Midnight Garden: Fairytales of Good and Evil
A Burlesque and Aerial Showcase
Almost 5 years to the date was my last post on MOTORCITYBLOG... my how time fly's by and Life gets in the way! I've been yearning to get back to posting about Detroit events again, so here I am. Funny thing is, my last post was about a new local music group called Josie Pace, featuring Josie on vocals, Ken Roberts on keyboards/synths, and Mark Damian on drums. Pretty ironic since that's exactly who my latest post is about to bring myself back into the MCB fold.
