A light show will be provided by Overhead Army.

They say, “In case you didn't know, rock 'n' roll is not dead. It's alive and well and wailing hard all across this great nation of ours. The only trouble is, these days you have to go looking for it. You won't hear it on the radio or see it on TV, but it's out there. There really are loud, sweaty, swaggering rock bands laying out the big beat and cranking righteous jams, ranging from blistering metal to fierce but educated indie rock you just need to know where to find 'em.
And from April 10 through 12, they'll be easy to find. How? Just head over to Woodruff's in Ypsilanti, MI for FUZZ FEST, a three-day celebration of cool, high energy rock 'n' roll in all shapes and sizes. 33 bands -- yeah, thirty-three, you read it right -- from the great state of Michigan will be delivering full-on, real-deal rock 'n' roll, with 11 acts on two stages filling the bill to bursting each night.
Michigan has a rich, well-deserved history as the place where a new breed of high-intensity heavy rock emerged in the 1960s, and FUZZ FEST will make it clear to anyone with ears that rock 'n' roll is still one of the Mitten State's most reliable products. Be there and get fuzzed!”
