Updated Repost: Michigan Musicians!

*Please contact Canada's Myspace Page to let them know if this works for you (or with any questions/ideas etc)

Looking at Thursday February 22nd?....What time could everyone meet up at the West Park Band Shell (or another location, if you have one in mind)? Can you take lunch breaks if need be?

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
Frontier Ruckus
Virgil Walters
Scott Sellwood (of SLGTM and Drunken Barn Dance)
Fred Thomas
El Boxeo
The Hard Lessons
Brandon Wiard and the Saviors
The Novel Citizen

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.


So we have this idea for a publicity photograph, sort of like the Harlem Jazz picture from 58 (attached at bottom--this is the photo I was talking about), 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!

I'm guessing they are trying to do this then because Fred's gonna be back in town, but it's gonna be hard to get folks from beyond Ann Arbor to make it midday on a weekday I'm guessing! Maybe they could do it at night at Arbor Vitae or some other large indoor space? Or get sweet floodlights or lanterns?

Sweet Ride Caddy is from my town, but doesn't have a car. As soon as I find out how she is teleporting to Ann Arbor, I will grab onto her shoe and hitch a ride.
