DALLY IN THE ALLEY CELEBRATES 37 YEARS
WITH ANOTHER YEAR OF MUSIC, ART, FOOD
AND FUN IN THE CASS CORRIDOR

Annual Detroit Festival Features Food, Music, Art, and Vendors
 on Saturday, September 6, 2014

 

Detroit - The Dally in the Alley festival celebrates its 37th anniversary Saturday, September 6, 2014. Held in Detroit’s storied Cass Corridor, the annual event attracts thousands of attendees to the live music, DJs, art, vendors, food, reunions with old friends, and the making new friends, too. The festival-goers, a colorful and diverse cross-section of Detroiters, experience a unique party that has become one of the most-loved festivals in Detroit.

 

Since it began as an inner city art fair in 1977, the Dally has evolved into a culturally significant affair. In 1982, the fair moved a few blocks to the alley between Forest Avenue & Hancock, Third and Second and evolved into a performing arts festival. While in recent years the celebration has expanded in both size and attendance, the Dally in the Alley remains a one-day festival that is not to be missed. Four music stages, a community stage, kids fair, art installations, more than 150 local food and retail vendors provide attendees with activities and entertainment all day long.

 

The festival, a fundraiser for the North Cass Community Union, prides itself in staying true to its core mission of celebrating the area that it takes place in. In 2013 in a poll among MetroMix readers, Dally in the Alley was awarded with the honor of “Best Festival in Detroit”. In 2014 the festival was named “Best Summer Festival in Detroit” by Metro Times staff.

 

Dally Chair Adriel Thornton says “This year’s Dally is expected to be the most well-attended yet. Our team is excited about all of the vendors, the great entertainment and all of the amazing people that come to Dally.”

 
This year's event features several key elements that make it better than ever, including:

 

     Dally In The Alley Installation Project: Continuing the tradition of showcasing cutting edge art, Dally Art Director Andy Durkas has put together an exciting presentation featuring art installations by local artists, including sculpture artist Thomas Pyrzewski. Pyrzewski will be doing a special live build amidst festivalgoers throughout the day. Installations also include community-curated art and will be in various locations throughout the festival.

 

     More local goods than ever before: We’re excited to announce the growing interest from local businesses to bring a wide variety of goods to showcase at Dally in the Alley. Vendors include: Common Threads Clothing, Human Detroit, Slows BBQ, Jacques Tacos, Respect Detroit apparel, among many others. There will be over 160 vendors will be in attendance in 2014, a new record for the festival.

 

     Ann Kennedy Community Stage & Fashion Show: Dedicated to long-time supporters Ann Kennedy and Dylan Bailey, Dally in the Alley’s fifth stage is an eclectic interactive performance space that pays homage to Dally's community roots. It will feature soapbox forums, performances, contests and other activities. A fashion show is also planned for 7pm at the Ann Kennedy community stage; the show will feature runway models and clothing from local retailers that can be found for sale around the festival. For the first time ever Dally and Pop-Up Yoga Detroit will also be hosting Yoga and Crossfit workouts throughout the afternoon.

 

     Continued Focus on Environmental Impact: The North Cass Community Union is working with Recycle Here to make the Dally in the Alley the greenest festival in Detroit. By requiring all food and drink to be served in compostable wares and staffing volunteers to ensure the right waste gets into the right can, Dally has reduced the amount of garbage by over 60 yards. This year, Dally will bring in over 150 new trash receptacles to be placed inside the alleyway to keep the Corridor Cass clean and kept up.

 

     Poster Artist: Ron Zakrin. This year’s poster art comes from redounded Detroit artist, Ron Zakrin. Ron Zakrin has been an ever-present creative force in Detroit since the mid nineties, when he emerged on to the underground electronic music set with paintings that provided a visual counterpart to the Detroit sound that was taking the world by storm. Zakrin lives in Detroit Michigan, where he was born and works daily.

 

 
Dally in the Alley takes place in Detroit's North Cass neighborhood, between Forest and Hancock, Second and Third on Saturday, September 6, 2014 (rain date is Sunday, September 7, 2014). The event runs from 11AM to 11PM.

Midge Ure - Retro Futura Tour 2014 at the Greek Theater



You know deep down somewhere in your soul you have a love, or at least an appreciation for 80's New Wave. Don't try to deny it. Whether you lived through it, were told about it, or had a "phase", you know you like it. It's not disco, so it's not embarrassing to admit. If you enjoy bell bottoms and doing "the hustle" then some of us might laugh at you. Sorry Mom. Anyways, here's a bunch who made that music who've still got it. The Retro Futura Tour 2014 featuring Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey, Howard Jones, Ultravox’s Midge Ure, China Crisis and Katrina of Katrina and the Waves. If you're not fluent in New Wave, I'll quickly walk you through this and introduce who's who. Keep reading...

You've heard these songs at least once, if not, then several hundred times. It's apart of our culture. Katrina of Katrina and the Waves opened the show. The Waves are known for the hit, "Walking on Sunshine." You can't help but wiggle your fanny and conquer the day while this song is playing. You just can't. China Crisis was the second opener and they topped the UK charts in 1983 with "Wishful Thinking". Midge Ure was in Ultravox! and their hit was "Dancing With Tears in my Eyes". Howard Jones' first hit was "New Song". Thompson Twins are known for their unmistakable hit, "Hold Me Now". 





As the third opener, Midge Ure rocked right through his set, and I wish it were longer. "Hymn" was completely amazing! It was hard to shoot and try to watch at the same time. I could have taken another hour of his set, easily. Die hard New Wave fans, mostly the middle agers, were out of their seats, dancing with their friends and family. The lights and lasers during Howard Jones and Tom Bailey were cool and all, but Midge rocked it.

Sneak Peek/Fundraiser
HEAVEN ADORES YOU
(The Elliott Smith Documentary)
Friday, October 3 – Doors 8 pm – Film 9 pm - $7
 
Heaven Adores You is an intimate, meditative inquiry into the life and music of Elliott Smith. In this documentary portrait, we journey through the life of American singer and songwriter Steven Paul “Elliott” Smith, a musician whose rise to prominence in the 1990s and early 2000s was cut short by his untimely death at the age of 34 in 2003.
The film opens in 1998 — a year in which Elliott receives an Oscar nomination for his song “Miss Misery” for the Gus Van Sant film “Good Will Hunting,” and his album “XO” receives mainstream airplay — an interviewer from Dutch TV inquires about his recent declaration that he’d never be a rock star. Elliott thoughtfully replies, “I’m the wrong kind of person to be really big and famous…”
What kind of person was Elliott Smith? Since his death in 2003, many media-makers have attempted to tell the story of his creative “sad-sack” genius, often through the lens of struggle, heartache and addiction. Director Nickolas Rossi employs a different lens, placing music center-stage, creating a framework for Elliott to narrate the story of his life himself, through the filter of recorded conversations and interviews, with support from friends along the way. With great care, Rossi expertly weaves together 30+ interviews to create an intimate and personal history like never seen before.
Beginning in Portland, we’re treated to Rossi’s stunning cinematography with a gorgeous aerial view of the lush landscape. Photographer and friend Autumn de Wilde and official archivist Larry Crane discuss how the Oscar nomination affected Elliott, with Autumn noting, “I wanted more people to hear his music … but it changed a lot of things for him.”
The film moves to a somber day — Elliott’s death on October 21, 2003 — and we see shots of the Elliott Smith Memorial Wall in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA. Music video director Ross Harris discusses his reaction to the news of his friend and collaborator’s death.
Rewind. The year is 1997 and Elliott is in Santa Monica, CA being interviewed by KCRW’s Chris Douridas. Douridas inquires about Elliott’s childhood and is surprised to discover he grew up in Dallas. Smith’s sister Ashley Welch discusses her experiences with Smith when they were children, set against a montage of photographs from their childhoods. Smith’s childhood friend Steve Pickering also shares stories from their school days.
We meet Tony Lash, friend and bandmate, who discusses meeting Elliott at Lincoln High School in downtown Portland. It’s here, in high school, that Lash and Smith began collaborating in music. Post-university, Lash and Smith form the band Heatmiser which becomes a major part of the Portland music scene in the 1990s. Musicians Pete Krebs, Sean Croghan, and others involved with the Portland scene at the time, discuss the era and the subsequent discovery of Smith’s solo work, which was quietly recorded on a 4-track and would become the basis for “Roman Candle.” Slim Moon, from the record label Kill Rock Stars, and Margaret Mittleman, soon to be Smith’s manager, discuss seeing him perform solo, especially significant given the period, which favored loud and often-times political rock; acoustic sets were considered “nerdy” and “uncool.”
We move into 1995 and Ross Harris discusses his experience directing Elliott in the video, “Coming Up Roses,” a single from Elliott’s second self-titled release. It’s a busy period for Smith as he balances duties with his band Heatmiser and his emerging success as a solo artist. Lash and recording engineer Rob Schnapf discuss tensions that surfaced with Heatmiser members as they recorded what would ultimately be their last album together, “Mic City Sons.” Of Smith’s solo career at the time, Sean Croghan notes, it went to “big all of a sudden.”
1997 sees the release of Smith’s third album “either/or” and James Clark, a guitar tech who would work on a future tour, remarks, “if you didn’t know you were standing next to genius, then you just aren’t paying attention.” Larry Crane and Elliott open Jackpot! Recording Studio and we see images of the two of them painting and setting up the space. Crane and Elliott’s former girlfriend Joanna Bolme and collaborator discuss the era.
Elliott moves to Brooklyn, NY. Friends such as Autumn de Wilde discuss having him in New York and the impact it had on them. Elliott’s fourth album is released in 1998, “XO.” Jon Brion and Larry Crane discuss the song “Waltz #1” with Brion noting, “there were a couple of times he full-on freaked me out as a musician.” Friend and publicist Dorien Garry suggests that he was not well during this period, drinking heavily and calling in the middle of the night. Friends discuss their “intervention.” We re-visit Elliott’s Oscar nomination for “Miss Misery.” Bolme, Crane and Smith himself talk about the nomination and subsequent ceremony.
Next we go on the XO tour with Elliott and his crew and are treated to several stories and anecdotes that paint a picture of an Elliott Smith who’s funny and silly – not a common understanding of the man. Elliott moves to Los Angeles post-tour.
Jon Brion, Largo club-owner Mark Flanagan and Elliott’s manager Margaret Mittleman discuss the era candidly and describe it as a “golden period.” His fifth release, “Figure 8” comes out and the world is introduced to the now-infamous Elliott Smith wall at Solutions! in the Silver Lake area of the city by “Son of Sam” video director, Autumn de Wilde. Mittleman, Brion, Flanagan, Garry, Lash and others discuss their experiences with Elliott’s substance abuse and attempted recovery in the time leading up to his death from two stab-wounds to the chest.
The posthumous release, “From a Basement on the Hill,” Elliott’s sixth album completed by Joanna Bolme and Rob Schnapf after his death, is discussed. The documentary wraps with footage from “No Name #1” – a series of benefit shows that took place over four cities in 2013 and was put together by Elliott’s sister Ashley Welsh. The track “Happiness” is featured, sung by both musicians on-stage, and folks in the crowd – it’s a magical moment for all involved.
At the conclusion of Heaven Adores You, we have a rich view of an incredible and accomplished talent, a view that places music at the center of Elliott Smith’s legacy.

Elliott said it best himself, “the less I think about it, the happier I am. I don’t really care where I fit into anything, or if there’s anything to fit into to. It’s just, I like music, you know? That’s the thing. It’s really uncomplicated.”
The Magic Bag is proud to present a sneak peek/fundraising screening of Heaven Adores You on Friday, October 3.

"Stretch Those Bills" at Forman Mills - Clothing retailer helps local youths Dress for Success in 2014! Photos by United Photo Work's Paul Hitz

Happy Monday! 

With Summer coming to a quick close we got word about a great promotion from a local retailer who was helping local families "Stretch Those Bills" so we sent MCB alumni Paul Hitz to check it out

 

 

MORE THAN 100 DETROIT-AREA STUDENTS TO RECEIVE SCHOOL UNIFORM CLOTHING VOUCHERS FROM FORMAN MILLS


 

DETROIT­– With three Detroit-area stores, Forman Mills, a value-based discount department retailer committed to providing consumers in underserved markets with significant discounts on high-profile brand fashions, will be helping more than 100 Detroit-area students dress for success this school year.

This past Thursday, August 21, more than 100 pre-identified youth, who are consumers of Neighborhood Service Organization visited the Forman Mills Warren and Conner store (11950 East Warren Avenue, Detroit) to redeem $15 vouchers to be used on school uniforms.
 




In addition to the pre-selected youth, the first 50 youth, ages 18 and under, on-site who perform the Forman’s Mills “Stretch Those Bills” dance or give a “Forman Mills” shout also will receive one voucher each. 

 
MCB's Paul Hitz was there to catch all the action!

“We wanted to ensure that students in the community have the opportunity to walk into school on the first day feeling confident and ready for a year of learning,” said Rick Forman, president and CEO of Forman Mills. “Being able to take the burden of being able to afford clothes for school off of the students and their families is of great importance to all of us at Forman Mills.”

Neighborhood Service Organization (NSO) is a human services agency serving metropolitan Detroit’s most vulnerable.  The nonprofit runs several programs serving youth including Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngers (HIPPY), Youth Initiatives Project, YouthLink and Life Choices Youth Program.

“We are honored that Forman Mills selected our young consumers as recipients of these generous vouchers,” said NSO President and CEO Sheilah P. Clay.  “It sends a positive message to families that businesses in our community are invested in the future success of children and youth.”
 

 

Offering the latest in fashion for youth, juniors and young men and women, Forman Mills is currently offering numerous deals on back-to-school apparel.  School uniforms are available in a variety of colors with polo shirts ranging from two for $9 for kids to two for $12 for young men, and shoes for $10.  Other fall fashion deals include denim jeans, two for $10; three t-shirts for $5; and boys pants for $6.

Adds Valerie Fiordaliso, Forman Mills’ Marketing Director, “Whether the student is required to wear a uniform or just needs a few new items for the school year, we have what they need.”

In addition to the Warren and Conner location, Forman Mills also can be found in Highland Park at the Model T Plaza, Bel-Air Centre on East Eight Mile Road in Detroit and on Miller Road in Flint.  The company will be opening a fifth Michigan location in Southfield later this year.
