 MB Welcomes Dia Del Los Dangerous

Dia del los DangerousWhen I first cued up the MySpace page of Día de los Dangerous (literally translated as Day Of The Dangerous), my teenage daughter quipped, "What's up with the screamo, dad?"   It occurred to me then that I had inadvertently stepped in a post-hardcore age when I wasn't looking.  Wikipedia lists no less than 19 sub-genres of hardcore & metal - and that doesn't even include the post-punk hardcore sub-genres like screamo.  It all gets very confusing and there's no way to keep up with it when every band wants to call themselves "original" .  So let it be sufficient to say that Dia del los Dangerous is a hyper-agressive metal band that screams the verses - but sings the chorus (listen to "Canadians Bleed Maple Syrup" on their MySpace page).   But for our purposes, they're our latest band link in newly renamed Original Artists / All Things Hardcore & Metal.

 A Polka and Pop Pontiac Christmas” with the Polish Muslims

Polish Muslims @ Crofoot Dec 20 2008With the Holiday season upon us, children's thoughts turn to sugarplums, xbox 360s, and...the polka! Yes, it's that time of year again, and this season it's metro Detroit's favorite polka rock parodists, The Polish Muslims @ The Crofoot Ballroom, (1 S. Saginaw Street, Pontiac, Ph: 248-858-9333) on Saturday, December 20. As has been the tradition their last few Christmas season shows, their very special guests will be blue-eyed soulster Stewart Francke.  Opening the show will be the Kielbasa Kings, an anything but traditional polka band, whose polka version of the Violent Femmes "Blisters in the Sun" has made them local favorites.

 313 Jac Closes

Sorry, this is a bit late but....


313 Jac ClosesNovember 11, 2008 - After 12 years, the downtown rock n’ roll club 313.jac located upstairs at Jacoby’s is being shut down by the owners of the establishment. Promoters Stirling and Sue Static were asked to cease bookings there and the last weekend of shows is this coming weekend. According to what the owners told them they have no new plans for the upstairs but are moving away from the rock n’ roll community to a more gentrified  bar/restaurant atmosphere.
 
“We would like to thank the Detroit rock n’ roll music community, the bands and music fans that have supported us there for the past twelve years. Thank you for a most memorable run and we’ll see you soon, you can count on it.”
 
The team of Stirling and Sue Static will venture forward to a new location in the coming new year, so stay tuned. They vow to continue their support of the rock n’ roll scene in Detroit for years to come.

 Charlene Kaye: Things I Will Need In The Past

Charlene KayeCharlene Kaye is a classically trained pianist turned pop songwriter who attends the University of Michigan and splits her time between Ann Arbor, Phoenix and Honolulu (ed: must be tough, eh?).  But even though she sometimes weilds an electric guitar instead of a Steinway, she was keen to incorporate classical instruments into her songwriting which often features violin, cello, double-bass and piano. But they're just as likely to include a dobro, a Wurlitzer organ, banjo or even castanets - making her style just as eclectic as her orchestration and difficult to categorize.  But she admits she sounds like "every one I've ever loved", including homeboy Sufjan Stevens, Joni Mitchell, Rufus Wainwright and even prog rock and chamber music. This past October Charlene Kaye released her debut recording, Things I Will Need In The Past
