The interesting thing about this festival is that there are a lot of bands that we have not heard of before. For once it isn't the same old line up playing again. This will be a good chance to check out some new music and maybe discover some new talent.
The best part about this festival is that wristbands are somehow only $10! You have two options when buying tickets. You can order them online here and pick them up at will call or you can buy them at one of 15 retail locations. They include Cafe 1923, Detroit Threads, Rock City Eatery, Lo & Behold, Record Graveyard, Peoples Records, Hello Records, Dearborn Music, Stormy Records, Found Sound, UHF, Flipside Records, Street Corner Music, Melodies & Memories, and Encore Records.
I think this may end up being a really cool festival. I am antsy to get out of my house and I always looked forward to running around Hamtramck during the Blowout. So I am excited that we have a new Ham Town festival to replace that void. To learn more about the festival you can check out their website here or follow them on Facebook.
