Are you meeting up with any boardies, spooks?
Are you meeting up with any boardies, spooks?
I'm kind of bummed I've never checked out City Club before, and I don't think this will be the trip where it happens.
the Movement App has been released!
Sunday and Monday, so many conflicts...any recommendations for "Underground" and "Made in Detroit" stages as far as not to be missed acts?
I'd suggest the Made in Detroit stage for when there's no one you want to see at the other stages. Stand over by the arch or whatever artwork that is for the best people entertainment
^ Word. Thanks for your input. 10 more days!
10 Artists to Check Out at Movement Detroit 2014
Movement Festival: Artist to See & Schedule Announcement
Sunday: Malik Alston and Delano Smith. And Robert Hood is not to be missed.
Monday: The only excuse to miss Adam X on the Underground stage is if you're seeing Eddie Fowlkes on the Made in Detroit Stage. Dantiez Saunderson and Niko Marks to start your afternoon off.
This thread makes me hate myself for not being able to attend Movement again this year
Mark Farina @ It'll Do 4/30 | Tortoise @ Club Dada 5/5 | Hernan Cattaneo @ It'll Do 5/14 | The Cure @ American Airlines Center 5/15 | Four Tet & Ben UFO @ Club Dada 5/17 | Bebel Gilberto @ Kessler Theater 5/18 | Derrick Carter @ It'll Do 5/28 | Victor Calderone @ It'll Do 6/4 | Kraftwerk @ Bomb Factory 9/10
Hoping to hear this track next week!
Sunday: Malik Alston before Troxler sounds great! Dixon -> Delano Smith -> Kode 9 -> Mike Huckaby or Hawtin??? -> Robert Hood
Monday: I saw Adam X play all vinyl set for 6 hours in the Panther Room in March so I think I'll check out Eddie Fowlkes since Kevin Saunderson is playing right after him....how big is "Underground" stage? I don't need to be close for Jeff Mills but I also want to be close enough to feel the bass! He's playing against Carl Cox, Octave One and Boys Noize so I don't think it'll be too difficult to get a good spot right?
Which one is your favorite??? I can't decide between #10 or #12!
The bunker is pretty small, and last year they had a new visual/lighting set up, which (either that or the acts) drew soooo many more people to that stage than I've seen before. The best sound spot there is the little area right before the ramp that takes you down. But if you want to be close, you have to maneuver down the ramps. You'll be able to feel the base pretty much anywhere within the vicinity, though.
I didn't like the bunker because how packed it was and how murky the sound was. I'm typically someone who doesn't get bother by packed crowds but just something about it just made me not want to be there.
It's pretty repulsive until you make your way to the front or side. Most people just stop right in front of the stairs, so it feels worse than it is.
DBX/Dan Bell live
Anthony "Shake" Shakir
Terrence Dixon (who might be retiring from music?)
BMG is very good, saw him opening for VFTL, used to be in Ectomorph with Erika, is now associated with Interdimensional Transmissions with Servito, Souffront, etc.
Sean Deason is pretty standard 90's Detroit techno, which I'm a sucker for, and doesn't seem to play often, so could be worth catching.
Octave One live
The best thing about detroit is that there is no possibility of making a bad choice. My advice, wander the fest, check out everything and anything, hit up a diverse mix of afterparties. If you are going to the pricey afterparties (20$), get your tickets now before they double in price.
Spooks come hang out at 407 johnson on saturday, you will meet a big group of people going to detroit.
Here's my tentative plan:
Friday: Carl Craig @Motorcity Wine->Electric Deluxe @The Works->sleep...
Saturday: reunion brunch->FEST->SLEEP!
Sunday/Monday: God Particle Record Release @Comet Bar->FEST->Flying Circus @City Club->Need I Say More @ Old Miami->nap?->FEST->Anthology @ the Works
Tuesday: sleep->Old Miami/Slows To Go
There is a chance I might end up on a boat at some point as well.
Shackleton didn't get his visa.
Damn."Dear promoters and event organisers,
Please be assured that Surefire Agency and myself have made every effort to make a successful application and that we are really disappointed not only for ourselves but also, and even more so, for the promoters who have planned events for me and for the people who had possibly been planning to attend the shows. […] I can only express how disappointed I am on behalf of all the people who have made efforts on my behalf.
Many thanks for your understanding
Bummer. Seems to happen every year.
Patrick is going to be pissed.
