What a busy night on the Detroit music scene last night. LucyPalooza at the Tangent Gallery... New bands strutting their experimental post-rock styles at the Lager House... Odu Afrobeat! An indie-pop-minded "Orchestra" at the Magic Stick... A free show of new punk-reconstruction-ists over in Ferndale!

There was also another local hip-hop summit / showcase, curated by spark-plugged, sardonic-cut-up emcee Sheefy McFly - via The Air Up There, which, among many rap acts, included Cold Men Young. This video, featuring the quad-rap collective, debuted about a week ago... (Dir. Tony Katai)
In case you missed the interview with Frontier Ruckus in last week's Metro Times - Their 3rd full length, a double-album (on vinyl) titled Eternity of Dimming comes out this-coming Tuesday (1/29).
