Logistics Management

I'm not going to embarass myself again like I did in January by jumping to conclusions about the Blowout. Nope, not this time. I've waited, and now the schedule is out.

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights are all happening simultaneously in Hamtramck, Detroit, and Ferndale. This is not a huge clusterfuck contrived by a cokehead that will be impossible to enjoy. You'll be able to enjoy all three cities within the same night thanks to a unique fleet of shuttle vehicles.

Location, Location, Location

They've announced the dates, but not the place. With only one weekend, the bulk of the blowout can only be held in one city. Should we start taking bets on whether the blowout will be held in downtown Birmingham this year?

Captain Obvious

"A structure called the “Clock House” burned Sunday night at the Heidelberg Project in Detroit, the latest blaze in a series of fires in recent weeks at the world-renowned art installation."

"Earlier this month, the ATF announced it is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those involved in the fires."
(From the Detroit Free Press)

Tyree Guyton won't come out and say it publicly, but it's clear what's going on. Someone who lives in that neighborhood is sick and tired of all the hipster tourists rolling through.

Even though the Heidelberg Project took in over $600,000 in revenue in 2011, they want the public to donate $50,000 to add some security to the neighborhood.
