Now let's talk about this Friday. It feels like summer -fest season already. You have five stellar shows to choose from, and that's just the first day of the weekend! Your choices:
Talk about a Ferndale show! You know the Hard Lessons are going to rock your face off. What you might not know is that FAWN will whip you up into a pop stupor and The Octopus will kick your ass with some straight up rock, and forget the feminine touch, because front woman Masha Marjieh isn't playing that game.
The Majestic Cafe - Amateur Anthropologist • Danny Kroha • The Hounds Below
The Hounds Below return to Detroit! In the Cafe, it's going to blow you away. Seriously, see this band, and get there early, because that joint is small and it's going to be crowded.
The Painted Lady - Johnny Lzr Benefit Show: Kommie Kilpatrick • Johnny Ill Band • Disco Assault • The Beefcaves
Punks helping people? You got it. This show benefits the synth player from Human Eye, who had a fire this past winter. Help him out and enjoy some sweet music.

First, a few words about each.
On Wednesday, I went to see Leopold and His Fiction. I was super impressed! Their song "Golden Friends" is amazing and moody and sounds just as good live as it does here. Each of their three members has wonderful stage presence, so their show was engaging to watch as well as hear.
I bailed before Black Lodge took the stage...so I'll have to catch them soon.
Saturday I went to see a show at the Elbow Room, which is famous for birthday shows for people. This one featured Chris Bathgate, Greg McIntosh, Tim Monger and Drunken Barn Dance. It felt like everyone's birthday!

Also, this Saturday, at the Elbow Room, Drunken Barn Dance is back in town! Let's carpool!
It's full disclosure time, folks. I've got a second job. I'm working part time at Green Light Go Publicity right here in Ferndale. It's music publicity. I don't doubt that I'm going to be exposed to a LOT more bands, which is good for everyone, right? Rest assured that this space will still be dedicated to (mostly) local music, shows I go to, and most importantly, the library and the community of Ferndale. You'll still see the things here that you always have, so don't worry!
