 Happy Independence Day Bandheads
Happy Independence Day Michigan Bandheads! Today we celebrate not just our break with Great Britain some 231 years ago, but our independence from all forms of tyranny and oppression, including those imposed on us and all peace-loving people by violent political ideologies and religions. We'll declare our independence from the shortsightedness of the FCC for not insisting on more local programming and local music on the public airwaves. We'll declare our independence from the global economy which continues to export our jobs and drag our standard of living into the toilet. We'll celebrate the independent spirit that is manifest through local independent music. We'll affirm a new dedication to localism, starting with the music performances we attend. With that said, check our calendar for an event near you or, better yet, submit one of your own. - Mitch

 MBlurbs: June 28, 2007
Welcome to the second editon of MBlurbs, in which we glean from your e-mails the local music news of the day. In this edition, singer/songwriter Graham Strachan has been busy making sense of his life without Robb Roy. Classical-Rock keyboardist and local celeb-brother Michael Quatro hired an "Animal" to spice-up his riverboat shows and Muskegon's Four Finger Five have found greener pastures up in the northwest.
Remember, If you want your news included in future editions of MBlurbs, put us on your e-mail list.

 Mitch's Mind: The U.S. vs John Lennon
I just watched the U.S. vs John Lennon on DVD and it made me sad. It made me sad for my country because we're suffering the same kind of nightmare again. It made me sad for the ignorance of our so-called leaders (both past and present), the fear that ignorance produces, and the violence that fear ultimately unleashes on innocent people both at home and abroad. I actually got choked up at one point during this DVD, not because I was sad actually, but because I thought it was really beautiful (can real men use that word?) that John Lennon was able to inspire such noble tendencies in so many people at once with songs lilke "All You Need Is Love","Revolution", "Working Class Hero", "Give Peace A Chance", "Happy Christmas (War Is Over If You Want It) "Gimme Some Truth", "Instant Karma" and on and on.

 Mitch's Mind: Don't Get That Same Tattoo
So I'm stripping the paint of the old front door and I break out the iPod, put it on shuffle, skip a few tracks, then hear "Tattoo" from Chelsea Michigan's South Normal.

Don't get that butterfly / tattoo upon your thigh
I know that other guys / might think your sexy
the same as every girl that has the same tattoo

It's such a great song that's all it takes to get me to listen to the entirety of "Emotion Picture" and "No More Songs About Girls" while I scrape paint.

 Drew 32 To Perform @ Hart Plaza
drew32 writes 15-year old rapper Drew 32 is going to be performing at the Rhythm & Rhymes from the Hart Festival at Hart Plaza in downtown Detroit, on Wednesday, June 27th, 2007 @ 8:00 PM. The Rhythm and Rhymes Fest is the artistic prelude to the Target Fireworks Celebration that will cap the 6-day Detroit International River Days celebration. The Rhythm and Rhymes from the Hart Festival is sponsored by AM 910 Radio Disney - which selected me to perform. Also on stage will be B-Smooth who can be heard on Drew's CD "Awakening" on track 10 ("Twisted"). So check it out by coming to the show at 8:00 or watching it on TV (i'm thinking it's gonna be broadcasted - at least some parts) and just be one of the hundreds of thousands of people there. Lol. Check it out. Click "read more" below for a link to Drew32's MySpace page

 MichiganBands.com Welcomes The Willeys
On behalf of Michiganbands.com, it's my pleasure to welcome The Willeys. According to their submitted link description, The Willeys play 'original music and obscure covers with a Celtic twist that has been descibed as "Folkwave" '- but you can find them here in our Original Artists/Acoustic Rock & Pop category. Formed around the nucleus of Rick & Andy Willey, the band has survived in one incarnation or another for 21 years! Their sometimes Irish alt/county vibe is burnished with enough fiddle, mandolin and bouzouki to inspire an occasional jig. But they're just as likely to break that stride with some easy going pop reminiscent of The Gin Blossoms, such as on the as yet unreleased gem "Collide" which you can find on their MySpace page. Good Solid Stuff. Check it out and report back to us.

 MBlurbs: June 21, 2007
For years I've been receiving an e-mails from dozens of Michigan bands but couldn't possibly post every one (you see, the idea was for YOU to post them -oh well). Most of the e-mails are show promos but every once in a while there's a nugget of news I think you might like to read. I'll keep collecting these tidbits and post them monthly or as I see fit. If you'd like to send your newsletters or tid-bits to me, contact editor@michiganbands.com and put "MBlubs" in the subject field. Our first edition covers Stewart Franke, Nadir, Bump, Stephanie Loveless and Terry Lee Bolton. Click "read more" below.

 Have The Bush Wars Affected Your Music?
Well, it's been four years, over 3500 Americans dead, tens of thousands wounded, millions of Iraqis displaced or otherwise disposed of, hundreds of billions of YOUR tax dollars wasted and there's still no end in sight. The Vulcan's war in Iraq and Afghanistan and the greater War On {{TERROR}} haven't exactly gone as planned (or have they, Dick?) and even die-hard Repulicons (sic) are now showing signs of pre-election war fatigue.
Several national musical acts have stepped up to the plate with their own war songs (Neil Young, Green Day, Dixie Chicks, etc..) but what about right here in southeast Michigan? Have the Bush Wars affected your songwriting? Your shows? Your attitude? Please take our latest poll (located on right column) and please leave a comment (located at bottom of results page) as well. - Mitch
