So...maaaaaybe - this will all blow over...or uh...burn out? Man, I'm sorry - I'm even scoffing at myself at the cheesy fun I'm having over cigarette-puns...
But - whether it will feel cripplingly oppressive (head out on the patio and blow it up at the sky) or refreshingly liberating (hey, I don't have to do my laundry or disconcertingly spray my wardrobe with chemical-y 'febreeze' so I can re-wear my hipster coat out to the coffee-and-bagel-hangover-spot the next morning)... whatever the after effects of the MAY 1ST kick-off of the Michigan Legislature's signed ban on smoking in bars and eateries - it seems the music community is taking it with quite a bit of gravity.
As posted earlier - there is a Magic Stick 'blowout' already planned -
Now, there's a comparably-epic-sized line up rolling through the Belmont - on April 30th - ...and it looks as though it's going to be an all-nighter...either that, or the poster's promising of "super-power-sets" means compacted-4-song sets....(?)
The Beggars (pictured, w/"dancin' shoe")- Citizen Smile - Sey Lui - Electric Fire Babies - Infinate Land of Make Believe - Hot Rails - Jeni Lee and the Great Tribulation - Four Hour Friends - and - Blase Splee.
