This weekend, Detroit's musical tapestry is preparing for a nuclear explosion of the highest capacity as miscreants, jesters. and future psychedelic proto-type crooners descend upon the city's underground art venues for the annual Scrummage Fest. The festival organizers, Lord Scrummage, whose musical minds represents both ominous and auspicious surrealist qualities, will undoubtedly set the tone for what festival patrons can expect to hear at the Scrummage Fest - An uncontrollable cacophony of mind-altering sine waves and Chinese water-torcher reverberation.... and that's only the beginning.
The festival kick-off begins on Friday, July 9th at Division Street Gallery and ends at the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit on Saturday, July 10th. Must-see performances include Prince Rama of Ayodhya, Bird Names, Slufter, and Deastro. Loads of fantastic art will be provided by Michelle Tanguay, William "Juice" Singer, Bill Meese, and Bill
Powers. The entire list of performers can be retrieved HERE.
