This weeks post was supposed to be an interview with Artie Lange, but his folks canceled on us at the very last minute, TWICE. So, left in the lurch, I couldn't think of anything more enjoyable than to hang with MCB for the Rock n Rummage at New Dodge Bar last Saturday.
Rock N Rummage is always choc full of trinkety goodness. The place is strewn with stuff that's lovingly created or embellished by local friends, whether it's brand new or just too cool to be thrown away. Your favorite jacket from the 80's, your parents vinyl collection, a box of grandma's porn...It's all there. Don't be surprised at what might be lurking behind the rack of vintage pleather. The folks that put this together really scour the cellar for anything that could be of interest. To anyone.
Oh, and there are buttons! Buttons galore!
MCB was there with several givaways to awesome shows, I lost count after the first few. To keep the browsing crowd entertained there was a DJ, breakdancing by Hardcore Detroit, a magic show from Scarboni the Great, a peek-a-boo performance from T&A Burlesque and a killer set from They Never Sleep. That Queen Bee is a doll. I will make sure I see this band again, with or without the garage sale going on in the background.
