    Haha, it was a hamburger! And it was a poor choice on my part. The watermelon was really good though. I think there were grapes, too? I just remember trying to hold my beer, my plate, and my watermelon and ending up with beer everywhere.

    I spilled 3 drinks on myself within like an hour span on Sunday. DEMF preparations are in full force.

    Oh right it was a hamburger. At one point you mused, to no one in particular and certainly not me, "Why am I eating this? What IS this?"

We just hanged out with the artists, helped set up and ate grilled cheese by Mrs. Hawtin. Also talked 'Nam with a few gents who were getting morning drinks before the gaggle showed up. I don't think we were charged. lol then I fell asleep for an hour in the backyard and people were using me as a human keychain- woke up with a billion lanyards around my neck. Went up to the decks and found all the owners except one. I still have that lanyard.

    if its the Detroit experience you're eyeing on this trip and don't have a particular care for Danny T, go to KMS 25. Too much history.

    Yea, I mean, Danny Tenaglia would be fun, but I know myself well enough to know that I'd lose interest before his set is over and would want to be off that boat.

    I'm deluding myself about how many parties I will visit though. Shit Show & KMS are currently my priorities. But I've gotten tickets for Shit Show, KMS, Rare Form, & Droid. Will probably skip Droid completely, might go to Rare Form for a little while early. I've decided not to sweat it. They were cheap tickets, so if I miss two shows I paid < $20 for, that's fine. NO tickets purchased for Friday, Saturday or Monday yet. :P

    PS, I thought the DEMF Sunday night was a cluster fuck until I looked at every fucking night of Off Sonar. I am getting pretty good about actually making it to several parties per night though....

    KMS could be the best fucking thing ever, or it could just be good... I'm willing to sacrifice $20 to the techno gods to make sure I have a place there in case it's unmissable.

    Found last year's Need I Say More poster, it was definitely 7AM, and $10. (As I posted before I edited my post). Interesting that they are starting a bit later this year. I wonder if that means I will sleep for a couple of hours on Monday......

    Alright guys I've been following this thread for a while now, big thanks for all the info.

    Question of the day is- Saturday Afterparties: Dirtybird vs. Moodymann Soulskate vs. CircoLoco (which is sure to be killer!) Out of experience which one of these is can't miss? Does any one venue make or break the party?

    Thanks everyone, really lookin' forward to DETROIT!

    Locals have said good things about TV Lounge where Circo Loco is being held. And Ellen Allien is headlining, so that's kind of a big deal. Apparently the Dirtybird parties are supposed to be a blast too. I suspect Soulskate is going to be more locals and way less party-circuit types if only because it's a ways out of downtown, if that makes a difference.

    My two goals for Sat. night:
    -Check out the Down & Out Party for a while. Hopefully Troy & Magda.
    -See Ellen Allien at all costs.

    **Oh damn. I just realized that if Ellen is going to play Circo Loco it's nearly guaranteed that a few more Bpitch Control peeps are, too. That going to be a really good party. Hmmm.

    Personally, based on last year, Circoloco is a can't miss. It is garunteed to be a good party regardless of line-up (which will likely be good). It will be packed, sweaty and hot as hell in the main room with muisic on the patio and upstairs. It will be one of my Sat night options no matter what as it continues into the morning/afternoon with a patio party (it is easy to end your night/morning there). My second party for earlier that night will likely be Beretta.

    Very cool to hear out of towners excited to come to my hometown to party with the techno music! Found this board while googling something about the festival. If you guys need a local perspective let me know! Although you all seem like seasoned vets.

    I have to work around the weekend. My plans are:

    Work Saturday but then going to CLR the whole night! Not going to miss that thing for the world! Tommy four seven is who I REALLLY want to see. If he is on 'early' then I may go somewhere else like the Beretta Party.
    Sunday: Shit Show, Festival, then No Way Back Party
    Monday: Not sure.

    I wish I could be in five different places on saturday! Soulskate will have many locals. There are a contingent of Detroiters who still take roller skating very seriously and with moodyman on board it sure beats skating around to bel biv divo. You could start out there and come back downtown for Dirtybird which will go late and is in a old,big goth club below a dumpy hotel/apartment building. So you could do both. Not too sure about CircoLoco because there is not much else on it but TV bar is one of my favorite places to see any event lately.

    I LOVED Circo Loco last year, that's the main reason I have not jumped on tickets for any other parties that night. But I've also heard good things about I Love You But I've Chosen Techno. I'm waiting to see what those lineups look like before making a decision. The only bad thing I can say about TV Lounge was that it was really, uncomfortably packed last year... there were many times when I tried to go into the main room and just couldn't deal with how hot and how crowded it was. Fortunately the upstairs had great music, and the patio was quite nice.

    My schedule is probably going something like this:
    Friday: Bang Tech 12
    Saturday: festival -> Circo Loco or I've Chosen Techno
    Sunday: Shit Show -> festival -> Rare Forms -> KMS 25 (or vice versa)
    Monday: Old Miami -> Festival -> ?

    Soulskate sounds fun but it's so far from downtown that I doubt many non-locals will make the effort.

    Really happy to see travelers and locals alike stumble upon our little obsessive thread! I'm sure to have questions concerning Detroit.



    As for D&O: I've not heard really ecstatic reports about the shows. One report coming from Chicago, the other, Germany (somewhere). The people said the atmosphere was nice and all but that Magda was just meh central. Who knows. I'll be travelling a lot saturday night. Just going to go to every party there is. Fuck it.

    I might join you for some of that. Shit Show has me re-thinking my Saturday night strategy a bit. Still going out but might come back to the hotel for a while after the festival.
