I remember the first time I saw Deastro, as the warmup for Manna &Quail a couple years ago. Back then it was just Randolph Chabot his synths and drum kit. He had so much energy, I was blown away. I kept seeing Deastro after, even putting him on my own showcase of bands. The more I saw Deastro, the more I got to know Randolph, full of integrity and fierce ambition. A kid that at this point in life deserves to a have a big ego and flaunt his accomplishments, instead, Randolph just pushes harder, deflating his ego by moving his band to the front and working harder with show after show. Deastro's got a new album out, Moondagger, that displays Randolph's growth as a singer and how he's worked his band into his compositions. Check out this video with Randloph as we sat down on a fantastic June night where Deastro played at the Crofoot in front of over 1,000 of their friends and family.

I've went to a few shows lately and my flip camera has been tagging along. That annoying guy with the small camera he keeps holding in your way - that's me, sorry! But, you reap the benefits. I'm getting the vidcasts down to a "relative" science between mixing in audio, some comments and video. This week's video features 2 of my favorite Detroit bands, Champions of Breakfast and Otto Vector, that just happened to be playing on the same night. Val and Moses from CoB share stories about their touring. Then, Ginseng and Renee from OV tell me about what OV is up to (sort of). The video is 8 minutes and should keep you amused until next week when I have a superduper Deastro video coming!

Each and every Friday, Phonotropic beings the freshest and most exciting bands on the local (and sometimes national scene) to Pontiac's Vernors Room located in the Crofoot. Phreddy, the crazy bearded guy, runs the event and makes  sure there is always fun to be had. But, occasionally he hands over the wheel to people like me that can add a little something else to the charged atmosphere.
Sooooo, on Friday, June 26th I bring a night of Post Indie Sexy Synth Electro Dance! Or, as I like to refer to it "PISSED" music. I will be DJing along with my friend and DJ extraordinaire J. Celestino.
Best of all, Stereoluxxx, an indie-electro-funk duo will be playing Pontiac for the first time. Stereoluxxx is the band that has been called Pet Shop Boys meets TV on the Radio. Or, the band that does the 303 stuff Kayne is even envious of!  Come out and join us for a night of dancing, fun, excitement, and as always, suckers! Also, be sure to get P.I.S.S.E.D.

I think this episode might just be my limit on how far I can push using my cheap (but awesome) flip camera and my even cheaper video production software. On this MPAD Video episode I'm featuring Marc Bianchi the voice and intellect behind Her Space Holiday. Marc was kind enough to sit down with me and let me video record the interview as well as the live clips which are from the HSH Pike Room show in May 25th, 2009. If you haven't checked out HSH's latest album, "X0X0 Panda, the New Kid Revival" you should give it a listen.

There was a time when Mikel O.D. was also known as Mikel O.C., as in the O.C. TV show. You see, I love my teen dramas. Always have. Every since the old 90210 days when Brenda and Kelly tossed Dylan back and forth like a tennis ball. Meanwhile, Dylan just kept his smug smirk, and poor old David never got interesting until he started taking drugs. The love for the teen drama has never left me, but it has gotten harder these days to enjoy them like I use too. I suffered through this year’s revamp of 90210, mostly out of a morbid fascination to witness just how bad this shabby also-ran could be.

My worst experience with teen drama was when I tried to watch Gossip Girl. This teen show was so purely aimed against my over 35 male demographic, there was no way I could hang with the catchy lingo, the high fashion and the oh so cold New York demeanor. I’ll stick with my sun in the fun 90210 and the forced intellectual chatter of Dawson’s Creek.

But, something good did come of Gossip Girl and I picked it up for a $1.50 at a library sale a few days ago. OMFGG No. 1, which I looked at thinking this must stand for “Oh My Freaking Great God!” actually stood for the “Original Music Featured on Gossip Girl.” This is a pretty brilliant soundtrack featuring artists like The Kills, The Teenagers, Crystal Castles etc. So it sounds like last year’s hipper than thou mixtape.

I was told by a friend of mine that Gossip Girl has hit its stride this past season and I should give it another chance. I’m not sure I will, but I will be listening to OMFGG!

The reason why I attend the Crofoot more than any other live venue is they understand not only how to put on a show, but, how to make it special. They proved this again on Friday night, June 5th with Mr. Sandman’s Quadruple Album Release Prom, featuring The Summer Pledge, Manna And Quail, The Silent Years and Deastro. If you’re asking if Mr. Sandman is the next new promoter, the answer is no. Mr. Sandman, doesn’t exist. It’s just the fine people behind the Crofoot, doing their own thing to create a magical atmosphere full of fun and mischief.


I got to the show a bit late, which was really a shame because, The Summer Pledge were on stage making a beautiful racket, with loads of percussion, horns, and wailing guitars. Comprised of members from Wildcatting, the Summer Pledge, play some harsh indie rock with a dash of Americana and explosions. It was a big, awesome sound that left the crowd’s ear’s ringing and their face’s smiling.

PromGirlsBefore I get on more with the how the bands were, I have to comment on how gorgeous the people were. See the crowd actually got it! I don’t know how many shows I go to where the promoter will tell everyone to wear red - which I show up in head to toe, only to find everyone else in anything but red. The flyer for this show had “prom” in the title and people dressed like it was the prom they really wanted to attend. With all the ladies in fantastic dresses, and the guys, well, you know, at least the ladies looked good. There was a booth to get your picture taken at, punch bowls and cookies on the bar and an “embarrassing moments” at your prom slide show.

 

Manna and Quail have been hard at work re-crafting their sound for a new ep which packed with 7 beauty-laden songs is like a full length with the fat chopped off. Having Dan Zott for special keyboard effects and vocal harmonies was a welcome back to some of the best M&Q moments, as this was one of their finest performances yet. If you want proof just check out the video, they manage to even sound good on my cheap flip camera.

I’ve used words to describe a live show by The Silent Years as “blissful” and “exhilarating.” They have a way of bringing something to the stage that could be called “spiritual” for people like me, that question if we even have a soul to begin with. For tonight’s show they brought a cast of kids with them that sang, beat on drums and played guitar. They brought in cello to add to their violin and created lighting effects with lamps and Christmas bulbs. The bulk of their set came from their new ep, so absent were the singalongs like “Someone To Keep us Warm” and “Open Up Our Eyes.” But, the new songs sound like winners, maybe next time I’ll be singing along with these as well. Check out their live performance of “On Our Way Home.”

Deastro closed out the night. This show was his chance to bring what he brought to the UK just a couple of months ago to his home crowd. Randy (aka singer/synth of Deastro) is still the same lovable goofball we saw last year, throwing out stuffed animals, wrapping himself in a Batman sheet and pogoing around the stage as if his feet were ablaze. What is markedly different is how complete the Deastro sound has become with his full band that captures the sparkly synths and adds texture to space with a new focus on Randy’s vocal. Deastro may be our hometown kid on his way to making it the big time, but he still has a firm grasp on his identity and appreciation for his upbringing. To be able to witness Deastro up close, I traded in sound quality for capturing the moment. Check out the video of Deastro playing “Girl Talk” –style as the crowd gets up on stage and dances ecstatically around him.

There couldn’t have been a better show to have kicked off summer.
