a half of his classic set and it sound so great after all those years.

The Saturday night Line-up at the park stage [Silverghost, Lightening Love, Great Lakes Myth Society]

Next to me know alot about music, Stirling a ture rock and roll fan and icon of the scene and know to program one stage and he did that back to back to back and put a really good mix of quirky, fun, and enjoyable night of rock music.

The Readies

Danny Kroha is still rocking and still rolling after almost 20 years and this is the latest on this legion Detroit guitarist after they put a old school sounding set which is really great, one of the band to watch.

Broken Social Scene

Alright there was no Fiest, Amy Milain, or Emily hands, or any other female and Kevin Drew had a bad back he play Thu the show, despite all that the show was really a great to see a great band that have the sprite and very good.

The Four-Hour Friends

And this band i really like a good lay back with a very good mix of members who is really good and have good song and they look great on Stage.

If i have any advice for how to improve there is one issued i would like to see i would like to see a improvement on the whether or not the band would go on after bad weather is in the area, it was frustrating to see wheter or not the "De La Soul" and i wait for about two hours, but i was told it take about a 30 minutes to set up aging for the music to start and they ran out of time and "De La Soul" was a total loss.

So this complete this blog site coverage of Comerica City Fest for a another year will do this aging Next year and now a little rest to do other things on the blog site with playing for "Culture City Live 3" which should be fun and hope to do the full Dally in the alley in September"
