I officially declare Ramona Shureb and Sarah Norton of Black Iris Booking the two coolest girls in Detroit. The shows you have brought through Detroit this last year alone have been mind blowing. You have done more for this city and for music than most of us and we cannot thank you enough. Keep the music coming. I have to admit that this latest booking really stepped it up and raised the bar yet again.
This Sunday, August 11th Black Iris Booking presents the Summer Slaughter Tour at The Majestic Theatre. This lineup will feature The Dillinger Escape Plan, Animals As Leaders, Norma Jean, Cattle Decapitation, The Ocean, Rings of Saturn, Periphery, Revocation, Aeon, and Thy Art is Murder. If you have not had the chance to see Dillinger Escape Plan live, it's worth the ticket price just to see them. I also can't wait to check out Periphery and Animals As Leaders. I've heard people rant and rave about both of them.
Sarah and Ramona have given us one pair of tickets to give away to one lucky winner. To enter you must tweet us (@hipindetroit), Facebook us or Instagram us with the tagline #IWantToGoToSummerSlaughter. We will pick the winner Friday and they will be on the list +1 for the event.
This show starts early and goes all day. Doors are at 2 p.m. and all ages are welcome. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door the day of the show. They will also be hosting an after party at 10 p.m. in the Garden Bowl with music by Scorned Deity. The after party is for 18+, so stick around after for more good music and drinking. The Majestic Theatre and Garden Bowl are located at 4120 Woodward Ave. in Detroit.
