First Stop Friday; Electric Firebabies and Shithouse Yonder

This month brings us two super-fun bands, albeit in different ways. Shithouse Yonder is fast, loud, fun and punk-inspired. With clashing drums, driving guitars and vocals delivered with a bit of a sneer these guys will have heads bopping. Keep an ear out for "Dukes of Hazzard".
Electric Firebabies is electro-infused soul that will have you dancing before you even realize you've gotten out of your chair. There's definitely a B-52s vibe, with a lot more funk. Some have called it DJ Rock, I just call it a good time.

Join us for another First Stop Friday on June 3rd! Doors at 6:30 PM and we'll have you outta here by 9!

First Stop Friday Recap

Once again, the talent around town astounds me. This past friday, Electric Lion Soundwave Experiment and Robin Goodfellow blew the doors off the library's community room. Electric Lions were loud in every good way and Robin Goodfellow was poppy and so danceable, I though I might realize my dream of a dance party in this joint. To top it all off, everyone in both bands was lovely. There are lots of good people in Detroit bands, and don't let anyone tell you differently.

I've got some pictures for you, but you should know that some snazzy videos should be available later this week. Keith Dalton, a man with lots of great video equipment and a passion for all things Ferndale is starting up a video clearinghouse for Ferndale events. Check it out here:
Keep an eye on the 780s for links to videos of the show!
