    I hobbled around the streets of Detroit with a crutch I found on the street instead of going to KMS.

    You have your ways of enjoying the festival weekend.

    We have our ways.

    I can't imagine missing KMS though. I wished I'd gotten there earlier.

    I don't officially endorse raving with crutches.

    But I do officially endorse raving with orange slices.

    I kind of do too. But I REALLY needed that time to normalize a little, so thank you for sticking around. Besides, if we would have went as hard as we did at KMS for a couple of extra hours, Old Miami very well might not have happened. I couldn't believe I had 3 hours of hardcore raging in me that night.

    Oh, no worries! The calm helped me too. I still can't believe we lasted for 30+ hours.

I'm glad I didn't try to go - had gotten a few texts saying it was impossible, so we just waited and went to KMS instead.

    It seems to happen with at least one event every year. Nice that they are trying to do something to make up for it.
    I believe Alison said that they had taken all their top acts like Maceo Plex, Damian Lazarus, etc. and put them on the patio in the back and the only way you could get out there was if you were VIP which was news nobody found out about until you got to the door. And then they wanted some absurd amount of money for VIP like $60 or $100 or something.

    Yea, that's what I heard from others as well. IIRC, it was the roof/patio? Maybe not. (It was in the same venue as Shit Show - I'm pretty sure the area people couldn't get to was the patio, since you can only get there by passing through the other rooms). The capacity for the upstairs room is very small, so I'm guessing that they were concerned about how packed that room would get with people trying to make their way to the patio. (I have heard from a few people that the patio wasn't very crowded). That's only second hand info though.

    Definitely a poor choice of venue for a lineup with that much broad appeal.

    I am blaming Magda. :P Remember before the fest I was saying I would not buy tickets to after parties where Magda was playing because they would end up being oversold and you wouldn't get? Well, there you have it. Magda.

    (I'm .. kind of ...kidding).

    I have to admit that coming home at 7 in the morning to see everyone sleeping and Law and Order SVU on the TV was very comforting. I was happy to see that I would not have to turn the TV on and wake someone up, and, I couldn't imagine a better show to have on.

    I only caught half of an episode on the very last morning after taking a break from an intense DJ Xanax ambient chill wave set and I giggled with delight.

    I though you left us to join the detroit christian raver scene.

    The Detroit Christian techno scene is nothing to sneer at. I'm going back for some in August.

    I'm adding a new place to the list of places where I enjoy techno the most.

    1. Deserts
    2. Airplane hangers
    3. Warehouses

    and now....

    4. The Bunker

    I've never seen anything like that. Me and Daniel went down there during Carlo Lio and it blew me away literally. I'm assuming it's the acoustics of a concrete floor, concrete walls, and concrete ceiling but when that bass hits and it pushes the air all around you? It just feels so good. I loved it.

    Dopplereffekt was the only full set I caught down there - def. the shit. I was SUPER excited to see Juan Atkins there but sadly he was having a ton of trouble with his records/hardware/something and the copious (2-3 per song) blips inspired an early exit. It totally threw off the groove. Dude stepped back from the decks a few times with hands up in frustration. Not sure what the issue was, but that was the only bummer of the weekend.

We got there just before 7AM, had to wait about 15-20 minutes, it was fairly empty at first but who cares? I didn't mind having the roof mostly to myself and my friends for Daniel Bell's set. It filled up a lot after an hour or two. I actually really appreciated their scheduling, since I could do that party from around 7AM-1PM and still see everything I wanted at the fest. When the lineup was originally posted, I'd assumed I would have to miss a bunch of the fest to see Bell, so it was a pleasure to see he asked to play at 7AM

    Please see the first paragraph of my post.... I saw the schedule too and was like shit, I have something to do Sunday morning and already bought a pre-sale....Their scheduling was pretty good otherwise. It's just that my scheduling doesn't work out. So I'll take the blame. One of these years I am clearing my schedule and doing this festival and it's numerous parties some justice!

    I understand, my family lives in Detroit, so I had to sacrifice part of the weekend to Family Time. (And the last 2 years, they've only gone 1 day since they have work, family stuff, kid's stuff to do). Definitely clear your schedule if you can! I know it's hard to think about taking vacation time and whatnot to do something in your own city, but it's worth it. I've convinced my sibs to do Fri-Sun next year, they can still have family stuff on Monday and get lots of parties in through the other days.

    I only saw one set (Dopplereffekt) at the underground stage this year! Kind of a failure on my part. And god, I wanted to dance for that set, but I was having an... interesting time, and the first time I tried to go down there, I felt like I was being shoved into a dungeon. 30 minutes later, it was fine but, alas, too smokey for me able to be able to dance long through the cigarette smoke.

    Dopplereffekt was the perfect afterparty for Radioheads show last night. Mathew Johnson should be pretty great tonight as well. I happen to miss both their sets in Detroit so I'm grateful i have a chance to catch them out here.
