Here's one for you...next week do not miss show with Jeecy and the Jungle, FUR, EFB and The Rose Cult - Smalls Hamtramck 5/31
It’s getting close to Movement time and I’m getting super excited just thinking about it. In a couple more days Detroit will be inundated (not that we aren't already) with electronic music fans, artists, DJ, dancers etc. I’ll be there for some of all 3 days taking photos, talking to artists and hanging out. You might even catch me moving around a little doing something that might be called dancing (that’s a stretch when you consider it’s me.) Movement will have 5 stages this year, each with their own flavor and atmosphere. I’ll be sampling a little bit of each stage. Here’s a short list of the artists I’m making sure I catch:
2pm Underground – Nina Kravitz
3:30pm Red Bull – Shigeto
6:30pm Electric Forest – SuperVision
8:30pm Red Bull – Dave Clarke
10:30pm Beatport Stage – Moby
2pm Electric Forest – K@dog
4pm Beatport – Soul Clap
5:30 Red Bull – Adult.
9PM Electric Forest – The M Machine
10:45 Red Bull – Squarepusher
3pm Electric Forest -- Deastro
4:30pm Red Bull – TOKiMONSTA
7pm Electric Forest – Break Science
I was blown away by Kobra and the Lotus. They lived up to the standard set by their cd. This is a band to watch.
I got a copy of their cd a couple of weeks before the show. Inspired from the heyday of NWOBHM, I was taken back to when I first got into metal. So, the cd set a high standard that seemed hard to live up too. Kobra and the Lotus took it to another level. Kobra Paige's voice is more than strong enough to hit the high notes and sustain the low growls. The band has the chops to play.
Kobra Paige's first concert, Judas Priest, is what inspired her to pursue her path into music and metal. Taking her cues from the heyday of metal and adding her mark, you will be taken on a heavy metal journey. Songs of fighting inner demons will be your guide. The band has the same inspiration which results in a tight knit heavy metal for a new generation.

FUN was the feeling of the night. It had infected everyone. The crowd was giddy with anticipation.
The band had fun too. Smiling the whole night. Bouncing around and dancing, smiling the whole night.
The crowd was mixed. There were people that were fans from before to kids waiting to see them from the first time. I even seen a family with their kids. It was a long night for the little ones, they went to sleep. Very cute.
I was a radio fan of the Breeders, but after this show, I'm more than a radio fan. I will be getting some of their music. I had a fun evening with The Breeders. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a semi regular tour. I know I and the crowd would be happy to see the Breeders every so often.
Enjoy the photos.
FREE VINYL / GREAT SHOW: Restorations with The Menzingers, Fake Problems and Captain We're Sinking - Smalls Bar Hamtramck - Thursday 5/30
So many venues, promoters and both local and out-of-town talent have kicked it up a notch this year with parties literally happening everywhere at every time. Here are some of the highlights of what will be going on around Movement this year.
MuzzY is Detroit-Based Producer/Musician Dan Hacker. Thrust onto the scene at a young age, Dan found solace in the old school. Stylistically blending Motown and Jazz samples with modern hip-hop drum breaks, his music can best be described as "Soul-Hop". He combines a wide variety of influences from Stevie Wonder, to Led Zeppelin, to J Dilla with his own live Guitar playing; which together makes for an interesting recipe set to tantalize your ear drums. You can catch MuzzY bringing back the funk around Michigan and the Midwest, and also with the likes of GRiZ and Tone Poets (Live Jam Band with Freddy Todd, ill.so.naj, and Unc).
