C-POP MAY CLOSE FOR GOOD IN JUNE

My jaw just drop when i read this in the Detroit News Web site just after 4 PM

According to the Detroit News web site
http://www.detnews.com/ The Bad economy in the Detroit area have calm a high profile victim.

The C-POP Art Gallery in midtown Detroit
(image)
the indie art place Next to the Magic Stick complex on the corner of Woodward and Willis near Wayne State may close in June.

According to owner Tom Thewes "staying open just doesn't make sense" blaming slow art sales, the Troubled of doing business in Detroit, and the building landlord's to put the building for sale on the property over a year ago and begin in bad times in the Detroit Metro Area did not help much.

there may be hope by turning the building into a mix used Venue that may incorporate C-POP if all else fail June may see the end of the edged art galley that have been located at it current location since 1998 [it stared in 1995 in Royal Oak].

The Metro Times Hamtramck Bowout 12 - Day Three

2009-03-07T16:04:05.763-05:00

Last Night it was day Three of the Metro Times Hamtramck blowout and last night was a real great night for local music because it was a oh so good day with temp near the mid 60's, it would be a enjoyable night for going up and down around the hamtramck area.There would no considering about bundle up for cold weather, it was just cool to walk to one gig to the Next gig or take the shuttle bus which is well begin run this year including the Night Move Bus which is a difference experience because it a green bus and instead of the crappy music from a radio station there was local music pump in the bus and it was all local.not only that there was some good Vittuam Water on the front of the bus which was good for those of you tried after a full show of taking a rest from all that walking, Oh despise report that was put on the web, No i don't need a Segway thanks you very much, I am fine.The Best part of the blowout is for new place to offer discount for the blowout and the Towbriged House of Coffee offer a discount and add a quite from a popular you tube clip of some hot head cable host to tell everybody "WILL DO IT LIVE".After a few days of teasing to the Blog think he would show up as me[which is not true] i did see former MT and current freelance writer Johnny Loftus show up at the K and C checking out the blowout, and it look like he is doing well.Last night was pretty full all over the place by the 11 PM some of the placed i visit it was near or almost full house when i went to the "Atlas Bar" it was full for four hours Friend, i spend the 1st ten minutes with MT Editor W. Kim Hairon until i found a spot where some of my friends was sitting, that how crowed it was.and one more note some of the bands play much, much early, i was going to see Elle and the fonts they was going to play at 9:40 PM but play at the same time as the blue flowers, and miss Kelly jean clawell because she play early as well not only that Fred Thomas [of SLGTM fame]and Aran Ruth switch time slot so when they say line up subject to change, think it will change at the last mintue.as for the music highlights the K of C roof blow off with the sounds of the dirtbombs which have a great line-up these days with the addition of Zachary Weedon of the readies which make a prefit match for Ko demon fuzz playing guitar, the K of C Main Hall was total full expect for the back which is amazing despite the bad sound.also ripping the blowout was "The Terrible Twos" who punk rock was awesome and blew everybody ears at the blow out.also good was Tone & Niche which there music is good live you always like good band with string in it and they was good.also good and fun was four hours friends it great to see a good band who add country and rock together and not only that the girl in the band [who is the girlfriend of the lead singer] look pretty cool.also Great and cool and also seeing them for the first time since Changing there band name from Ether Aura was "The Blueflowers" which was real cool to see the band, i had to miss them two weeks ago because i when to the back in spades show, but they sound good and at the same time look like a real pretty band may be it the addition of pretty cool base player.Now i arrived at the carbon bar to see "Jason Croff Family Band" they was going to go on at about 12:20 AM, but end it up going on 12:40 AM i did not stick around because i took a shuttle to the Knight of Columbus to catch the dirtbombs to round up the night.Well Tonight is the last night of the blowout and yes the blowout least fave friend "Bad Weather" will arrived, but it will not be cold and snow as in years past but it will be cold and rainy with a little bit of thunder and no it not going to be the NBA Team from OKC.but you stay dry for THE SWAMP SISTERS, FRIENDLY FOES, SATORI CIRCUS, THE DETROIT COBRAS, CARJACK and a lot,lot more and after the [...]

The Metro Times Hamtramck Bowout 12 - Day One

2009-03-05T15:01:57.651-05:00

Well Last Night was the first day of the 12th annuls mega showcase of local music in the city which is called the hamtramck blowout, the turn out was real good with most of it coming with the early start time.

with me i was a little bit later to the show with bus problem [Mostly waiting for the bus], i did arrived at about 8:45 PM and then there was a hic-up getting my press pass, i did get my wristband but the combination of getting there and the waiting for the band led me to my the first band on the night "Electric Fire Babies" i got up to the stick just when there was ending.

I did see a lot of old friends at the blow out last night some who i have not seen in a long time like new WDET Weekend music host Ann Delise, to fame Entertainment attorney Howard Hertz, and alot of friend who i have seen a lot and some people i who know but have not seen in a long i total forget there name, Which in my bad.

There was a lot of of people one friend notice with Video Cameras mostly with for there blog mostly for you tube and mostly for the hell of it, oh yes there was you photo people and in the age of twitter Cell phones texting to there twitter site, that some thing to think of Next year.

Among the music highlights yesterday was you got it "the meatmen" the punk band who know how to crated a following with there lead singer Tesco Vee dress for the show in out fit design by Muffy Karona, the band did entertain and offend at the same time and not only that the music was not that bad but it was true punk rock.

Also i like "The Octopus" feather former member of the "Deadstring Brothers" Masha Marjieh i meet her at the Eagles of Death Metal show a few weeks ago but seeing her on stage i can say man she can sing and still look cool after the show she is my new fave muse at the moment.

Also good last night was the "The Gepetto Files" now i have seen it before years back but this time have hacking band and i was a crazy mix a puppet show with with a live band but i was pulled off.

also good last night was silverghost who sound so great with with a good film backdrop but i heard only five song because i forgot Outrageous Cherry was playing at the same time at the Majestic so i went there and they was OK last night, also great was Child bite, The Wrong Numbers and hip-hop/ R and B act "Fluent" Who was in the Metroitmes blowout cover.

after a long night for me, night two in hamtown is just getting started but it will now be up I-75.

BREAKING CULTURE NEWS - UPDATE

2009-02-09T16:35:05.898-05:00

THE NEW MUSIC SHOW ON WDET
WILL BE ON THE WEEKEND ONLY

here is a update to a story broke last night
on the Detroit news web site and posted on this site last night

it was the story about some sort of music coming back to WDET with
the hire of former WDET-FM DJ Ann Delisi our hope in culture it would be a daily
thing i hate to disappointed you fans

from the Press Released i read she will be on the Weekend only, the show will be called "Ann Delisi's Essential Music." and it will be aired for noon to 4 PM begin February 28th.

the show is what is begin called be GM J. Mikel Ellcessor Ann's new show will be a fun, contemporary and thoroughly hand-picked approach to music that moves Detroit," said Ellcessor. "Ann will guide us through the essential music, both new and familiar, that's shaping our culture and will feature music Made in Detroit every hour

that is the only music show added to the line-up the rest of the change on the weekday line are two new news talk show on that mirror "BBC World have your say" which lasted only a year in 2006 called "On Point" that will aired from 10 AM and a two hours news show called "The Takeaway" which aired for two hour from 8-10 AM meaning "Morning Edition" will aired three hours in stead of four hours.

"Detroit Today" the all local news show will move to a time slot TBA

MY TAKE: after reading the press released you can say i am a little bit disappointed it not a Monday Thu Friday gig, but don't be surprise if this becoming a slow process, hey Ann Delisi is a start for once but how are you going to ask listener to listen to a show on the slowest day of the week which is the weekend.

i think people at DET not getting the message that where all news format with the same news on 20 sourced you hear all day, but have any one seen the rating for the whole all-NPR line-up in the last rating book it a 0.9, and not to get down on the head-up at DET don't forget the weak ecomiced is still a factory.

and one more thing not to knock Ann Delisi, she is a good host who been in the scene for a long time and was really good what she did at WDET.CIDR,and as of late WRCJ and most of us remember her as host of backstage pass one of the best show to air in the 90's, but like i said having her back to do a show on a station so off the beaten path it a start.

Let me know what you think, drop me a line or at my e-mail address on the left side.


And here is the press released from PR Newswire

BREAKING CULTURE NEWS

2009-02-09T02:59:24.201-05:00

SOME MUSIC TO RETURN BACK TO WDET

yes you hear me correct, the above is true according to the Detroit News in there on line edition

the paper is reporting on there web site
[Link here]

that the New G.M. J. Mikel Ellcessor have what the paper is reporting changes in programming that will infuse the station with more Detroit music and attitude and not only that one of at DJ who have sing to be a DJ is Ann Delisi.

yes the same Ann Delisi who did DJ at the station from 1983 to 1995

the details will be mention in a Press release tomorrow,

according to the Detroit News Ellcessor said this -

When more of Detroit's radio is coming out of town, WDET is drilling deeper into the city", "At a time when so much of the world is talking about Detroit, and Detroit is absent from that conversation, the people in the city who are being talked about are like props in a play. It's vital to get their voices back up into that national dialogue."

"There will be music from somebody living and working and making music in Detroit every single hour that she is on the air," Ellcessor said. "That's a promise."

there have been no mention about this on the WDET web site it self as of 2:30 AM

the other changes at the station according to the Detroit News include a new program that will allow nonprofit arts organizations to get their news on the air, and a switch of some of the current NPR content to programs that will allow more live interaction with Detroit listeners.

but Ann Delisi will be the only DJ for now Ellcessor did said it is not turning the clock back on the all music format that was there almost five years ago, the station plans a mix of music and news that he feels is forward-looking and suited to Detroit

and why Ann Delisi well from the press released "Ann has changed and evolved over the years, as we all have," Ellcessor said. "She's coming back to WDET because we're going to create opportunities to both guide people through today's contemporary music and to get more people engaged in the WDET conversation."

To return to a partly music programs could be a help because it you have been reading the blog site in the last three years you know since most of the music program was dump by then GM Michael Coleman a lot of bands and you know a lot of bands have skip detroit Big time

the changes will go into effect Feburday 23 that two weeks away
stay to later in the day on this breaking news story in the culture city
