 MBlurbs 9.6.08
Mblurbs 9.6.08Hey bandheads, didn't think you'd ever hear from me again, eh?  What's that? You don't care? Tsk, tsk, you should get so much attention.  Well, I felt the whim to submit some new MBlurbs for your perusal. Oh, feel free to submit your own -  that offer has only been available since 2001 so if you haven't yet contributed, you can take that as a hint.

In this edition of MBlurbs we'll be covering Liz Larin's foray into avante garde with New Music Detroit, Kitty Donohoe's attempt to levitate The Pentagon with her 9/11 music, Nadir's dose of tear gas courtesy of the Republican National Convention, National Ghost's latest attempt to acheive validation at the MME, Chris McCall's extra-musical "Contact" in Ypsi and finally, Radar Pilot's national health care policy - since nobody else seems to have one that works.   Click "read more" below for the 411.  - Mitch

 MB Welcomes Farzad Ajory
While Repugnicon presidential candidate John McCain sings "bomb, bomb, bomb......bomb, bomb, IRAN" to salivating American defense contractors and fear-mongered voters who still see Islamic terrorists around every corner,  I thought we'd take the high road here and introduce you to an actual Iranian named Farzad Ajory who shares the American affinity for shredding metal and creating websites only a music geek would love.  According to Farzad's biography, he studied in Tehran under the tutelage of Farhang Mostagh for three years (which apparently means something in Tehran) and developed further on his own until his music was "liberated" by western digital music technology.  Since then he's been recording instrumentals based on improvisation that are expressed in "space rock", prog and metal which you can find on his official website. Farzad may or may not have an actual Michigan music connection, but if we told you we'd have to kill you.  So let it suffice to say that you can find Farzad Ajory in the Original Artists / Instrumentalists category of our Band Links section.

 Send My Brother To School Benefit Show
Rosie writes

Hello.  My name is Rosie.  My brother's name is Bryce.  He is a 4.0 psych student at LCC.  He had planned on transferring to MSU this fall.  He recently received a letter stating he would be unable to transfer to MSU unless he pays for this summer's class.  Now, he normally receives federal student aid and scholarships to pay for his schooling.  The scholarships have never paid for his summer classes.  The Pel Grant has though.  This summer, the school told him there was no money left to pay for his $600 class.  I am hosting a show to help pay for his summer class.  Our family does not have the monetary means to pay for his class.  The show will be at local art gallery/community center Basement 414 on July 27th from 6pm to 12am.  The cost for this show is a $5.00 suggested donation.  Checks are accepted and should be made out to Lansing Community College.  There will be an art raffle, pot luck, and live local music as well as cover music.  Please come out and join in on the fun!
Peace, love, music...

-Rosie

 NXNE 2008: MUSIC FANS UNITE IN CANADA by Sue Static
NXNE review by Sue StaticToronto, CA - For the past fourteen years, the second week of June has seen music industry biz kids; aspiring bands and music fans make their yearly trek to Toronto for the North by Northeast Music & Film Festival and Conference, Canada’s answer to Austin’s venerable South by Southwest.  NXNE  provides a music conference with music showcases, networking parties and an indie film festival which has become a great place to check out new artists and films and also learn something in the process. 
This year's festival was the best one yet and drew a record number of attendees and bands. I’ve been attending the festival since the second year of its existence and it has become an annual destination of mine. The showcases feature indie and veteran bands from across Canada, select cities in the U.S. and from around the globe.
