When: Fri., Sept. 1, 9 p.m.-2 a.m., Sat., Sept. 2 and Sun., Sept. 3 2017
Back in 2004, Human Eye, Clone Defects, and Timmy’s Organism frontman Timmy “Vulgar” Lampinen started a music festival to bring to Detroit the sludgy, psyched-out, noisy punk acts he saw on the road. Lampinen is something of a tastemaker in Detroit’s mind-bending punk scene. Plus the new improved location at Hamtramck’s Ant Hall means plenty of room, so you won’t get an unintentional nose piercing when some dude with bullet studs all over his leather backs into you. Performers will include Detroit punk royalty in the form of Detroit 442, the return of Gold Dollar vets the Buzzards, Human Eye featuring “Hurricane” Williams on drums, Ricky Rat, Texas-based Gary Wrong, the Beauticians, and more.
Doors open at 9 p.m. Friday-Sunday, Sept. 1-3, at the Ant Hall, 2320 Caniff St., Hamtramck. For more information, see Panic in Hamtramck’s Facebook page. Wristbands for the whole weekend are $26, available at Planet Ant’s website, or admission for one night is $10.
