The event has expanded to four full nights of music throughout three cities. Everything has changed and become bigger except for the price. Somehow it is only $20 for a wristband that gets you into all 20 venues to see all the bands that are playing throughout the weekend. This year they have mixed locals like Blaire Alise and the Bombshells, Flint Eastwood, Radio Burns, The HandGrenades, James Linck, Little Animal, and Valley Hush with bigger names like Andrew W.K., The Black Lips, PUP, Perfect Pussy, and Fucked Up. There are bands of every genre being represented. This year's venues include Baker Streetcar Bar, The Burns Room, Fowling Warehouse, Garden Bowl, The Huma Room at Hopcat, Jumbos. The Loving Touch, Majestic Cafe, New Dodge. Painted Lady, Paychecks, Plav Post 10, Rust Belt Market, St. Andrew's Hall, 7Brothers. The Shelter, Smalls, W.A.B., Wiskey in the Jar, and Zeke's Rock and Roll BBQ. You can see the full lineup and schedule of bands here.
We also have two pairs of passes to give away courtesy of Metro Times themselves. We will be drawing two winners on Tuesday and they will get two passes to enjoy four nights of fun. To enter, please email your full name to firstname.lastname@example.org with Blowout in the subject. We will be drawing two winners the day before the kick off party and we will give them details on how to claim their prize. Good luck, see you at the show!
