Thursday night in delightful Hamtramk, MI, don't miss your chance to witness the meeting of the minds of the Detroit-area's most prolific heads of the last ten years. The spot is the Holbrook Cafe, and local cretin/genius Timmy Vulgar will be performing a bombastic solo set, which should hopefully include 'When the Bottle Breaks" among other blurry-eyed hits from other solar systems. More of a down-tempo affair, yet still psychotic and visceral enough to allow Mr. Vulgar access to the deepest parts of your brain with his androidal hymns of paradise lost in the mire of an eternal haze. Don't miss it! The Chrome Spiders are the new band fronted by Michigan's most beloved T. Jackson Potter, better known as Tom Potter from the Dirtbombs, Bantam Rooster, Detroit City Council, and the Seger Liberation Army. Although he's been under the radar for the last couple of years, his energetic presence in Midwest music is sorely lacking and just the thought of a new band from Tom gets everyone in a good mood. Recruiting a couple members of The Bitters and The Menthols, Chrome Spiders are surely set to blow up right on this cold and weary Thursday night. Keeping up with the theme of Michigan's finest cream, along comes the new band composed of Smashin' Transistors' Dale Merill, and Nick and Joe from 90s Crypt scumlords, the Dirtys, elegantly called The Moonlight. Not really along the same lines as Dale's previous band, the Bad Deals, or even slightly comparable to the sound of the Dirtys, but more of a sloppy, down-tempo, countryish lo-fi vibe that incorporates awesome layered vocal effects that don't fall too far from the slurred and blurred delivery of the Black Lips or even Times New Viking. With only a few live shows under their belt, we can only hope the Moonlight hold it together and get the gumption to make a few out-of-state appearances in the near future. Great stuff that's obviously been festering in the Port Huron underworld for far too long, check out some songs HERE, and don't be late to the Holbrook Cafe to catch Cuckhold open the show, and blow your chance to see a rare aligning of the Michigan superpowers do what they do best.
