Sooooo Friday (tomorrow)...

This is just in, but a shitload of Cartridge Family side projects are playing Gone Wired Cafe starting at 9pm (still in time to go to the LaSalle cd release at Mac's)...a bit of a showcase even...
This may include, but not limited to, Cavalcade (?), The Kid's Got Guts (?), and the one for sure is the crust punk (haha, yeah SERIOUSLY), band that me, Horky, Ozzie and Joey just started, Smashing Blumpkins. I don't know if that will ever play again. I can't guarantee any of this will be good, but it will definitely be entertaining.
Gone Wired Cafe
2021 E. Michigan Ave
9 PM, Friday (tomorrow)
Smashing Blumpkins + Family showcase?

Then Sunday (Devil's Night) of course there will be some lives to save:

Soooooo...

Another all-ages show at the Bermuda Rectangle tomary (11/5) starting at 8pm-ish.

117 S. Homer St.
Lansing, MI 48912
(517) 333-6638 with questions.

--Gogglesphere (the best drummer in the free world is the reason you want to check out this band...even if you don't play drums, he'll make you want to quit music)

--Red Swan (Lansing kings of old-timey stories told over swampy old-school Touch & Go type music)

--Funender (maybe Lansing's most underrated band...in this dude's opinion, at least...angular punk w/ more insane fretwork than anyone else I've seen lately -- touring or local)

--t.b.a. (meaning if you bring out some people and come w/ instruments and band, this could be you)

Also, Lansingscene.com is back in effect...check out the haps on future Bermuda Rectangle all-ages fare as well as links to the websites of upcoming acts.
