A Message to: All Michigan Musicians

The following is a repost from Canada's myspace page

So we have this idea for a publicity photograph, sort of like the Harlem Jazz picture from 58 (attached below), we'd like to get as many Michigan musicians in one picture as possible, kind of like what Sub Sprawl did, only with even more people.



Date and location as yet unknown. Let us know if you are interested in being a part of this! We are so lucky and proud to be a part of such an amazing music scene in such a wonderful part of the world. Join us to document this moment in time!

We were thinking maybe the West Park Band Shell?

Confirmed for this so far:

Great Lakes Myth Society
Chris Bathgate
That's Him! That's The Guy!
Tom (War Between The States)
Sh! The Octopus
Sweet Ride Caddy
Dave Lawson (Pop Project?)
Zach Curd (Pop Project?)
Zoos of Berlin
The Dardenelles
Mike Vasas
Sarah Gardiner (photographer)
Child Bite
MC Trashpedal
James Collin
Windmill Music
Annie Moss + Erik Adams
Bobby Pennock
Matt Jones
Carol Catherine
Zach Norton (w/ El Boxeo gang we hope)
Timothy Monger (of course)
Gregory McIntosh (of course)
Annie Palmer
Misty Lyn

Misty Lyn had the incredible idea of using multiple photographers for this, as there are so many talented camera wielders in the area, each with their own style....So....if you're a photographer and would like to take a picture of this for everyone, let us know and we'll add you to the list. (Thank you Misty Lyn).

We realize this is a huge undertaking, and that we're sort of ripping off Sub Sprawl (bless their hearts), but if we can pull it off it'd be a lovely thing to look back on in 40 years for everyone involved. We emailed every band/musician in the Metro Detroit area we could think of, but please feel free to ask around/bring anyone you want with you to this event.

This would be very cool to see. I wish I could join. I think a few names were missing though...

Mason Proper?
G.I. Crowd? Matthew Dear/Audion?
Jib Kidder?
Rescue?
Grass Canyon?
Frontier Rukus?
Onett?
NOMO?

I would be honored to attend. I'd probably go to snap a pic for personal keeps. I would love to bring my band, but we 're not from Ann Arbor and I don't think anynone has heard of us. ;(

BTW, I like this blog a lot. I'm going to start reading it regularly. Thanks for adding me on myspace.

Thanks,
