Show preview: Timmy's Organism at UFO Factory tomorrow, Wed., Nov. 25


Tomorrow night, Timmy's Organism plays UFO Factory with the Sugarcoats and Anguish. You’ve heard the Christmas tree story about Timmy Lampinen, haven’t you? Holiday shows from "the hardest working punk in show business" are always apt to be extra-charged. After all, his shows already have the out-of control pageantry of a secret ritual, even on a random Tuesday in May.

And here it is the biggest drinking night of the year — Thanksgiving Eve. Or is that the worst? I don't remember which. Just be sure to enjoy the heck out of this righteous night, and please do not drive and drink, Detroit. Sorry to be serious for a minute, but way too many of my friends in Detroit drive drunk; I hate it.
