I know that movie is supposed to come out soon, but I'm pretty sure this isn't like a release party for it. Can't wait for it when it comes out though.

Here's another Blanche show.
Fri 02/04/05 Lansing, MI Temple Club 8 PM $8 for 21+ $12 for 18+

Hmmmm...
Let's see how this works out. I'd like to attend Pas/Cal as well. And that It Came From Detroit thing sounds great too. And Blanche of course, but I've seen them 3 times within the year.

Yeah....I believe it's more of a "WOOHOO!!....we're almost done....lets have a party and rock into the wee hours of the morning!!".....which is always a good reason to have a concert

I'll definitly be at the benefit. the Cyril Lords are a bad ass band for anyone hasnt caught them yet. As for other shows in the D... The Ruiners are playing the stick on friday the 21st. Jawbone will be opening up for them. The Ruiners always put on a hell of a show. Seeing Rick Ruiner light himself on fire all night will be worth admission alone. Anyone catch the Dirtbombs-Paybacks-Avatars gig at the blind pig last saturday. what a blowout that gig was :blink: ....

i don't remember where i heard it, but i thought this show was supposed to be to earn money so they can finish up the film. and the gore gore girls were playing it as a benefit or something. i honestly can't remember where i heard that though.

edit: duh, it is on the it came from detroit website! http://www.itcamefromdetroit.com/

this really has nothing to do with anything...i just wanted to share

ok, so saturday night...my sister and a friend win about $500 at casino Windsor and decide "shit!!....let's party!"...so she calls me and says she's taking me out to dinner

long story short....after dinner (and a few rounds of drinks)....we end up in detroit, but really didn't have a plan...so i think, i could go for some bowling...so there's only one place i'm thinking of

we get to the garden bowl and it's packed.....they shoe guy/ bartender says it could be anywhere from 10 min to 45 min......so, we decide to go upstairs and check out whoever's playing (i didn't already know, so i figured it would be interesting)....anyway, ends up the Stick is "booked" for a private party....*my face :angry: *

anyway...we decide to leave after more drinks, and on the way out the back door, the maintenance guy is locking up the area behind the lanes.....we ask for a tour because who doesn't want to see what the intestines of a bowling alley look like....he said "Sure...come on in!"

He showed us EVERYTHING (how the pins go around in this big circle to the top where they get dropped in this tray thing...and then the ball gets sucked up and shoots back down the lane, and gave us the entire history of bowling alley equipment and manufacturing....it was really quite interesting!!!

we were squating down to look out to the lanes....we could see everyone out at the seats.....so we waved naturally...which was probably rather distracting for those who were about to throw!! lol

after we left we went downtown to wander....we were gonna go for coney's (Lafayette of course......no American bullshit...allthough they probably share a kitchen) but decided that since we spent $70 on food that night, we really were still full. So we went to Foran's for a few jager bombs (oh yeah...they served me ;) )....then we went to Hard Rock for last call.....then we decided to tresspass and went for a little slide at Campus Martius.

so anyway...that was my deeetroit adventure for this week

see y'all next weekend at the "It Came From Detroit" party

for anyone who actually read all that......wow :blink: ...you have stamina

I read it! Detroit adventures are the best kind, by far. We just went down there today for the auto show (snoooore) and drove around a bit, per usual. Went by the old train station. I love looking at that thing.

Aaand I love Lafayette Coney Island! We were going to go out to lunch there today, but ended up stopping at a Denny's instead. Damn majority family votes.

I thought the Ruiners were done? Maybe it was just my man eric that left the band?

Lafayette Coney!!! My last trip downtown to Alvin's began and ended with stops at Lafayette. What a great place, you can get a can of beer there at like any time of the night. Sweet.
