Films, shows and art exhibitions have made my weeks full of fun this fall. Something is seriously in the air...
Best Coast, Women, Sleigh Bells, Dadfag, the Strange Boys, Thee Oh Sees, Memoryhouse and many others have all been playing awesome and cheap shows all over town. And those are just bands from outside of Michigan! You would think that shows are my job considering how much time I am spending listening to music. But, when are all these bands going to come back again!? Who knows, so I've been going. And so far, the bands I have hung out with who have visited are in love with the city and some are even seriously considering moving here.
Art exhibitions at the MOCAD have brought none other than Mike Kelly and David Byrne to our city as well.
Finally, film exhibitions of our city are being presented this week at the Burton Theater, along with the sweet creative films by the local band ADULT. being shown at the DFT. More info on those exhibitions can be found here:
Also, if you haven't seen this everywhere here is the link for the movie with Johnny Knoxville. This is being shown tonight here in town at the Burton, but can be seen here.
I love this city!
