Blue Moon in June - July 10 - July 11 - CAID


The Blue Moon in June festival celebrates its third year of commingling indie rock, pop, electro-dance and psychedelic rock, inside the cozy scuffed space of the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit. The psychedelic barbecued smorgasbord features 20 BANDS and spans two days, July 10 and July 11 - (with the option of grabbing some grub and rolling out a sleeping bag on the grassy knoll-like fenced-lot beside the CAID - wake up the next morning beside your similarly ear-fried/beer-swathed comrades, stretch, greet the sun and step aside as the next ten bands load in for another consecutive night of non stop music. 5141 Rosa Parks Blvd 48208
as Oscillating Fan Club guitarist Pierce Reynolds put it:
"I think the blue moon in june is best described as a mysterious concoction of incredible music and bands and friends old and new celebrating Detroit and Summer the way it should be, with loud, psychedelic, garage-informed and just plain garage poppy rock. If you can dance and you like caterpillar-like fuzzy melodies, I think you could do a lot worse..." - Pierce Reynolds" (Deep Cutz 6/26/08)
