Oh, Detroit...

And the haterdom continues! This time about another band (and subsequent festival). I will agree with a few points made in the comments... The fest is very one-sided*, Ryan Allen will make two (maybe even more?) appearances (but I wouldn't go as far as saying it's Ryan Allen's Fest**), and unicorns DO exist***.

Enough about Detour... Let's talk about the idea of someone starting shit with a semi-popular local group so that other people would then talk about their band and they would get some attention (and it's something that I didn't even think of---GENIUS!). Seriously, the thought never crossed my mind. But that is such a good idea! I need to be more devious and mean and cutthroat with this blog. Or I am never going to get mentioned in Metro Times.

Someone asked me today what I have been listening to in my car recently. The following CDs have been in heavy rotation (I do not have an iPod, don't hate on me for it):
1. Midnight Boom, The Kills
2. This Gift, Sons and Daughters
3. a mix CD with cocorosie, Rainer Maria, Mando Diao, and Jarvis Cocker, among others
4. Pleasure Mountain, Champions of Breakfast

Why isn't your band's CD listed? Because I am broke. But if you want to give me a CD for free, I'll review it here. That is to say it might not be a good review. I might talk some shit, depending on how cool your band is.

I want attention. That's why I started this blog, right? RIGHT?!?!

*I'm not hatin' here, I'm just saying it is obvious
**bitter much?
***what a cool "genetic flaw!" I want one!

I went over and read some of the seems like a silly thing to get worked up over. The one guy seems so upset you'd think his band got passed over to play (maybe that's why he's so bummed about people with multiple bands playing (and I know Ryan Allen isn't the only one in more than one band playing)).

I'll look for you at CoB later!

I like how you just used parenthesis IN parenthesis. Fuck grammar! Yeeeeah!

True about the multiple band thing. For instance, Zoos of Berlin, Pas/Cal, and the Pop Project have some members in common.

Sometimes awesome people are just in more than one awesome band.

Yeah, I do the parenthesis in parenthesis thing a lot. It's kind of a bad habit in my writing.

So, does that mean you're going to be in about seventy bands soon like everyone else? ;)
