It's either 40 years ago, and it's Woodstock - or it's this upcoming weekend, in the Metro area..., what could be one of the most daunting weekends we've ever faced, in terms of entertainment option - and huddled populace
Down the list....
The Fucking Awesome Fest - inside/throughout the Majestic Theatre complex - 80 bands! Thursday Aug 13 - through - Sunday Aug 16

There's also Scarlet Oaks at Northern Lights Lounge (Aug 15)
and The Rue Moor Counts at the Lager House (Aug 15)
and then also, though I'm not sure I need to mention it - there's the mess of babyboomers with buffed and belching cars, clogging up the main drag of transportation...reliving the bygone days of their 20's, whilst the actual days of other people's 20's, (those whom are actually in their 20's) have to stand on the side line and let the nostalgia and consumerism orgy precede.
That's all happening between now and Sunday...
get some sleep these quiet few days...we're about to take the plunge!
Skygreen Leopards + Outrageous Cherry + The Decks - tomorrow night (Aug 11) at Small's in Hamtramck!
