This past half-week and weekend saw the unrolling of the eleventh MetroTimes Blowout music festival.  The opening night was held Wednesday night at the Magic Stick in Midtown, and the remainder of the festival was held in shops and bars throughout Hamtramck.  I was only able to sport my fancy $20 wristband on Friday night when I caught a few bands at the Record Graveyard, the Belmont, and the Whiskey in the Jar.  One of our numerous snowstorms this season hit that night and it was rather foolish to try and navigate the streets of Hamtramck without a map.  The bars were packed, the music organic, and the snowy evening was all the better because the pope was watching over the city.  For a holistic day by day take on Blowout check out Post-Rockist.
